iPhone to iPhone Data Transfer

Congratulations on your new iPhone! There’s nothing quite like the satisfaction of peeling off that protective film from the pristine screen of your brand new device. And if you’re anything like me—someone who tends to be a bit clumsy—a sturdy case is a must-have accessory.

Now, assuming you’re not embarking on a fresh start in a new city, you probably want to seamlessly transfer all your data to your new iPhone so you can dive right into using it. But how exactly do you transfer data from one iPhone to another? It’s actually pretty straightforward, but before you begin, make sure to back up your iPhone and have your Apple ID and password handy (just in case you need to reset your password—we’ve all been there!).

Now that you’re prepared, let’s get started.

How to Transfer Data from iPhone to iPhone

*Total Time: 5 minutes*

What You Need:
– iPhone
– iCloud account

Step 1: Transfer your SIM card from your old iPhone to your new one. If you’re unsure how to do this, Apple provides a helpful video guide.

Step 2: Ensure that your new iPhone is connected to Wi-Fi and that Bluetooth is enabled.

Step 3: Follow the onscreen instructions from iOS’ Quick Start to set up your new phone.

Step 4: When prompted at the “Apps & Data” screen, choose your preferred method of data transfer. Opting to download from iCloud means your data, including apps, will start downloading immediately, allowing you to use your new iPhone while the transfer completes in the background. Selecting direct transfer requires your old and new iPhones to be close together and plugged into chargers.

Step 5: If you’re transferring data directly, ensure both iPhones are near each other and connected to chargers.

Step 6: And you’re all done!

How to Transfer iPhone Backup to Your New iPhone
