How to transfer your data to your new iPad using iTunes

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.
