At one time or another, you’re going to need to transfer data from one phone to another. Maybe you’re switching phones because you got a shiny new one, or because your old device went kaput.

Whatever the reason, you don’t want to leave your messages, contacts, photos, and other stuff behind. But you also don’t want to deal with the headache of using iTunes to precisely target the keepers.

The federal government has awarded Apple a patent for iPhone users to transfer data by bumping together handsets.

If this sounds familiar, it is because bump transfers for both iOS and Android have been possible through apps, most notably an app called Bump that debuted in 2008.
