Ordered 6/8 and it is frustratingly delayed beyond their control with a pending delivery date. Anyway I am gifting my current 9.7" iPad Pro to my grandaughter. I will see her Sunday and since she lives an hour away, I think I will go ahead and give her the 9.7" then. Freaking over that! I will make a backup and Erase All Content before giving since she has her own Apple ID. So in setting up my new 12.9", can I do this from the backup I make or does wiping the 9.7" eliminate the possibility if setting up a new ipad from your old one. Or am I forced to set it up as new? Hey, this is all I can do, plan and worry since the 12.9" is stuck in Taiwan, LOL!
