Hello, I was wondering how do I transfer text messages from my old iPhone 6 to a newly iPhone X without using restore? I’d appreciate if someone can help me out here. Thanks in advance.
Some of your messages may carry a great sentimental value. To synchronise texts across iPhone devices, you can sync it to iTunes or iCloud and make a backup of the old phone, then restore that backup on the new phone. However, note that restore from backup is all or nothing and you cannot selectively restore data. If this is not what you are looking for, I would like to recommend a professional iOS backup extractor called iFonebox to you.
iFonebox is designed to help you recover/download up to 17 kinds of data like contacts, texts, safari history, call records, reminders, notes, photos, voice memos, videos, QQ messages, WeChat data, WhatsApp data, etc. Here’re some of its useful features:
- It is very easy to use and highly effective
- It has three powerful working modes: recover from iOS device, recover from iTunes backup, recover from iCloud backup. So you can find data and recover quickly
- You can even preview the files that are recoverable for free before you purchase
- You are able to selectively retrieve data without restoring the whole backup
- It works well with almost all types of iOS device, including iPhone X
Losing precious data could drive us crazy. However, accidents always happened. You may lose them due to an accidental deletion, water damaged, various attack, or even unknown reasons. Thus it’s necessary to back them up to your computer to ensure them safe. With the help of iFonebox, you are able to separately transfer them from your iPhone/iPad/iPod touch to your computer.
Before we start the instructions, you need to download the program to your computer. iFonebox has two available versions: Windows version and Mac version. Please make sure to install the right version for your computer. Once you have installed the program, next I will show you how to move text messages from one iPhone to another.
Step one: Launch iFonebox
Connect your new iPhone X and click Recover from iTunes Backup File, you’ll see all backups you have listed in the interface, choose the right backup, then click “Select” button to begin.
Step two: Scan data
It will scan automatically after you click the “Messages” icon, it might take your some time, please wait patiently.
Step three: Recover data
Now you can recover the data you want from backup. Choose the items you want to restore and click the “Recover to device”.
