Hello,

Thank you for your question today. My name is ***** ***** I am happy to assist.

Just as you can with an iPhone, you can use iTunes to back up your old iPad, then restore that backup on your new iPad.

  1. Plug your old iPad into your Mac or PC.
  2. Open iTunes.
  3. Click on the iPad icon.

  4. Click Back Up Now under Manually Back Up and Restore. Wait for the backup to complete.
  5. Disconnect your old iPad.
  6. Connect your new iPad to the same Mac or PC that you used to back up your old iPad.
  7. Click the iPad icon in iTunes.

  8. Click Restore from this backup: if it's not already clicked.
  9. Choose the backup you want to use.

  10. Click Continue. iTunes will then restore your iPad from your iTunes backup. This can take awhile.
  11. Tap Continue on your new iPad.

Follow the instructions on your new iPad to finish setting it up.

Please let me know if you have any further questions,or need clarity.

If this helps please rate me 5 stars!

Thanks,
Jamie

What Customers are Saying:

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
