    Hi so I have exchanged my iPad and in store I asked to activate it so I dont have to ride back home (100km) to activate it. But since it's already activated when I connect it to iTunes it dosn't give me option to recover all from my old iPad to new one. How can I do that?


    I restored my new iPad to factory settings and connected it to itunes, it worked.

    All your purchased apps can be re loaded via iTunes. Open iTunes with your iPad connected and look to the left hand pane. You will see a "Purchased" entry in red.

    This will allow you to download your apps.

    Playlists and Music should also be retrievable Open iTunes (iPad connected)

    Highlight your iPad in the left hand pane.

    At the top of the window, you will see Apps music photo's etc.

    Tick the box to sync the items you want back on

    Once the sync is completed go back and I suggest you unstick the "Automatically sync" option.

    This will give you more control of what goes on your new iPad.

    I factory reseted it, and then I was able to recover from my last iPad back up, so I have all my music and games in my new one.
    Thanks :)
