    Anyone go through the process of backing up for refurbished iPad 2? My battery is near extinction. Takes longer to charge than it lasts before next charge. I'm backed up under normal process done automatically, but does that get everything. Then is there a specific procedure for restoring my data to the new iPad? I recognize I will probably need to reset most settings and I'll try to print them out before sending in the original for replacement.

    If you have access to a computer, you can back up your iPad to iTunes on the computer. This will store a complete record of everything that's on your iPad. When you receive the new iPad you can set it up from the backup you made. The new iPad will have all the content and data that was on the old iPad. Backing up and restoring through iTunes is generally much faster than doing an iCloud backup and restore.

    BTW, your settings are part of the backup and don't have to be recorded and re-entered manually after a restore.

    Also when you make the backup with iTunes, if you select the encrypt backup option, the backup will include all app passwords, and other sensitive data. The end result is when you restore your iPad with an encrypted backup, it will be exactly as it was when the backup was made.

    Replacing the Battery shouldn't have any affect on the iPad's data unless the logic board is damaged in the process. If done properly, your iPad will be exactly as you left it before the repair.
