New iPhone Data Migration Utility For Wireless Data Transfer:

A new iPhone migration utility cuts unnecessary steps in the data transfer process. The Utility makes use of iCloud restore feature to shorten the time required for settings up a new iPhone.

It automatically moves all existing data, including folders, files, accounts, pictures, clips, and passwords. All this without the need to start afresh.

The new migration utility works to copy the data over-the-air when you place both the new and old iPhones nearby each other. This method works for iOS 12.4 or later iPad and iPadOS devices, too.
