Transfer your iPad 1 data to iPad 2CNET outlines the very simple process of transferring your iPad data to an iPad 2.
-Hey guys, Eric Franklin here and for those of you looking to transfer data from your current iPad to your brand new and hot iPad 2, you're in luck for 2 reasons. One, you get to look at this mark here for the next few minutes, and two, this is a very simple process which is probably why they chose me to do this one, ha. Alright, anyway, first up, connect your old iPad to your PC or Mac. iTunes should open automatically. But if it doesn't, simply open iTunes. Your iPad may begin to sync with iTunes. However, if it doesn't simply locate your iPad under devices in the left menu window, right click or control click it then chose back up. After a few moments of running through a number of steps, the syncing process will end. You know for sure it's ended when your iPad no longer states sync in progress. Unplug your old and busted iPad and plug in your new hotness. iTunes will then ask you to register your new iPad if you haven't already. Then, iTunes will prompt you to either set up as a new iPad or restore from a back up. Choose restore from a back up and select the back up you just created which should have your iPad's name as well as the time and day in which it was last synced. Click continue. Once the restore process is complete, your iPad 2 will reboot. iTunes should redetect it and will then begin to transfer settings and data to your new iPad. Now, to be absolutely sure you have all your apps, movies, and music, select the iPad in the menu just like before. Now, in the upper nav, check the type of data you want transferred to your new iPad like apps, music, movies, and so on. Then, click apply. Your iPad will sync again. This may take awhile depending on how many apps you have. Just be patient, and once it's done, your new iPad should have all the same data as your old one. You can then throw the old one away and await to repeat this process when the iPad 3 launches. Once again, this is Eric Franklin and I hope you enjoy your new hotness. Once again, this is Eric Franklin and I hope you enjoy your new hotness. No, that is so stupid. Oh my god! -Be yourself. -I can't help but do that, that's the reason. -I know.
