Hi All,

 

I have just received my iPhone 5 upgrade today...

 

I currently have the iPhone 4 and have used the iCloud to backup my device, i also ran a local backup to my laptop for piece of mind.

 

My question is:

When the iPhone 5 launches its setup wizard and I select the restore using iCloud option, can I stop the Apps from syncing?

 

I want to effectivly have a fresh iPhone with no apps but just copy over all my contacts, emails ect.

 

I have gone into the Settings -> iCloud and a left everything on the inital screen on

I then went to Storage & Backup -> Manage Storage -> My Device and turned off varuous Apps e.g. games I never play.

 

Will this stop them from migrating to my new iPhone 5?

Do I need to delete the Apps from iTunes as well??

 

Or is it better to clean up my iPhone 4 and delete any apps, run an iCloud backup and then just restore onto the iPhone 5?

 

Thanks

:-)
