    My iPhone has been having storage issues lately, meaning "Other" has taken up the other half of my phone's storage. I have been told to back it up, then erase my phone, then restore from backup. Pretty straight forward, but I'm concerned on what info I'm going to lose such as contacts, logins through the mail app, and tabs in Safari.

    If you restore from a back up, you shouldn't lose anything.

    You'd lose anything that you've done since the date and time of the backup. If you have iCloud Photo Library enabled your photos should remain safe.

    Are you talking about open Safari tabs? I honestly don't know if those will restore; it's not really something I worry about. As far as bookmarks go, those will restore.

    As I recall, open tabs are still there in Safari. But you could always bookmark those you want to keep. The bookmarks remain even if you set up as new, as long as you use iCloud.
