    I have iPhone5 which as 8.2.1 version and have recently acquired 5s with only 7.0.x. I'm trying to restore my data from icloud but when I do so, it tells me that my 5s needs to be updated to 8.2.1 first. I'm stuck because there's no option to update it. I really need to sync them together and give away iPhone 5 afterwards.

    How can I update but still be able to restore from icloud.

    Many thanks

    The 5S should be upgradeable to iOS 8.1.2. Open settings, general, software update and download and install the update.
