iOS Tip 188: THE QUICK AND EASY WAY TO SET UP A NEW iPHONE (OR iPAD)

When you’re unboxing your new iPhone (or iPad), it’s time to think about how you’ll move your digital life from the old iPhone (or iPad) to the new one.  If your old device is running iOS 11, you can use Quick Start, a new iOS 11 feature that makes the transfer easy. Just turn on the new iPhone, set it next to the old one, and tap Continue when asked whether you want to use your Apple ID to set up your new iPhone (or iPad). An animation appears on the new device for you to scan with the old one, similar to pairing an Apple Watch to your iPhone. Once you’ve done that, follow the rest of the instructions to enable Touch ID or Face ID and then restore your data and settings from your most recent iCloud backup (you can update the backup first if necessary). Leave the two devices next to each other while data is being transferred, and if possible, keep the new one plugged in and on Wi-Fi after setup so it can download your apps, photos, and music from Apple’s cloud-based services. That’s all there is to it, your new device now has the same information and settings as your old one.
