Yes you read it correct NOT the 12 or 13 models but the older 11 is what we get asked about most, crazy right. Err “Hello”. Whether it is your first time using Apple iPhone, or you are upgrading from an old iPhone. You landed on the correct page. We will discuss a complete beginner's guide for the newbies who just got their brand new iPhone.

iOS – iOS is the operating system that is used for iPhones and iPad. This is like a macOS on the iMac and Windows system on PC. iOS also conducts an update from time to time so make sure to check it on your “Settings”. iOS received an update for security features, resolves bugs, and add new features.

Setting Up Your iPhone 11:

On your iPhone, the Power Button is on the right side of your device. But before you turn it on, you may need to insert your SIM card. The SIM tray is located on the right side of the device, below the Power button. To insert your SIM card, you need to use the SIM tool (which is included inside the iPhone box) into the small hole to eject the SIM tray. By then, you may insert your SIM (Nano-SIM) card into the SIM tray with the gold contact facing down and the notched edge on the upper right. Push the SIM tray back till you heard that it clicks and is flush with the side of your iPhone 11 device.

Now after your SIM has been inserted. You may now turn on and Activate Your Device. Choose your preferred language followed by your country/region. You will now then be asked if you want to use the Quick-Start to migrate your settings from an Old iPhone Device. For those who owned an older iOS/iPhone device, you may opt to follow the on-screen instructions, otherwise hit Set Up Manually and pick a Wi-fi network to connect.

Once your device is now connected to Wi-fi and now online, you may now be able to complete the following:

Touch ID: This is Apple's fingerprint recognition. You may not need to enter your passcode or Apple ID password.

Face ID: If you owned an iPhone X, you will be asked to scan your face, making your own iPhone recognized you.

Passcode: Even if you got the Touch ID and Face ID, you still be needing to have a passcode. There will be Six Digits needed for a secure passcode.

Next is you may now need to Restore or Set Up as New. You will be prompt and invited to either set up your device as a new iPhone or restore it from previous backups. If you owned an older device that you want to replace, you may connect it to your Mac or your PC/Laptop, launch the iTunes and create a backup. You can then select Restore from iTunes Backup on your new device, connect it to your PC/Mac, and choose your backup. All that you selected such as apps, photos, personal data and etc. will be migrated. If you also have an iCloud Backup, you can choose Restore from iCloud Backup but only choose this option if you lost your last device and creating a fresh local backup in iTunes is not possible. If this is your first iOS device, you have two options, to choose to Set Up as New iPhone or Move Data from Android.

Create your Apple ID and Log in. Since this is your first time having an Apple Device, you may choose and tap Don't Have an Apple ID button. Apple now uses two-factor authentication (2FA) by default, 2FA uses two pieces of information to verify who you really are. So when you login, you will be prompt to input your password and input a code to verify that it is you who is trying to login. After this, you'll need to Accept the Apple Terms and Conditions, by then, you will be given to enable the access of the following: Location Service, Apple Pay, Siri, iPhone Analytics, App Analytics, True Tone Display, Home Button Click, Display Zoom.

After this setup, you will be seeing and be able to hit Get Started, and you will now be seeing your new iPhone home screen for the first time.

You should keep your iOS system up-to-date. Go to Settings > General > Software. Before updating your device, make sure you have a full complete backup. Your device will remind you that an update is ready. And will continue to remind you until you apply the update.
