    Can anyone tell me if there is a way to sync all the apps (free) and settings, such as email accounts, from one iPad to another?

    I need to get a new iPad set up the same way as an existing one, and this would be a huge time saver.

    Thanks!

    1. Sync the first iPad to iTunes.
    2. Plug in the 2nd iPad
    3. Right click on the iPad and select Restore from Backup, then choose the 1st iPad's backup.

    this will copy all the apps/settings/music/movies/books to the 2nd iPad.

    Wow, is it really that simple? I'll give this a shot. Thanks!

    Okay, so I just found out the first iPad is an original, not an iPad 2, but the second one is and iPad 2.

    Does that matter? :confused:
