    Hi there!
    If I had a British Pound for every alert I have received from 'Johhny Apple' since I signed up to this forum, I'd be able to
    afford a new iPad mini...64GB!! Hopefully they will stop now I have posted something :eek:
    If I back up my iPad 2 to iCloud, when I receive my iPad 4 on Friday and set it up, will it become an exact clone of my current iPad, with all apps in same places and on same pages? Or will they be all muddled up?
    I want to be sure I set enough time aside in the day to set it up;)
    Thanks
    BTW just discovered that I can turn this app's notification off:rolleyes:

    Hi there and welcome.

    Personally I do all hardware upgrades using iTunes on my Mac but it should be no different if you do it using iCloud. If you are going to an Apple Store to get your new iPad then they will set it up for you from iCloud.

    There is lots of good advice and info on here plus plenty of members all too willing to help with any problems.

    Remember, search is your friend. If you can't find the answer you need and you post a question then give as much info as you can to help members help you i.e. iPad 1 or 2, iOS version and name of app if the problem is with a specific app........and please don't forget to read the rules http://www.ipadforums.net/forum-rules-help-info/2119-forum-rules-everybody-please-read.html

    These are the hacking section rules for all you jail breakers (and would be jail breakers) http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/2892-hacking-section-rules-please-read.html

    We also have an app for this forum. The link to download the app is: Discussion Forum for iPad Users for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

    You can download the manual for your iPad here http://support.apple.com/manuals/ and in iBooks search for "iPad user guide for" and you will find free comprehensive manuals for both iOS 4 and 5.

    If you have other Apple products or are interested in other Apple kit then why not join our sister forum too at http://www.appleforums.net/

    Hi and thanks - long story, but when I set up the iPad 3 last week using iTunes on my HP laptop (windows 7) all the apps were on different pages and I had lost the folders and the wallpapers. After hours of setting up the new iPad just right (OCD!) I discovered light bleed and had to sent the iPad back. New iPad 4 being delivered on Friday and so I was wondering if it was going to take as long to reorganise all the apps on to the correct pages or if, by using iCloud instead of the computer, I would get an exact replica of my iPad 2. Such a girlie thing!!

    Well if I were you I'd try the set up from iCloud, if it doesn't work then you can restore and try with your laptop......that gives you two chances for a perfect transfer.
