Same thought when i dilemma for Pro Max, Rm400, already spent Rm4899, might as well just get the 30% Battery, Size and all those Camera Perks.... even i don't utilize it.

The iPhone Pro Max offers a better value if you can deal with the size.

Actually I have faith with DHL for Apple products. Bought iPads, iPhone, Airpods from Apple Store before, it never fails me, the clearance was fast. Same goes to UPS too.

My Macbook Pro is shipped via DHL as well.

I was overseas that time, item was safe even stored in their warehouse for 5 days at Glenmarie.

They often underpromise and overdeliver.

Hi all quick question
My plan for old-to-new phone transfer tmr
1. sign up for iCloud 50GB
2. sync and upload everything on my current iPhone ~31.7GB to iCloud
3. sycn iCloud datas to new phone
4. transfer nano sim from old to new phone

Anything i missed out?

Just use iTunes backup and restore.

It's much more reliable than iCloud which is slow and unstable.

Have you tested it? I may consider this as it could be easier and potentially faster.

I am used to iTunes method, been really reliable for me.

Thanks for your reply. Just wondering iTunes able to backup Whatsapp data?

My last transfer via iTunes was 2016 i think from 5S to 7+ nothing much on Whatsapp that time so dont bother

My tips is to turn off the WiFi and cellular connection then perform the backup and restore it on another phone.

Once restored on another phone, switch on WiFi on that phone and login to all your Whatsapp and etc.

This is be a perfect clone and 0 messages lost in the transfer.

Transferred data via the new quick start feature.

It was better than my old iTunes backup and restore method. Keeps everything including Whatsapp conversation.

Definitely more reliable than restoring from iCloud backup as it is a direct transfer from old device.

bro you do via wireless or wired?

Wireless since I don't have the Lightning to USB dongle. That thing costs RM189. mad.gif

Is the 12 on IOS 14.2? Need to update to be same/ newer than your current phone first before doing quick start right?
*
My 12 doesn't come in iOS 14.2 so it will be updated in the setup proces.

Wah izit...  didnt manage to use this feature..
Everything photos videos other apps are exactly the same as before??

Hopefully can try it to transfer from my wife XS to 11 pro later

My iTunes restore backup is nearly complete
*
Everything is the exact same clone.

The caveat is, those Whatsapp messages or anything received during the transition will not be transferred. So, quickly login to all apps in your new phone.

Nice.... its wireless through wifi direct right? How long did it take?
*
I think it depends on your usage and device as well. For my situation it uses WiFi direct.

I believe some older iPhones will go thru the WiFi router.

It will force an update on the new phone to iOS 14.2 so make sure you have a fast WiFi network ready for use.

Hi Guys, i'm thinking to upgrade my iPX to 12 pro...do you think the battery will last longer than X?
*
It's so much better than iPhone X.

I did the same transition. Gone from needing a top up middle of the day to none.
