New iPhone 8/iPhone x will be launched this September. Do you plan to switch from old iPhone to new iPhone? If yes, you must care about how to transfer old iPhone data like messages, photos, contacts, etc to your iPhone 8. If you ever backed up your old device to iTunes, it’s easy to restore iTunes backup to brand-new iPhone. In below, we will tell you two ways to make it.
Firstly, check whether you have usable iTunes backup that you made for your old iPhone or iPad. If you don’t have, install the latest iTunes on computer, run it and plug in your old device. Then, click your iPhone icon > Summary > Back Up Now. Wait until the whole process ends.
If you already use iPhone for some time but want to start over, you have to erase all content and settings on it. Head to Settings > General > Reset, and tap Erase All Content and Settings. Now, your iPhone is back to the status that you get it for the first time. Then, you can set it up again. When you come to App & Data page, choose “Restore from iTunes Backup” and follow the onscreen instructions to complete the whole process.
As we know, we can’t selectively choose what to restore from an iTunes backup. It’s disappointing that unwanted backup contents take up much iPhone storage. Luckily, iOS Data Recovery software easily saves you from this dilemma, which allows you to preview backup details and download partial contents to your new iPhone. In below, we show you how to use it.
Step 1. Download and install this tool on your Mac or PC.
Step 2. Open it, select “Recover from iTunes Backup” and click Next to scan your backup.
Step 3. Pick up a related backup and click right arrow to proceed.
Step 4. On the left panel, you can see several data types like messages, contacts, photos, etc. Click data type to see details, choose what you need, and click the bottom right corner to save them to iPhone or computer.
