Quick Start iPhone Not Working? Here’s How to Fix It

Quick Start is a very handy feature that lets you transfer your old iPhone/iPad data to your new iPhone. However, while trying to transfer the data, the Quick Start menu fails to pop up on your new iPhone.

If you cannot see the Quick Start options, it may be due to a trivial reason like disabled Bluetooth connection on your device. Or if you are running on the iOS version 12 or below, it can also hinder the process. 

Whatever the scenarios, let’s quickly dive into the fixes and resolve the issue at hand.

How to Fix Quick Start Not Working?

Your iPhone and the other Apple device you are transferring the data to must be in close proximity. If not, the Quick Start menu may not show or won’t be able to transfer the data. After ensuring this, you can move forward with the fixes below for Quick Start not working on your iPhone.

Enable Bluetooth on Both Devices

One of the most important things that you should do is enable Bluetooth on both of your devices. It is particularly important because all your data syncing and copying will happen via Bluetooth. If the connection is not established, you can’t see the continue button on your older device and won’t be able to reach the Quick Start menu on your new iPhone.

So, enabling Bluetooth and keeping your device together is important to access and make the Quick Start menu workable.  

  1. Open the control center by swiping down from the bottom right corner.
  2. Tap on Bluetooth if you haven’t turned it on.

Alternatively, you can follow the below instructions:

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Tap on Bluetooth and toggle on it.

Force Reboot Your iPhone

Sometimes the glitch on your device can also lead to such an issue. If you didn’t see any Quick Start menu, you should force reboot both your devices and check again. Or, if the whole process is stuck in the middle, rebooting will also help to fix it as it will force the device to start fresh in the memory. Therefore, reboot your devices and see if the problem might get solved.

  1. Quickly, Press and release the Volume Up, then quickly, press and release the Volume Down. After that, keep holding the Side button, and your iPhone will turn off.

  2. Once the iPhone turns off, you need to keep holding the Side button until you see the Apple logo appear on the screen.

Update Your Device

Your Quick Start might not work if you are running on the older version of the iOS. To use it, you need at least iOS 12 or higher. For iPad, you should have iPadOS 13.3 or higher. Therefore, you should update both your devices to the latest version to make your Quick Start functional.

Not just that, as previously mentioned, sometimes the device bugs can also mess up your device’s software. So, updating the device will also fix it. 

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Click on General.
  3. Tap on Software Update.
  4. Tap on Download and Install.

  5. Then, your iPhone will ask you to enter the Passcode to confirm.  
  6. Once you confirm it, a new update will start downloading on your device.

Check the Cable

You can also access and use it (to transfer data) via the cable if your wireless data transfer is not working. Or, if you are already using a cable but unable to land on the Quick Start menu, your cable might be damaged, or you may have mis-placed. So, the cable needs to be properly attached to get into the Quick Start menu.

If you want to use Quick Start to transfer data via wired connection, refer to this section below.

Visit Apple Support

If you are still unable to fix the Quick Start not working on your iPhone, you should visit the official Apple tech support. While visiting, make sure to take both of your devices so that they can inspect the cause behind that issue. If the problem is minor, they may not take charge or may take a few charges depending on the issues. 

How to Use (Quick Start) Wired Connection to Transfer Data?

As mentioned above, you can also set up and transfer your data to the new iPhone by using a wired connection. For this method, you need the following things:

  • Lighting to USB 3 Camera Adapter,
  • Lightning to USB cable, and the combination to power the adapter (It’s important because it saves your iPhone battery from dying in the middle of the Transfer). 

Here’re the steps:

  1. Firstly, plug the Lighting to USB 3 camera adapter on your old iPhone/iPad with all your data.
  2. Then, plug the Lighting to USB cable on the adapter (USB) and on your new iPhone (lightning port). 
  3. Now connect the power source to the adapter.
  4. Bring both your Apple devices close together. And swipe up on your new iPhone from the bottom to select the Language menu.
  5. Once you do it, you will see a new pop-up message, something like “Set Up New iPhone” on your old iPhone. 
  6. Tap on Continue.

  11. Once you clear that step, You will see a new window called Transfer Your Data. Tap on Transfer from iPhone.
