Apple’s stock health app is collecting our health status every day. With this handy app, we can see directly how many steps we walked, how many calories we burned to measure our body. However, should you switch to a new iPhone, all previous health data will not automatically be transferred into new iOS devices. Surely it’s not happy to lose all existing health records and start from scratch. In this tutorial we will show you how to import health data to new iPhone 7/7 Plus/6s/6 Plus/6/5 with several handy steps.

The methods are actually very simple. All you need to do can be summarized as backup your health data from old iPhone and restore it afterwards. Both iCloud and iTunes can get this job done. Before you start to transfer health data from one iPhone to another, you need to read carefully about the advantages and disadvantages of each way.

Method 1: How to Restore Health Data from iTunes Backup into New iPhone

Many users replied to us that they found iTunes can’t help migrate health data between devices. This misunderstanding is caused by the fact that regular backup by iTunes doesn’t include health and activity data out of security consideration. What you need to is enabling encryption backup manually. Specific steps are listed below:

Method 2: How to Import Health App Data to a New iOS Device From iCloud

With this method you need to take the risk that data could be missing from your new iPhone, and iCloud may leave some data behind particularly for large backups. If asked to make a choice between the two, I will prefer iTunes encrypted backup more despite that iTunes is slow and always gets stuck on my computer.

Best iPhone Files Transfer and Management Alternative Tool to iTunes

Both iTunes and iCloud have restrictions to transfer and restore iOS data. On the one hand, only one-way transfer is supportive by iTunes or iCloud, on the other side, all data in iPhone will be replaced after restoring from backup.
