How to Set Up Your Shiny New iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus

Hey, you got a new phone! Not just any phone, but one that compels otherwise sane people to wait outside in line for hours, dayssometimes weeks.

Whatever you did to get that new iPhone, it will be all for nothing if you don’t set it up correctly. Below is a guide to prepping your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, for both first-time owners and i-device veterans.

1. It’s aliiive.
After you’ve gone through whatever detailed unpacking ritual you’re into, you’ll need to turn on the phone. In previous models, that would require you to press a button on the top right, but both iPhone 6 phones now sport that button on their upper-right sides. Hold it until the screen lights up and you see the Apple symbol.

2. The basics.
You’ll be greeted by iOS’s dry but helpful Setup Assistant. It’ll ask you to choose a language, connect to a WiFi network, and sign in to iCloud. If you do not already have an iCloud account, you’ll have to create one. Sorry, but there’s no convenient way around this.

Speaking of iCloud, Apple is upgrading to a new storage system it calls iCloud Drive. It’s supposedly going to be much better, but it’s not ready yet. If given a choice, I’d refrain from upgrading for now.

Why isn’t it working yet? Apple has engineered iCloud Drive to be compatible with only the most updated software on all your devices. That means iOS 8 on your mobile devices and OS X Yosemite on your Mac.
