Device to device wired data transfer found in beta code
(Maybe audio and midi one day?)
The latest iOS 13 developer beta includes code and an image that suggests Apple plans to add a new setup feature that will allow individuals to directly transfer data from their old iPhone to a new one using a wired connection. Currently, iOS users have two options when migrating their data to a new iOS device: they can either pull a backup from their computer or wireless transfer their data using iCloud. The code snippet discovered by 9to5Mac includes the image seen below and a prompt that asks the user to “keep your other iPhone connected to this iPhone and connected to the power until the transfer is complete.” Interestingly, it appears iPhone owners will need an inductive charging mat to take advantage of this feature, as it’s impossible to charge an iPhone using a wired connection when it’s connected to another device.
