    I replaced my iPad mini with an iPad mini 3. My reading-list, and frequent-visits migrated over to my iPhone 6+, and my new iPad.

    My favorites did not. Everything else did just fine.

    Is there a "trick" I overlooked? :rolleyes:

    Does your "old" iPad mini have iCloud, because if so everything transfers or it did to mine

    It does. Only a few settings did not come over:

    Favorites
    Alerts
    IMessage should be off

    Everything else appears to be as it should.

    Strange! :eek:

    I enabled "Family sharing" and the favorites updated. Problem solved.

    btw: If you drop your device and a taxicab runs it over it, it will most certainly be "toast". When you buy a new one, and do a restore from backup, most things copy over. iMessage gets turned back on automatically. :eek:
