Questioner General

My son has used out apple id for years and is now going to college. We are upgrading his phone and Mac before he leaves, but he wants to keep info from his current phone. Can we transfer that data (although it is tied to our apple id) and put it on his new phone and then 'set up' his new phone with a new apple id?

Thank you!
