How long is a iCloud back up saved in iCloud?
I'm trying to get a back up that was saved to iCloud last August to find information in text messages that have since been deleted from the phone. When I erased and restarted the phone, logged into the iCloud account it has a list of 5/6 different restore points but they only go back to October. I upgraded the storage last spring so I know running out of room wasn't a problem. I only back up two devices to the account, an iPhone 6 and an iPad Mini.
Now the original backup was done on an iPhone 6, i'm trying to restore it on an iPhone 5 that has been fully updated. Any issues with that? Really hoping these texts aren't lost for good.
