iMazing's Transfer to another Device feature is a simple way to move data from one device to another, just like when restoring a backup, but with the added bonuses of being able to do it all in one go, and of customizing which content is transferred.
This is particularly useful in the following scenarios:
Download and install iMazing on your Mac or PC computer
To transfer data from an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to another devce:
💡 Tip: Once the transfer has started, you can safely click Close Window to minimize the wizard and return to iMazing's interface.
⚠ Important: If after the device reboots, the iOS Setup Assistant fails at the Apple ID Sign In step (error message 'Could not sign in. A server problem is blocking Apple ID sign in. Try again later.'), don't panic!

The transfer options allow you to customize what data and apps you want to transfer.
💡 Tip: If you are transferring your device to another device which has already some data on it, we advise to check the option Erase target device(s). This will prevent potential conflicts with the Apple ID already configured on your target device.
💡 Apps Tip: If you have downloaded some of your apps with iMazing, you'll have the option to install apps from your app library when transferring your data. This can be a life saver as you'll be sure that you don't have to wait for apps to be downloaded by iOS after the transfer completes, downloads which can take a very long time.

Select what datasets you want to transfer. Use the Select All checkbox to select or deselect all datasets. The following must be transferred.
|Accounts:||Accounts are all email, contacts, calendars and other cloud service configured on your device.|
|Other Data and Preferences:||Other data and preferences are all settings, system files etc so basically all the data not related to a dataset in particular.|
Choose what apps you want to transfer. Use the Select All checkbox to select or deselect all apps.
