Thank you for your reading and interest in the news 4 ways to set up the new iPhone 13 and now with full details
Aden – Yasmine Abdullah Al-Tohamy – Apple released its new iPhone 13 lineup last week, and they will be shipped early on Friday, September 24. If you’re getting an iPhone 13 soon, make sure you’re ready to set up the new phone and transfer data to it from your old phone.
Here are the most important options for setting up your new phone, according to the CNET website:
Restore a recent iCloud backup to iPhone 13
The easiest and fastest way to set up your new iPhone 13 is to restore from a recent iCloud backup. Click Restore from iCloud Backup, sign in with your Apple ID, then choose the latest backup for your old iPhone.
If the backup is older than a day or two, it is recommended to create a new backup. To do this, open the Settings app on your old phone and find iCloud Backup (click the icon), then select Back Up Now.
Once you’re done, go back to your new iPhone and mark the backup you just created as what you want to use to restore from. Your phone will then restore your settings and preferences, and you should be able to start using it in about 15 minutes.
Once everything is restored, you’ll need to sign back in to any accounts you’ve added to your phone, as well as go through your apps and make sure you’re still signed in.
Use the direct transfer method from Apple
During the setup process, you will be asked if you want to transfer apps and information directly from your old iPhone to your new device. This feature was first introduced with iOS 12.4.
The tool is easy to use. Make sure you have both phones, preferably plugged in and charged to make sure the battery doesn’t run out, Wi-Fi and enough time to finish the process. It may take more than an hour. The more information you have on your phone, such as photos in your camera roll, the longer it will take. When the transfer begins, the phones will show you an estimate of the time.
Use your Mac or PC to transfer your data to iPhone 13
This method is one of the best, as it not only transfers all your apps, settings, and preferences, but also means that you don’t have to sign into countless apps on your phone.
Before you can use this method, you will need to create an encrypted backup of your current iPhone.
On a Mac, use the Finder to back up your old iPhone. Just be sure to check the Encrypt backup box and enter a password that you’ll remember when prompted. Let your Mac run on its own, and it will notify you when it’s done.
Open Finder or iTunes, and connect your phone to your computer. Click Trust when prompted, then follow the instructions, and select the backup you just created as what you want to use to restore the phone. You will need to enter the backup password before starting the process, so be sure not to forget it.
Once you’re done, your new phone will be an exact copy of your old phone and you won’t have to spend any time logging into random apps or accounts.
Transfer data from Android device to iPhone 13
The Move to iOS app, available on the Play Store for free, allows you to transfer the most important information from your Android phone to your iPhone, such as contacts, website bookmarks, mail accounts, calendars, photos and videos. All you have to do is download it to your device and follow the instructions.
