Need to replace your iPhone at an Apple Store? Forget to back up to iCloud or tether to your home device? Apple is apparently testing a wireless content transfer service/device.
Here’s an example, thanks to 9to5mac:
: A user brings in their iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch to the Genius Bar to be swapped for a fully working unit. The person didn’t back up their device. Now, instead of having to conduct an iCloud wireless backup or go home for a tethered iTunes backup, the Genius Bar will have the ability to mirror an iCloud backup, but onto a local store server. After the device is swapped, the Genius can pull the content right back from the server onto the new device. The content is then automatically wiped from the store server.
Not a major service that I’d use, but a daily Apple hubs like Grand Central Station I could see the major use!
