I'm just curious, what is the best way to set up a new iphone? thank you.
This is my opinion of the order of important tasks for a new device.
wire pc connection, launch iTunes, take a backup
connect the device to your Apple ID which will allow iTunes as a point of control
delete all apps you are not interested in (you can get them back if you really need to)
check for updates
go thru Location Services, disable as many as reasonable (aka needed in Maps when active)
go thru every settings->app_name to set your preferences
take another backup at this point.
Thank you for your reply/help (y)much appreciated.
Ok, yesterday I received a new iphone SE & decided to set it up as new because I didn't want photos I had already taken on it.
I did not use itunes for that reason yet I now have 69 photos on it that got imported.
If I reset it to factory settings & start over, will those photos come back?
Hmm; not certain, but think you can avoid sync if you so choose.
Didn't work. Oh well.
