Upgrading your iPhone? Protect your Dive Log logbook.

Post by support » Wed Sep 19, 2012 2:47 pm

The new iPhone 5's will start to arrive on door steps and in stores shortly and people will be enthusiastically upgrading from an earlier iPhone. There are a few things that you can do before and during your upgrade to make sure that your existing Logbook data from Dive Log (and applications data from most applications) makes the move to your new iPhone. There is an older post on our blog available here that goes into a fair amount of detail about the things you can do to ensure your data is transferred when you upgrade (this was written at the time the iPhone 4S was released but is still relevant for the iPhone 5 upgrades).

The summary is that when you set up your new iPhone you want make sure that you have backed up your previous iPhone via iTunes, iCloud and/or your Dive Log logbook data through one of the available desktop applications that support syncing with Dive Log. When you set up your new iPhone you want to make sure that you either use the "Restore from backup" option in iTunes or if you are using iCloud for backups (vs using the "Set up as a new iPhone" option) or that you restore your logbook data from one of the compatible desktop applications after you reinstall Dive Log on your new iPhone if you do not use the iTunes "Restore from backup option".
