how ya'll do it? you guys gonna carry everything over from your old phones? I want mine to be cleaner than it is right now. I always feel like after a while my phone feels cluttered af. so what's the best way of doing this? I've always had iPhones but for whatever reason I've never had to actually transfer all my info into the new phone. I'm not a tech guy so sorry if this sounds dumb af

Honestly now I always restore from a backup on my computer.  I’ve done “fresh starts” in the past when switching to a new iPhone, but I no longer have the patience to keep that up.  I don’t want to risk the chance of losing any of my content.

What (if anything) do you need to transfer to your new phone?
Same. Recently I deleted a bunch of old apps that I don't need anymore and I'm gonna backup tonight to get ready for tomorrow

Haven't backed up my 7 since December so I'm def gonna back it up on the computer

Then restore all my shit onto my X
But honestly if you want some less clutter, go through old convo threads, photos, videos, apps, notes, opened safari pages..... see if you still need those.

I'm going through photos and videos from a year ago to now and see I still want them. There's photos I saved a year ago but now I'm like "why did I keep this?"

You just have a new mindset on what to keep and what's important

My cousin only has convo threads of important people he texts. That's genius and so simple. I've been deleting old convo threads of people I never talk to.

Go through notes and delete what you don't need. Maybe combine some that are similar. Maybe you wrote down social media passwords in like 5 different notes. Combine them and lock them so others can't see.

Look through your apps and see what you can get rid of

There's really a lot you can do to tidy up your phone
