    Hello,

    For my upcoming X I would like to do a spring cleaning, meaning I want a fresh start without restoring from my current iPhone.
    I do however want to keep all my pictures and videos taken.

    Is there any current way to backup and restore/transfer pictures & videos without being forced to transfer any other data and settings?

    If I would only backup the photos and then restore with my iCloud, would no other data/settings follow?

    You would enable iCloud Photo Library on your current device so it can start the process of backing up your entire library. When you get your new phone all you have to do is set it up out of the box and then enable iCloud Photo Library. No backing up of the device needed.
