  1. Dude you didn’t show after the phone opens up. We wanna know if the Apps and files are transferred to the new phone or not. Only the data is not enough

  2. Yeah I KNOW FOR A FACT that when I took my iPhone 6S in to an Apple store to trade-in for my current iPhone XR this was the EXACT PROCESS that took place when I migrated my data from my old iPhone. Not sure why you are emphasizing this like it's new. Or more importantly like that feature is somehow attributed to Apple's latest software update to IOS, 12.4. BOTH DEVICES during the aforementioned data migration were on 12.3 which days later would be, my XR that is, then updated to 12.3.1 and as of yesterday 12.4 on my XR. This trade-in took place almost 4 months ago. So unless this video was made many months ago and you simply forgot to upload it I'm not sure what this upload was about lol

  3. Just got a new iPhone XR today, updated my old iPhone 6 to 12.4 for this update since my itunes wasn't letting me backup, and i don't even get the "transfer from iPhone" option, it simple asks me if I want to use iTunes, iCloud, or set up as a new phone. I'm so confused!

  4. 3:42 Make sure you go into your new phone and make sure everything transferred correctly. Like check photos messages contacts apps and then erase.

  5. Hey i just got a new iphone Xs today! But my phone has all data but only a couple 100 photos saved through my icloud, how will i get my older photos of icloud??

  6. I already did the cloud transfer like a few weeks back but it didn’t fully cause I don’t use cloud often. Can I reset my new phone and then transfer still from old phone to new

  7. I’d used this feature when I bought the iPhone X and transfer all my data from iPhone 8… not sure why you said this is a new feature ….

  8. Will the iPhone transfer be faster than using iCloud transfer? 📱📲 Thanks for the video, man.🤙🏼

  9. it creates its own wifi adhoc network. doesnot need to be on a fast wifi connection as it uses a local connection anyway. thats why it says to keep both phones nearby. using the home wifi network will be painfully slow. also u can see that the wifi connection icon in the status bar of both iphones disappear once the transfer process has begun…..

  10. So this is just like restoring from an iTunes backup? Do you stay logged into apps just like an encrypted iTunes backup?

  11. Great video buddy … will the data from my old iPhone be completed removed or erased if I transfer it to my new phone ? Please respond

  12. I hate transferring with iCloud as I have a load of data on my devices and I have to hit permission boxes all over again.

  13. iDeviceHelp is the best when it comes to iPhone tutorials, I also have a channel called “jaydennnly” which is my name that also shows iPhone tutorials check it out and I will always follow back
