Apple’s Migration Assistant tool that’s baked into macOS has long been an easy way to transfer your data from an old Mac or PC to a new Mac. Migration Assistant can be done a number of ways as we’ve listed below (you can read more in-depth about them here).
- Via wired or wireless network
- A FireWire or Thunderbolt cable between the two computers
- From a Time Machine backup
- From a startup drive that can be mounted on your new Mac
As 9to5Mac points out, the already useful Migration Assistant tool is now set to receive a facelift in macOS Mojave that will make switching from a PC even easier.
Among some of the new features spotted in the Mojave beta:
- Transferring data from third-party apps such as Outlook
- Migration accounts, documents, email, contacts, and calendars
It should be noted that things could change in the final release of Mojave come September. And with the transferring of data, caution should be used with beta versions. In fact, maybe consider not doing it at all in beta…
