(MENAFN – Youm7) If you are planning to upgrade your iPhone to one of the new iPhone 12 phones, it is important to make sure to save a backup copy of the old phone’s settings before upgrading, and the reason is not to start over and waste a lot of time adjusting the new phone settings, and here is 4 Things you should do on your old iPhone before upgrading to iPhone 12:

1- Upgrade to iOS 14.2:

If you haven’t upgraded to the latest iOS version yet, it’s time for that, as all new iPhone 12 models will arrive with iOS 14.2 preinstalled, so to ensure a smooth transition from the old to the new phone, you must update Through the following steps:

Open the (Settings) application on the current iPhone phone.

• Click on the General option.

• Click on the option (operating system update) Software Update, in case of a new update, you will likely see a notification stating that it is ready, press the option (download and install) Download and install, and this can only take several minutes.

2- Upload your photo library to iCloud:

If you have a lot of photos in the photo library of your current iPhone, it is time to transfer or backup them to your iCloud account, to do so follow these steps:

Open the (Settings) application on the current iPhone phone.

• Select your profile, then select iCloud.

• Switch the Photos option to ON.

And if you have never uploaded your photos to iCloud before and you have a lot of photos, this process may take some time to complete, in addition to that, once you upgrade to the new phone, you will find that transferring data will take less time.

3- Turn off two-factor authentication on the current iPhone 12:

If you are using an authentication app on your current iPhone to generate two-factor authentication (2FA) codes, you must turn off two-factor authentication for those sites that use codes before switching to the new phone, and then activate two-factor authentication again when the new iPhone 12 is powered on.

4- Create a new backup:
