How do I transfer data and switch to a new iPhone device?

Got a new iPhone you want to use with Q Link Wireless? No worries—you can easily transfer your data to a new iPhone from your old device.

Before you begin the device transfer, make sure you do the following:

  1. Charge both new and current devices.
  2. Unlock the old device with your passcode.
  3. Sign in to your iCloud account on your old device.
  4. Make sure you have a strong Wi-Fi connection.

You need to back up the data on your old phone to iCloud before you switch to your new iPhone. Most iCloud accounts automatically back up your data, which means transferring your data to your new iPhone can be easily done during its initial setup.

How to back up your data with iCloud:

  1. Connect to a strong Wi-Fi network.
  2. Go to “Settings”, and tap on your Apple ID.
  3. Select “iCloud” from this menu.
  4. Tap “iCloud Backup”.
  5. Select “Back Up Now”. Make sure you are connected to Wi-Fi until the backup completes. On this page, you’ll see when your last backup was completed.

How to switch from an old iPhone device?

If you’re ready to transfer data to your new iPhone, you can use Quick Start on your device to easily make the switch. Just make sure your old device has iOS 11 or newer. Quick Start requires both devices to work, so don’t reset the data on your old iPhone until you’re ready for the transfer to your new device.

You can also switch the SIM Card to your new iPhone before transferring your data. 

Now, let’s transfer your data from your old iPhone using Quick Start:

  1. Turn on your new iPhone and select your language and country.
  2. The Quick Start guide will now appear on your new iPhone.
  3. Place your old iPhone close to your new device.
  4. Wait for an animation to show on your new iPhone. Once you see it, pick up your old iPhone, and line up the image in the circle to verify the transfer.
  5. Enter the passcode of your old iPhone into your new device. 
  6. Select “Continue” to start the data transfer.

Or, let’s transfer your data from your old iPhone using iCloud backup:

  1. Turn on your new iPhone and select your language and country.
  2. The Quick Start guide will now appear on your new iPhone.
  3. Select “Set Up Manually”.
  4. Connect your new iPhone to a Wi-Fi network.
  5. Follow the instructions until you get to the “Apps & Data” menu. Choose to “Restore from an iCloud backup”.
  6. Sign in to your Apple ID and choose your backup.
  7. Follow the prompts to complete the data transfer.
