The most important part while upgrading to a new iPhone is the transfer of contents and information from your old device to your new Apple device. Though there are many methods available to migrate the contents of this article we will confine ourselves to the Apple’s tools available i.e. iCloud, iTunes and Move to iOS (for Android users).
This article is divided into two parts – one for iPhone users and the other for Android users for better accessibility of information.
Let’s go ahead with the tutorial.
While upgrading to a new iPhone X or iPhone Xs (Plus), the transfer of contents (apps, music, pictures, videos, messages, account data, and passwords etc.) from your old iPhone to the new one becomes our top priority. This process involves creating a backup of your old device and restoring that backup into your new iPhone. We will be mentioning Quick Start, iTunes & iCloud methods for creating and restoring the backup.
Method -1 Transfer Contents Using “Quick Start”
It’s the most convenient and fastest method and doesn’t require any significant technical knowledge. But this method requires that both iPhones should be running on iOS 11 & later versions. So let’s check out the steps involved in the transfer.
Method -2 Transfer Contents Using iCloud
Apple’s iCloud service is one of the best options available if you want to upgrade to a new iPhone. The whole bunch of information in your old iPhone gets stored in iCloud storage and can be easily restored in your iPhone. This is a selective transfer process and you can choose what to restore.
Follow these steps to create and restore the backup.
Remember: iCloud offers only 5 GB of free storage. If you have heaps of data to be backed up then you should purchase additional storage plans.
Method -3 Transfer Contents using iTunes
The next method on how to switch to the new iPhone is through iTunes services. You need to have a Mac or Windows Computer as the backup is created locally. This is a tedious process but offers an advantage of a local backup which can be downloaded anytime. Check out the steps associated with this method.
Android users who are looking for guidelines on how to switch to the new iPhone can do this by installing Apple’s “Move to iOS” Android app. Before diving into the steps, Android users should take note that only iOS compatible apps will be transferred besides, other contents.
Let’s look into the steps.
5. Open “Move to iOS” app in your Android device. Click continue & Agree to Terms. You will receive a message “Find your Code” (which is on the iPhone device).
