    Default Restore or start from Scratch

    Ok, so I have 311 apps, 339 songs, 115 videos 3428 pictures on my iPhone 5 and my iPhone 6 arrives on Friday.

    Do I do a backup and restore or do I start from scratch?

    I don't link my phone to my MAC I normally do an iCloud backup and thats all

    your suggestions please.....

    Thanks

    If you have your pics and videos backed up some other way -- Dropbox or OneDrive or iPhoto or some such -- start fresh.

    If not, and if you want ready access to your existing photo library, then backup and restore.

    What's the benefit from starting over if you want all your apps back on?

    The only reason to start from scratch is because thats what the guys at apple told me to do to fix my wifi problems.

    PeltFrrelken - Yes 311 Perhaps we should start a thread on how many people have.
