Instructions for beginners

1. You bring the device to a professional, fast and operational inspection. In your presence, evaluate it, focusing on the following criteria: appearance, operation of the phone and the presence of a box with equipment.

Also, if you have a phone that is not in the best shape (visible visual or hardware damage), you can still make an exchange. If the device has problems with the screen or work at all, it is simply taken into account in the total cost. And if the gadget is not in working order, then it is possible to accept its spare parts for a certain price.

It is also a good idea to leave your old phone, as it can be a great backup or suitable for a quick upgrade for other family members.

If you have decided to turn to the Trade-In program, you need to make specific decisions about your old gadget.  

How to transfer your data from an old iPhone to a new one?

  1. Backup. To start, you need an old smartphone, to set up a new one. Back up your old iPhone ("Settings" - "iCloud"). Then click on "Back up now" and wait. Also, if you want to transfer all the data, you need to include all the toggles in the "Applications that use iCloud" menu.
  2. iCloud. You must select "Update from iCloud copy" instead of "Set up iPhone as new". Once you've entered your Apple ID, you'll begin the process of transferring apps, contacts, photos, and other information.
  3. iTunes. This method is considered the oldest and uncomfortable because errors may occur during its use. It is even possible to remain without data at all. However, this method can be used to transfer data from one phone to another if the backup capacity is 300 GB and you do not want to buy additional storage in iCloud.

The backup will be created on your computer, so make sure you have enough memory. Then connect your smartphone by clicking "Configure with iTunes". That is, the backup from the old iPhone will be moved immediately to the new one.

However, it is recommended to use direct data transfer, so it is a safer and more productive option. The fact is that a backup that was created earlier may not take into account the latest changes that were made to the old gadget. And at direct data transfer all information is transferred in an invariable kind. Also, this method does not limit the amount of information moved.

In order for your old iPhone to be ready for sharing or for sale, you need to delete all the extra information in it: "Settings" - "Basic" - "Reset" - "Delete content and settings".
