Do a iTunes back up, that will back all your info up so when you get your new iPhone all you will have to do is restore your new phone.

You can also perform an iCloud backup and then restore that backup to your new device when it arrives. You can also 'sync' your data via iTunes. If you have photos, videos, music and important files on the device, be smart and offload them onto a computer or a cloud service like Dropbox or an external drive via your computer to be on the safe side.
