    She got herself an iPhone 5C a few months ago, so thought it would be nice to get her an iPad Air

    Now she's completely useless with gadgets and such so I set the iPhone up for her, no problem and I was going to open up the iPad now and set it all up for her with her Apple ID and everything so when she opens it, its all set up for her but I remember when I set up the iPhone, I got emails saying "an iPhone has been registered with this apple ID/email address" - whatever the phase it

    So when I register the iPad here, obviously I don't want her to get an email on her phone saying, an iPad has been registered because it will spoil the surprise

    So is there a way I can (temporarily) disable these emails to her, so it doesn't spoil her surprise?

    Thanks :apple:

    i don't think this is possible. sorry

    the only thing that comes to mind is to be sneaky and delete her email
    when your at her house


    maybe restore the iPad from her iPhone backup on itunes when she is not looking
