    Forgive me if this is in the wrong forum. I have had iPads forever.

    I bought the iPad pro 10.5 and want to set this up as new.

    All I want on the pro are all my applications. No pictures etc.

    How do I do this? Do I need to disable stuff in iCloud photos etc? Before setting my new iPad up?

    Thanks

    Turn off find my iPad and then hook up to iTunes and restore. Just don't use the restore from backup option.

    I’m not referring to the power, I’m talking about find my iPad which is located in settings/icloud/find my iPad. Disable that settings before you restore the ipad as new. After you have restored the ipad, all your photos and anything you had stored on the cloud will return when you sign back in with your Apple id and turn icloud back on. You don’t have to do anything with your other iPads

    Okay. But if I don't want the photos and previous settings I would leave iCloud and find my iPad off?

    The only thing I want on the new device is apps that I currently own or have purchased.

    Thanks

    During the set up process you can opt to set up as new. When I set up mine I just transferred the main stuff like Contacts, Emails, Note Pad etc. You can chose not to use your backup stuff from iCloud by just syncing from your iPhone settings. Turn on the find my iPad feature.

    You can just turn any feature off on iOS devices. Maybe have one device that you use to save photos to iCloud.

    The restore from backup won't work right away (at least when using iTunes) if the backup is a newer version of iOS than the new iPad. You end up doing as new, then after upgrade restore from backup.
