3GS to 4S
My friend has a 3GS and has just upgraded to a 4S.
iCloud is switched on and has recently run a back up this morning.
We are taking the 4S out of the box in the next couple of hours. But she has a buyer for the 3GS now with cash or they will go and buy another now.
Anyway my question is - iCloud restores your device to exactly how it was before. I know it does this for a fact as my Mrs exchanged her 4S for a new one as it was faulty.
She turned the phone on restored from iCloud and it was like the phone had never changed. It even had 5.1, when 5.1.1 was out, which i couldn't understand. May be it was coz 5.1 was still being signed.
Now with the 3GS going to the 4S will this do the same, but transfer her old info onto the new 4S which is straight out of the box.
I'm guessing it will install 5.1.1 and then restore the backup just like itunes does.
I'm sure this is going to be the case, but was just wanted to check as the device is changing and I have only seen it done from 4S to 4S (same device).
I don't want to promise my friend that all of her stuff will be there on her new phone without another members opinion.
Sorry to go on - I should of just said will it restore via iCloud from 3GS to 4S?
