    So, new iPhone SE arrived today and I tried to use its Bluetooth auto-setup mode using all the settings from my iPhone 6S…





    I gave up after 25 mins faffing around and just restored everything from my latest backup.

    PS – I thought a failing battery – especially with Bluetooth enabled – and a sluggish touchscreen were the only two issues on my iPhone 6S… until my brother phoned and almost burst my eardrum. Turns out that my iPhone 6S is *very* quiet even on maximum volume but new iPhone SE is absolutely *deafening* at default volume. 🙂

      Did you resort to iCloud or iTunes/Finder for the ultimate restore?

      I can see where the phones were too far away in your first picture. 🙂

      I use iTunes to backup/restore so, in this instance, a local restore.

      I never use iCloud for several reasons:-

      1. The default 5GB iCloud storage allowance is never enough when you have multiple iOS devices.
      2. I dislike paying a monthly fee for additional storage when I have so much available locally.
      3. I tried using iCloud once, albeit many years ago, for backup/restore and couldn’t believe how slow a restore ‘from the cloud’ was. On the rare occasions I need to carry out a restore I tend to need it quickly, not at a leisurely pace determined by the vagaries of wifi, Apple and/or my ISP.
      4. I don’t like my data outside of my control.
