The iPhone 7 is here, in any of its variants. We have to renew devices if you are one of the lucky ones who have been able to get an iPhone 7 these days. Today we tell you how the data from your old iPhone to the new iPhone 7/7 Plus in the easiest and fastest way possible. Thus, we will not lose the information we had on our iPhone, such as photographs, videos and applications, just because we have decided to take the step to the last iPhone available in the market. We will create and restore our backup to make the most of the device saving time.
Personally, I and many prefer to configure as “new iPhone“, To maintain cleanliness and clarity in the system, not dragging unnecessary files from one version of iOS to the other. However, when we handle too high a volume of data, this becomes unfeasible, so it is advisable to restore a backup, especially when we do not have backups on our PC / Mac or simply because laziness invades us, it all depends on the User in question. I personally I call you to configure the device as a new iPhone, but still, we are going to show you how to transfer the data from your old iPhone to your new iPhone.
Measures to take into account: Previous steps
Making the backup, always in iTunes
It is true that we have iCloud, but to store as much information as possible we prefer to use iTunes, for this we recommend that you plug in via USB your old iPhone to the PC / Mac on duty. We will start iTunes and look for the option to create a backup. It is advisable that we make a backup by checking the “encrypt copy", So we will make sure to transfer to the security file as much information as possible, such as passwords and application data. We must also ensure that all purchases are transferred to iTunes, for this we click on" file ", then on" devices " Y "transfer purchases".
Now we simply click on the backup button to start saving it, the reality is that iTunes is much faster than the cloud system in iCloud, and more secure.
Transferring the data to our new iPhone 7
This is the way I prefer to use, because it gives less failures. However, if we have made the copy in iCloud, or have several saved, we can select “Restore iCloud backup”, although it will take a little longer to restore it for obvious reasons.
