Microsoft recently announced their sweet little update to the Windows Phone platform that is the Windows Phone 8.1 with many new interesting features. Now for all of you who were waiting for the option to backup and restore your entire START SCREEN across devices, it is now possible with WP 8.1. Also restoring will also restore all app data.
All your tiles will be restored to your device with all of your START SCREEN images and icons maintained as it was. However this doesn’t mean the apps will be restored, it has to be downloaded manually again from the Windows Store and until the install is done, the restored tile for the app appears greyed out.
So have a happy time backing up and restoring across devices.
