If you don’t do it, all your important data exiting on your previous device will be gone forever.
A few years back, it was quite problematic to transfer data between two iPhones; the data transfer process also caused data loss. Thankfully, these issues have been fixed by the recent iOS upgrades and the entire data transfer procedure is very hassle-free. Further, there is no loss of your contacts, settings, messages, photos, apps, etc when you transfer them to your new iPhone.
So without wasting any time, let’s take a look at the three ways that make it possible to transfer data between the two Apple Smartphones.
