  • Device to device transfer -- I have not tested this with an iPhone, but for iPad, I did not need ANY extra cables or adapters or anything. The new iPad (regular 8th gen) was not even connected to a power source. The old iPad (an Air from about 6 years ago) was connected to power and was on our home WiFi network. In the middle of the set up, the new iPad offered to transfer all data. All I had to do was bring the new iPad within about 3 feet of the old one and everything started automatically. No cables. No nothing. Very fast. (Faster than setting up cables and transferring from the Mac and faster than iCloud). I wondered if it was using AirDrop or just the WiFi or if that was the same thing. I cannot imagine that Apple would make it so easy for iPad and require all those adapters and stuff for iPhone. Wesley Sasaki-Uemura
