Your old iPhone must contain many of your important data, such as photos, music, videos, contacts, messages, notes, etc. when you get your shiny or matte new iPhone 7(plus) or iPhone 8/X, you'll need to transfer all your old data to its new home. At this moment, you may have some common questions, like: how can I switch to a new iPhone? Or, how do I transfer all my data from my old iPhone to my new iPhone? We'll walk you through the two absolutely easy and free methods to transfer all data from iPhone to iPhone.

To be honest, you indeed can transfer data between iPhones without a computer, and the only way is using iCloud backup and iCloud syncing. However, the iCloud methods have some previous defects, like, takes a long time, and have the high requirement for Wi-Fi network, and some unexpected situations also occurred randomly, like data loss, restore failed. Therefore, even if you can make it without the computer, we still suggest you that you should transfer data from iPhone to iPhone on computer with iTunes or other iPhone data transfer software for 100% safe and smooth.

iTunes will transfer all your data, for example, messages, email accounts, photos, notes, music and other personal settings to your new iPhone.

Part 1 Transfer Data from iPhone to iPhone via iTunes

Step 1: Update your iTunes to the latest version. Connect your old iPhone to a computer via a USB cable. Select your iOS device in iTunes, right-click the device and select Back Up.

Step 2: When the backup is completed, turn off your old iPhone and select your Wi-Fi network.

Step 3: When prompted to set up, choose “Restore from iTunes Backup,” tap next, and enter your Apple ID and password.

Step 4: Connect your new iPhone to iTunes (on the same computer you used to back up your old iPhone). Choose to restore from backup and continue (Ensure that iTunes is showing you the latest backup of your old iPhone). Then your all data will transfer from old iPhone to the new one.

When transferring data from one iPhone to new iPhone 7(plus) or iPhone 8/X with iTunes, all the data in the iTunes backup will be restored to the new iPhone no matter whether you want to restore all of them. And if you have already used your new iPhone, and store some data on it, all of them and other existing data and settings will be erased. If you just want to transfer part of data from old iPhone to new iPhone or keep all existing data and settings intact, you can follow next method.
