    Default migration to 7+

    New to IOS and switching to another IOS device to a 7+, is the best way to do this is a icloud back up and then recover from icloud?
    Or is backing up via itunes a better option?

    As long as you have enough storage in the cloud that's what I would recommend. I did that for my 6s plus and plan on doing it again for my 7 plus.

    IMHO always better with restoring from an iTunes encrypted backup. Whatever you do, never forget the password you used when you encrypt the backup. It's not pretty..
