    Just curious. I want to go from 6.1.4 to 7.0, if I connect to itunes then restore from new first (this will make my phone get a fresh install of 7.0), then once the device restarts, then I select restore from backup, is it the same or different if I just update right away from 6 to 7?

    Well if you do a clean install then you are going to only get back the things on your iCloud or iTunes back up, vs if you just update, everything remains intact. I would say just update first, if you have issues, that is when you would want to look at higher level things like clean installs, restore as new, etc.

    That is ok with me if I get only things from icloud or itunes because I always prefer clean install, but I m just curious if it is the same thing. Thanks.

    Not quite the same as the fresh install would also delete all your apps and the the restore would re-install them, so your apps would all be fresh installs as well, which I have been known to do myself at times when I feel an app is not behaving correctly.
