Content Migration Between Devices

If you buy a new iPad/iPhone, you would like to transfer content from old device to new device.

Here is the method:

  • Update Collections app in both old and new device to the latest version
  • Plug old device into PC / Mac
  • Use iTunes to connect to old device
  • Go to File Sharing, and select Collections
  • Copy all the folders and files from old device to desktop
  • On desktop, change all folders' name by adding suffix ".pkg", e.g. XXX to XXX.pkg (icon will be changed to package)
  • Unplug old device from PC / Mac and plug new device into PC / Mac
  • Use iTunes to connect to new device
  • Go to File Sharing, and select Collections
  • Copy all the folders and files from new device if you need to backup
  • Delete all the folders and files from new device
  • Copy all the folders and files from desktop into new device
  • On iTunes, change all folders' name by removing suffix ".pkg", e.g. XXX.pkg to XXX (icon will be changed to folder)
  • Unplug new device from PC / Mac
  • Finally, launch Collections app in new device
