How to transfer everything from an old iPhone to a new one

Before copying the necessary files from one iPhone to another, you need to prepare. What you need to do:

  • For Apple Watch owners, before starting the entire procedure for transferring files, it is very important to turn off the connection between the gadget and the old device. If you do this, the data is automatically backed up by the hour. Accordingly, then it will be possible to restore everything;
  • be sure to create a backup copy of all available information (contacts, calls, records, applications, etc.);
  • prepare an Apple ID, as well as a password;
  • rearrange the SIM card in the new phone in advance. If the card does not fit the device, it is recommended to call your cellular operator.

There are three main ways how you can transfer data from one phone to another:

  • a special feature called “Quick Start”. How it is carried out was described earlier. The main advantage is that all settings and information transfer are automatic. The only condition is that the iPhone or iPad must have firmware version 11 or higher;
  • iCloud cloud storage. In essence, this is creating a backup copy in the cloud and then uploading it to a new device;
  • using a computer and iTunes. A backup copy is also created, but this time on a PC. The convenience of this method lies in the fact that data transmission occurs through a cable, which means that the time is significantly reduced. In addition to iTunes, you can use third-party programs.

How to transfer data to another iPhone via iCloud

How to transfer information via iCloud has already been described many times. The most important thing to do is create a backup. Without this, further work is simply impossible.

How to Transfer Music from iPhone to iPhone

Transferring music, as well as copying basic information, is carried out in several ways:

  • using iTunes. First, the tracks are transferred to the computer, and then to the new device;
  • pre-throw your favorite compositions into the cloud, and then pull them out of there;
  • use the iMusic program. In addition, a transfer cable and a PC are required. The music is saved in iMusic, and then it is dropped onto a new phone. In fact, the program has a functionality similar to iTunes, but is intended specifically for tracks.

How to Copy iPhone to New iPhone

How exactly you can transfer data from one iPhone to another has already been said. However, it is equally important to know how to set up a new iPhone and how to reset the settings on an old one.

The latter, of course, is only done after a cloud backup has been created. What you need to do to perform a factory reset on your old device:

  • Turn on the phone, go to the “Settings” section.
  • Enter the subsection “Cellular data network”.
  • Call the command “Reset settings”.
  • Select “Reset content and settings”.

This starts the process of completely resetting the iPhone to factory settings. If a caller ID or automatic dialing was previously installed on the device, all this will also go away. That is why you need to copy the account in advance, that is, before the deletion process is started.

Important! After a reset, the phone will need to be turned off and then turned on again. The transition to factory settings will already be automatic, and nothing else needs to be done with the old device. Further work is underway only with the new phone.

A complete transition to a new device is accompanied by the fact that you need to turn it on, change the language, translate the time, and the like. If difficulties arise, an assistant is installed in the smartphone, which will prompt what needs to be done. There are different options for how you can customize the phone for yourself. If necessary, you can remove geolocation.

Moving data from the old device is also done through the settings. You must select “Recover from iCloud copy”. After the user is authorized, the download of the backup will begin.

How to transfer data via Quick Start without a PC

How to transfer data from iPhone to iPhone using the “Quick Start” app, step by step:

  • The new phone must be switched on and placed next to the old one. For the data transfer to be successful, the old device must have iOS version 11 or higher installed. The Quick Start screen appears on your new phone. You will be prompted to use the settings with your Apple ID. Check the correctness of the identifier, click the “Continue” button. If the continue function is not displayed, it is recommended to check the Bluetooth connection.
  • An animation should appear on the screen of the new phone. The user needs to pick up the device and fix it over the old iPhone so that the animation is located in the center of the viewfinder. If everything is done correctly, the message “Completing on new (iPhone name)” will appear. You can authenticate manually if for some reason the camera cannot be used.
  • You will be prompted to enter the password on the new device.
  • Enable and configure Face ID or Touch ID, depending on the option selected.
  • When prompted, you should authorize your Apple ID on your new iPhone. If several devices are used at once, for example, also an iPad, then passwords are entered on each separately.
  • You will be prompted to transfer the backup from iCloud or update the backup and then restore the data. The user can independently determine what from the data he needs to download, for example, applications, geolocation, and what not, for example, music. During the transfer, a Wi-Fi connection must be configured.

The procedure is quite simple and automated.

Note! If the user, in addition to the phone, has additional gadgets, for example, an Apple Watch, then during the data transfer, they can be automatically connected.

Transferring data “over the air” is a long process. It is recommended to use Wi-Fi connection and fast Internet.

How to sync iPhone to computer via Wi-Fi?

To sync iPhone and computer, you don’t need to connect the devices to each other with a USB cable every time. Like sharing data via iCloud wirelessly, you can set up the same way to transfer files in iTunes in a few steps.

  • Using the cord, connect the phone as described earlier, then go to the “Settings” of the program and in the “Options” section, check the “Synchronize with this iPhone via Wi-Fi” checkbox.
  • In the “Settings” of the phone, move the “Synchronization over Wi-Fi” slider to the “yes” position.

Now data can be exchanged over the entire coverage area of ​​the home network; it should only be remembered that such synchronization leads to a much faster discharge of the iPhone or iPad.

How to sync iPhone to computer?

The iPhone user has access to music, games, all kinds of applications and even fine-tuning the device. of course, under the vigilant supervision of the manufacturer and within the framework of the latter. Even to create or recover an Apple ID password, you have to share personal data with the system. Syncing your iPhone to your computer isn’t easier; how to do it with minimal loss of time and effort. let’s try to figure it out.

How to sync iPhone to computer?

You can synchronize your iPhone with your computer using two software packages recommended by the developer. “stationary” iTunes and “cloud” iCloud, as well as many third-party applications. The order of the operations described below for the iPhone and iPad is fundamentally the same: both types of devices work under the iOS operating system and are equally controlled by Apple.

An iPhone or iPad owner will need:

  • the device is switched on, working properly and with sufficient charge;
  • a computer or laptop connected to the Internet;
  • USB cable for connecting the device to a PC.

Important: you will not be able to immediately set up communication with the program via Wi-Fi. even if you plan to use an exclusively wireless connection in the future, to install it, you must first connect the equipment according to the “standard” scheme.

If the phone or tablet is not ready for work, before connecting, you should find out what the reason is: you may need to clear the memory on the iPhone, remove unnecessary applications or take the device to a service center. synchronization of faulty equipment is impossible.


iCloud, unlike iTunes, is a completely cloud storage that allows the iPhone owner to synchronize as many devices as he wants without worrying about the safety of files: all data is downloaded to a virtual disk, encrypted and, if necessary, can be restored on the end device.

The most significant drawback of iCloud is the limitation of the amount of memory available to the user. So, by default (free), it can only have five gigabytes; to “improve” the figure to 50 gigabytes, you will have to pay 0.99 per month; up to 200 gigabytes. 2.99 per month and up to 1 terabyte. 9.99 per month.

Before synchronizing the phone with a PC, you should make sure that the device is working properly and is ready for use: for example, if the computer does not see the iPhone, you must immediately find out the reason and eliminate it.

To sync data, the owner of the device must:

  • Log in to the system by entering your Apple ID details in the appropriate fields: email address and previously invented password.
  • If an account has not been created yet, you should use the corresponding link at the bottom of the page. Having come up with a password and providing personal data, the user will have access to synchronization.
  • Now all that remains is to choose, by moving the sliders, which data (contacts, mail, photos, and so on) will be transferred to the “cloud”. If the need for synchronization disappears or the data exchange needs to be temporarily suspended, it will be enough to return the sliders to their original positions.
  • Now you need to set up iCloud on your personal computer. The easiest way is to go to, log in with your Apple ID account information, and go to file management.
  • If you plan to sync data between iPhone or iPad and your computer on a regular basis, the user will not hurt to download the iCloud app. To do this, you need to use the link given at the top of the same page, then in a new window click on the link “Download iCloud for Windows”.
  • Now you need to click on the “Download” button and wait until the file is downloaded to your hard drive.
  • By running the executable file, the user must agree to the terms of use of the application and privacy, and then click on the “Install” button.
  • The installation process, depending on the parameters of a PC or laptop, takes from two to three to twenty minutes. If desired, the owner of the phone can cancel the installation using the button of the same name.
  • When the installation is completed, you should click on the “Finish” button.
  • Restart the computer. some options will be unavailable until a new restart.
  • You can sync data between iPhone and computer right in File Explorer by going to the iCloud folder.
  • Inside the user will find several folders; data in them is easy to delete, move, update and rename.
  • To start synchronization, it is enough to select the data by ticking the corresponding checkboxes, and click on the “Apply” button. the process starts automatically.

Tip: at the end of the synchronization, if you no longer plan to work at the computer, it makes sense to log out of your Apple account by clicking on the corresponding button at the bottom of the window.


The main advantage of iTunes over iCloud is the absence of difficulties with free space: if the “cloud” service does not allow the user to take more than the limit set by the manufacturer, then the program allows you to store on your computer (and synchronize with the iPhone) any amount of information. from a couple of megabytes to hundreds of gigabytes.

The official program from Apple also has a major drawback: synchronization in it is carried out only unilaterally. data is transferred from a PC or laptop to an iPhone or iPad. To copy files to your hard drive, you have to resort to various tricks. or use a third-party application.

Important: You can sync iPhone via iTunes with only one personal computer. If you change the “source”, data on the phone that is not in the new PC will be erased.

Also, the user should keep in mind that the iPhone will sync with the device every time they connect to iTunes. In fact, this means that the data deleted on the computer after the last copying will be automatically destroyed on the phone. in order to keep the “personal library” in order, the owner of the iPhone or iPad will have to constantly store the necessary data on the PC or refuse to sync altogether.

How to sync iPhone with PC via iTunes:

  • Connect your phone or tablet with a USB cable to your computer. Until the end of the work, it is not recommended to pull out the cable or otherwise interfere with the functioning of the application. Launch iTunes. The PC application can be downloaded from any trusted source; installation, depending on the parameters of a computer or laptop, takes from several minutes to half an hour.
  • In order not to interrupt the synchronization in the middle of the process, it is strongly recommended to check the relevance of the program. otherwise, the warning about the need for an update may “come out” at the most inopportune moment. This can be done by clicking the drop-down menu “Help” and then selecting the item “Updates”.
  • It usually takes a few seconds to find updates; if you have difficulty, you should check your internet connection.
  • If the latest version of iTunes is installed, the user will see a corresponding notification. Now you can close the verification window and go to sync iPhone and computer.
  • In a new window, the system will offer the owner of the device to log in by entering his account data, or create a new account.
  • If the registration with Apple has already been made, the user just needs to enter his email address and password in the appropriate fields, and then click on the “Login” button. If the password is forgotten or lost, you should use the recovery form by clicking on the corresponding link under the main fields.
  • If an account does not exist yet, you can create one without leaving the application. To do this, click on the “Create a new Apple ID” button, and then fill out an electronic registration form consisting of several pages, indicating, in particular, your payment details.
  • When you are finally logged into iTunes, the name of the iPhone or iPad will appear in the side menu of the program, and the phone icon will appear at the top, right below the main menu.
  • To sync iPhone with your computer, you should click on this particular schematic image. it’s easier than using the standard “Settings”.
  • On the main page of synchronization, the user will see detailed information about his device. Here, in particular, you can check which cell phone is attached to the iPhone, find out the serial number of the device or, using the button of the same name, restore the iPhone or iPad to factory settings.
  • Scrolling down the page below, the owner of the phone will see in the “Parameters” section the checkboxes needed for synchronization. Synchronization on every connection (first checkbox) is not recommended for the above reason; but limiting the list of data transferred from PC to iPhone or iPad (third) does not hurt. After checking the boxes, you can safely click on the “Apply” button at the bottom of the page.
  • Now all that remains is to select the files for transfer, click on the “Synchronize” button and wait for the process to complete. its duration depends primarily on the amount of information. As already mentioned, you should not disconnect your phone from your computer or laptop before copying is complete.
  • If you do not intend to use the computer connected to the iPhone or iPad in the future, you should log out of your account by calling the drop-down menu “Account”, hovering over the item “Authorization” and selecting the sub-item “Deauthorize this computer”.
  • By clicking on the “Deauthorize” button in the new menu, the user will secure personal data. but in order to sync the iPhone and PC again, he will have to repeat the login procedure in the future.

Tip: if iTunes does not see the iPhone, it makes sense to first check if the phone is neatly connected to the cable, and the latter to the computer, and only then move on to other ways to solve the problem.

Summing up

You can synchronize your iPhone with your computer using the official software from Apple: iTunes or iCloud. In the first case, the data is stored on a PC; in the second. in the cloud.

ICloud sync

The most famous way to synchronize two gadgets without losing information is using Apple’s cloud service. This option is available for those iPhones or iPads running iOS 5. The instructions for synchronization are as follows:

  • First you need to check the connection of your device to the Internet.
  • The duration of the copying process directly depends on the speed of the transmitted information on your Internet channel.
  • You should also consider the size of the database that you decide to synchronize;

After the backup is created, you need to activate the new iPhone. First, you will need to select a country, language, and, if necessary, enable the geolocation service;

  • When the window for setting up a new device opens, you need to select the “Recover from iCloud copy” button, and then enter your personal data.
  • You just have to select the backup of the old iPhone and click the “Restore” button, after which you wait for the data to be downloaded from the cloud service and reboot the device.
