After getting a new iPhone, one of the most important points is transferring everything from your old phone. There is a special feature that Apple has to offer to ease this process. The feature is called Apple’s quick start. It was introduced back in iOS 11, and if you haven’t updated your phone in a long time, you may not find this feature. However, it is a hassle-free way to transfer all your data from your old phone to a new one.
Though there are other methods to do this work, such as backing up your iPhone data from iCloud, Quick start is the easiest way. If you are willing to use Quickstart for the first time, you may need some guidance, and this article will help you with this as here we will discuss how to set up iPhone 13 using Quick Start.
Before you start: Back up your old iPhone
It is always important that you backup your old iPhone before starting the process of setting up a new iPhone. Besides giving you a fresh backup, it will keep your data safe if anything goes wrong.
You can backup your data using iCloud, Mac or PC. Backing up in iCloud is probably the easiest option as it can only be done by using the settings app on your phone. With a Mac, you just need to plug in your iPhone to a port on Mac and backup using Finder.
How to set up iPhone 13 using Quick Start
After you finish backing up, you are ready to go. For setting up your new iPhone, hold your new iPhone 13 and old iPhone close to each other. Make sure your old iPhone is running on iOS 11 or any later version. Start your iPhone and swipe up from the hello screen for starting the process. Follow the steps mentioned below to set up iPhone 13 using quick start:
First, select your language.
Then, select your country
You will now be able to see the Quick Start option. Bring your old and new iPhone 13 device close, and you’re set to go. If any problem occurs, you can tap the Set Up Manually option at the bottom of the screen.
It is advisable to plug both the iPhones into the power source during this entire process. Make sure to do it if you have a lot of data to transfer as this is a quite power-draining process, and you’ll never want to run out of power in the mid-way.
You will now see an option to enter the passcode of your old iPhone onto your new iPhone 13. Tap on continue.
You’ll get a message on the screen asking you to agree to Apple’s terms and conditions. Agree with that.
The Quick Start will alert you to what it’s bringing over and give you an estimated time for finishing this procedure.
You’re all set.
If you’re running the iOS 15 beta on your older iPhone, then there are a few steps that you will have to follow. You either download the beta onto your new device or tap the box that exits the beta program. If you don’t do this, your transfer will be paused when the iPhone starts downloading the latest beta version and restarting.
The entire process of setting up your iPhone 13 using a quick start is a child’s play if done carefully. Make sure to follow every step carefully and not to skip any step in a hurry. The process can take a few minutes. You should have patience while doing this.
