How to Transfer Data from Old iPhone 4/4S/5/5s/5c to New iPhone 7/8/X

Every time Apple has launched its latest iPhone product, tons of fans went crazy and upgraded their iPhone. While they do this, a very tricky issue appears: what should they do about the data in their old iPhone? Nobody wants to just throw all the photos, contacts, text messages, songs away with the old iPhone, right? That's why the first thing you need to do when getting a new iPhone is transferring all the contents from old iPhone to new iPhone.

Transfer Data from Old iPhone to New iPhone

As we all know, to support your transferring, Apple offers two official methods. You can restore all your iOS files on your new iPhone with iTunes backup, or sync old iPhone data with iCloud backup. But to be honest, both of them are clumsy and don't work as well as we'd expect.

If you have used iTunes before, you would know that iTunes could backup and restore all data on your new iPhone, but you can't decide what not to transfer. This may also cause a situation that the data on your new iPhone is wiped somehow. Things could also go wrong with iCloud. Because iCloud transferring relies so much on the Internet, it could take an astonish long time, especially when you have a weak Wi-Fi or a large backup. Besides, not all files can be transferred to new iPhone through iCloud as well iTunes, for example, your music.
