Best Way to Transfer Data From Your Old iPhone to a New iPhone 13 – MacRumors
If you’ve got a new iPhone 13 to replace your current iPhone, there are a few ways you can migrate your data across to the new device. You can restore your apps, data, and settings from your most recent iCloud backup, restore from a backup on your computer, or you can use device-to-device migration to transfer your data directly from your previous iPhone to your new one. There are currently known issues with restoring your data from a backup, so this article focuses on how to perform a wireless device-to-device migration.
Without doubt, device-to-device migration will be the most convenient option for most owners of a new iPhone 13. It transfers over information like photos, app data, login credentials, device preferences and settings, and more. As with an iCloud backup, apps themselves are downloaded directly from the App Store rather than from your existing iPhone. It may take a little longer than restoring from a backup, but the time saved from not having to log into all your apps again makes it worth the wait, which is why this process trumps the other transfer methods.
The following steps outline the Quick Start process that you can use to perform a wireless device-to-device migration. As always when transferring data between devices, make sure you have made a backup of your current iPhone, just in case anything untoward happens during the migration process.
It’s also worth noting that if your current iPhone has an eSim plan, you’ll be asked to “Transfer Cellular Plan” while setting up your iPhone 13: You can either select the numbers you want to transfer or opt to Decide Later to complete the plan transfer after you’ve set up your iPhone.
The amount of time that it takes to transfer data from one iPhone to another will vary based on what’s on the existing iPhone, but Apple provides a data transfer estimate on the main data transfer screen.
If the wireless network you’re relying on is too slow, you can perform the data migration using a wired connection, but for that you’ll need a Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adaptor and a Lightning to USB Cable. Connect the Camera Adaptor into your current iPhone, then plug the Lightning to USB Cable into your iPhone 13 and the other end into the adaptor. You’ll then be able to follow the steps outlined above.
If you plan to sell or trade in your old iPhone to get a bit of extra cash, make sure to adequately erase everything on it to get it ready for its next owner.
