    Another idea, backup via iTunes, WITH encryption. Then restore that to the new phone. Everything should work then, including passwords

    I’ve continued with the setup of mine. A word of advice for anyone who hasn’t setup a new iPhone in a while... go through all of your apps in turn as soon as possible because many of them will require you to sign in again. Best do it in the comfort of your home rather than finding yourself out and about with no access to Dropbox or online banking (or similar app). It’s 3 years since I got a new phone and I’d forgotten what a pain this is with long since forgotten passwords and the like (I have most in 1Password or Safari keychain but not all it turns out)

    Wait, are some of you saying there is a new option to 'transfer' data & apps, to your new device?

    Wondering the same thing, unless they're talking about the AT&T transfer app?

    We have similar situations except the 8 replaced my 6s Plus & the X will replace my 7 Plus. No sim swapping needed for me this time around lol

    Here’s the link to what we’re talking about. It’s new for iOS 11.

    I'd like to see the gold in person. I usually hate gold phones (gold anything really), but in pics I've seen it looks really subdued. I might like it.

    Oh I get you now! Rounded. Not
    Like the 4 or 5. Like the 6 and 7.

    The phone set up consists of literally pointing your phone at a swirling pattern. That’s it. Everything transfers.

    The gold is the prettiest gold so far. It is very faint. Creamy. The sides are a touch darker. It’s literally between a cream, pink, and gold.

    I’m in love with it.

    I wanted to try it to see how it compared to Smart Switch on Samsung phones. I'll have to wait until I get my X to try it though. I don't have my 7 Plus anymore so I just set the 8 up as new.

    Oh I haven’t bought a Samsung since the big size of the 7 Edge. So this was totally new to me.

    I'm pretty sure they work the same way. It uses the NFC chip to connect the phones and does the transfer that way.

    I read that Apple's official cases do fit. I've seen some 7 cases in stores that have "8 compatible" stickers on them. Not sure if all 3rd party fit though.

    I just looked on Otterbox site and the cases are now listed as 8 Plus and 7 Plus, not separately. I'm not sure if they re-engineered them to fit both or
    if they just fit from the original 7 Plus. No harm in trying your 7 Plus on the 8 Plus though.
