Transfer data from old iPhone to new iPhone 13

There are many of us who are already iPhone users but looking at the amazing features that the new iPhone 13 offers, want to switch to the new one.

Well, if you don’t know how to migrate all your data from the old iPhone to the new iPhonewithout losing any of it, then read on to know about two of the easiest and reliable ways to do that.

Method 1. Transfer data using ‘Apple Quick Start’

Quick Start is a feature offered by Apple in iOS devices that allows you to transfer data from one iPhone or iPad to another. It allows you to set up your new iPhone just the way your previous one was through device-to-device migration.

Before starting the Quick Start process, make sure both iPhones are fully charged as it can take some time to transfer your data from one phone to another.

Also, Bluetooth should be turned on on both devices for the process to work. Once you ensure both these things, you can take the following steps to proceed with the transfer:

  1. Place your new iPhone near the currently used iPhone and the Set Up New iPhone screen will appear on your current iPhone asking you to use your Apple ID to set up your new phone. Proceed by tapping Continue.
  2. 2.1.1-apple-quick-start
  3. An animation will appear on your new phone. Now hold your current iPhone over the new iPhone and bring the animation in the center of your screen for the camera to detect it.
  4. You’ll be asked to enter the passcode of your current device and other particulars if you want to activate the Face or Touch ID.
  5. You’ll be asked to enter your Apple ID and Password.
  6. You can opt for transferring data from one device to another or restoring the data from your iCloud backup.
  7. In the proceeding steps you can sync and set up apps like Apple Pay, Siri, or your Apple Watch data.
Method 2. Transfer data using AnyTrans

Transferring data from one iPhone to another through Apple Quick Start is useful, but it does lack in some ways. For instance, you cannot transfer selective data to the new iPhone using this method.

Also, in order for Apple Quick Start to work, your new iPhone should be erased clean meaning that you cannot add data to the existing data in your iPhone.

To cope with that and much more, you can use AnyTrans to transfer data from an existing iPhone to the new iPhone 13 (or any other iPhone). With AnyTransfer you can transfer all data or only selected categories of data to your new phone.

Moreover, you don’t need to erase data on the new iPhone or reset it to transfer data on it from another iPhone. Plus, you can merge content like WhatsApp chats from the same person and if there’s any duplicating content, you can simply skip it.

So, if you want to transfer data from an existing iPhone to the new iPhone, take the following simple steps:

  1. Download AnyTrans on your Windows or Mac computer and launch the app.
  2. You will see several options on the side panel. Among these options, click on the Phone Switcher.
  3. On the Phone Switcher screen, you’ll see the Apps to iPhone option. Here, click on the Transfer Now button.
