Question: How to use a new iphone backup, on an older device? (iPhone 4)

I have made a backup in iTunes, from a newer iPhone 7. I got rid of the phone, and want to use this backup on my older iPhone 4. Keep getting errors that the ios is too old, even though i have updated it as far as i can. Is there any way to fix this?

iPhone 4, iOS 7.1.2

Answer:

No there is no fix. You cannot restore a backup made with a newer version of iOS than is on the device you are restoring to. And there is no way to update an iPhone 4 beyond iOS 7.1.2.
