9to5 Mac publisher Guilherme Rambo has discovered in the iOS 13 beta a new way to transfer data between your old and new iPhone. It seems that data restoration could be done directly between the equipment via cable.
Firstly, this editor has found an icon that shows us an iPhone X or higher, wired to an older model. A very enlightening image, as you can see below.
Secondly, Rambo found a new message to be presented to the user for restoring his data. There it can read "keep the other iPhone connected to this iPhone and plugged in until the transfer is complete,"
IPhone cable data restoration has yet to be explained
These clues imply that with the arrival of iOS 13, it is possible to restore data from one iPhone to another via a cable. Still, we are not sure how this process will work.
Also, connecting one iPhone directly to another by cable is currently impossible. This is true as Apple does not market any cable from Lightning to Lightning.
This could be the ideal excuse for launching a new accessory to the market. This, of course, given that the entry of the new iPhone XI remains Lightning.
On the other hand, if new iPhone arrives with USB-C input then this data transfer may be achieved by some without buying an extra accessory. It's just that Apple is already selling Lightning to USB-C cables right now.
The adoption of a USB-C port on iPhone XI feeds some of the rumors surrounding the next generation of iPhone. In this sense, it would not be surprising if this entry makes its debut in the equipment to be unveiled next September.
Right now, there are two ways to restore data from an old iPhone to a brand new model. One requires downloading and installing a backup through iTunes. The second method makes use of iCloud and the data stored there.
