    Hi everyone. I have both my old iPad 2 and iPhone on 8.3 both JB. I bought a new iPad Air 2. The software is version it came with is 8.2. I was really hoping for 8.3. Can I restore the new iPad Air 2 from my old IPad 8.3 backup from iTunes or will I have to update to 8.4? which I don't want.

    Why dont you want to update to 8.4?
    You can still JB it.

    Because the music thing is too complicated. I'm older and it's hard for me to learn new things. So can I restore from my iPad 8.3 backup? I use family sharing and they took it away in 8.4.

    SAMs club must have sent me an old one with 8.2. It is the 64gb cellular model.

    No, cant use a newer backup file to restore to an older ios version.
    Unless you use icloud to restore from backup.

    What do you mean? So when I set it up if I pick iCloud restore from backup it will update it to the 8.3 from 8.2?
