    In a few days (weeks ?) iOS 11 will be released, and I'm looking forward to have it installed on every iDevice I own ( iPhone 7, iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 4, not to speak about my wife's iPhone 5S and my son's iPhone SE).
    On my primary device, the iPhone 7, I have some very important apps, like password manager and home banking app, and I'm not sure if they will be completely restored (content included) with an iCloud backup.
    To have a "clean" installation I'm planning to update iOS via iTunes (is that correct ?) instead of the OTA upgrade, and my question is: how to have ALL the data restored on my phone ? Is that possible ? Do I have to make an iTunes backup and restore that ?
    I'm also interested in keeping my health data, collected with my Apple Watch.
    Thank you for the precious help.

    Do you have an iCloud backup?
    I wouldn’t worry too much about losing any data. I tend to update OTA and have never lost anything during the process.

    For the Apple Health data, the Apple Support document below mentions that iTunes backups have to be encrypted, or you could use iCloud Backup.

    I'm a little worried about an OTA update for such a big change... On the other side I don't want to lose settings and app data on my iPhone. I think the iTunes encrypted backup is the only option I have in this case.
