Today we will give you an overview of the steps to a seamless iPhone trade-in. You will back up your data, transfer your data to your new iPhone, and prepare your current iPhone to send in. Let’s start by backing up your data with iCloud!
- Open Settings, tap your name,
- Choose iCloud and tap iCloud Backup,
- then tap Back Up Now.
While you are backing up, turn on and activate your new iPhone.
