    So before you could just plug your iPhone into iTunes and transfer, is that still the same with the new iTunes or am I going to have to restore a different way?

    I’ve always used iCloud backup to restore. I think it’s just personal preference because either one will work. I always print out the instructions so that I don’t forget to do anything important when I get a new phone

    iTunes and iCloud backups are the best method from my experince with myself and customers.

    your carrier should have an app that you can transfer content also. For example, we have AT&T mobile transfer to transfer that moves over pictures , contacts and videos over. Either of the transfer methods from Apple moves over more content than the carrier apps though

    Backup your old phone on iTunes with an encrypted backup. Then restore that backup on your new device. All the apps will download on their own.

    Most of your logins and passwords are transferred so you don’t have to re-authenticate.

    I’m going to start fresh instead of restore since it’s a phone with different iOS than other iPhones . Don’t want any hiccups later. It’s sure gonna be a pain downloading all the apps again.
