iPhone Data Transfer

Congratulations on your new iPhone purchase! There are few ways to transfer applications (software) and data (messages, emails, photos and videos) from your old iPhone to your new one. Ensure that both your iPhones have enough battery power. It is a good idea to use the cable that came with the iPhone for transfer through a Mac computer.

Quick Start

Quick Start is a built-in feature that enables wireless data transfer from your old iPhone to your new one. To use Quick Start, ensure that both devices are connected to Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth is enabled. Then, power on your new iPhone and follow the on-screen instructions to begin.

During Quick Start, you have the option to choose between phone-to-phone transfer or restoring from iCloud if your old iPhone is backed up to iCloud. It’s essential to note that for phone-to-phone transfer, you’ll need to wait for the transfer to complete on both devices before you can use either iPhone. So, it’s best to do this at a time when you don’t need to use your phone frequently.

Using a Mac Computer

To begin, connect your iPhone to your Mac computer using the USB cable. Next, open the Finder app, select your iPhone from the sidebar on the left, and click “Back up all the data on your iPhone to your Mac.” Then, choose “Back up now.”
