Ok, now you have the brand new phone in your hands. We believe you had a different model earlier this year thus it is important to backup your old gadget. Don’t forget to do this because it is important to have an up-to-date copy of your previous smartphone. Use iTunes or iCloud [it truly doesn’t matter which program you prefer] and follow with the steps below:
Step 1. For example, you enjoy backing up iPhone 6s or other model via iTunes. Take the device and connect it to your PC or Mac.
Step 2. Open iTunes desktop program and let it recognize your iDevice.
Step 3. Press on the phone icon and look at the Backups menu. Learn how to transfer data from your iPhone.
Step 4. You need to click on This Computer so that your iPhone 6s backup copy is saved on your machine.
Step 5. It sounds nice to check the option Encrypt local backup to save your Activities on new iPhone 7 once you restore later on. Don’t forget your password and press on Back up now.
Step 6. Before you get to your new iPhone setup assistant let’s connect the iPhone 7 to your computer and ask iTunes to perform the procedure called ‘restore from backup’ that we have just created.
P.S. When you encrypt your backup keep in mind that all your progress will be deleted from the Apple Watch. However once being restored to this backup, your iPhone 7 will send this progress to your smartwatch once you launch Activity program. In other words, your personal data won’t be lost.
How to Set Up iPhone 7
Now let’s complete our setup and start using the new 2016 Apple smartphone model. Just as in previous years the company presented iPhone 7 in time for Christmas season so you might find this device under your Christmas tree this year, who knows.
Step 1. Once you have restored you might be asked to enter both iCloud passcode and your security password for users who prefer the 2-factor authentication or only one password if you don’t use this option. Remember that you also have to activate your phone number on iPhone 7 as well.
Step 2. Once you choose your settings for FaceTime and iMessage you should also complete the similar procedure for Apple Pay and Touch ID. It’s great if you come up with a good password for iPhone 7 unlock and use fingerprint feature to unlock the device through Settings – Passcode option.
Step 3. With Touch ID being turned on you can set up your Wallet to use Apple Pay feature. You’ll see the on-screen guide within this application how to add your credit card. Follow it and add the information required for payments. You’ll have to add your payment card on iPhone 7 even if you had already done so on iPhone 6s because this is the new device and thus the information disappears for security reasons [learn how to delete stuck iPhone 6 apps].
Step 4. Set up your Home Button touch feel as this option has become a part of your screen surrounded by the metal Touch ID ring. There are three click types you can select on iOS 10. You’ll always be able to change this feel in Settings – General – Home Button menu.
