Re: Question about setting up a new ipad

Jim Stutsman

Apple has allowed for this, but it’s not at all obvious. When you get the new iPad set it up with the Apple ID you want to use for iCloud. Then open Settings and tap the icon at the top with your picture. On that page tap iTunes and App Store. There you can enter the Apple ID for your apps. That will allow the apps you purchased from that ID to be used. For files and data you will need to restore the backup that I hope you made of the old iPad. Do that before you set up the new one, and you’ll have the option to restore from the old one when you set up the new one.
