How to Transfer Data from Old Mac to a New One
  • Migration assistant is a fabulous tool that has
    made it easy to transfers your contacts, email
    accounts, calendars, and more from a personal
    computer or laptop. You can migrate your data to
    the appropriate places on your Mac. Migration of
    data through Migration Assistant will make it
    easy for you to start working even on your new
    Mac without missing any vital information. You
    can connect your devices through FireWire,
    Thunderbolt, or even with the same Wi-Fi network
    in the unavailability of the required cable.
    Before migrating data to your new Mac, you need
    to prepare your system for a smooth migration.

Steps to make data migration smoother

    to date.

    Preferences and then on Sharing.
  • Entering a name in the Computer Name field is
