Thread: New iPad 4

    Default New iPad 4

    Just got a new iPad Mini 4, can I set it up from a backup I have from my iPad Mini 2? I want to transfer my existing data, photos etc. to my new iPad.

    You should be able to do it from a back up.

    I tend not to do that and rather to set the new one up fresh. That way I only reinstall the Apps I need and lose a lot of the clutter of Apps I have stopped using (they are still under your account in the store if you want to load them at a later date).

    In terms of photo's they should appear under your iCloud account in photo's anyway (a good way to know if that is turned on is to check say your iPhone or Mac and if all photo's are on all devices you are sharing via your iCloud account).

    Enjoy the new iPad Mini!

    Does it matter if the ipads are running different ios versions?
