Getting a new iPad is always exciting, but what happens to your games and saves? Do you have to start all over again on a new device, or is there a way to transfer the saves from your iPhone to the iPad?
Lucky for you, there are a few things you can do to transfer the files you need and pick up the game where you left off. This article will tell you how to do that.
Method 1: Transfer Game Files Manually
You can use this method to transfer files between any and all iOS devices. The method requires you to transfer the files manually, but only after creating a backup just in case. We used a program called iExplorer that makes the entire thing more manageable. It works on all iOS devices, and its role is to pull data from one device onto another. Here is a step-by-step guide:
- Get the app you want to copy your progress to on the iPad.
- Download the iExplorer app onto the computer.
- Connect your iPhone to your computer.
- Start iExplorer and wait for it to recognize your device in the file browser.
- Click on the little arrow next to the name of your device.
- Click the arrow next to Apps.
- Find the app you want to transfer the data from and click on the arrow.
- When you get inside the app’s main folder, look for a folder called Documents. You will find all of your saved data, including game saves there. Copy the content to your desktop computer.
- Unplug your iPhone and plug the iPad in. Wait for iExplorer to recognize the iPad.
- Copy the “Documents” folder from your desktop to the desired app’s main folder on your iPad using the iExplorer.
Keep in mind that some apps use multiple save files, so you might have to transfer several files from one device to the other. Most of them, however, have only one file you need to copy and paste.
What If the Transfer Doesn’t Work?
In some rare cases, the transfer won’t work. That usually happens if the app installed on both devices isn’t updated to the same version. You need to make sure that both devices run the same version of the game or app to be able to transfer the save data.
Also, some apps don’t keep their save files in the “Documents” folder. If that’s the case, you should copy the entire “Library” folder from one device to another. That could result in lost high scores, but otherwise, the saves will be transferred. Your save files should be working fine.
Method 2: Transfer Game Data Using iCloud Services
Most of the content on your iPhone is backed up on iCloud. Game files are not included, but you can find other game data there. That leaves you with an option to transfer game data to your new device by backing up your old iPhone. Restore the new device with the same files, and your save files will appear. Here is how you can transfer game data files using the iCloud backup.
- Open “Settings” on your old device and tap “Apple ID banner.”
- Tap “iCloud” and select “iCloud backup.” Tap “Back up Now.”
- Now, that your iPhone is backed up, turn it off and remove the SIM card. Place the SIM card into your new device.
- Switch the new device on and follow the on-screen instructions until you see “App & Data.”
- Select the option “Restore from iCloud” and enter your Apple username and password. Tap “Next” and complete the process.
- Your game data is now transferred to your new device.
Method 3 – Transfer Game Data Using iTunes
iTunes also allows you to make backups of your iPhone, and that includes game data and saves too. You can create a backup of your phone on iTunes and restore the data on your iPad. Here is how you can do that:
- Launch iTunes from your PC and connect your iPhone.
- Tap the Menu bar and select the iPhone icon.
- Choose “Encrypt iPhone Backup” and enter the password. Tap “Back up Now.”
- When the backup process is activated, remove your SIM card and place it into the new device.
- Switch the iPad on and connect it to your PC. Set up the Wi-Fi connection and choose “Restore from iTunes.”
- Enter the password from step three and restore the data from the encrypted iPhone backup made earlier.
Continue Where You Left Off
As you can see, there are multiple ways to transfer game data, including save games, from your iPhone to your new iPad. Methods 2 and 3 don’t always work for all games, but they mostly get the job done. So, instead of playing your favorite games all over again, you can now continue where you left off.
A factory restore erases the information and settings on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod and installs the latest version of iOS, iPadOS, or iPod software.
Get your device ready
- Make sure that your Mac or PC is updated. If you’re using iTunes, make sure that you have the latest version.
- If you want to save the information on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod, make a backup.
- Go to Settings > [your name] > Find My, tap Find My iPhone, then turn it off. Learn what to do for an unresponsive device or one that won’t turn on. Get help if you forgot your passcode.
Restore your device to factory settings
- On a Mac with macOS Catalina or later, open the Finder. On a Mac with macOS Mojave or earlier, or on a PC, open iTunes. Find out which macOS your Mac is using.
- Connect your device to your computer.
- If a message asks for your device passcode or to Trust This Computer, follow the onscreen steps. Get help if you forgot your passcode.
- Select your device when it appears on your computer. Learn what to do if your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch is unresponsive or won’t turn on. Or get help if your device doesn’t appear on your computer.
- Click Restore [device]. If you’re signed into Find My, you need to sign out before you can click Restore.
- Click Restore again to confirm. Your computer erases your device and installs the latest iOS, iPadOS, or iPod software.
- After your device restores to factory settings, it restarts. Now you can set it up as new.
If you can’t access a computer
If you can’t access a computer and your device still works, you can erase and restore your device without a computer.

Did you just get a new iPhone or iPad you’re not restoring from a backup? Want a fresh start on your old device? After you set up your phone or tablet, it’s time to restore your favorite apps and games.
How to Find Previously Installed Apps
If you want a fresh start with your new iPhone or iPad, it’s best not to restore from a backup. A freshly reset iPhone or iPad is bug-free, crashes less often, and gives you better battery life.
Still, you want to access all your favorite apps. Sure, you can search and download each one, but there’s a better way to get a list of all your previously downloaded apps and games.
Open the App Store and go to the “Today” tab. Tap your profile icon in the top-right corner to see your account information.
From here, tap “Purchased.”
On the next screen, tap “My Purchases.”
Here, you see all the apps and games you’ve downloaded or purchased using your iCloud account. The list is sorted in reverse-chronological order, so the most recent downloads appear first.
At the top of the screen, tap “Not on this iPhone/iPad” to see a list of apps and games you haven’t downloaded yet.
Find the apps you want to restore, and then tap the download icon to start the installation process.
If you’ve built up a long list over the years, tap the “Search” box at the top to find a specific app in your purchase history.
How to Restore Apps From an iCloud Backup or Old Device
The only time you can restore apps from an iCloud Backup is when you’re setting up an iPhone or iPad. Starting with iOS 12.4 and onward, Apple changed this process. During the setup process, you see a screen called “Transfer Your Data.” From here, you can transfer apps and data wirelessly from your old iOS device or iCloud.
Tap “Transfer from iPhone/iPad” to transfer data wirelessly from an old device, or tap “Download from iCloud” to restore from an iCloud backup.
If your device is running iOS 12.3 or lower, you see the “Apps & Data” screen during the setup process. Here, you tap “Restore from iCloud Backup” and sign in with your iCloud account.
Tap “Choose Backup,” and then select from your list of available iCloud backups. Next, you just wait until your iCloud backup is restored. All of your apps will download from the App Store automatically, and the backup will restore all of your app and game data. You won’t need to log in or set up your apps and games again.
How to Restore Apps From an iTunes Backup
If you’re on the 5 GB free iCloud tier, iTunes is a better way to make a full iPhone or iPad backup. Plus, if you choose the Encrypted Backup option, you can backup personal data, like Face ID, HomeKit data, and Health app data, as well. This way, when you restore your iPhone or iPad, all your apps and games, app data, iCloud data, and personal information are available in the same state they were in at the last backup.
Before you can restore the data on your new device, you need to back up your old one. If you still have it around, open iTunes on your Mac or PC, and then connect your iOS device. Click the “Devices” button from the top toolbar to go to the device management screen. From here, find the “Backups” section and switch to “This Computer” for the mode of backup. Click “Back Up Now” to backup your old iOS device.
To restore a backup from iTunes, connect your new device to your computer. Select your device from the toolbar and click “Restore Backup.”
In the next popup, choose the backup you want from the list, type the password if it’s encrypted, and wait as your apps and games are restored to their previous states. When you see the “Hello” screen on your iPhone or iPad, you can use your device.
iCloud and iTunes backups are a package deal; they back up and restore every app and game on your device.
Use a Third-Party Backup and Restore App
In some cases, you might want more control over the backup process. For example, maybe you only want to back up and restore individual apps, games, or app data. In these situations, you can use a third-party iOS device management app, like iMazing.
Open the iMazing app, connect your iOS device, and click “Restore a Backup” to start the process.
The full version of iMazing costs $44.99, but it’s worth it if you don’t want to use iTunes to manage your iOS device.
You can remove apps you aren’t using and download them again later
What to Know
- Launch the App Store, tap your profile picture, and tap Purchased from the profile settings.
- Tap Not on This iPhone or Not on This iPad. These options narrow the apps down to those you no longer have installed on the device.
- Locate the app and tap the cloud button to restore it to the iPhone or iPad.
This article explains how to restore previously purchased apps and games to your iPhone or iPad.
How to Restore Previously Deleted Apps
These instructions apply to devices running iOS 5 and later.
First, launch the App Store. If you have a lot of apps downloaded to your iPad and don’t want to hunt for the App Store icon, you can use the Spotlight Search feature.
Tap your profile picture at the upper-right corner of the screen.
The profile button doesn’t show up on the search screen, so you may need to tap Today on the tab at the bottom for it to appear.
Tap Purchased from the profile settings.
If you have Family Sharing turned on, you may need to tap My Purchases from a second screen.
At the top of the purchased list, tap Not on This iPhone or Not on This iPad. These options narrow the apps down to those you no longer have installed on the device.
Scroll down the list until you locate the app and tap the cloud button to restore it to the iPad.
If you have an older device or haven’t upgraded to the latest version of the iOS operating system, you may get an alert that the app is incompatible with your device. You can download the last version of the app that supported your operating system or update iOS to the latest version before downloading.
You can also search for an app to reinstall in the App Store. Apps you’ve purchased will have the cloud button rather than having a price. You can even search for apps in Spotlight Search without opening the App Store.
Apple’s iOS and iPadOS come with several built-in apps, some of which you’ll never use. Here’s how to quickly give them the heave-ho (and restore them if you delete any by accident).
Your iPhone and iPad come with a large lineup of built-in apps, many of which you’ll probably never use and want to remove. While they take up very little storage and won’t earn you much extra space once removed, they can crowd your home screen. Deleting these apps frees up some real estate for other apps.
If you’re running iOS 12 or higher on an iPhone or iPadOS 13 or higher on an iPad, you can remove most of the built-in apps. Here’s how to remove (and restore) them.
Which Apps Can Be Deleted?
Apps you can jettison include:
Apps that you can’t kick out include the App Store, Camera, Clock, Find My, Messages, Phone, Photos, Safari, and Settings. You can only delete the Watch app if you unpair your Apple Watch.
Be aware that deleting these apps also removes your user data and any configuration files. However, any cloud-based content you created using the app will not be permanently deleted.
Removing some of these apps may affect the functionality of others. If you delete the Books, Maps, Music, or Podcasts apps, for example, you won’t be able to effectively use CarPlay. Deleting the Music app will affect playback of audio content in your library on some car stereos or stereo receivers. If you delete an app from your iPhone that also exists on your Apple Watch, the app is removed from both devices.
However, some features will still be available if you delete the associated app. For example, if you get rid of the Contacts app, contact information remains in the Phone app. If you delete the FaceTime app, you can still make and receive FaceTime calls via the Contacts and Phone apps.
Delete an App
With iOS/iPadOS 13 or higher, Apple offers a few ways for you to delete an app. You can long-press on the icon of the app you wish to remove, then select the Remove App command. Another option is to keep your finger on the icon until all the icons start jiggling and tap the minus button on the icon to delete the app.
You will then receive a prompt confirming that you want to delete the app. If you are running iOS 14 or higher, you are given two options: Delete App or Remove from Home Screen. Choose Delete App to remove the app from your phone completely.
However, if you choose to banish the app from the home screen, it will still be accessible in the App Library. If you merely need to declutter but don’t want to lose access to certain services, you should choose Remove from Home Screen. On iPad, deleting is the only available option.
If you ever want to access the app again, keep swiping to the left until you reach the App Library. If you know the category under which the app is organized, tap on it and then tap the app. Otherwise, browse for the app by name or search for it at the top of the App Library screen to access it.
If your app icons are jiggling and you want to stop them, tap the home button on your device. For devices without a home button, tap Done in the upper-right corner or swipe up from the bottom of the screen.
Redownload an App
Now let’s say you deleted a built-in app by mistake or suddenly have a use for something you previously jettisoned. Rest easy because reviving these apps is a simple process.
If you removed the app from the Home Screen but not from the App Library on an iPhone, return to the App Library and open the category for the app you wish to bring back to the Home Screen. Long-press on it and select the command Add to Home Screen. The app then jumps back to the first available spot on your Home Screen.
If you completely removed the app so it’s not in the App Library, open the App Store (which you can’t remove). Tap the search icon and type the name of the app you wish to restore. Select the name of the app from the search results and tap the cloud icon next to the app you want to bring back. The app will then download to your device. You can then open the app from the App Store or return to your home screen to see the app icon.

There can be a number of reasons why you may want to restore your iPhone or iPad from an iCloud backup. Maybe you bought a new iPhone and want to set it up using your old backup. Or, maybe you accidentally deleted some files that you can get back from an old backup. It could also be possible that your device is not functioning as normal and the only way to fix that is through restoring it.
In any case, your iCloud backup consists of everything that may be important like app data, device settings, app organization, iMessages, text messages, your purchase history from Apple services, and more. Here’s how to restore your iPhone or iPad from an iCloud backup in a few simple steps.
Learn how to restore your iPhone or iPad from an iCloud backup
- First, turn on your newly erased iPhone or iPad. You should see the “Hello” screen.
- Next, on a device without a home button: Swipe up from the home bar. On a device with a home button, simply press the button.
- Next, select a preferred language and your country/region.
- You will then need to select a Wi-Fi network and connect to it.

When too many downloaded apps begin to significantly slow down our iPhone, make it unstable and cause unexpected application crashes that previously never caused us problems, it may be time to reset our iPhone. Or it could happen (as it happened to me) that suddenly the screen goes black and you can’t see anything, while the iPhone is regularly turned on and reachable!
There’s a reset more “light” and a “heavier” one that returns the iPhone to factory settings. The “lightest” one we can try to do to unlock our iPhone and make it work as before is simply to press the Home button and the top button for a few seconds, as shown in fig. below:
Instead do the “Complete” reset of the iPhone it means returning it to its original condition, restoring the manufacturer’s options and deleting all software installed by us.
Without a proper app, this would mean losing all the data we entered, but if we use one apps on backup, will we be able to re-enter all our data, and what better service than iTunes, Apple’s sync service, will we ever be able to use? If you really don’t like iTunes, you can use software like iTransfer Platinum to create backups of your iphone and then restore all the data.
Let’s see how to reset iPhone via iTunes:
We connect our device to the PC, launch iTunes and select our device. At this point we can click on the button Restore iPhone.
Let’s not worry about the possible loss of the data entered: before proceeding with the actual restoration, iTunes will ask us if we want to back up our iPhone. Let’s click on the button Backup and our iPhone data will be transferred to our PC before resetting the iPhone. At this point, let’s click on the button Restore and follow the factory reset wizard of our mobile device.
NB: This type of reset however does not delete personal data permanently, in fact they could still be recovered using data recovery software such as dr.fone. If you want to erase all data permanently, read the last paragraph of this article.
Depending on the amount of data present in our mobile phone, the reset process could take a very long time, even an hour. Let’s not worry and let iTunes proceed with its work: we will be able to follow the progress from the virtual display of our device that iTunes displays.
At the end of the reset (or restore), we select our device again from the menu, select the backup of our data from the drop-down menu and select the option Restore from this backup.
In just a few minutes, all our data will be transferred back to the iPhone!
Reset iPhone before selling or giving it away:
Finally there is another type of reset (or formatting) which is the most effective one to DEFINITELY delete all the data on our iPhone making them unrecoverable even using data recovery software such as dr.fone.
If you need to resell or give your iPhone as a gift and you don’t want your personal data to be viewed, then you should make use of the SafeEraser program. A complete guide can be found on: How to reset iPhone.
Here’s how you can reset iPhone, iPad, iPod touch back to its factory settings without losing your apps or other precious content onboard. This is a constructive method of going back to factory defaults without worrying that you’ll lose anything.
There are times where you want to go back to factory settings on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Mainly because performance has become sluggish, or maybe you tinkered around with iOS’s settings beyond the point of repair. But the problem is, most users would want to go back to factory settings, but they don’t want to lose any of their installed apps or their content such as photos, videos, music etc. Sure, you can take a backup of everything using iCloud or iTunes, and restore things how they were using Apple’s desktop music management software. But in a lot of cases, that is just not possible for the user. This is where iOS’s ‘Reset All Settings’ option comes in to save the day, and we’ll show you how you can utilize it in a complete step-by-step guide.
1. First of all, launch the Settings app from your iPhone or iPad’s home screen.
2. Scroll down to ‘General’ and tap on it.
3. Now you’re going to scroll all the way down until you see the ‘Reset’ option. Tap on that as well.
4. You’re now facing a bunch of different options pertaining to reseting your iPhone or iPad to its default state. But over here, we’re only interested in ‘Reset All Settings.’ Hence, tap on it.
5. If you have a passcode in place, then iOS will ask you to enter it, so do so when you’re prompted for it. Now simply tap on ‘Reset All Settings’ written in red, and you’re good to go.
The process usually takes a few minutes depending on how much content you already have on your device. But once it’s complete and your iOS device has booted up, the settings will be back to their factory state, and all your precious content such as apps, photos, videos etc. will be right in place, completely untouched.
Like we mentioned above, this setting should be used only when you don’t want to lose anything on your device. If your device is in a state where things have really hit the fan and you have backed up everything already, then we recommend that you go for the ‘Erase All Content And Settings’ option, which will delete everything on your device, including your apps, photos and videos, bringing back the device as it was out of the box.

One of the major irritations with the way iOS works is the inability to backup your app data without the need to connect your device to iTunes. Going one step further, wouldn’t it be great if apps across multiple devices could stay in sync, using the magic of the cloud?
If you’re the jailbreaking type, then you’re in luck!
A new app going by the name if DataDepost (free in Cydia) does exactly what we’ve all bee crying out for.
Have a brilliant city saved in Sim City and want to continue it on your iPod touch? Using DataDeposit you can back up your game data to Dropbox and pull it onto your iPod touch. No fuss, no mess.
What DataDeposit does is scan your device for apps it can back up and then allows you to do just that. What you’re left with is a folder on your Dropbox account with subfolders for each app.
DataDeposit is just another app that makes jailbreaking a no-brained these days – at least until Apple pulls its finger out!
You will, of course, need to have a jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to install it. Follow our step by step guide posted here to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with Redsn0w on iOS 4.2.1 (or untethered with GreenPois0n RC5), or on iOS 4.3.1 with Redsn0w, PwnageTool 4.3 (untethered | tethered), or with Sn0wbreeze on Windows, or on iOS 4.3.2 with Redsn0w, PwnageTool 4.3 (tethered), or with Sn0wbreeze on Windows, or on iOS 4.3.3 using Redsn0w, PwnageTool, Sn0wbreeze on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch if you haven’t already.

One of your favorite apps was recently updated with all new features. Unfortunately, it no longer supports the iOS version running on your device. How would you re-install the older version of the app on your iPhone or iPad?
Unlike before, installing an older version of an iOS app is pretty simple. Albeit the process is slightly under the wraps. Hence, not too many folks would be aware of this important feature. Let me show you how it works!
UPDATE: The method is not working for now. We shall update the post as soon as we find the solution.
How to Re-install Older Version of iPhone or iPad Apps
Note: This simple trick will work with only those apps that were once compatible with the iOS version running on your device. For instance, Facebook had the support of iOS 7. Hence, you can download the app even if it doesn’t support that iOS version.
Step #1. Launch App Store on your iOS device.
Step #2. Now, search the app you wish to re-install.
Step #3. Once you have found the app, go ahead and install it as usual.
Step #4. Now, you will get a popup that would read something like, “Facebook requires iOS 8, or later You can still download the older version of the app.”
You need to tap on Download the prompt to confirm. Then, let the download process be completed. Once it’s done, launch the app, sign in to it and start using it just like before.
What if the new version of the app is compatible with your device but, you still want to use the older version?
- Open iTunes.
- Connect your iPhone and stop any syncing process that fires automatically
- Now, delete the buggy app from your iPhone
- In iTunes, click on the “Apps” link from the sidebar. This shows the apps that are available in the last backup. (or basically, all apps that you installed and synced)
- Find the app whose older version you want to install and drag-n-drop it on the iPhone section in the sidebar. (The device section)
- Now, all you do is simply Sync your iPhone with iTunes
What if I don’t have a backup?
You can ask any of your friends who *might* have a backup of the app in its older version. Obviously, you cannot sync your iPhone/iPad on their computer so you can simply copy the app. To do this (on your friend’s computer):
- Click on “Apps” section in iTunes
- Find the app and right-click → Show in Windows Explorer
- You’ll find the .ipa file. Copy this to your system
- Once done, you just have to drag-n-drop this .ipa file on your device in iTunes
So, that’s how you can continue to use any app even if its current version isn’t compatible with your device. As a user, I really appreciate this feature. What’s your take on it? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

Thanks to Microsoft, you can finally play Fortnite on iOS once again.
Nelson Aguilar is a freelance tech writer who really really really really loves the Lakers.
Fortnite is back on iOS, but it’s not through the App Store.
In 2020, Epic Games updated Fortnite to feature in-app payments that went directly to the video game developer, bypassing Apple’s strict rules on in-app payments and commissions. Apple didn’t take too kindly to this violation of its guidelines, and so it permanently banned the popular multiplayer shooting game from the App Store. And to this day, the game is still not available for download in that way and it could be years before it returns to the App Store , but there is another way to play Fortnite on your iPhone or iPad.
Earlier this month, Microsoft announced a partnership with Epic Games that would make Fortnite accessible to anyone with an Xbox Cloud Gaming account. Nvidia announced a similar partnership with Epic Games that also allows you to play Fortnite, via its GeForce Now streaming service . All long as you have access to a web browser — such as Safari or Chrome — you can once again play Fortnite on your iPhone or iPad.
Here’s what you need to know.
Fortnite is available to play on GeForce Now for iOS.
For Xbox Cloud Gaming, first create or sign in to your Microsoft account
If you already have a Microsoft account, you can skip ahead to the next section. If not, you need to create a Microsoft account first, which takes only a few minutes.
On your iPhone or iPad, in the web browser of your choice, go to the Microsoft sign-up website and create a new account using an email or a phone number. The process involves creating a password, adding your name and birthdate, verifying your email and solving a puzzle to prove that you’re not a bot.
Save your username and password to iCloud or keep your credentials elsewhere, because you’ll need them later to play Fortnite.
You can quickly create a Microsoft account.
Now, go to the Xbox Cloud Gaming website and add it to your home screen
In Safari, Chrome or other mobile web browser, go to the Xbox Cloud Gaming website and tap the green Play for Free button underneath the Fortnite logo. If you aren’t already signed in to your Microsoft account, do that now. An Xbox account is also required to play any games, so if you’re asked to create an Xbox account, do so.
Next, tap the green Get Ready to Play button — this will bring up a window at the bottom of the screen asking you to add Xbox Cloud Gaming to your home screen to launch the game from there. To do this, tap the share button in the navigation bar and then hit Add to Home Screen. You must add the website to your home button or else you won’t be able to play Fortnite.
Add the Xbox Cloud Gaming service to your home screen.
Finally, open the home screen app and play Fortnite
Once the Xbox Cloud Gaming website is on your home screen, hit Play for Free, sign in to your Microsoft account and then tap Play to begin playing Fortnite.
A loading screen from Xbox and then one from Fortnite will appear. Use the controls on the screen to link your Fortnite account or play as a guest (I ran into problems playing as a guest, so I would recommend linking your existing Fortnite account or creating one).
At the top left, you have a number of controls to mute your microphone, exit the game, configure your controls, view the Xbox menu and more. For the best experience, bring down the control center, make sure the portrait orientation lock button is off and flip your phone horizontally so that you can play full-screen.
As for gameplay, Fortnite obviously doesn’t run as smoothly as it does on your computer or gaming console, and the controls are a bit difficult to master, but at least this does offer you a way to play on the go — as long as you have a pretty decent internet connection.
This is what Fortnite via Xbox Cloud Gaming looks like on the iPad.
For Nvidia, how to play Fortnite with GeForce Now
As long as you’re a GeForce Now member, you can also play Fortnite on iOS thanks to Nvidia’s video game streaming service. However, unlike with Xbox Cloud Gaming, you’re limited to a single hour session at a time with the free GeForce Now membership. After an hour, the service will automatically close, and while you can start another hour session right after, constant interruptions are not ideal.
To play Fortnite, go to the GeForce Now website in your web browser, tap the share icon and hit Add to Home Screen to add the service to your home screen as an app. Next, launch the GeForce Now app you just created, agree to the terms and conditions and tap on Fortnite.
Before you can play the game, you must either log in to your existing account or create a new one. Choose the free membership option (you can also pay to avoid session interruptions), and enter your email, a password, a display name and your birthdate. Once your account is created, go back and hit Play to load up Fortnite.
Like with Xbox Cloud Gaming, you have a number of touch controls for playing the game, as well as to bring up a keyboard, mute your microphone, copy and paste and other actions. And as mentioned in the previous section, it’s best to play the game horizontally so that you have more screen real estate for it.

Do you have an app that you know would work so much better on the iPad than it does on the iPhone? Do you want to transfer that app but don’t know how? If the answer to both those questions is yes, you are in luck. This article will detail the different ways you can easily and reliably transfer apps from your iPhone to iPad. Most of the processes we are about to describe are very easy to accomplish as you shall see.
- Part 1. How to Transfer Apps from iPhone to iPad via iCloud
- Part 2. How to Transfer Apps from iPhone to iPad via iTunes
- Part 3. How to Transfer Apps from iPhone to iPad via App Store
Part 1. How to Transfer Apps from iPhone to iPad via iCloud
Transferring your Apps from your iPhone to your iPad using iCloud is very easy. Follow these very simple steps to copy apps from iPhone to iPad.
Step-By-Step Guide to Transfer Apps from iPhone to iPad
Step 1. Launch the Settings app on the iPhone screen and then select the “Store” option.
Step 2. Slide the “Apps” to ON in the “Automatic Downloads” section. That should do it. As long as both the iPhone and the iPad are signed in to the same iCloud account, you should see the iPhone apps work on the iPad soon enough.
Part 2: How to Transfer Apps from iPhone to iPad via iTunes
You can also decide to use iTunes to transfer your apps. The process is also quite easy. Ensure that you have the latest version of iTunes installed on your computer and then follow these very simple steps to transfer your apps.
Step-By-Step Guide to Transfer Apps from iPhone to iPad
Step 1. Connect the iPhone to your computer using USB cables and then launch iTunes if it is not automatically opened. Click “Store” and then select “Authorize computer”. Then, log in to your iTunes account and then click “Authorize”. Also It’s very important that the iTunes account is used on both devices.
Step 2. Now, right-click on the iPhone icon in the devices tab and select “Transfer Purchases” from the iPhone. This action will sync your apps to your computer. Wait for the synchronization process and then click the Eject button before disconnecting the iPhone from the USB cable.
Step 3. Now connect the iPad to your computer using the same USB Cable. Then right-click on the iPad icon in the devices section and select “Transfer purchases from iPad”. When the transfer is complete, click the iPad again in the devices section and then select the “apps” tab. Check the box “Sync Apps” and all the apps transferred from both the iPhone and the iPad will be synced to the iPad. Click “Sync” to send all the apps to the iPad.
Part 3: How to Transfer Apps from iPhone to iPad via App Store
Another easy way to transfer your purchased apps to your iPad without having to buy them again is by using the App store itself. Here’s how you can do this easily.
Step-By-Step Guide to Transfer Apps from iPhone to iPad
Step 1. On your iPad, launch the app store by tapping on the “App Store” icon from the Home screen.
Step 2. Now select the Purchased tab and then tap “Not on this iPad”.
Step 3. Tap the Cloud button to install the apps that are not already on the iPad. This will include all the apps that were purchased on the iPhone. You may be requested to enter your iTunes password when installing the apps. You can tap the iPhone tab to view the apps that are not designed for the iPad.
Like any computing device, iPhones and iPads occasionally have problems. Sometimes iOS crashes, and you need to reinstall it to ensure that you can go on using the device without losing any data. Sometimes you get a black screen, and can’t do anything with your device. Sometimes an iPhone or iPad gets into a loop, where it reboots over and over.
All of these are signs that the device’s software – the iOS operating system – needs to be reinstalled. You can do this with iTunes, but you will loose your device’s data. Unfortunately when a device is in such of state, you cannot back it up.
With iMazing, you can reinstall iOS on an iPhone or iPad that’s not working while trying to preserve its data.
Here’s how to reinstall iOS on your iPhone or iPad:
- Download and install iMazing. Launch the app, and connect your device to your Mac or PC.
- Wait for your device to appear in iMazing’s Reinstall iOS screen and click Reinstall iOS.
- If iMazing’s Reinstall iOS screen doesn’t appear, select your device in iMazing’s left sidebar and click iMazing’s Reinstall iOS feature.
- If Steps 2 and 3 don’t work, enter your device in DFU mode (Device Firmware Update mode), and use iMazing to reinstall iOS.
💡 Tip: iTunes might try to get back into the game during the update. If it does, just close it.
Before you begin
Download and install iMazing on your Mac or PC computer
1. Launch iMazing on your computer and connect your device.
Download and install iMazing. Launch the app, and connect your device to your Mac or PC.
2. Wait for your device to appear in iMazing’s “Reinstall iOS” screen.
After connecting your device, wait for your device to appear in iMazing’s Reinstall iOS screen and click “Reinstall iOS”.
💡 Important: Make sure you have a recent backup of your device made with iMazing, iTunes or iCloud before reinstalling iOS. If you don’t check the option “Erase device before installing”, iMazing will try to preserve your device’s data but there is no guarantee. To exit recovery mode, click the Exit Recovery Mode button. Then back up your device with iMazing.
3. If iMazing’s Reinstall iOS screen doesn’t appear.
Select your device in the sidebar, then click Reinstall iOS. It’s in the column to the left of the Device Details pane. You may need to scroll down in that column to see this function.
4. The three different device modes
When installing iOS on an iPhone or iPad, you will be in one of these modes:
Normal mode: This is the case when everything is working. You are reinstalling iOS because of a software glitch, but you can manage the device as usual. You may do this because of sync problems, or because certain apps quit unexpectedly, and still don’t work after you’ve reinstalled them. In this mode you can still back up your device so make sure to do a backup before reinstalling iOS.
Recovery mode: In this case, iOS is not ready for use on your device. You’ll see on the screen an iTunes icon and an image of a cable, prompting you to connect the device to a computer and install the software with iTunes. iMazing can work with the device when it’s in this mode, but it cannot back it up. If your iPhone or iPad is in recovery mode, use iMazing to try to exit recovery mode so you can make a backup. To exit recovery mode, click the Exit Recovery Mode button on iMazing’s Reinstall iOS screen. If you cannot exit recovery mode, try to reinstall iOS, iMazing should preserve its data but there is unfortunately no guarantees so it’s better to do it if you have a recent iMazing, iTunes or iCloud backup.
DFU mode: DFU, or Device Firmware Update mode, is your last hope if everything else has failed. To put your devie in DFU mode, have a look to this article:
How to put an iPhone or iPad into DFU mode
5. Choose an installation type.
iMazing offers two installation types: you can either download the latest version of iOS for your device from Apple’s servers, and install that on your iPhone or iPad, or you can install from an image file, or .ipsw file. This .ipsw file is one that you may have on your computer if you updated your device through iTunes, or if you tried to restore the device in that way.
5.1 Installing from Apple’s server
If you choose this option, iMazing will check with Apple’s servers and download the latest version of your device’s software automatically. Click Reinstall iOS to continue.
5.2 Installing from an image file
You should only choose to install an image file if you are sure you have the latest version’s file on your computer.
If you choose to install from an image file, iMazing displays a dialog asking you to find that file. You can download IPSW files from this website: IPSW.me. Make sure to select the right package for your device model, otherwise the installation will fail.
After you’ve selected the .ipsw file, click Select, then click Reinstall iOS to continue.
6. Installation progress
After you click Reinstall iOS, iMazing will use your selected method to install the software. If you’ve selected an .ipsw file, installation will take a few minutes. However, if you’ve selected to have iMazing download the software from Apple’s server, this may take some time, depending on your internet bandwidth. The iOS installation package’s size is between 2 and 3 GB, so if you have limited bandwidth, it may take a while for iMazing to download the software.
7. Finishing up
After the reinstallation has completed, iMazing displays a screen asking you to unlock your device. Enter the passcode for your iPhone or iPad. The final steps of the installation continue, and iMazing may also asks for you to Trust this Computer on Device. Tap Trust in the dialog that displays on your iOS device, so iMazing can continue working with it.
iMazing has now completed its installation.

Updated January 7, 2019
First, I’m glad you’re here. Welcome to Life In LoFi. Sadly, this article is no longer valid. Apple, in all its wisdom, changed how iOS apps are backed up and updated. They are no longer backed up on your computer and it’s impossible to download an older version of an app (or an app you purchased but is no longer available for download) from the App Store. Recent iTunes and iOS updates have removed all tools and hackzies listed here that enabled users to roll back to a previous version.
Unfortunately, there is now no way to reinstall older versions of apps to your iPhone or iPad. It sucks, and I’m feelin’ the pain right there with ya. — M
Four ways to downgrade to a previous version of an iPhone app
It doesn’t happen often, but there may be times when you really want to downgrade to the previous version of an iOS app or even older. For example, you just downloaded the latest update of your favorite app to your iPhone, but the new version crashes hard and often and the old version is no longer available in the App Store. Maybe it’s a really buggy version or maybe the new version doesn’t like your spiffy brand new iPhone.
Are you out of luck until the fix is released? Maybe not.
Here are four ways that you can try to downgrade back to a previous version of an app, including a very detailed way to access a back door to older apps in the App Store. These methods are not foolproof, but they’ll give you a chance at restoring a version of the app that will work on your device.
1. Use Time Machine or another backup to restore previous versions of an app
You are backing your computer up, right? If so, the easiest way to reinstall a previous version of an iOS app is to restore it from Time machine or other backup.
- In Time Machine for Mac OS, navigate back to the date of the last good version of the app you want to restore.
- In Time machine, navigate to [User] > Music > iTunes > Mobile Applications. Select and restore the app.
- Drag and drop the older version from your backup into your iTunes My Apps section. “Replace” to revert back to the older (working) version.
2. Restore the app on your iPhone using iTunes
This method works if you regularly back up your iPhone or iPad to your computer using iTunes, but it only works if you haven’t updated your iTunes copy of the app. If your iTunes library has also been updated, you’ll need to try another method or wait until the developer releases a fix.
- If you downloaded a broken app update to your iPhone, do not update apps in iTunes yet. You’ll be using the old copy of the app that’s still stored in your iTunes library.
- Delete the app on your iPhone by pressing the app’s icon for several seconds. The apps will start to jiggle and a small X will appear in the upper lefthand corner.
- Press the X of the app you want to delete.
- Press the home button after the app is gone from the screen to stop the jiggling and get out of delete mode.
- Then, connect your iPhone to your computer. Open iTunes and select your device. Do not sync at this time.
- Click the Applications tab. Select “Apps” in the iTunes sidebar.
- Find the app you want reinstall in iTunes’ Apps list. Select the option to “Install” and sync your device. The version you have backed up in iTunes will copy back to your iPhone. Hopefully, it’ll be the older version.
If an app is broken, it’s probably not a good idea to “Update All” on your computer or your iPhone until you know it’s been fixed. You can update all of your other apps one at a time.
WARNING: Many photo apps such as Camera+, VSCO, FiLMiC Pro, Pixelmator and others have lightboxes — their own private photo library that require you to then take additional steps to save images to your iPhone’s camera roll. These lightboxes contain images that are saved nowhere else on your iPhone or iPad — camera roll, photo library, PhotoStream… nowhere. Once these apps are deleted, the images contained in their lightboxes are deleted as well and cannot otherwise be easily restored.
Make sure to back up your important images often to your camera roll. While a lightbox workflow is convenient, storing photos on your iPhone’s camera roll is a safer place for them.
3. Look for the app in the Trash
If you have a Mac, just look in the Trash. iTunes throws all previous versions in there after it updates.
- Retrieve the app from trash.
- In iTunes, select the Apps button. Delete the new version from My Apps in iTunes.
- Drag & drop the previous version into your My Apps section of iTunes.
- Select the option to “Install” and sync your device and you’re golden.
Previous versions of iOS would also move old copies of updated apps to the trash when syncing. This no longer happens when updating apps on your iPhone in iOS 9. The newer versions on your device will now overwrite the older copy in your iTunes library. Previous versions of apps are still moved to the Trash when updating them in iTunes on your computer.
4. Use Charles or Fiddler apps to download older versions of iOS apps from the App Store.
If you really need to go back to a previous version of an app and the previous two methods didn’t work for you, there are a couple of third-party apps for Mac OS and Windows which will let you redownload any previous version of an iOS app.
You’ll first need to download, install and launch Charles proxy app for Mac OS or Fiddler for Windows.
Over on iDownloadBlog, Jeff Benjamin details the process of restoring old iOS apps on Mac OS and includes a video. Over on Medium, Kenny Yin does the same for Windows machines.
On either platform, the process is long and detailed. I haven’t tried this myself, but it looks pretty straightforward. Be sure to create a good backup of your iPhone or iPad before your start in case you have to restore your device if things go south. Also, see my warning above about lightboxes before you proceed.
Your mileage may vary for any or all of these methods. Understand before you attempt any of these that there is a chance that you will lose some data, especially if you are trying to downgrade an app that stores its data, photos, etc. only in its own exclusive directory on your device. We’re not responsible if that happens.
Good luck! Let us know how you did in the comments below.

You need to run the restoring an iPhone due to a problem or simply because you want to sell it? Here are the steps to take to reset and restore an iPhone.
Restoring an iPhone can bring several advantages to all users who experience problems with their device or for those who want to reset it to the conditions of factory, delete its content and transfer it or sell it to third parties. Let’s find out how to do this in order to achieve the desired result.
Before you begin: Turn off Find My (Find My iPhone)
First of all, before any kind of full restore, it is advisable to disable the “Find my iPhone“So as not to run into problems with deactivation after the reset and not to leave” trouble “to the subsequent owner of the smartphone. To disable this function you need to go to the system settings, under Apple ID> iCloud> Where is. > Find my iPhone. Once you have entered your Apple ID password and disabled the feature, you can proceed with the reset.
Direct restore from iPhone
Restoring via iPhone is the fastest and most intuitive and requires very few steps. First, go to the iOS settings> General> Transfer or initialize iPhone> Restore and then select the command “Initialize content and settings“. Once this is done we will have to enter the screen lock code and, if present, that of the restrictions of iOS and then just leave it to the iPhone which, once restarted, will be restored to factory conditions. In this way the device will be cleaned and restored, ready to be re-configured or sold.
Alternatively, it is possible to perform other types of recovery, less invasive and dedicated only to certain problems. Let’s find out which ones:
- Reset Settings: this function resets all smartphone settings and returns them to their initial values, without deleting any type of content. It is for those who want to re-set only the settings and configurations, perhaps because their needs have changed or because they have misconfigured some settings and cannot remember how to go back.
- Network Settings: This feature resets all network connections and is useful for those experiencing connection problems.
- Keyboard Dictionary: this setting resets the keyboard dictionary and restores it to default values, eliminating the changes and corrections made by the user on the various terms.
- Home Screen Layout: This feature resets the icons and layout of the home screen, to allow users to rearrange various apps.
- Location and Privacy: this function, on the other hand, resets the options relating to location and privacy settings.
Procedure via iTunes (or Finder for newer versions)
In this case, the procedure becomes more complex but also more complete and useful in cases where the problems on the smartphone are such as to prevent recovery from the device itself. Here we can choose whether to restore the device in a simple way, or in mode DFU (recovery) to perform the most complete of restores.
As Apple states, it may be necessary to use the recovery mode to restore iPhones in the following cases:
- iTunes does not recognize the device or indicates that it is in recovery mode.
- The screen remains frozen for several minutes on the Apple logo with no progress bar.
- The Connect to iTunes screen appears.
For this kind of restore you need to connect the iPhone to the computer, open iTunes and click on the item “Restore iPhone”. In case you want to intervene in DFU, you will need to put the iPhone in this mode with a combination of buttons well defined.
Here are the steps to take:
- On iPhone 8 and later: Press and quickly release the Volume Up key. Press and quickly release the Volume Down key. Then hold down the side button until you see the Connect to iTunes screen.
- On iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus: Press and hold the Side button and the Volume Down button at the same time. Keep holding them until you see the Connect to iTunes screen.
- On an iPhone 6s and earlier, iPad, or iPod touch: Press and hold the Home button and the top (or side) button at the same time. Keep holding them until you see the Connect to iTunes screen.
When the iPhone recovery starts, you will have to wait for the download of the latest version of iOS and the restart of the device. After that, the iPhone will be successfully restored.
Restore iPhone via iCloud
The last recovery mode is through iCloud and is dedicated to those who have lost their device or to those who have been a victim of theft of the device. If the iPhone is online via the iCloud.com website or the “Find My” app, you can send a reset command to reset it and not leave any personal data around the world. Just confirm this command, called “Initialize iPhone“Within the app or site. Once the operation is complete, the iPhone will be completely reset and restored to its factory state. In this case, however, the “Find my iPhone” function will remain active to allow a hypothetical recovery by the owner.
As Apple declares, in fact, when you remotely initialize a device, Activation Lock remains active to protect it. To reactivate the device, Apple ID and password are required.

While the iPhone and iPad usually suffer far fewer problems than traditional computers, sometimes the unexpected happens.
If your iPad is giving you serious problems, one way to get things back to normal is to perform a factory reset. This erases all the data and apps from your iPad and restores it to its original condition, as if it just arrived from the factory.
After resetting your iPad, you can restore all of your apps and data from a recent backup, or — if you suspect that something in the backup is what caused your iPad to have problems to begin with — reinstall all of the apps you want manually from the App Store and ignore your backups.
A word of caution: restoring your iPad is the “nuclear option” when it comes to troubleshooting your device. It’s time-consuming and whenever you erase a device, there’s always some risk, however small, that restoring from a backup will fail.
If possible, see if there’s a particular misbehaving app and uninstall it first. You might also try some of the troubleshooting tips found in our article, “Can iPads get viruses?”
But if you know that you want to backup and restore your iPad, here’s how to do it safely.

How to backup your iPad so you can restore it later
Before you reset your iPad, make sure you have a current backup of your data. To check that you have a backup or make one:
1. Open the Settings app.
2. Tap your Apple ID at the top of the left sidebar, and then tap “iCloud.”
3. See if “iCloud Backup” is turned on. If it isn’t, tap it to turn it on.

Battlegrounds Mobile India is finally available for Apple iOS devices like iPhone and iPad. This has happened after a long wait of one-and-a-half months. While the Indian avatar of the wildly popular banned PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG Mobile) game for Android devices was launched by Krafton last month, gamers with iPhones were left out of the action. Now that the game has finally been launched on iOS, here’s how gamers can get download BGMI onto their iPhone or iPad right away.
Last month, Krafton launched Battlegrounds Mobile India on Android on July 2, after a week of public beta testing. Meanwhile, gamers on iOS devices were waiting for the developer to release the popular PUBG Mobile successor until August 18. The game is now listed on the App Store and is available for download. If you are unable to see the game, it is likely that you are using an older device that is currently not supported and cannot be used to play the game, but in any case, gamers should wait for a while and try again later.

Luckily, iOS users will also be able to take advantage of Krafton’s freebies that it recently announced after the game notched up 50 million downloads on the Google Play Store. These include the Galaxy Messenger set and other cards that can be claimed from inside the game. If you want to download Battlegrounds Mobile India for your iOS device, here are the steps you need to follow.
Battlegrounds Mobile India iOS: How to download BGMI on your iPhone or iPad
Step 1) Open the App Store on your iPhone or iPad and search for Battlegrounds Mobile India. If you are unable to see the game listed in the results, try clicking this link from your phone’s browser.
Step 2) Tap the “Get” button on the app listing on the App Store, then wait for Apple to authenticate.
Step 3) You will need to double-tap your power button and then wait for Face ID (or Touch ID on an older iPhone or your iPad) to authenticate adding the app to your library. If you haven’t set up biometric authentication, you will need to enter your Apple ID and password.

Each new version of iOS and new release of Apple hardware can result in apps being left behind, and no longer working on recent devices. In particular, there are some common causes for this:
- App developers can withdraw apps from the App Store at any time
- 32-bit apps ran on most Apple devices up to iOS 11, but required a 64-bit version from iOS 12 onwards
- The iPhone 5C cannot run versions of iOS newer than 10.3.3, and some apps require a new version
- Users may switch from an iPhone to an iPad and vice versa
So what do you do if your data was on one of these apps and you want access to it? There are two approaches for getting files from discontinued apps: using “File Sharing” to access directly on the iOS device, and by rootling through an iOS backup.
Use File Sharing to examine files on an iOS device
Not every app supports File Sharing, but app developers who want to provide their users with easier access to their data tend to enable it.
How to access files from iOS apps with File Sharing:
- Load iTunes (or Finder on iOS 10.15+) and connect your iOS device.
- Navigate to your device within the interface. (You’ll see an image of the device in the top-left.)
- Click File Sharing .
- Choose the app you want to get files from.
- Select the files you want to extract and click Save .
iTunes’ File Sharing interface
If the app in question has a lot of files, it’s easier to export them all and sort through them on your computer, rather than through this interface.
The File Sharing interface doesn’t show files from every app on your device: only the apps that support File Sharing. If the app you need doesn’t show files here, there’s another option: looking at a backup.
Access files from discontinued apps using an iOS backup
By browsing through an iPhone or iPad’s backup, users are able to see all of the files that an iOS app includes.
- Create a backup of your iPhone or iPad if you don’t already have one.
- Download and run iPhone Backup Extractor; it’ll automatically find and display your backups.
- Select your backup on the left-hand side of the app, and choose App view to get a list of all apps.
- Select the app in question from the list of apps, and click Extract all .
That will automatically recover all of an app’s files from your backup and save them on your computer where you can examine them at your leisure.

(Pocket-lint) – Congratulations! You own a new iPhone or iPad.
Although you’re happy to be an owner of a new iOS device, you’re likely losing sleep over whether all your app data and game saves have transferred between your old device and the glorious new one. Well, stop worrying, because like most things in life, there is a simple solution available. All you have to do is use iExplorer. Allow us to explain.
Transferring app and game data
As LifeHacker noted, most apps and games allow you to transfer data via the built-in iTunes backup service, which involves plugging in your old device and syncing it with iTunes, then plugging in your new device and choosing restore, and restoring data for those apps.
But if you want to ensure that all your hard work in a particular game, such as Minecraft, is saved and moved to your new device, here’s how to back up individual app data to your computer:
- Download iExplorer (here). It’s an app that facilitates the transfer of files from your iOS device to your computer, selectively, in order to create backups. It not only works for apps but also music, voice memos, photos, SMS, etc. The idea is that you can transfer files from your device to your computer without having to sync everything.
- Download the app you want to transfer data to on your new iOS device. So, if you want to transfer data from Minecraft, download the Minecraft app on your new device.
- Plug your old device into your computer and launch iExplorer. Your device should show up in the file browser.
- You’ll then want to click the arrow next to your device name, followed by the arrow next to Apps. From there, find the app you want to transfer data from, and then click the arrow.
- While inside the app’s main folder, you’ll see a folder called Documents (all of your app and game data should be located in Documents). Copy the folder to your desktop.
- Disconnect your old device from your computer, then plug in your new device, and find the app you want to transfer data to on your new device using the same steps listed above.
- Find the Documents folder for the app on your new device, and then copy all the data in the Documents folder on your desktop to the new device. Simples, right?
Did something not work right?
There’s a few things that can go wrong when using this method to transfer app and game data. You must remember that different apps use different save files, so you might have to adjust the above steps and copy several files or sometimes even just one file. The method should work for most apps, but just in case, here’s some extra advice:
- Sometimes you might have two separate versions of an app (like an iPhone version and a HD iPad version), but you should still be able to transfer data between the two.
- Not all apps save their files in the Documents folder, and in those instances, try copying the Library folder (which saves smaller high scores and other data) in addition to the Documents folder.
- Some apps use iCloud, such as iA Writer, and in doing so, you have nothing to fret over. Just make sure the app is syncing to iCloud (more information here). It might be automatically doing that, or you need to turn on the feature in the app’s settings. Most apps still save data locally though, meaning you can always use iExplorer if you prefer.
Let us know in the comments if you’ve used iExplorer or have any other suggestions to add.
Want an alternative solution?
If you don’t feel like messing around with iExplorer or even Apple’s iTunes backup service, you can always use iCloud. But first, go here to learn about the differences between backing up with iCloud versus iTunes.
iCloud, the cloud storage offered by Apple, lets you create cloud-based backups of individual apps installed on your old Phone. Even third-party apps and games that you’ve installed and backed up can be restored back to a new iPhone from iCloud.
To pick and choose which apps on your old iPhone should be backed up to iCloud and which ones should be left alone:
- Tap the Settings icon from the home screen
- Locate and tap the iCloud option under Settings
- Scroll down and tap the Storage option
- Tap Manage Storage on the Storage screen
- From the Manage Storage screen, tap the name of your device
- Choose the apps you want to backup data from
- Swipe to turn off/on the toggle button for each app
Now you have to transfer the iCloud backup of these apps to your new device.
Start by turning on your new device. A “Hello” screen should appear. If you’ve finished setting up your new device already, you need to erase the device (Tap Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings). After you’ve erased it, your device will restart and you’ll see the “Hello” screen. Now you can transfer a backup of apps to your new device by following these steps:
- Swipe left to right on the “Hello” screen
- Go through the setup until you see the Wi-Fi screen
- Tap a Wi-Fi network to join
- Continue until you see the Apps & Data screen
- From there, tap Restore from iCloud Backup > Next
- Enter your Apple ID and password
- Choose a backup
- Stay connected and wait for the process to complete
Go here to Apple’s support page for more details about transferring content from an iPhone to a new device.
So, it’s safe to say that between all of the above methods, your app and game data should never be lost.
