Do you back up your old iPad to iCloud?

Mac Support Specialist: John T. F., Apple Consultant replied 4 months ago

Do you still have space in iCloud? I recommend creating a current back up so you can use it on the new iPad.

On the old iPad make sure you Backup:

tap Settings > [your user name] > iCloud > iCloud Backup (OR Settings > iCloud) to turn "Backup" to ON

Back up manually to iCloud over Wi-Fi by choosing "Back Up Now" from that same screen.

When the back up has completed, you can the restore it on the new iPad.

On the new iPad:

tap Settings

tap General

tap Reset

then tap “Erase all content and settings”

When the device restarts, it will display the Setup Assistant. In the Setup Assistant, sign in to iCloud, tap “Restore from a Backup,” then choose from a list of your backups in iCloud.

Your device is restored as follows: Your settings and accounts are restored from the iCloud backup you chose. Your device restarts and begins downloading your purchased music, movies, TV shows, apps, books, Camera Roll, and other content.

You may be asked to enter passwords for iTunes, App Store, and iBookstore accounts to restore purchased items. If your device can’t download the version of an app that was backed up, it downloads the latest version.

Progress bars appear below Home screen icons for apps being downloaded. To make an app a priority for downloading, tap its icon.

To check if the information on your device is fully restored, go to Settings > [your user name] > iCloud > iCloud Backup

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
