    Recently, after destroying her own iPad, I gave my wife my spare.
    I erased everything on it and restored it from her backup on iTunes.
    But, now she gets my email on it. I checked and it still has my Apple ID.
    Is it possible to change the Apple ID to one of her own?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Hi Melie,
    You do need to sign out of your iCloud on the old iPad and turn off Find my iPad. Your wife should be able to set up her own iCloud account quite easily

    Was she using her own Apple ID on her old iPad? If so, restore the iPad again, setting it up from her backup. Do not at any time enter your Apple ID and password during the restore process beyond using it to authorize the erasure of the iPad. When the erasure is complete, have her enter her Apple ID and password whenever prompted during the restore and setup. As long as she was using her own Apple ID and password on her old iPad, this should ensure that your account is nowhere on the old iPad.

    The following might help if she needs to create an Apple ID :
    Tap the Settings app from your device's home screen.
    Tap "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" from within the Settings app.
    Tap "Add Account".
    Tap "iCloud".
    Tap the "Create a new Apple ID" button. ...
    Enter your date of birth.
    Tap the "Next" button in the top right corner.
    Enter your first and last name.
