As the release of iPhone 8/X, they become the most popular Apple products. With their outstanding features, such as TrueDepth camera and wireless charging, iPhone users are getting so obsessed with them.

However, there may be plenty of information remained on your old iPhone like private photos, confidential messages, or some precious videos, which you don’t want to lose, and need to check them as needed.

So how can you move the data you need from old iPhone to the new one? Perhaps with iTunes, iCloud, or some other alternative easier way? In this passage, we will provide 3 ways to solve your problem: how to backup data from iPhone to iPhone.

Part 1. Backup Data from iPhone to iPhone with AnyTrans for iOS

Speaking of data backup, what will come up to your mind firstly? I guess it will be iTunes or iCloud. There’s no doubt that iTunes/iCloud can be free and easy, but they have some shortcomings you may need to know:

  1. iTunes can only backup the whole device, which means you won’t be able to choose a certain data type to backup.
  2. Restoring backup from iCloud/iTunes requires erasing your data on destination iPhone.

For protecting data from loss, why not choose a safer way? Please read the following passage to get more details!

Part 2. Backup Data from iPhone to iPhone with iTunes

iTunes backup is the most original way for iPhone users, but like we mentioned in Part 1, data on the destination iPhone will be erased while restoring backup with iTunes.

So it’s okay if you backup data to a new iPhone; but if there are important data remained on your destination iPhone, iTunes will not be a good choice. Please move to Part 1
if you need a safer way.

Step 1Open iTunes > Connect both iPhones to computer > Click the phone icon in the upper left side > Choose the iPhone you need to make a backup of > Click Back Up Now.

Part 3. Backup Data from iPhone to iPhone with iCloud

iCloud Backup tool is popular among many iPhone users, although its backup process is quick, free and easy to operate, it still exists some disadvantages.

But if you need to keep your data on it, you’d better move to Part 1.
