How To Transfer Data From iPhone To iPhone – 4 Methods
No matter what model iPhone you have, the most important thing on it is arguably the data. Granted, specific data vary in importance from person to person. Some value their notes, others their pictures or videos, and for some, it’s their contacts. No matter what it is, it’s important to be able to take your data with you to a new iPhone.
Sometimes, you aren’t even switching phones but simply want to transfer some data from your iPhone to a new device, such as an iPad, but don’t want to log in with the same Apple ID. Luckily, there are multiple ways to transfer data from iPhone to iPhone without needing to use your Apple ID and iCloud backup.

It’s important to note that in some cases, data is backed up on iCloud to free up storage space on your phone. In these cases, you’ll need to log into your Apple account through the data management software so that you can transfer the data on your iPhone as well as your iCloud backup.
However, as mentioned before, the methods I’ll outline in this article won’t use an iCloud backup. In case you want something from iCloud storage, you can log in with your Apple ID on the software and transfer the data. This means you won’t have to log in with your iCloud Apple ID on the new device, but will still be able to transfer your data to it.
