Will restore from backup restore ios to the version prior to an update, or just restore apps etc and keep ios as updated?


Basically I have a 3GS which is on ios4 and I want to upgrade to 6. The pc I originally synced with has died and I'm using a new laptop. When I try to update it says that because it's not the pc I normally sync with it will not save all the apps etc


If I backup first (while still ios4) perform the update, then restore from backup, will it keep the updated ios6, and just restore apps etc, or revert iOS and everything to as it was at backup?


Thanks in advance

iphone, iOS 4

No. iOS will not be 'downgraded' when you restore from your backup.
