    hi,

    Anybody here knows if there’s a way to merge two iPhones? Say you are coming from using two iPhones and is switching to one like XS Max?

    ^Hmmm what do you actually mean by merging? Or is it syncing? Like syncing data from two iPhones into one iPhone like the XS Max which has two sims?

    Just airdrop your photos. I have not seen any program that can merge two iphones. You just have to manually transfer photos and videos via airdrop. For messages, do you keep messages that long?

    Activate iCloud and get the paid version if you need more space. Sync 1 of the older phones. That should store all your iCloud data (messages, photos, Safari passwords, calendar, app data, Files in iCloud's version of Drive, etc.).

    Once that is done (and make sure it is complete), sync the other phone by signing in to the same iCloud acct. Any local files, photos, etc. saved on that phone will be uploaded to your iCloud acct.

    Once that is done, sync your new phone by signing it up to the same iCloud acct.
