I bought my wife an iPad for Christmas and would like to have it set up as much as possible before Christmas but not have her know. I have her current iPad backed up to the cloud as well as her laptop. I do have the account information for her Apple account. I know that eventually in the setup process you are prompted to sign into your Apple account and you eventually receive a message that a new device is now using your account. I also know that a code will be sent to her phone to allow the iPad to connect to her account. I'm trying to figure out how far I can get into the setup process before she starts to get messages. I should be able to restore from the backup on her laptop to get apps/etc loaded. How far can I get into the setup process before I ruin the surprise? We are leaving for a trip on Christmas day and I want her to have the new iPad for the trip and all ready to go. Thanks!!
