How to evacuate Suica from old terminal
If you want to take over suica that you’re using on your old device to a new device, remove the Suica from your Wallet. It may be a little scary to ask if you delete it, but the card information is stored in the cloud, so it’s okay.

Open the new iPhone ‘Settings’ and tap the name → The device in use will be displayed, so select your old iPhone
Scroll down and tap “Delete All Cards” → Tap “Delete”
Now you can take Suica over to your new device

Open wallet and tap “+” → “Continue”
Select “Suica” in card type → Tap “Next” when suica that you just deleted appears
Registration complete. Suica is now available on the new iPhone
Points to watch out for when you take over Suica
If you take suica over to a new device, the Suica ID number may change. This is suica’s unique number set for Apple Pay, a 17-digit alphanumeric character starting with JE30F.
If you are using a service using this number, you will need to re-register the new Suica ID number. In addition to the Express Reservation Cooperation Service and JR services such as Smart EX, please be careful when using Suica as a entry/exit key or key.
In addition, even if you have registered suica of the iPhone in the point service “JRE POINT”, points will not be added when the number changes. Check the Suica ID number you are registering.
To find the ID number of suica registered in wallet, use the “Suica” app in JR East. You can check the number by opening the card information screen.
