Part 1. Will TikTok Drafts Transfer to New Phone

Whenever you post something on TikTok, it uploads to the cloud servers of TikTok. Thus, changing your device is not an issue because the videos stay on the cloud server from TikTok. However, the same is not the case with TikTok drafts. Instead of going on the cloud server, the TikTok drafts stay on your phone's storage for as long as you do not upload them.

So, no, the TikTok drafts will not transfer to your new phone automatically unless you save your drafts. You can easily move your drafts from your old phone to your new device by saving them.

So, here are all the steps you need to follow for transferring TikTok drafts to another phone.

After completing the posting process, your TikTok draft video will be uploaded to your profile, but it will only be visible to you because you have set it as private. You need to save that video in your device's storage and then delete it. It is what we will be doing in the next step.
