It’s possible that you’re seeking for a solution to transfer your data if you’ve had an iPhone for a long and are planning to upgrade or even downgrade to another model.
To make the data transfer from one iPhone to another as easy as possible, Apple offers users a variety of methods. In this piece, we’ll go through each technique in more detail.
How can I transfer data from iPhone to iPhone?
Three fundamental methods exist for transferring data between iPhones:
- Quick Start
- Transferring via computer: PC or Mac
Quick Start Method
Bring both of your iPhones—the old and the new. After that, make sure the old iPhone has Bluetooth turned on.
To get to the Quick Start screen, follow the steps
In order to access the Quick Start screen, turn on your new iPhone and then follow the on-screen instructions. Your old phone’s setup screen will appear at the same time. Simply make sure the lock is off.
Scan the image shown on new iPhone
Then, an image or animation should appear on your new iPhone. Use your old iPhone to scan the image, then hit Proceed.
Tap on Transfer from iPhone
Following that, you must adhere to the guidelines on your brand-new iPhone. Keep your iPhones close at hand, please!
When you reach the Transfer Your Data phase, choose Transfer from iPhone rather than Download from iCloud. Afterwards data transfer will begin. Wait for the settings and data to transfer between the two connected iPhones.
All of your contacts, images, settings, and other data will have been transferred to your new iPhone once the procedure is finished.
Only iOS 11 or later versions can use this.
Go to iCloud on your phone
Open the Settings app on your old iPhone, choose your Apple ID profile from the list at the top, and then choose iCloud.
Select what you want to backup to iCloud
After that, go through the list of apps and decide which ones you want to use for iCloud backups. Tap or toggle to the ON or OFF position depending on the available option.
Tap on Set Up Manually
Choose your language and location when your new iPhone starts up, then click Set Up Manually on the Quick Start menu.
Select your Wi-Fi
Press Next after selecting a Wi-Fi network, then wait a short while.
Choose Restore from iCloud Backup
Next, on the Applications & Data page, choose Restore from iCloud Backup. The subsequent steps resemble Fast Start steps.
Select the latest iCloud Backup
After entering your iCloud Apple ID, select the most recent iCloud Backup. The new iPhone will receive the data transfer.
You may configure your phone to automatically backup files to iCloud. Turn on iCloud Backup by looking for it in the settings.
A free iCloud account can only have 5GB of storage, please note. If you need extra space, select Manage Storage. You have the option to pay for 50GB, 200GB, or 2TB of storage after selecting Change Storage Plan.
You can extend the storage limit for free by using the method detailed at the end of the article.
You will need to use more space if you want to backup your complete iPhone to iCloud.
Transferring via a Windows PC
If you haven’t already, download and install iTunes on your computer. Then, use a lightning wire to connect your old iPhone to a computer.
Backup your phone to a PC
Following installation, open iTunes and choose Summary from the left-hand menu. Click Back Up Now after selecting This Machine in the Backups section.
Select Set Up Manually
Follow the directions to navigate to the Set Up Manually area of the Quick Start menu when your new iPhone starts up. After that, tap it.
Select Restore from Mac or PC
Once you get at the Restore from Mac or PC option on the Apps & Data page, continue following the on-screen directions. Continue to adhere to the on-screen instructions to complete the process.
Transferring via a Mac
Open the Finder after that, and from the left-sidebar menu, select your iPhone.
Select Backup iPhone to Mac
Choose Back Up Now after clicking Back up all the data from your iPhone to this Mac.
Tap on Set Up Manually and proceed
When a new iPhone boots up, choose Set Up Manually from the Quick Start option that appears. Follow the on-screen instructions until you click Restore from Mac or PC on the Apps & Data tab.
How to activate extra storage in iCloud
Tap on Transfer or Reset iPhone
Apple has included the Prepare for New iPhone option, which provides free temporary storage space in iCloud for 21 days, to make the process as smooth as possible.
Please choose General from Settings to accept this offer. Then, pick Transfer or Reset iPhone at the bottom of the screen.
Select Get Started under the Prepare for New iPhone option
You’ll see the Prepare for New iPhone option at the top of the screen. Choose “Get Started.”
To make the extra storage available, tap Proceed.
Finally, you have the opportunity to request an additional 21 days if you think that 21 days is not enough time.
Transfer all your data to your new iPhone!
While iOS has made things simple, Android to iPhone transferring methods can occasionally be confusing and difficult to understand.
The simplest approach to keep a bank full of data available for transfer to another iPhone is via an iCloud storage backup, which other Apple products can access.
Depending on your network speed or the data transfer capability of your PC, the methods outlined above could take a few minutes to many hours. For future transfers, you can also activate the automated backup feature.
