Hi

i just got my new iPhone 11. There was no instructions, so I put the new SIM card in the iPhone 11. I did the sim swap with my old phone (iPhone 8+). And I've been waiting for ages (3 hrs) for-my data to transfer to my iPhone 11. Did I do something wrong?

A sim swap is literally just swapping from one sim to another which isn't necessary going from an 8 to an 11.

Just use your old sim.

To transfer data you either need to tap to allow a direct data transfer when setting up your 11 or backup your 8 to itunes and then restore that backup to the 11.

You can also just login on the 11 and restore from iCloud but that could take a long time if you have a lot of data and only do this over a wifi connection.
