Installing your iPhone in a perfect manner

  • Upgrading from old to New:In case you are upgrading just your iPhone version then first of all you need to back up your old iPhone by transferring all the apps data and setting to the new smart phone that you purchased. This back up can be easily made via iTunes or iCloud.
  • If you are New to iPhone:On the other hand, if this the first iPhone you have ever purchased then transferring data from Android can be easy if iPhone is activated and installed in a proper manner. This will reduce all your problems later on and then you can easily transfer the data from your previous android, blackberry to the new iPhone.
  • iPhone back up via iTunes:Before you choose iTunes for back up, make sure your iPhone has its latest version installed. Choose iTunes> Check for updates. For back up or update with iTunes, connect the old device with computer and synchronize it through USB.

    Synchronization can be done via iTunes> Select device> Sync button.

  • iPhone back up through iCloud:Back up is available on daily basis for smart phones having iOs7 or iOs 8 operating systems. The device will create an auto back up at least once in a day when it is connected to WiFi network provided that your device has the sufficient place for backup storage in your iCloud Account.

    Alternatively, manual back up is also possible via Settings> iCloud> Storage & Backup> Back up Now. It takes more time as compared to iTunes. So, kindly avoid this option if you need a quick back up.

  • New iPhone Set up:Switch on the new iPhone 6/6 plus with the oblong on/off button located at the top right of the device. Once it starts, go to “ Slide to set up” option and here you will be given enormous options like as Language and country, WiFi connection, Location services, iCloud Back up restore, restoring iTunes back up or Set up New iPhone. Select the last one” Set up a new iPhone”.
