I'm going to be visiting an Apple Store so they can check my iPad for a data use issue today. Will I lose the game achievements that my kids and I have if I do that? I've backed up to the cloud last night.
That data, if I understood some earlier reading I did, is stored only in the backup or on your phone. Therefore, if you get a new iPad, you do not want to set up as new but restore from Cloud backup. Hopefully that does work.
if the game backs itself up through game center, it should recognize your progress when you log back in. other games offer backing up data though icloud. it all depends. which games exactly are you inquiring about?
