I am very knowledgeable on Windows and Andriod but never used an Apple iPhone.
A relative of mine (who is NOT very computer literate) has on old iPhone 4 but just bought an iPhone 7 and he wants to copy all the data (contacts, photos, messages etc) from the 4 to the 7.
He says he is going to drop both phones off at my house tomorrow while he goes out for the day so I can get it done. Hence I thought I would do some research first.
I have read the various articles on the internet about doing it with iCloud or iTunes and it keeps mentioning logging on with an Apple id.
Do you HAVE to use an Apple ID when setting up a new Apple phone? In other words will he already have an Apple ID?
I know he uses Gmail on his phone and I am not sure he has an Apple ID, so do I NEED an Apple ID to copy all this data to iCloud or iTunes and restore it to the new phone or can it be done without setting up an Apple ID.
p.s. He MAY have an Apple ID but he is not the most organized of people so even if he has he may not know what it is.
