This iOS 15 trick gives you more iCloud storage for free ...

Did you just get a brand-new iPhone 13, 13 Mini, 13 Pro, and 13 Professional Max, or maybe one of Apple's older models like the iPhone 12, iPhone 11, or iPhone SE? No matter what your phone model, you'll need to transfer all of your messages, photos, videos, and music to your new phone. With iOS 15, Apple improved the method for moving your data from one iPhone to another. If you haven't yet downloaded the new OS, here's everything you need to know and how to install it.

Three ways to transfer data from your old iPhone to a new iPhone are listed. If you're using MacOS Catalina or later, you can connect your iPhone to your Mac via a charging cable and use Finder. This is fairly easy, but you'll need a Mac and plenty of disk space for the backup file.

You may also use Apple's direct data migration tool, which copies your old phone onto your new one without a computer or iCloud. The downside to this process is that you won't be able to use either phone until the transfer is complete, which can take an hour or more to complete.

The transfer is then done through iCloud. The advantage to this method is that you don't have to be tied to a computer and you'll have access to your old phone while the new one is downloading your backup file. The downside is that you'll need more storage on your iCloud account to store the backup file. If you're on Apple's free 5GB iCloud tier, that probably won't be enough.

You could pay Apple a couple of dollars per month for more storage. You may use iOS 15 to borrow some iCloud storage for free to backup your old iPhone, if you'd rather. Here's how you do it.
