Planning to Buy iPhone 12? 3 Ways to Prepare Your Phone Now

Planning to Buy iPhone 12? 3 Ways to Prepare Your Phone Now
Geekers -  September this year is the most anticipated moment because of the launch of the latest iPhone. This year, however, it looks like we'll have to wait a bit longer for Apple's new phones. However, how do you buy the iPhone 12 and what should you prepare before buying it?

Rumors are currently pointing to several new iPhone 12 models, with a new design (dark blue?), 5G connectivity, and improved performance.

With this year's launch likely to take place in October, or possibly even later, you have extra time to prepare. Below are some steps you can, and should, take today to get ready for your next upgrade.

Triage your apps and photos

It's not a pleasant task, but it's a necessary one. Sit down and go through all the apps installed on your phone, delete the ones you are no longer using. Then, open the Photos app and delete all the random screenshots, photos, and videos you saved for no reason.

Your iPhone will feel tidier, and you'll free up storage space, and in turn, lower the amount of space you need to back up your phone. Another benefit is that it takes less time to restore your new iPhone when you set it up.

Make sure your iPhone phone data is backed up

It's easy to ignore messages telling you that you're running out of iCloud storage space and that your phone is no longer backed up, but you'll wish you had a backup plan when it came time to switch phones.

If you run out of iCloud storage space, you have a few options: Pay for more storage, change what's backed up or use your computer to back up.

iOS upgrade availability section? Check your status

If you're using an upgrade program from Apple or your carrier, it's a good idea to check how much payment you have left before you become eligible to upgrade your iPhone.

If you bought the iPhone 11 Pro Max on launch day through Apple's upgrade program, and you're already eligible to upgrade you've made the required 12 monthly device payments. With the iPhone 12 launching a few weeks later than usual, you may be in the same situation.

If you bought your phone from a carrier on a payment plan, sign in to your account or contact customer support to check your eligibility. If you're buying a phone through Apple's upgrade program, you can use the Apple Store app on your phone to check the status of your iPhone 12.

Depending on when you upgraded to your current iPhone, you may have to make another payment (or more) before you can upgrade. Knowing what that amount is now will help you budget for future upgrades.

The new iPhone will launch with iOS 14, currently in beta. There are many new and exciting features in the update which will also make its official debut this fall. Current user favourite? Redesigned homescreen, complete with widgets.
