I’m opening the help file today, specifically for anyone who’s just bought or about to buy a new iPad and is wondering how to get all their music, photos, movies and Apps from one to the other.
It may sound complicated, however Apple has actually made the process of moving content between any of their devices quite simple.
On your old ipad, jump into the settings menu, select iCloud and tap ‘storage and backup’ then you can initiale a manual icloud backup. Now turn on the new iPad and on the setup screen select “restore from iCloud backup”.
It really is that simple. You can see full instructions at http://osxdaily.com/2012/03/16/transfer-old-ipad-to-new-ipad/
