Upgrading BIG IP LTM appliances

We are upgrading our 3400 HA pair to a 6900 HA pair. Currently, we're running 9.4.8, but plan on updating to the latest 10.x version as part of the upgrade procedure. While there is a lot of info about updating the software, I couldn't find much in terms of upgrading to a newer appliance. I imagine I could use UCS to copy the settings over to the new units, but I would have to downgrade the software to 9.4.8. Then, after the UCS was imported, run the upgrade to 10.x.


Does this seem right? If you're aware of any kind of appliance upgrade procedures or best practices, please point me in the right direction.
