Starting with iOS 12.4, you can forget all that iCloud nonsense and use the simple new transfer tool that moves your data directly from one iPhone to another. Keep in mind that using an iCloud backup to restore your phone is faster, but if you refuse to pay for storage or your phone hasn't been backed up recently, this is the easiest way to get your new iPhone set up.

What you need

You'll need two iPhones -- your old one and the new one you're setting up -- both running iOS 12.4, and access to a Wi-Fi network.

Go to Settings > General > Software Update to make sure you're running the latest version of iOS 12. If your new iPhone isn't running iOS 12.4 yet, go through the setup process on the phone, but don't select the option to restore from any backup source. Instead, select "Don't transfer apps & data" and skip through the rest of the setup steps. Once you get to the home screen, update it to iOS 12.4 and then factory reset it. I know, it's a hassle, but doing so will ensure you can transfer all of your data from your old iPhone.

iPhone 11 Pro/Pro Max, iPhone 11, iPhone XR, and iPhone 8: Everything you need to know about Apple’s 2019 lineup

iPhone 11 Pro/Pro Max, iPhone 11, iPhone XR, and iPhone 8: Everything you need to know about Apple’s 2019 lineup Apple just unveiled the three iPhone 11 phones we were all expecting, including the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max. The iPhone 11 is the cheaper new iPhone you can buy right now, and it’s even cheaper than we thought — the 64GB version will retail for $699, $50 less than the original iPhone XR price last year. The Pro models, start at $999 or $1,099, depending on size, matching Apple’s pricing structure introduced last year. But

The iPhone 11 takes almost everything that makes the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max special and squeezes it down into a package that’s less It’s probably not worth buying if you have an iPhone XR or XS, but for everyone else, it’s the easiest way to get a taste of modern flagship iPhone

If the iPhone 11 is your first iPhone without the Home button, you’ll need to spend some time getting used to the new gestures. But they’re quite easy to pick up and in no time If you’re using an iPhone with iOS 12.4 and higher, you can use the new direct transfer method for setting up your iPhone .

What's transferred

By the time you've eventually finished setting up your new phone (step-by-step instructions below), it will essentially be a direct copy of your current phone. Apps will be in the same place on your home screens, settings will be the same, email accounts... everything.

Using the new transfer feature

With your old and new iPhones powered on, unlocked and next to each other, your old phone should display a prompt asking if you want to set up a new phone. Tap Continue and then point the old iPhone's camera at your new phone's screen.

Follow the prompts on your new phone, completing tasks like entering a passcode, setting up Face ID and agreeing to Apple's terms and conditions. Eventually, you'll end up on a screen asking if you want to transfer data directly from one phone to the other, or if you want to restore from iCloud.

While the iPhone 11 Pro is the most impressive technically, with a new triple camera system catching up to the competition, it is the iPhone 11 , the cheapest of the Costing from £729, the iPhone 11 has a 6.1in LCD screen, two cameras on the back but the same processor and storage sizes as the more

Select Transfer from iPhone and follow the prompts, after which your iPhones will take care of the rest. Make sure you leave the two phones near each other, otherwise the transfer can slow down or stall.

It will take some time for the transfer to complete, depending on the speed of your Wi-Fi network and the amount of data you're transferring. Naturally, 2,000 photos will take longer to transfer than 500. If you have a lot of apps and photos, be prepared to be patient -- it's going to take a while. It took me about 25 minutes to transfer all of my data, which is exactly what the amount of time the tool estimated it would take.

The default method is to use a wireless connection for the transfer. Alternatively, if you have a Lightning-to-USB 3 camera adapter and a spare Lightning USB cable, a wired transfer is possible and should be faster. But it's not worth going out and buying the adapter just to save yourself a few minutes.

After the transfer is complete, your new phone will reboot and your apps will finish downloading. All of your photos, emails, contacts, appointments, and messages will be there.

After you've set up your new phone, take a few minutes to get familiar with iOS 13, its hidden features, and even the new iPhone 11 camera features.
