i heard again i repeat i heard that restoring from a back up from a previous phone can transfer some bugs from previous phones and thus limit speed and battery life- Sure. iCloud syncing - or any other type of syncing solution.
With that said, I don't see any reason not to restore from a previous backup...
Not true, I've set up multiple phones as new AND from backups and there is absolutely no difference. I only restore from backups anymore. It's so nice to have everything as it was before with all your info, settings, etc.is there a way to keep all my contacts but "start as new iPhone"
i heared from previous threads that it may be more beneficial to start as new
Yup.The possibilities of what restoring from backup can do on new phones is always mostly unknown for the first few weeks. Last year, people who restored from backup ended up with voice control instead of Siri, among other things.
It's not an urban legend at all. It's always safer to not restore from a backup on a new phone, because even if there's a 95% chance restoring from a backup won't mess anything up, there's a 100% chance setting up as new won't mess anything up
i never understood the process of setting up anything with iCloud haha so i never use it haha guess i gotta do some exploringI started As New this time. The heck with keeping all the texts.
As far as contacts go I had already set that up to sync with iCloud so it was easy to get them back on the new phone.
