Frequently Asked iPhone Question:

I have games and such on my old phone 4s and I was wondering if I could transfer apps from old iPhone to the new iPhone 5s as well as app saves without jailbreaking. Thanks for the help.

Analysis and Best Answer:

Basically Apple iTunes and iCloud both provide App data and game progress backup. However, these two options are still far away from ideal for below reasons:

  • NOT ALL iPhone game saves (records and progress) are available for iCloud backup because only select-few developers even care to associate their games with iCloud.
  • Besides, iCloud depends much on the network and you only have 5GB space for free. Perhaps that is only good for few giant games.
  • iTunes can backup your iPhone App data onto computer, but every backup and recovery works on your whole device, which means there are lots of Apps that are not necessary to be saved.

On that note, you'd better pick up a flexible iOS Data Transfer - AnyTrans to directly transfer apps from iPhone to iPhone.
