How to setup new iPhone 15 by yourself at home
Follow these instructions to setup new iPhone 15 up and running once you have removed it from its packaging and given it a charge.
To start, wake up your iPhone by pressing and holding the sleep/power button, which,
depending on your model, may be located in the upper right corner of the device or along the
right edge. To activate your iPhone, drag the slider to the right using your finger.
Next, you will be prompted to provide some information on the location at which you intend
to use your iPhone. This requires you to select the language that you wish to be shown
onscreen as well as the country that you call home. Select the language that you want to use
by tapping it. Then, tap the country in which you intend to use the phone, and after that, hit
the Next button to proceed.
You will still be able to use your phone in other countries if you travel or relocate to other
countries, but the decision you select in this stage will determine which country you consider
to be your home country. You will have the option to make adjustments at a later time.
You now have the option of using Quick Start, which is available in iOS 11 and later versions
of Apple’s operating system. If you have more than one iOS device, you can use this
capability to import data from your other devices wirelessly.
Position your new phone near to your old phone in order to activate the Quick Start feature.
After linking the two devices using the camera on the new phone, you will continue to follow
the on-screen steps until you get a message that says “Finish on New iPhone.”
Continue with the instructions below after selecting Set Up iPhone Manually if you are not
utilizing Quick Start.
The next step is to establish a connection to a Wi-Fi network. If your phone is linked to your
computer while you are setting it up, you do not need to complete this step. However, if you
have a Wi-Fi network in the area where you are activating your iPhone, tap the name of the
network, and then enter the network’s password (if it has one).
You will no longer need to enter the password, since your iPhone will remember it going
forward, and you will be able to connect to the network whenever it is within range
- Your iPhone will seek to activate itself once you have linked it to either iTunes or a
wireless network. This step consists of three different kinds of work:
- The phone number that is associated with the iPhone will be displayed on the screen.
Tap the Next button if it’s your phone number. If this is not the case, call Apple at the
- Tap the Next button after you have provided the last four digits of your Social
Security number and the billing zip code associated with your phone company
- You need to provide your consent to the Terms and Conditions that will appear.
You will need to go into the settings of your iPhone in order to activate the safety measures that
you want, such as Touch ID, Face ID, and/or a passcode. They are not required, but it is strongly suggested
that you use at least one of them; nevertheless, we urge that you utilize both of them.
In the following stage, you will have the opportunity to transfer or restore data, such as
images, contacts, and applications. You can do this by accessing a backup stored in iCloud,
a Mac or PC, an other iPhone,
- You can restore data from a backup made on a computer by connecting the phone to
the computer using the charging cord that came with the phone. Wireless transfers
can be made from one device to another.
- Next, enter your Apple ID and password to sign in. If you already have an Apple ID
that you’ve used with a different Apple product in the past, you can use that one
- Follow the on-screen instructions after selecting the “Forgot password or don’t have
an Apple ID?” option. In order to establish an account, you will be required to input
information such as your birth date, full name, and email address.
