If you’re reading this, you’ve probably bought or are thinking of buying one of the newly launched iPhones. Whether you’re buying an iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, or an iPhone XR, you’ll need to know how to transfer contacts to new iPhone.
One of the biggest concerns that people have when buying a new iPhone is how to preserve all of their data. There are a number of different tools available to transfer to the new iPhone, however, most of them are complicated and require too much time and effort.
In this article, we’ll show you how to transfer to the new iPhone without losing any data at all. We’ll also show you how the same tool can be used as a complete contact manager to edit, delete, merge, and even export iPhone XS Contacts.
Part 1: Transfer to the New iPhone with 1-Click
When it comes to transferring data from one iPhone to another, people mostly think of the official iTunes and iCloud methods. Both of these methods work. However, they come with various issues:
- They are technical and time-consuming processes.
- You need access to the internet.
- You have to create a backup of your iPhone completely and then transfer that backup to the new iPhone. As such, you’ll get all the data in the new iPhone, but you won’t be able to select which files you want to transfer. It’s all or nothing.
The best way to remedy all of the aforementioned issues is to use dr.fone – Switch. This is a tool that’s been rolled out by Wondershare — one of the world’s leading technological enterprises. It allows you to transfer selective content to the new iPhone within a few minutes. It’s a simple consolidated 1-click process.
