I rather recently got a new phone, and it has all of the same information as my old iPhone. However, I had to completely start over on terraria because I can't get my world on my new phone. Keep in mind that on my old phone (which doesn't work), I didn't have the world on cloud save. I have Game Center set up and everything. Is there a way to recover this world?

There are no ways to recover your world, unless it was on cloud save, or the old device is working.

If it was on cloud save:

Just download back your save.

If the old device is working:

Switch the save to a cloud save, or move the files of your save through a file management tool like iFunbox or iExplorer etc.

If you are on Android, the data directory is data/data/com.and.games505.Terraria/files or data/data/com.and.games505.TerrariaPaid/files

You'll need a root capable file explorer (and have your phone rooted) on both your devices in order to be able to access it.

If you have a backup of the old device:

Install that backup to a device (don't forget to backup that device first!), move the save files out of the device using a file management tool like iFunbox or iExplorer etc., then install the backup of the device you took before installing the backup, and move the save files back in.
