I have a new iPhone 5 coming on Friday and want to transfer all my info that is on my current iPhone 4 to the new phone. I know how to backup my current iPhone but want to know how to get that backup onto my new iPhone.



iPhone 4, iOS 5.1.1

    For me, the easiest thing to do is you would just have to plug your phone up to your computer.  Go into iTunes and it will guide you through the steps.  It will give you the option to set up as new or from back up.  You want to choose "from backup".  That will load everything from your last back up.


    It is a very simple process.


    Hope this helps.

    If you have been backing up to the cloud, when you get your new phone, the phone will walk you through setting up the new phone from your iCloud backup.  It will be simple.  If you have not been backing up to the cloud, you would do as iPhoNettie suggested and set it up via iTunes on your computer.
