    If you already set up the new phone, go to Settings>General>Reset and tap Erase All Content and Settings.  Then go through the setup screens again and when given the option, choose Restore from iCloud Backup.  Note: your new phone will need to be running the same version of iOS or higher as the one you backed up in order to use the backup.  If it isn't, you'll need to update it in iTunes first, set it up as a new iPhone, then take the steps listed above to restore to your backup.
