Plug in to iTunes via USB, sync (which creates a backup) then plug new phone in and restore it from the old backup. Moves pretty much everything across.

I thought you simply logged into the new iPhone with your old Apple ID and it does it for you? as long as you don't select "Set up as a new iPhone"

Make sure 1st iPhone is using icloud (and backed up with it)
Set up the 2nd iPhone using icloud  and choose the backup of the 1st iPhone.

I would suggest, sync it up to iTunes (PC/Mac) and use encryption on backup. Once that is done, plug the new iPhone in, and it will offer to restore from a previous iPhone backup. The reason with encryption turned on is, all passwords related and some system data will be able to restored without prompting user for configuration, or in some cases, configure from scratch.

You can use iCloud sync (backup/restore) but it will be slow as it will be over WiFi, so if you're nearby to a computer, it is probably easier and faster doing it through computer.

Either the iCloud or ENCRYPTED iTunes methods should transfer all data and settings and basically 'clone' one phone to the other, with the proviso that they must both be on the same IOS version to do so.

This has worked successfully for me for data all the way back through my iPhone upgrades for the last 5 years. (3G>4>4S>5)

If the computer that you backup to isn't the usual computer for syncing, it will prompt to transfer purchases over. In most cases, it will not have all the apps in that computer. I can't remember if the apps get backup to computer or not.. I do know encryption can save your headache - with configurations and settings - when restoring!!!

If the itunes store authentication details are the same on the phone and the computer, then it should copy apps on the phone to the computer when you sync it (then back the other way when restored).

I just did this today using itune. At some time during the process itunes asked me if I wanted the apps downloaded onto the new phone. I used these instructions as a guideline.

It took about an hour and a half from start to finish to move everything across. ( I had a 64gb iphone).

need to do the 'encrypted' backup for it to take all the data across? 

http://support.apple.com/en-us/ht2109 
"Back up and transfer. 
First, back up your old device using iTunes. You can also encrypt the backup so that it remembers the passwords for your email, Wi-Fi, and more when you transfer to the new device. Otherwise, you can re-enter these passwords on the new device."

Hi - Must admit I'm curious as to how you could tell the 'app data' was on the new phone without the apps being there?

If game saves, app data etc are not required then it's always an easy process to d/l apps onto any iOS device by using your iTunes a/c email & password - the apps are tied to the a/c and should be able to be re-downloaded at any time and with iOS 8 I believe they've made it easier to share apps within a family.
