[] Mi Mover: Now Transfer Apps With or Without App Data

Hello, Mi Fans!
As someone wisely said once, the true design challenge doesn’t simply end at maintaining minimalism, but it’s about constant enhancement without adding more friction. We, at MIUI, do the later almost every week by expanding the horizon of your choices, to reduce the friction when it comes to choices.

Previous week, Mi Mover - one such solution block of the above-mentioned philosophy, got one more choice. Now, while moving your data from your old to a new phone, you can choose along with the app whether or not you want to move the app data. App data greatly affects the time of transfer, and for some apps you can always get it back by just signing in.

How to enable
  • Go to settings - advanced settings - Mi Mover as usual
  • Choose 'I’m a sender' & scan the QR code on other device
  • Go to the ‘app data’
  • From the list, select the apps for which you want to transfer the app data for

  • By default, app data will be deselected
  • Selecting app data will select the particular app too
  • The feature is currently in Developer ROM only, will come in stable ROM later

Have any thoughtful suggestions? Let us know in comments below!

I just love Mi Drop! It's so efficient to use especially nw that it is open for non-Mi devices. :)
