    One question, does the first option pass everything as it is on the original iPhone to the new iPhone? I ask this more than anything because on the original iPhone I have some apps that are no longer in the AppStore and that I have tried to download on other devices (such as iPad) and there has been no way, and I would like not to lose them on the new iPhone.

    Thanks and regards.

      Well, I've never tried it but I would say no, because the apps are downloaded from the App Store, so if they are not available, they will not be installed. Another thing is that they do not appear but are still available. You can check it within your App Store account, in the Purchased apps. Sometimes they are not available in the App Store but they are within your purchases.

        Thanks Luis for the answer.

        The fact is that one of the apps in question is ┬źGSE IPTV┬╗ and it is no longer available in the Store (I tried to download it on my last iPad and it didn't let me), hence my doubt about transferring everything from one iPhone to another leaving it the same on both devices, since the app cost me ÔéČ5 back in the day.

          Well, by chance I also have that app purchased and no, it cannot be downloaded in any way or by accessing your purchased apps.
