View Full Version : IOS 5 to IOS 7 issues?

19th October 2013, 02:25 PM
About to pass my iPhone 5 to my wife to replace her iPhone 4 still running IOS 5. She hates change hence staying with IOS 5. If I back up her phone in iTunes on her PC and then put my iPhone 5 in running IOS 7 and restore will it all come back looking as it did before? Ie all intact as far as photos, calendar, contacts and mail. Do you lose your camera roll? Hers is extensive.

You can't downgrade to iOS 5.

If you do an encrypted backup of her phone iTunes and them restore to the iPhone 5 and it will be as though it's the same phone content wise, but will be running whatever iOS is currently on the iPhone 5 (sounds like iOS 7).
