How To Transfer Data From Old iPhone To iPhone 11
You can transfer data from your old iOS device to the new iPhone using iCloud backup, iTunes or Finder backup, or Quick Start. The first two methods will only work if you have done a backup data to iCloud, iTunes, or Finder before. If you still have your old iPhone, transferring directly using Quick Start is much more effective. You can either do it wirelessly or using a cable. This method requires iOS 12.4 or later. Updating your old iPhone to the latest version of iOS before starting the transfer data process would be a good idea.
