    This is probably a stupid question, but I was wondering if health data from an old iPhone is transferred when moving to a new iPhone? I've been worrying about this for a while.

    Thanks. Do you know if it does this automatically?

    The encrypted iTunes backups? No, they are not automatically set up. You need to set this up manually:

    According this support document, iCloud backups don't store health data. Only encrypted iTunes backups do.

    Recently went through this when I went from my 6 to 6S. ONLY way is via encrypted back-ups via iTunes. I guess they are doing this to keep our health data safe! You will just have to assign a password to your back-up and you are good to go!:apple:

    iCloud backups are always encrypted and do store health data according to this article - https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT203037
