Problems with restoring ipad 3
New to the iPad. Anyways just a bit confused about how things work I'll try to describe my problem in much detail as I can.
1. When I bought my iPad about 2 months ago I did a backup and sync via iTunes. I seemed to have set a password on the backup and forgot it. Anyways my forum and google searches indicate that essentially I can't recover the backup password, if I need to start over I'll have to do a restore from iTunes and select set up a new device.
2. I did a factory reset of my iPad and all my purchased are in the App Store, happy about that.
I was syncing via iTunes so the apps are there as well. When I connect my iPad to computer iTunes sees it but I can't seem to transfer the apps via iTunes. I select to install and iTunes says will install I click apply or sync nothing happens.
Is there a way to install the apps in iTunes to my reset iPad?
Thanks in advance.
