Apple Drops $99 Data Migration Fee for New Macs and Repairs

Adam Engst:

Apple has dropped the $99 fee that it previously charged for migrating data from an old Mac to a newly purchased machine. TidBITS reader and TekBasics consultant David Price wrote to tell us that he has generally advised clients to pay Apple to migrate data to newly purchased Macs, but when he accompanied his brother-in-law to pick up a freshly migrated iMac last week, Apple informed him that there was no charge for the service.

Update (2019-04-10): Thomas Brand:

There was never a charge in 2003. We used to even transfer data from booting Windows PCs.

Apple used to charge a hundred bucks to run the Migration Assistant?
