it can be done at once by restoring a backup. Even if your device changes due to restoring the backup, you can take over your existing settings and apps, and leave your photos and other data intact.

Points to note when restoring a backup

Here are some critical notes about backups required before restoring an iPhone.

Limited data for backup

To restore data on a new iPhone, you need to make a backup first. The following data can be backed up.

  • iPhone data (phone book, email, etc.)
  • Talk history of SNS apps such as LINE
  • Data such as images/videos, music, documents
  • Information about installed apps, etc.

If you forget your Apple ID or passcode, you cannot restore it

The key to backup and restore is that you can’t restore if you forget your Apple ID or passcode.

When backing up, enter an Apple ID and set a passcode so that a third party does not decrypt the data. Don’t forget this Apple ID or passcode, as you will need it when you restore it.
