Buying A New iPhone – The Best & Quickest Way To Back Up & Restore

Looking to buy the new iPhone 6s or 6s plus this friday and want to transfer your data from your old iPhone to your new iPhone in the quickest way , while retaining all your data and settings, well do an encrypted backup on iTunes.

This will ensure that your passwords , apps and all your data are copied over.

Just plug your old iPhone into your computer and put put a tick in ” encrypted backup ” , enter a password ( make sure you remember it ) and let it back your iPhone up.

When it has finished get your new iPhone , plug it in and iTunes will ask you the usual questions for a new phone but one will be :

Do you want to restore from a backup ?

Yes you do and just restore from your last encrypted backup ( it will ask you for the password ) and your new iPhone will be loaded with all your data and apps including your passwords from your old iPhone guarding your sensitive information.

Just a reminder that I will be at the Telstra Store Mt Barker this friday the 25th between 8.30 – 5.30
