In this tutorial, we are going to show you how to migrate data from one iPhone to another. Specifically we will be migrating from an iPhone 6 to an iPhone 6s plus. Migrating your data is a lot like cloning the phone. You will backup your old phone and then restore the data to your new phone. All of the applications, settings, and even open web pages from the old phone will be transferred to the new phone.
In order to see the progress of your download simply click the download icon in the upper-right corner of the screen
This will show you how much is downloading and how long there is for it to continue. While you do have the option to pause the download, we do not recommend doing that, as it can create problems or cause you to receive iTunes errors.
Once you have completed the update process, you will see a message indicating that your phone is now up to date, at which point you can click the restore backup option as discussed at the end of the previous section.
Before proceeding, note that if you have Find My iPhone turned on, you may not be able to restore from backup. Likewise, if you have a fingerprint lock or a passcode lock on your new phone, you may also not be able to restore from backup. Therefore, it is important for you to disable or temporarily turn off these options while you update your new phone.
From here, you will be required to set up a six-character pin code
Note that the iPhone previously only required a four-character pin code. Now that security standards have been increased, a six character pin code is a requirement. If you do not like the security codes, you may later turn them off for your phone. Once your PIN codes have been set up, the phone will automatically take you to the next screen.
