Hi!

For hours I've unsuccessfully been trying to transfer all my data from my iphone 12 mini to my new Pixel 6 Pro using the new fonctionality from Android 12.

I'm using the usb-c to lightning cable given with the iphone, but it just doesn't work. I mean, my Pixel sees it, it begins to prepare the transfer but then stays stuck at the "calculating the time remaining" step. I tried with another cable, I tried with debugging activated and I even installed Android 13 with hope it was just a bug, but nothing changed.

Do you have any ideas why I can't make the trasnfer? Do you think using iOS 16 beta can be the cause?

Thank you for your help ;)

It's certainly possible that's the culprit. It's common that manufacturers don't officially support other manufacturers' beta products - they wait until it's out of beta, and it's final. Otherwise, the fixes to their products become a constantly moving target as newer beta versions come out.

That's what I think too. I'll downgrade to test if it works. Again some risky steps to come...

Edit : Ok, I confirm, it was an issue with iOS 16. Downgrading to iOS 15 was the solution. Thank you! ;)

Yeah, you can do it quite easily with iTunes, but you have to edit a file (Info.plist) in the backup folder you made before the downgrade so that iTunes won't see it as a backup from a newer version of iOS (it's impossible to use a newer backup without this edit).

So now everything is working fine.

Awesome! I'm frankly surprised it was that "easy". I'm glad you found the solution.

    Let us know how it goes. I had no idea Apple lets users downgrade iOS versions, at least on Betas.
    yeah you can, you just press a key(shift or ctrl, I forget which) and click restore in iTunes and select the IPSW file you want to install.
