Set up your iPhone or iPad Turn on your iPhone or iPad. Choose the size of your phone's text and icons. Use the quick start or set it up manually. Set it up for yourself or for a child.
Restore or transfer your data and applications. Sign in with your Apple ID or other Apple device. Select your Wi-Fi network if you're within range of one. If your iPhone has a SIM card, this is the time when it should successfully connect to your mobile network.
The new iPhone 14 line only uses eSIM and, depending on the operator, your phone may ask you to activate the eSIM. I had to talk to Mint customer service because eSIM activation was turned off in the Mint Mobile app, but they sent me an activation email within 24 hours. With a backup of your old iPhone, it's easy to set up your new iPhone so that everything stays exactly as you're used to. Setting up Face ID involves letting your iPhone use its TrueDepth camera mechanism in the iPhone's dynamic notch or island to learn your facial features.
