Windows Migration Upgrade Spotted in macOS Mojave Beta

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).

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…

See what else is new in the beta version of Mojave here.

  • Do you know what kind of information can be transferred from a Windows PC?

    • Basically, any ‘normal’ data found within a user profile: Documents, music, video, photos, downloads. Any Windows-specific stuff, e.g., contents of %APPDATA%, will not be migrated as they are of no use to macOS. Applications such as Dropbox that are x-platform will unfortunately not have their settings migrated from Windows.
