We moved from an Iphone 6 to Iphone 7 but the apps are asking for passwords(Uber, Facebook etc). The guy cannot remember his passwords. Is there a way to transfer everything from the old phone to the new one and keep the login details?

You can't do it, the passwords are encrypted and Apple do it this way to remain secure....

Reset each password manually on their respective website and tell the bloke to get Keepass or something.
