Hi. If you still have the previous phone, do an iCloud backup so that all your apps and everything else is backed up. After that's done, on your new phone in the setup screens you'll be asked if you want to either set it up as a new iPhone, or restore from an iCloud backup. In this case choose iCloud backup and your apps will begin to download and eventually be installed. If you had them in folders, the folder structures will be maintained too. This is great for those folks who have their apps organized. If you only have a few apps this won't take long but if you have a lot this may take a couple of hours. you can also restore via iTunes but someone else will have to explain that, as I'm not really familiar with the process. I always choose iCloud backups. I hope this helps a bit.
