    hello. got my new iPhone 5s last week. I'm wondering if I can transfer all my old stuff from my iPhone 4 on to it. I didn't download the latest IOS To my iPhone 4 as I didn't want to slow it down. ( I don't think it's possible anyway) it has IOS 7.0.4 installed on it , my iPhone 5s has version 8.1 installed.
    I was planning on transferring everything via iCloud .
    on apples website it says to transfer via iCloud i need both devices to have iOS 5 or later (check) but not whether each device needs the SAME iOS running on them. (iPhone 4 has 7.4.1 and it cannot download later iOS. iPhone 5s has 8.1 )
    anybody got any clues ?

    Yes, you can restore an iCloud back-up made from the iPhone4 to the 5s...

    Or, connect to iTunes... Sync/back-up the 4... Then, connect the 5s to iTunes, and sync & restore the back-up.
