Transferring game data to a new iPhone withot losing your progress is possible and relatively straightforward. The method you’ll use to transfer game data depends on how the data is stored, as games that store their data locally will require a different process than those which store their data in the cloud.

For games that store their data locally, you’ll need to create an iCloud or iTunes backup of your old iPhone, then restore the backup to your new iPhone. To do this, first make sure iCloud Backup is enabled on your old device by going to Settings > Your Name > iCloud > iCloud Backup.

Once this process has finished, go through the setup steps on your new device unil you reach the ‘Apps & Data’ screen. Select ‘Restore from iCloud Backup’ here and sign into your Apple ID account before selecting the most recent backup from the list of available backups.

For games that store their data in the cloud (e.g., Clash of Clans), you won’t need to create a backup beforehand and can simply log into your game account on your new device after signing into it with your Apple ID account during setup. To make sure all of your progress is transferred over correctly from one device to another, you should always use the same Apple ID account when switching devices.
