Getting a new iPhone is exciting but transferring data from your old phone to your new iPhone can be a tedious process. Fortunately, there are several ways to transfer data from your old phone to your new one without using iCloud.In this guide, we will explore the three primary methods to switch data between phones. Each of these methods has its pros and cons so you can choose the one that suits your needs best.
Method 1: Quick Start
If you have an old iPhone that runs on iOS 11 or later, Quick Start is the easiest way to transfer data to your new iPhone. The Quick Start feature allows you to transfer data wirelessly from your old iPhone to the new one.To start, ensure that a stable WiFi connection is available on both phones. Turn on your new iPhone and place it beside your old phone. You should see a message pop up on the old iPhone asking if you want to set up a new iPhone. Tap the continue button and hold the new phone up to the camera on your old iPhone. Your old iPhone will display a message asking you to enter your old iPhone’s passcode on your new phone. Enter the code and tap the “transfer from iPhone” option to transfer everything to the new phone.
Method 2: iTunes Backup
This method is a bit more complicated, but it’s still user-friendly. To use iTunes Backup, you need to have a computer and the latest version of iTunes installed. Connect the old phone to your computer, launch iTunes, and choose to Back up Now. Wait until the backup is complete, and then connect your new iPhone to the computer and select the backup you just made to restore it to your new iPhone. The transfer speed depends on the size of your data. This method might take a while, but it’s a reliable way to transfer all your data from your old iPhone to your new one, including your settings, photos, and app data.
Method 3: iCareFone
If you have a lot of data to transfer, consider using Tenorshare iCareFone. iCareFone is a user-friendly tool designed to free backup your iPhone, extract iPhone backup, and manage your iPhone data. Download and install iCareFone on your computer, connect your iPhone to the PC, and launch the program. Choose Backup and Restore, select the files you want to backup, select a location to save the file and click backup. Once the backup is complete, view the backup data and click Restore to Device to complete the transfer. Unlike Quick Start, which can only transfer certain types of data, iCareFone allows you to transfer all your data including your contacts, messages, and app data with ease. Plus, you can selectively backup data you need and restore them to any device.
In conclusion, the transfer process is now easier and effortless if you use any of these methods to transfer your data to your new iPhone. Quick Start is perfect for small data size and makes the transfer quite effortless. The iTunes Backup method is user-friendly but takes a long time, whereas iCareFone is the best when dealing with large files, and it also allows you to selectively backup and restore when necessary. No method is better than the other, so choose the one that suits your needs and get ready to enjoy your new iPhone without losing your valuable data!
