Returning

I ended up getting a new ipad the other day, it is not for me, so I am going to return it back where I got it from.

I assume all I need to do is General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings, correct? There was hardly anything on the device (I really was not using it, so, one reason it is going back), a couple free apps and some previous purchases from back in the day. Wifi settings and such.

Would this be enough or should I do a restore and or just change my apple ID password as well?

Erasing all content and settings removes the encryption key, that's safe enough .

That should be enough. But, I always do that first, set up the iPad again while skipping the Apple ID part and once you're back the Home screen, do the Erase All Content and Settings again. I do this since one day I noticed my iPad still had my Apple ID on it. It wasn't signed in, but it was there. This may have been fixed with iOS 6 though. Run the erase command and set it up again to double check.

I'd also do a restore just in case.

Thanks all.

Its a really nice device, just want something a bit more portable (I would do the mini, but can't find them and they are still a little wide to fit in the pocket), as its a bit redundant to have a 7" and a 9.7" tablet and laptop and phone at home.
