Here is how to set up your iPhone 13
Create an Apple ID
So first things first, as soon as you unbox and switch on your new iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro you will be asked to create your Apple ID. Yes, this is a step we also follow when setting up a new Android device. So enter your credentials if you already have one or create a new one as it is absolutely free.
By following this step you can make purchases from the App Store and use other amazing features like iMessage, Facetime, FindMyPhone and so on. However, this is not really necessary but to make full use of your iPhone features you must do that. One can also set up the iPhone automatically.
Before we move ahead we need to make our phone safe as you have saved your hard-earned money and waited patiently to buy the iPhone 13. So another essential step to follow next is enabling FindMyPhone. It is a built-in feature that can help in tracking your device or remotely wiping the stored data if it gets lost or stolen.
Set up FaceID
Earlier devices came with a built-in Home button for a fingerprint scanner that Apple called TouchID. But the new device comes with FaceID, which is a facial recognition system to unlock the phone. Not just that, this feature allows you to make iTunes or App Store purchases, so make sure you have enabled it on your Apple iPhone 13.
Set up Focus
The iOS 15 brings the revamped Do Not Disturb feature now called ‘Focus’. This functionality filters out notifications and apps based on what a user wants to focus on. According to Apple, users can set their device to help them be in the moment by creating a custom Focus or selecting a suggested Focus, which uses on-device intelligence to suggest which people and apps are allowed to notify you during this time.
iTunes is another important tool that lets you add and remove music, videos, apps and more. Without this you won’t be able to transfer your data from your PC to iPhone or vice versa, so make sure it is in place.
