So, if you have new Macbook and you want to keep your files secure and with you in your new Macbook then APPLE makes it possible for you. This can be easily achieved by the migration assistant tools.

Make sure that your device on connected to the AC power. Now, for connecting the devices, you have to make sure that they are close to each other having their wi-fi on, if you connect them through wi-fi. If any of your Macs are using OS X El Capitan or something earlier then you have to connect them on the same network with the help of Ethernet or wi-fi.

With the help of target disk mode by cable or adaptor, you can easily connect both of the devices. Target disk mode is a very helpful way to move files. If display is not working then also you can connect them by USB-C, Thunderbolt 2, Thunderbolt 3, or FireWire. Now the next option is to connect the new Mac with the time machine for the backup purpose. At this point, you need the migration assistant; for this, in your new Mac, go to the apps folder < check utilities folder < open migration assistant.
