    Just bought a store display iPad 3 ,from Craigslist ...
    Is there a way to restore it?
    I can't delete anything (apps,photos ,music) that comes as display.
    There is no option in the settings to restore it.

    Any ideas please?...

    Version 5.1.1
    Firmware 1.0.11

    Go to settings - general and then scroll to the bottom and select reset. Erase all contents and settings.

    Hook it up to your computer and open iTunes and one of the options is to restore your iPad. I had the same problem, it wasn't on the iPad it was on the web under iTunes options where you backup and restore your devices!

    I want to say erase all content and settings doesn't do it. iTunes might be the only way.

    Store demo iPads are loaded with special apps that cannot be deleted. It is unusual that the store allowed you to take delivery of the Apple Demo without resetting it. You must connect it to a computer with iTunes and do a total restore. Donot back it up just treat it as a new iPad. Hope that helps.

    Wiping an iPad with no "Reset" button on the iPad itself


    Hook your iPad up to your computer or laptop with iTunes and you will see a reset to factory defaults as one of the options. I had the same problem and found the solution online, I'm not sure why the reset button is not on the iPad itself?!?
