If you’re about to buy a new iPhone and have set up your old one, you’ll want to make sure that everything works properly when you get your new phone. Fortunately, there are some easy steps you can take to ensure this happens.
How to reactivate your iPhone.
To reactivate your iPhone, you can do so by going to Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings. Setting up your smart phone for the first time will require you to enter a passcode when prompted. If you don’t have passcode, then the first thing that happens is that your device will be backed up onto iCloud and deleted out of memory (and thus removed from anybody else’s hands).
In case this process doesn’t clear things up after using it once or twice on an old iPhone or iPad, try restarting them both again by turning off Wi-Fi; then turn it back on one at a time until they both come back online at exactly the same time again!
Activate your SIM card and connect to the internet.
You’re now ready to begin using your iPhone 14.
- Activate your SIM card and connect to the internet.
To activate your SIM card:
- Insert it into the phone’s SIM tray (the black area at the top of the phone). The power button should light up when you press down on it; if not, try again until it does so. When done correctly, all four LEDs on top of your device will light up green: one for Wi-Fi connectivity and three others for cellular data connections—the latter two are indicators that you have access to mobile data even when away from home or work locations where Wi-Fi is available.*
Set up Touch ID.
You can use Touch ID to unlock your phone, make purchases, and more.
- Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to access Control Center and tap on Touch ID.
- Tap on Set Up Touch ID if prompted; otherwise just leave it at On (swipe down from top) until you are prompted again later on in this article or another part of OS X El Capitan when setting up or using Apple Pay for the first time by going through steps 3–4 below:
Restore your iPhone from backup.
Before you restore your iPhone, make sure it’s not already restored and that you have the latest version of iTunes installed. If you don’t, go to the App Store on your computer and search for “iTunes.” This will install it automatically if it’s not already installed.
- To restore a backup from iCloud:
- In Settings > iCloud > Backup (or tap Control Center > Lock Status) > select “Restore from iCloud Backup” and then click Next. If prompted by Apple, enter in your passcode so that you can access this account later when restoring from backups made in other apps or services such as WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger.*
- Once done with entering in all necessary information once again, click Restore Now to begin restoring data from previous backups created within iMessage Chat functionality at any time since last connected using this method instead of having them stored only locally within storage space available here now through either option discussed above but only if there are no issues encountered during process completion!
Complete the onboarding process.
Once you’ve plugged in your iPhone, you’ll be prompted to complete the onboarding process. On this screen, you can:
- Sign into your iCloud account using a PIN or Touch ID (if available)
- Set up your Apple ID and security questions if they’re not already configured on the new device
Restore your iPhone from an iCloud backup.
If you’re using a new iPhone and want it to be exactly like the one you had before, restore your iPhone from an iCloud backup. You can also use iTunes to restore your device.
- To do this: Go to Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings. Then select Restore from iCloud Backup. Your phone will begin restoring immediately after it finishes downloading the data from iCloud (which could take several hours).
Setup your new iPhone 14 and restore it from iCloud
To setup your new iPhone 14, you’ll need to:
- Connect the device to your computer.
- Open iTunes on your computer and select “Connect” in the top left corner of iTunes’ main window.
- Once connected, click on “Backup” under Advanced in iTunes’ sidebar menu. You can also go directly to Backup section from Settings > General > iCloud settings page by tapping on it while browsing through other tabs like Music Library (Library) and Photos (Photos).
