How to Transfer Everything From Your Old to New iPhone

Have you just upgraded your iPhone? You’ll probably want to transfer all your contacts, photos, music, apps, and settings from your old to new iPhone. There are a couple of ways to do it, and we’ll guide you through each of them. As a result, you’ll get the same iPhone with all your files and apps in place. At the same time, it will be a new, more beautiful and powerful device.

Three ways to transfer everything from iPhone to iPhone:

  1. Use Quick Start — if your old iPhone runs iOS 11 or later, you can just place both devices close to each other to automatically set up your new iPhone.
  2. Transfer your data with iCloud— you can create an iCloud backup on your old iPhone and then use it while setting up your new device. All you need is a Wi-Fi connection; you don’t have to bother with plugging your iPhone into a computer.
  3. Restore your iPhone from iTunes — use your Mac or PC to create an iTunes backup. Then, you’ll need to connect your new iPhone to the same computer to transfer your data.

How to switch iPhones using Quick Start

  1. Bring your old and new iPhone close to each other. Make sure Bluetooth on your old device is on.
  2. Turn on your new iPhone.
  3. Your old iPhone shows the Quick Start screen offering you to set up a new device. Tap Continue.
  4. An animation will appear on your new iPhone. Hold your old device over the new one to scan this image.
  5. After your iPhones are connected, wait till the data and settings migrate between devices. Keep both iPhones close to each other.
  6. When prompted, enter the passcode from your old iPhone on your new one as well as your Apple ID password.
  7. Set up Touch ID or Face ID on your new iPhone.
  8. Select if you’d like to restore data from the most recent iCloud backup or backup your old device now and then restore information.
  9. Next, you can change your preferences related to location, Apple Pay, Siri, etc. By default, these settings are the same as on your old device. You’ll also be able to adjust them later in the Settings app.

Now, all your contacts, photos, settings, and other data have moved to your new iPhone.
