Set up your new iPhone XS the right way

For many people, iPhone XS will be radically different from previous iPhones. However, iPhone setup has not changed much. However, while you may find yourself on a familiar floor, there are still a lot of small things to do before you launch your new phone for the first time (or soon thereafter). Let's take a look at how to set up the new iPhone XS in the right way.

Prepare iPhone XS the right way

With iPhone XS, you'll be able to take advantage of Apple's automatic setup program. If you're coming from an old iPhone without Face ID, you'll find that the Touch ID has disappeared. (This means that you will only have to save one face, instead of several fingers.)

If you're using a serial upgrade tool, and you're coming from an old iPhone X, nothing will change. But you'll still need to upgrade the same way.

You're likely to restore your new iPhone from a backup of your current iPhone. If so, you only need to do two things:

Make sure that you have a recent backup.
Use Apple's new automatic setup feature to get started.
Number 1 is as simple as going to the iCloud settings on your iPhone and checking for a fresh automatic backup. If not, do one manually. Go to Settings> Your Name> iCloud> iCloud Backup and tap Back Up Now. Wait until it ends.

For number 2, Auto Setup allows you to copy your Apple ID settings and home Wi-Fi settings from another device, just by bringing them closer.

If your old iPhone (or iPad) is already running iOS 11 or iOS 12, just put the devices next to each other. Then follow the prompts to avoid having to write your Apple ID and Wi-Fi passwords. This makes the iPhone's initial setup smoother.

Set up a new iPhone XS from scratch
The guide below assumes that you are setting up your new iPhone from scratch. If you do not want to do so, you'll definitely want to see the instructions for backing up your previous iPhone with an encrypted backup in iTunes. Even if you back up your new iPhone, you'll still need to run this list to make sure you're getting the most out of your device.

IPhone Setup: The Basics

Re-download only the apps you need - this app is necessary. We all have so many apps on the iPhone that we do not use. This is the main reason we prepared a clean, to be honest. Click the App Store app and make sure you're signed in to your Apple account. (Click on a small head icon on the Updates panel to see which account you're signed in to.) Only bleed the apps you've used in the past six months. Or be bold: just download the things you use every day. We are willing to bet to be very few.

Setting Do not Disturb - If you're like the rest of us, you're constantly receiving notifications, iMessages and other types of distractions on your iPhone. Set the Do Not Disturb setting in the Settings app (located in the second section at the bottom of the page, under Notifications and Control Center). You will need to schedule times when you need not to be disturbed.

You can switch to On and set the times when you want to keep notifications off your face. Try 10 pm to 7 am if you can. PRO Tip: Allow some things if there is an emergency: Enable Allow connections from Favorites, and change the recurring calls to On. IOS 12 also lets you turn on the "Do Not Disturb" feature in Bedtime, which ignores all alerts, and even hides them from the lock screen so you do not get harassed when picking up your phone to check the time.

Customize your iPhone setting

Go retro with your ringtone - set your iPhone ringtone to something no one else will have these days: Xylophone. Press Settings, then tap Sounds. Swipe all the way down the menu and click on Classic. You will switch to a list of all sounds from the original iPhone, including Xylophone, which seems to me like something of law and order. There is nothing more distinctive. Since no one else is using this old and polyphonic ringing tone, you'll hear a ringtone for your iPhone right away.
What about those old tunes? If you purchase from iTunes, it will be easy to restore. Better yet, why not make your ring tones using the free Garage Band application? You can start from scratch, or use any song in your music library.
