How to transfer data from your old iPhone to the new iPhone 7/7 Plus


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 ÔÇťnew iPhoneÔÇť, 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.

<li><strong>Update your old iPhone to the latest available version:</strong> The reason we do this (yes, I would also be lazy), is that backup copies from one version to another can cause errors, so we advise you to update your old iPhone to the latest available. Exactly the same with the new iPhone, the latest version available just released the iPhone 7 is iOS 10.0.1. When we have updated our iPhone 7, we will go to the General section of the Settings to select Reset and erase all data.</li>
<li><strong>Apple Watch</strong> Touch unpair: We must unpair the Apple Watch from the iPhone if we don't have problems using the Apple Watch with the next device, the iPhone 7.</li>
<h2><span id=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 ÔÇťencrypt 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.

<p>The time has come, we are in the iPhone 7 configuration screen. We will move forward in the settings until the ÔÇťApps & DataÔÇŁ window appears. In this case it will give us several options:</p><div class='code-block code-block-6' style='margin: 8px auto; text-align: center; display: block; clear: both;'>
<div data-ad=

  • Restore iCloud backup
  • Restore iTunes backup
  • Set up as a new iPhone
  • Transfer data from Android

We will select the option of ÔÇťRestore iTunes backupÔÇť, In this way you will ask us to plug the device via USB to PC / Mac with iTunes already open. Once inside we will see a list with our latest backups, we will select the most recent one for obvious reasons.

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 ÔÇťRestore iCloud backupÔÇŁ, although it will take a little longer to restore it for obvious reasons.

Now we just have to wait for the whole procedure to be done and we will have our previous iPhone data on our iPhone 7, so that we can enjoy it to the fullest and without limits.
