How to Transfer Apps from Old iPhone to a New iPhone


Getting a new device can be overwhelming and exciting but not until you want to get back your cherished apps and data on these new devices.

Unlike Android devices where you can easily transfer data from one device to another, with iOS devices, most times people find it challenging in doing so.

In our previous articles, we’ve talked about how to How To Transfer Video From PC To IPhone Without Using Cable & ITunes and in this article, we are going to look at how to transfer apps from an old iPhone to a new one.

There are different ways of transferring apps from one iPhone device to another. You can transfer these apps using an iCloud service or third-party apps. In this article, we shall discuss the two methods.

How to Transfer Apps using an iCloud service

First, you must backup your old iPhone to iCloud. Once the backup of your old phone is completed, you can restore it during your new iPhone’s setup. To do that you:

1. Turn on your new iPhone and follow the setup instructions.

2. On the Apps & Data screen, tap “Restore from iCloud Backup.”

3. When your iPhone asks you to sign in to iCloud, use the same Apple ID that you used on your previous iPhone.

4. Tap “Next,” and choose the most recent backup to install.

After a few moments, your phone will be restored with all the apps from your previous iPhone.

If you’ve already set up your new iPhone without restoring your old apps, you can still restore the apps from a backup, but it will erase any apps and data you have since installed on the new phone.
