"invoke quick start" only the actual most important part of this whole video totally not covered. How do you invoke quick start?


does it transfer whatsapp chat backup?


I see so this Migration Tool only works with :
Old iPhone with data migrate to new phone after restore

Not with :
Old iPhone with data migrate to new phone that currently been used and have data inside.


So which end of the adapter do you plug in the host iphone and which to the receiver iPhone? Video wasn’t clear about that one


Dose this worked on iPads?


Migration can be between iphone and iPhone
Or iPad and iPad
But apparently not between
IPhone and iPad


wasn't transferring from my XS Max to Pro Max, just realised the XS Max needed a software update in order to transfer data to new device.If anyone faces any issue, make sure older device has 12.4 IOS atleast thanks for the video!!!! glad it did help


does this work with all photos, video , apps, notes ?


Does it work for the iPhone 6 to the iPhone 11 pro


Would I still be able to do this if I am on a beta ?


does this method transfer photos too?


I am not getting the 'Transfer data window' screen. It only activates phones and not transferring data. Please help me someone. I do not make backup on I cloud.


I just got a question: I got an iPhone 11 pro and im trying to transfers all of my data from my X but the thing is that my Iphone X is on a beta version and when I do the steps for transferring data it won't let me do it so I just want to know if there is a way of of downgrade from the beta to the normal 13.1 iOS without losing my data from my iPhone X?


Does anyone knows if this also works for transferring WhatsApp's conversations to the new iPhone?


Do you folks know how bank applications work with the migration tool? Usually once installed they require activation so I wonder what happens after migration from one iphone to another do they work out of the box or require re-activation?


how do I transfer an I Phone 11 pro video to you Tube


Why it’s not working for me


can u just get to the point. I have anxiety


when should I change sim card? Before or after data migration from old iphone to new?


Wait do you need backup to use the first method?


If an iPhone 7 Plus is on iOS 13.1.1 and an iPhone 11 pro max is on iOS 13.0 or 13.1 m, well this direct transfer still work?
