  • 1.Back up and restore your data

Before you start using your new iPhone 7, you need to take a backup of your old iPhone and restore. You can either take the backup to iCloud or use iTunes. However, iTunes is the most preferred method out of them. You need to connect the iPhone to your Mac, open iTunes and then click on the phone icon that is located in the toolbar. It is a good idea to go for an “Encrypt local backup” to make sure that your health data and passwords are backed up. Once you take the backup, you can connect your new iPhone 7 and restore data.

  • 2.Finish the setup

You will need to complete all the remaining steps in your ‘iPhone 7 Setup’ before you start using it. For example, you will have to include the login details of your iCloud account with the security code. You will also have to agree to the terms and conditions of iCloud. In addition, you will need to set up how other people can reach you through Facetime and iMessage.

  • 3.Set up Apple Pay and Touch ID

Next, you need to set up the Touch ID and take necessary measures to increase the security of your device. The touch ID can also be considered as the quickest method available for you to unlock your device. It can keep you away from the hassle of typing complicated passcodes. Once you set up a touch ID, you will be able to configure Apple Pay as well. When you try to configure Apple Pay with your new iPhone, you would see that the credit cards have disappeared. This has been done for your own safety and you will have to re-enter all the card details.

  • 4.Feel the new home button

Apple has resigned the home button with iPhone 7. In fact, it doesn’t come with a cut-out button and it doesn’t move when you press. The button is fused to the chin of your iPhone and it does not move once you press. However, you will still be able to feel the vibration when you press on the home button.

  • 5.Try the new camera

If you have an iPhone 7 Plus, you must try the new camera. In fact, the iPhone 7 Plus comes out with the most advanced camera that Apple has ever made. The zooming feature offered by this iPhone camera is impressive. When you tap on the 1x or 2x button that is located near the shutter button, you will be able to switch between telephoto camera and wide angle camera modes.

  • 6.Edit a live photo

Apple introduced live photos along with iPhone 6S. However, an advanced live photo editor has been introduced along with iPhone 7. You already know how to capture a live photo with your iPhone. Once you capture an image, it would record 1.5 seconds before and after, which would give life to an animated photo. People who want to edit their live photos have been provided with that option with iPhone 7. You can simply recolor, crop or do many other changes that you do to traditional photos with the help of this feature.

  • 7.Figure out the new airpods

The iPhone 7 doesn’t come with a 3.5mm jack. Therefore, you will have to purchase a 3.5mm adapter or go for the airpods. This is a new and an impressive technology and you would be amazed to see how it works. Just listen to your favorite songs with the new airpods and experience how it feels. You would definitely love the new experience.

  • 8.Pair your Apple Watch

If you own an Apple watch, you will have to pair it with your new iPhone 7. Then you can make sure all the Activity Data is getting backed up to your Health Database. On the other hand, you will be able to get all the notifications right onto your Apple watch. Before you do that, you need to unpair the Apple Watch from your old iPhone. Then you can launch Apple Watch app on the new device and pair it again. However, it is important to keep in mind that the user interface of this app has been changed with the new iOS 10 update. But it will not take a long time for you to figure out the components.

  • 9.Add Widgets to your Today Page

You will not be able to find the “Slide to Unlock” feature in iOS 10 update. But if you swipe right on the lock screen, you will be able to see all the widgets in your Today Page. On the other hand, you can launch the Camera app by swiping right. These widgets will assist you to save a considerable amount of time throughout your day to day activities. If you want to add new widgets to Today Page, you need to scroll down to the bottom of Today Page screen and select the Edit button.

  • 10.Update your apps

Last but not least, you need to update all the apps in your iPhone 7. Otherwise, you will not be able to experience the benefits associated with all the new capabilities of iOS 10. You will also have to update the operating system from iOS 10.0.0 to iOS 10.0.1. The new capabilities have helped people to make their lives easy when using the new iPhone 7. For example, now you can use Siri with Uber and share your notes through the Messages app.
