The new iPhone X is about to be released, and it is one of the most anticipated releases in the tech world this year. With the iPhone X, we see a lot of new and innovative features such as facial recognition and a whole surface screen, but we have also seen the removal of the iconic home button. One of the things that a lot of users are going to be wondering when the iPhone X is released is how to restore new iPhone X from backup so that they can transfer their data from their old iPhone straight over to their new iPhone X. We will be focussing on some of the different methods that you can use to transfer your data to your new iPhone, so let’s get right into it.
Using iTunes to Restore New iPhone X from Backup
Before we go ahead and show you how to restore new iPhone X from backup using iMyFone D-Port Pro, we’re going to cover the basics and show you how to do so with iTunes. This isn’t the ideal method to use, but if you can only gain access to iTunes, it will get the job done, and it’s better than nothing.
Step #1 – Start by downloading iTunes on your computer, installing it, and connecting your old iPhone using the appropriate USB cable.
Step #2 – Once iTunes has loaded, allow a moment for your device to be detected and once it has been detected by iTunes, click on the device icon at the top of the program.
Step #3 – From the left menu, click on “Summary” followed by “Back Up Now”.
Step #4 – iTunes will now take a backup of all of your iPhone’s data. Once the backup has been taken, you can disconnect your old iPhone.
With this first section, you have discovered how to take a backup of your device using iTunes. However, to restore this backup onto your new iPhone X, follow the steps below.
Step #5 – Connect your new iPhone X to the computer with a lightning cable and allow a few moments for iTunes to detect this connection.
Step #6 – Once your iPhone has been detected, click on the device icon at the top followed by the “Summary” tab on the left panel.
Step #7 – From the menu that is shown, click on “Restore Backup”.
Step #8 – A window will now appear which gives you the chance to select a backup that you want to be restored. Select the most recent backup that you have taken and click on “Restore”.
Step #9 – iTunes will now restore the backup, and after a few minutes, you will find all of your iOS data transferred over to your new iPhone X.
Even though this method will get the job done, it still isn’t ideal, and we highly recommend that you use iMyFone D-Port Pro instead. Not only is it the best program to use to restore new iPhone X from backup but it is equipped with a lot of other useful features too.
