In this manual, I described the easiest and best way to transfer all data from the old iPhone to the new? Step by step.
So, you bought a new iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max or iPhone XR, and now you need to transfer all your data from the old iPhone to the new iPhone. No matter how you decide to transfer data, using the automatic setup of iOS 12, iCloud or iTunes, before you start, you need to backup your old iPhone.
