    If I setup my new iPhone using the side by side activation - would that be considered setting up the new device with a clean install?

    Or does it not count as a clean install? Trying to find the easiest way to do it without having to re-setup everything.

    I know how to do a clean install...I’m wondering if I set it up next to another device (to transfer the settings) if that still makes it a clean install or if it’s not considered “clean” anymore.

    If you want a "clean" install you're gonna have to setup all the Settings manually.

    I don’t know what you’re trying to achieve, but to me, a REAL clean install is restoring with iTunes and setting up as new. Then you can adjust your settings manually.

    The absolutely true clean install is setting up your device as new after reinstalling iOS in DFU mode ;)
