transfer ios 12 content to ios 13 new device.

A new iPhone 11 Pro, presumably running iOS 13.  An old iPhone 6 running latest available iOS 12 for that release. iCloud backup for iPhone 6 is kept current.  Verizon's instructions for transferring data old->new using iCloud backup (https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/knowledge-base-212893/) says, in part: "Both devices must have the same iOS version."  Punt.

I presume that (a) this sentiment is only the usual "not made here" syndrome and that (b) a restore from iCloud will Just Work (r) as Apple is usually pretty good at this stuff.  But I thought I'd ask anyway:

Has anyone out there migrated their existing, older data from iCloud on to an 11 Pro and done so successfully?

TIA.

Oscar

It appears that the One True Path is described at:

I'll find out how well QuickStart works.

This page wasn't very helpful at all: https://www.verizon.com/wireless-devices/smartphones/iphone-setup-activate/

no, they don't need same ios, just did the same from 6+ to 8+.

you have the 12 backed up, side by side, start setup on 13, connect wi-fi, sign in to apple, get verification.

backup new from last icloud backup.
