    I just got a new iPhone. How can I change the starting number of the first photo from IMG_0001.JPG to the last number on my previous iPhone? I don't want my new photos to be given the same file name as on the previous iPhone.

    i think it is impossible from new iphone. maybe it'll work if you restore from icloud backup.

    After restoring from an earlier backup, the sequence from the old phone was restored.

    You could also use the burst photo option to get to the number you want. It will take a while and you will need to
    Delete a bunch of photos, but can delete a whole burst album easily.
