Hello and thank you for your question today. My name is Jason. I look forward to helping you today.


Within iTunes, you can right click the old iPad within iTunes and choose "Transfer Purchases".

- Plug the old iPad into the computer
- Open iTunes
- Right click the iPad and choose Transfer Purchase.

The applications will now be in your library and can be synced with the new one.

Another option is that when you plug in the new iPad, you can choose to restore it from the old iPad's backup.

Right clicking does nothing. How do I find the backup file to the old iPad?

Expert:  Jason replied 11 months ago.

Under devices, right click or Control click the iPad and choose backup or restore.

The actual backups are located in the following folder: ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/

Customer: replied 11 months ago.

Sorry, I am not following you. I don't find the iPad under devices in my finder and I don't know how to find the folder.

Expert:  Jason replied 11 months ago.
You will not find it in the Finder. You will find it in iTunes.

You are right clicking it in iTunes.

So, open iTunes, and right click the iPad within the iTunes window.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.

Yes, I have been seeing it in iTunes and right clicking on it but nothing happens.

Thank you for the update.

May I please, start a remote screen sharing session with you so that I can better help you resolve this problem? No extra charge.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.

I don't know what that is and I am too tired to continue. Can I contact you tomorrow?

Expert:  Jason replied 11 months ago.
You sure can Michael.

When you are ready to continue tomorrow, please, post a message here.

Thank you,
Jason

Sorry, but this is too difficult. It's just not working, I'm too old to deal with it. I will be a way for a week and will try again. The old iPad will be fine. Charge me the fee if appropriate, You did what you could to help me.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
