It just restored photos that I deleted a couple of years ago and messages for the first of 2016 but nothing is current

Answer:
Answer:

It sounds like you restored a backup of the iPhone 4 to the 6S, and the newest backup you have was from the time of those messages and photos. Restoring a backup replaces everything on the phone with the contents of the backup.
