Xperia Companion Backup / Restore , Sony Xperia 10

Is there a solution to backup from Xperia Z5 and restore to a Xperia 10 WITH Xperia Companion?

There is no trouble to take backup from Xperia Z5 but Xperia companion says Xperia 10 is not supported when it comes to backup and restore.

I have the same question, so any thoughts appreciated here too.

 

EDIT: Note to Jonas, FWIW while the transfer function is not available in Companion, you can use the Xperia Transfer app on your Z5 and 10. You can open the app through both devices via Google Play.

 

I tried this myself earlier and was able to transfer all my photos, SMS messages and the like to the new phone and it seems to have done the job.

 

Granted, Sony still needs to resolve the Backup/Restore issues in Companion as for a just released phone to be not supported seems rather odd.
