  1. How to back up your older iPhone

As mentioned above, there are two different ways to back up your data. We will cover both ways on how you create a backup of your older iPhone.

iCloud serves as an ideal method to back up your iPhone as it offers efficient backup. However, the process could take a while if you have a larger device.

  • Backup to iTunes

iTunes is a perfect way to back up your old iPhone cause it is fast. Here is how you do it

Step one: First and foremost, you need to open iTunes and connect your old iPhone to your computer
