    Can I use an iPhone 5s backup file and restore it into a brand new 5c?

    It should work. The backups are tied to your data, not the device itself. That's why even if you backup a device, it will just give you back your data only. It won't restore a former OS,Jailbreak, etc.

    I have to say that is an interesting question and I wish I knew the answer..lol but what Septembersrain said has a bit of a point to it. Just don't know enough to say yes.

    It won't discriminate between the devices? Ah, so it simply transfers the data over, I see...

    Thank you!

    Yeah, that's why people run their backups onto their new devices all the time. Makes it easier to get their stuff back. =)

    You're welcome!

    It should work as long as the iOS version of the device you are restoring to is the same as or higher than the iOS version you took the backup on.
