Steps on how you can transfer data from your old iPhone to the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
First of all, you will need to get the latest version of iTunes on your computer, regardless if it runs on Windows or Mac (just be sure you download the right version).

You will pick “This computer” to make the backups on your computer and check “encrypt backup” to secure your data. After that, click “backup now” and wait for the process to complete. After that, just tap “done” and you took the first step in this process, which is saving your data.
After that, open your new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus and you will notice a “Set Up iPhone” message. When you get it, tap on restore from iTunes backup and after that you will have to connect your new iPhone 6 to the computer. Connect the new iPhone to your PC and it will automatically connect to your iTunes application. After it connects to iTunes, it will ask you if you want to restore the old backup or make a new one. You will have to select restore the old backup and then continue with the next steps. Just make sure you use the right backup data and not an old backup data that was made a few months ago.
Then restoration process will take quite a while, depending on how much data iTunes have to transfer on your new iPhone device. After the restoration process is finished, you will notice that all the data was transferred to your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus and you can start using your new iPhone without any problems.
