    Changing ownership of iPad

    Hi i am happy to be a member of this forum. I am a very dedicated iPad user. As I have replaced mu iPad 1 with iPad 2 3
    G I would like to give it to my sick brother. He is unable to get about and I believe an iPad would change his life. However I hope someone can help. I don't know how to change ownership and registration to him. From Parsley

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Your old iPad can just be fresh restored to as new Factory settings before giving to your brother. This will wipe everything on your iPad for him to start fresh with all his info. You can also do this on the iPad itself Settings - General - Reset - erase all content and settings.
    You may want to transfer everything to your new iPad first and may even want to share apps with him so have a look at this thread. Hope it helps.

    Thank you leelai
    Sounds much easier than I thought. When I reset would my name As the registered owner be deleted.would my brother register his name with Apple as the new owner.

    No there's no need to contact Apple on this if that's what you mean. Your brother would create his own Apple ID for any purchases, unless you intend to share.

    The iPad is no longer under warranty so this would not matter.
