    i was told to restore my iphone 5s as new instead of back up to totally clear the software and get everything fresh and brand new. i am going to do that so when i add my apps back on should i download them again from the app store or just add them and check them back from my iTunes?

    I would re download them from App Store but I don't think it will hurt via iTunes either

    why would u download from app store rather than check them from iTunes? if the software was defective from my old backup wouldn't that have nothing to do with the apps?

    Everyone has their own personal way of doing this and the either way answer will work is a good one except I would just readd all my apps from what you already have in iTunes. That does not effect the software update at all. Best of luck and you will do fine.

    You're right. That's why either way is fine. As long as the restore is new then the apps won't have previously saved data.
