    Last night I transferred all the data from my 6S to my new iPhone 8.

    Feels a little slower now or is it just in my head???

    I used a MacBook Pro and USB cable.

    Probably from indexing. I had no issues being slow. I thought you got the X? Or did you return it?

    How long does it take to index? And I turned off my phone and turned it back on, will that mess up the indexing process?

    And nah I only tried the X multiple times at different stores for long periods of time. Love it btw.

    There is no set time for how long an iPhone can index, which can be variable based on how much information was primarily stored on the previous iPhone.

    Ok but is it ok if I turned off and then on my iPhone while it was indexing???

    I wouldn’t worry, it’s not an exact science. Use it for a few days. If it’s still slower than you anticipated, do a clean install and see if that’s better.

    I restore as new annually to ensure speed and not to carry Beta bugs over. Always end up with more free space too.
