    I searched this section for answers and did see where @Deacon had done something similar. I am running V1 Driver on a dedicated iPhone 5 (no sim/ service). I have never backed it up to iCloud. I upgraded my main phone and want to replace the iPhone 5 with the iPhone 6S I'm retiring (no sim...). The iPhone 5 is on iOS 10.3.3 and the 6S is on 12.0.1 so I don't think I can do a total backup through iTunes/ iCloud because backups can only be done between the same iOS ver. Is there a way to move my pin history, etc. from the 5 to the 6S? Thanks.

    Backup V1Driver to iCloud and Restore it.

    Exactly as Deacon did. No SIM needed.

    Just WiFi is fine. You do this within V1Driver app. You must use the same account on each phone.

    It might fail the first attempt. Just try again. You must setup iCloud on each phone.

    You can backup the whole phone to iCloud (you can control what gets backed up). It doesn’t matter what version. All it backs up is data for apps.

    iTunes backup is different I’m not sure about what it’s restrictions are but if I recall you can restore individual apps. It might need a min version to have that capability, I don’t remember.

    But doing it through V1Driver is easiest.
