Step 3. Make sure that's the Apple ID you want to use and click "Continue."
Step 4. Afterward, you can see an animation on the new iPhone. Hold the old iPhone over the new one, center the animation in the viewfinder, then you can see a message saying "Finish on New iPhone."
Step 5. Enter the passcode of the other iPhone on your new iPhone.
Step 6. Follow the on-screen instructions to set up FaceID or Touch ID on the new device. Click "Continue," and you will be provided with the option to transfer data from iPhone or download data from iCloud.
