    I currently have two devices, iPhone and iPad. However my old iPad is showing in the backup in icloud, so three. However I can't delete it as it says it is in use. However I no longer need it as I have set my new iPad up from fresh. Any ideas?

    I assume you restored the backup of your old iPad to the new iPad? Check the new iPad to make sure it says restore is complete. If it says it's still restoring, stop it.

    It's deleted now :) I started downloading it then stopped it as I remembered I was suppose to be setting the new iPad up as new to get rid of several problems. Of course the. It was in the middle of restore. I read somewhere else if it's started but didn't complete leave it 48 hours. So I managed to delete it this morning.
