    Default How to set up a used iPhone 5S from an iCloud backup of an iPhone 4S?

    The iPhone 5s was partially set up at phone store, but I didn't have an iCloud account. They told me to set up iCloud account and I'd be able to finish moving info/apps to newer phone.

    The 5s doesn't show "choose backups" as an option. Do I have to start over?

    Default Re: How to set up used iPhone 5s from iPhone 4s from iCloud

    If you've performed an iCloud backup using the iPhone 4S, then you should be able to restore that backup to your iPhone 5S.

    1. On the iPhone 5S, go to Settings - General - Reset, and then select "Erase All Contents and Settings".

    2. When the process is complete, you will be greeted with the welcome screen.

    3. After you've selected the desired language, you will be prompted to either restore from a backup or set up as a new device. Choose the restore from backup option.

    4. Choose to restore from an iCloud backup.

    5. Select the iCloud backup that you last made of your iPhone 4S.

    6. Let it do its thing.
