Assuming you have both phones, install Authenticator on the new phone then use the export accounts function in Authenticator on the old phone to generate a QR code that you scan with the import accounts function in Authenticator on the new phone. If you have many accounts, it might generate 2 or 3 QR codes. This is for Android, apologies if the Authenticator app on Apple is different.

I just checked and in the Google Authenticator app on Apple there is (unfortunately) NO export accounts function. If there was then it would be easy.

All you need to have is iTunes in your PC or laptop and backup your phone and any new iPhone after you can restore all your data. pictures and contacts using iTunes. good luck and stay safe.

I was just replying to an Android User who said the Google Authenticator App on Android has an export function, and I checked and the App on iOS doesn't have that.

 

The Google Authenticator App (on iOS) is good but absolutely LACKS some needed features.

Some features are available via the web as iOS has a different security model. So it is unlikely that a security app will function in exactly the same way on both platforms.

Be aware for banking apps. After a phone switch/change they do not work anymore and you have to go to your bank in person with new phone for authentification.
