We store a lot of information on our iPhones, so it’s important that we can easily and quickly transfer it from one phone to another when we buy a new iPhone. A process for which we are fortunate to have multiple options and resources a most comfortable transfer.
While it’s true that the process itself can take some time depending on the amount of information to be transferred, it’s also true that most of the process requires us to simply wait. Once we have taken the first steps, our iPhone will take care of it we can quickly start enjoying it.
Transfer all our data from iPhone to iPhone
There are a few things to consider before you start transferring data. The first is that if we use an Apple Watch we must unpair it from the previous iPhone before configuring it on the new iPhone, after having transferred all the information to it. Also in all cases it is a good idea have a backup of the device. It is also necessary that we keep in mind both our Apple ID and password (if we need it we can recover it) and that if we use an eSIM we contact the operator to get a duplicate for the new iPhone to request.
Here we have arrived three options for transferring information: Use Quick Launch, iCloud Backup, or Backup to a Mac or PC. In the first case, the quick start, the steps to be followed are:
- We turn on the new device and place it near the current one.
- On the current iPhone, a screen will appear that offers us to use the quick launch. We choose it.
- When the animation appears on the new iPhone, let’s focus it with the current one so that they can identify.
- We wait for the message “Finish on the new iPhone” to appear.
- In the new iPhone we enter the code of the current device and then configure Face ID or Touch ID.
- on the screen of Transfer iPhone datawe press Continue.
Now it only remains Let’s keep both devices together and preferably plugged into an outlet until the transfer is complete.
Transfer all our data via iCloud or a backup
if we prefer Use an iCloud backup, the process is also really simple. Let’s also remember that if we recently bought a new iPhone, Apple offers us unlimited iCloud storage for several days to run the copy and restore it on the new iPhone. Something we can do something about directly from settings > Generally > Transfer or reset iPhone. Whether it is this type of copy or one that we already have in the cloud, we just have to decide Restore with an iCloud backup when setting up the new iPhone and that’s it.
The process is very similar when we choose Use a backup from a Mac or PC. All we have to do is back up the current iPhone using Finder or iTunes, set up the new iPhone and finally select it Recovery from Mac or PC. Then we simply connect the device to the computer, open iTunes or Finder, select the device and touch Restore Backup.
As we can see, all systems are really simple. If we already have a backup in the cloud, transferring all the information to our new iPhone is as simple as selecting the option during configuration. Meanwhile, if we prefer to transfer directly or use our Mac for assistance, we also achieve the same goal: Enjoy our new iPhone in minutes.
