If you have an iCloud account, then this is probably the best way to transfer data, if you don’t currently hold an account with iCloud then read the article entitled Transferring Data From One iPhone to Another, Using iTunes

For those with an iCloud account follow these easy steps:

1. On your iPhone tap the Settings options and then navigate to iCloud. Here you will see another option labelled Storage & Backup. Make sure that iCloud Backup is on. Performing a backup can take some time, depending on the amount of data you have on your iPhone.

2. As soon as Step 1 has completed, you will need to turn on your new iPhone and complete the setup assistant (selecting your language, country and location services). Make sure you chose Wi-Fi network at this stage.

When asked, choose “Restore from iCloud Backup,” tap next, and enter your Apple ID and password.

3. You will then get a screen where you can see the backup that was made on your old device. Select this option and wait for the data to restore from the backup. Again, this can take some time depending on the amount of data that has been backed up from your old iPhone.

4. The final step will just be the phone restarting after the full restore, and the syncing with iTunes. Music, videos, and apps won’t be backed up so connecting your new iPhone to iTunes will make sure that all these are synced and saved.

If your old iPhone is redundant, then you may also be interested in recycling the device through our specialised iPhone landing pages. Blog
