Apple introduced a new data migration feature for iPhone users through the iOS 12.4 system update released yesterday, which makes it easier for users to complete data migration more quickly when they buy a new iPhone. As for how the new features work, let's follow the Macrumors website to find out.
If you have just bought a iPhone, you just need to turn it on and put it with your existing iPhone, the old iPhone will automatically pop up the "set new iPhone" window. But only if the operating system version of both phones is required after iOS 12.4 and later.
After clicking the Continue button, a dynamic two-dimensional code will appear on the new iPhone, while a viewfinder box will appear on the old one, which can be connected by a single shot.
The user will then be prompted on the new iPhone for the unlock password for the old iPhone, which will also be used as the password for the new iPhone.
After a few minutes of activation, the new iPhone will prompt the user to set a touch ID or face ID for the new iPhone, which can be executed step by step.
After the setup is completed, a new migration data interface will appear on the new iPhone, adding the option of "wireless transmission from the iPhone". Of course, you can also choose to download from iCloud backup.
It is worth mentioning that, in addition to wireless transmission on two computers, the new iPhone migration function also allows users to wired transmission over data cables. But you need a lightning to USB 3 camera converter and a lightning to USB connection.
Once you're ready, you can migrate data, and how much data you already have on your old iPhone will determine the time it takes to migrate.
After the migration, the new iPhone will also download and install the existing apps on the old one through the App Store, but everything will be done automatically.
That's it. It's that simple.
