The key to migrate all the files from an old to a new iPhone successfully is to create an encrypted backup. You can do this with iCloud or iTunes, or both if you want, but ultimately only be using one of the backups to restore and migrate your stuff to the new iPhone in July.

    Choose "Backup" and let the copy of your device is complete. 

Once the process is complete backup security, you can now migrate your stuff to the new iPhone Plus iPhone 7 or 7.

Step 2: Migrating data to the iPhone 7

With the newly completed copy of security, you are ready to set up the new iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus and migrate your data.

    Turn on the new iPhone 7 and go through the typical process configuration (language, wi-fi, etc)
    When you reach the screen "Applications and Data", you can select the backup to migrate all the files from your old smartphone.
