Question: When I tried to backup my husband's iphone6 to icloud for the first time, I mistakenly downloaded the backup of the old phone instead of uploading the new content to icloud. Now all the recent information and photos are gone. How can I recover this?

It's rather difficult to picture how you could have done this since the only way to initiate a restore from an iCloud backup is to completely erase the phone...

In any case, unless he has a backup of his phone from prior to when you did whatever it was you did, no. The data is gone. A restore completely overwrites the content of the phone.

That is what I thought, too. When the phone was connected to the icloud, I was sure that the " automatically back up" option was selected. And it seemed a straightforward matter. But it ends up different. I feel so bad about myself.
