Hi hi hi. I'm not sure I'm posting this in the right place but I have what I think is a bit of a dumb question. I picked up a 5S on Friday morning and activated it in the store, then updated it to iOS 7.0.1 when I got to work (OTA using wi-fi). So I've used the phone since then, downloaded all the free Apple apps, set up my email and a bunch of things I use iCloud for are all good on the new phone.
But now (after almost 48 hours of using the phone) I have updated iTunes on my PC and I plug the phone in, it is asking me to set up as new OR restore from a backup of my iPhone 4. I don't want to do either of these things. I activated it as new on Friday and have since done a bunch of stuff to the phone that I don't want to lose.
If I select 'set up as new' will I lose the apps and stuff that I have done since Friday?
