I just got my new phone (a 13 mini) in the mail today. I plan on setting it up on the weekend.
In the past, I always migrated my content via USB. I would use iTunes (now the Finder) to make a backup of the old phone, then restore that backup to the new phone.
Today, Apple has a relatively new mechanism, Quick Start, which claims to be able to move everything directly from one device to the other. Since my old phone is running the latest iOS 12, this is an option for me.
What do you think? Does Quick Start work well? Should I use it or should I just do it the old fashioned way and backup/restore via USB?
I know that I could also use an iCloud backup, but is there any real advantage to using it instead of USB or Quick Start? Especially since I don’t have an iCloud backup, so I would need to create a full backup as a part of this process.
