With iCloud, you no longer need to plug your
iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad into
iTunes on
your Mac or Windows PC to set it up for the first time. Now you can do it
faster and more easily than ever before over-the-air and right on your
device!

*How to set up a new iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad with iCloud (clean install)

When you turn on your new iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, you’ll be greeted
with a Lock screen that simply says “Hello” in many different languages.
This is where we start the setup process.

1.After your iPhone or iPad powers on, you’ll see a welcome screen, Slide
your finger across the bottom where it says slide to set up.

2.Now choose your language from the choices presented to you.

3.Select the country or region you are in.

4.Now choose your wifi network and enter the password for it if there is
one. If you don’t have access to WiFi or no networks are found, you can
choose Use Cellular instead or wait until you’re within range of an
accessible wifi network.

5.Now on the Location Services screen, choose whether you’d like to have
location services on by default. Make sure you read the description of what
location services are before deciding whether or not you’d like to enable or
disable them. Keep in mind that certain apps like Maps need location
services to operate properly.

6.On the next screen, tap on Set up as New iPhone.

7.Now choose to either sign in with an existing Apple ID or create a new,
free one. If you don’t want to do either right now or you don’t have an
Apple ID yet – we’ll cover how to get one in a minute, you can tap on Skip
This Step.

8.If you didn’t choose to skip signing into an Apple ID, do so on the next
screen. If you use two separate IDs for iCloud and iTunes, you can choose
that option as well under the login by tapping on Use different Apple IDs
for iCloud and iTunes.

9.Agree to Apple’s Terms and Conditions on the next screen. The following
screen will ask you to confirm that you agree one more time.

10. On the next screen, choose whether or not you want to use iCloud to
access data on other iOS devices and to store your photos, contacts, and
calendars.

11. Now choose whether or not you’d like to enable Find My iPhone. We
highly suggest that you do.

12. The next screen lets you choose what phone numbers and emails
associated with your Apple ID that you’d like to use on your new iPhone on
conjunction with iMessage. Simply tap on them to enable or disable them. You
can always change these choices later in Settings.

13. Next you can Create a Passcode for your iPhone if you’d like. If not,
just tap on Don’t Add Passcode above the keypad.

14. Now choose whether or not you’d like to activate Siri. We recommend
enabling Siri unless you really have a reason not to.

15. Lastly, choose whether or not you’d like your iPhone to send
diagnostic information to Apple. Read the description before making your
choice.

16. On the Welcome to iPhone screen, just tap on Get Started and your
iPhone Home screen will be displayed for the first time.

*How to restore your iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad from an iCloud backup

1.After your iPhone or iPad powers on, you’ll see a welcome screen, Slide
your finger across the bottom where it says slide to set up.

2.Now choose your language from the choices presented to you.

3.Select the country or region you are in.

4.Now choose your WiFi network and enter the password for it if there is
one. If you don’t have access to WiFi, you can choose Use Cellular but keep
in mind, only some things in your iCloud backup will be restored without
WiFi. Others won’t be triggered until you’re on WiFi. Or you can choose to
restore from an iTunes backup if you have access to one.

5.Now on the Location Services screen, choose whether you’d like to have
location services on by default. Make sure you read the description of what
location services are before deciding whether or not you’d like to enable or
disable them. Keep in mind that certain apps like Maps need location
services to operate properly.

6.On the next screen, tap on Restore from iCloud backup and enter your
credentials when asked.

7.Now agree to the Terms and Conditions. You will be asked to verify that
you agree to them a second time.

8.If you have iCloud backups, your iPhone will now show them. Tap on the
backup name that you’d like to restore from.

That’s all there is to it. Your iPhone will begin restoring from your iCloud
backup. Keep in mind that the more data you have, the longer it will take.
iCloud will start by just restoring your system settings so you can start
using your iPhone as soon as possible but apps, photos, videos, and other
types of media may take a while to finish coming down from iCloud. Just be
patient and if you have to jump off of wifi, no worries, iCloud will pick up
right where it left off next time you are connected to WiFi.
