Loading Iphone 4s backup on to Iphone 5

If you already have a 4s I assume most people would backup their 4s in Itunes and then when activating the Iphone 5 they would restore from the backup so apps, contacts, etc are loaded. If the 4s is still running IOS 5 when the backup occurs will the Iphone 5 be updated with IOS 5 or will it keep IOS 6.  I assume it keeps IOS 6 but just wanted to make sure I didn't need to upgrade my 4s to IOS 6 prior to backing it up one last time.

nah you dont need to. all the backup really does it put back on pictures contacts and some other stuff, then you can sync your apps and music.

Hi vikingdad,

Great question! When backing up a device to iTunes it will only sync the phone specific information you have selected like your mail, contacts, pictures, and calendars. It will not for any reason change your iPhone 5 IOS 6 to the IOS 5 that was on your 4S.

Thank you,
