1. iPhone 14 Set Up Stuck Problems

3. Battery Drain Fast

Another common problem is the iPhone battery drain fast issue. Users say their new iPhone 14 (Plus/Pro/Pro Max) battery runs out quicker than it should.

One or more of the apps may drain the battery faster. Furthermore, the new Always-On Display feature on the iPhone 14 Pro’s may also be a culprit.

Bonus Part: Switching to New iPhone 14? 4 Ways to Help you Migrate Your Old Data

If your iPhone 14 Pro overheating during the setup process, especially while restoring an iCloud backup, this section is for you. The methods mentioned below are also applicable if your iPhone gets stuck during the process.

1. Back Up Old iPhone to Computer and Restore it to New iPhone 14 (Plus/Pro/Pro Max)

There are two ways you can backup your iPhone to a computer and restore it from there.

While the first one usually works well, it’s not the recommended method. If you’re having problems restoring from iCloud, you might also face the same issues while restoring from Finder/iTunes too. Plus, you might have to reset your new iPhone again to access the Transfer Data screen of the setup process.

On the other hand, Tenorshare iCareFone doesn’t have all those problems. With iCareFone, you don’t have to rely on the usual setup process to transfer your data. Instead, iCareFone manually backs up your data from your old iPhone to the computer, then moves all those files to the new iPhone without a problem.

The best part is that you can restore the backup after you successfully set up your new iPhone 14 (Plus/Pro/Pro Max) and none of your device data will be erased.

To use iCareFone, follow the steps.

  • Download and install iCareFone on your computer. Connect your old iPhone with it and open iCareFone.

    transfer data to new iPhone 14
  • In the Backup & Restore section, back up all the files to your computer.

    transfer data to new iPhone 14
  • When the backup is completed, remove the old phone from the computer and connect the new one.

    transfer data to new iPhone 14
  • In the Backup & Restore section, select to restore all the files you previously backed up — and they will be automatically restored to the new iPhone.

    transfer data to new iPhone 14
  • Now, you can get all your old iPhone data on your new iPhone 14 (Plus/Pro/Pro Max).

2. iCloud Backup

restore from iCloud backup

If you’ve installed the iOS 16.0.2 update, the iCloud Backup functionality might start working as expected. You’re free to give it a go once again.

However, you may still face the iPhone 14 Pro not turning on after transfer issue if you use iCloud.

Furthermore, if you have a slow or unreliable network connection, this method may not even work as it uses the internet to download your data from the cloud.

The best course of action here is to download Tenorshare iCareFone and manually move your data using that.

3. iTunes Backup

restore from iCloud backup

This method has a slightly better success rate than using an iCloud backup, but it’s still not as reliable as Tenorshare iCareFone.

It has the added advantage that it backs up your data to a computer and not on the internet. So, your internet stability or speed doesn’t play a part.

However, the method used while restoring data from iTunes/Finder by the system is the same as restoring from iCloud. So, both may not work as expected for you. So, what must you do? Simply rely on Tenorshare iCareFone as that has a 100% success rate.

4. Move to iOS

move to iOS

If you’re moving data from an Android device to an iPhone 14 (Plus/Pro/Pro Max), you can also use the Move to iOS app.

Download this app from the Play Store on your old Android phone. Then, while you’re on the Transfer Data page while setting up the new iPhone, select to restore from an Android device.

  • The con with this method is that it only works if you’re moving from Android to iPhone. You can’t use it if you’re moving from an old iPhone to a new one.
  • Furthermore, users suggest this app isn’t very reliable and has a terrible success rate.

The Bottom Line

So, there you have it, these are all the iPhone 14 issues you must be aware of.

Remember, it’s recommended to always check for the latest updates in your Settings app to make sure your phone is on the latest version. Apple usually releases bug fix updates to sort out issues really fast. Tenorshare ReiBoot can also help you repair your iOS within several clicks.

Plus, if you’re having troubles with data transfer, it’s recommended to use a better tool for the job, Tenorshare iCareFone to be precise.
