The first thing you have to do after getting a new iPhone, is to make your very own Apple Id by creating apple account. A Sign-Up screen will be automatically shown when you switch on your phone. Here you have to enter your Full Name, Email Address (if required), Desired Password (required if) and some important security questions, so that you get access to your Apple ID, in-case you get stucked while logging in.

If you have previously used iPhone and have already made Apple ID, then you can simply login it again in your new device, and start syncing data from your iCloud.

We recommend you to create Apple ID, because through this you can easily use your phone features completely and can get benefit from it. After signing up you will also get some credentials which will be your iCloud account too. iCloud allows you to easily get back your previously saved data whenever you get a new phone or if your phone gets lost.
Moreover you can also add your credit card information, which will allow you to purchase any important thing from App Store or any online Store.

2: Add Your Bio / Introduce Yourself

One of the best part of iPhone which i like is the Siri, through which one can interact with his phone via his/her own voice. And in-order to address you, Siri have to know your name, mean to say you have to introduce yourself to Siri. For this you can just tap on the Contacts > Signin > Add Info. And enter you desired name and information, so that it can be stored in your phone as the owner.

For exciting stuff to be done by Siri, add all the required things, like your home adress, mom’s name, father’s name, wife name, son’s name, daughter’s name etc. So that Siri will help you whenever you want to contact any of them. Like if you want to call or message your Father, then just say “Call/Message My Father” and you will get the job done.
Similarly if you want to know directions to your home, then Siri will help you there too in finding out the directs and route to your home, but only if you have mentioned your home address in your info settings.
