my backup on the iphone 4 is version 6.1.3 and the new iphone won't allow to restore under that version because it is too new... but I can only update iPhone 5 when the new device setting are done.

iPhone 5

    Update your iPhone 5 to iOS 6.1.3 and set it up as a new iPhone.  Then go to Settings>General>Reset, tap Erase All Content and Settings, go back through the setup screens on the phone and when given the option, choose Restore from iCloud Backup.  You will then be able to restore your iPhone 4 backup to your new phone.

    I followed the instructions but I believe when I erase the iPhone it also puts me back to the old version and the option to choose the latest backup is faded on the iPhone 5.

    Erasing the phone does not change the iOS version on the phone.  It will stay at 6.1.3.


    Also, if that is your phone number you shouldn't post it on a public forum like this.  I will ask the forum host to edit it from your post.
