How to set up iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus:

If you are upgrading from an older iPhone to iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, you need to back up your old iPhone via iTunes or via iCloud. This will help you to keep your apps, important data, and settings to your new iPhone 7.
- Turn on your new iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus
- Choose your language, country or region
- Now connect to Wi-Fi and choose Location Services

To use the Apple pay, you will need to have the Touch ID enabled. Go to Apple’s Wallet app to set the Apple Pay and add one of two credit cards.
