    Just wondering if you are going to transfer your entire old iPad contents to your new iPad3? I plan on mirroring both my iPad2 and iPad3 so they both have the same content.. Anyone else gonna do this??

    I'm not upgrading, but if I were this is exactly what I'd do, and I suspect many others will too.

    While I am not going to mirror the two devices, per se (my sister is getting the iPad1), I am going to initialize the new iPad with the backup from the iPad1. I figure that if what I have on the iPad1 works for me for the past [almost] two years, why change now?

    Plus, it'll save a lot of searching and clicking in iTunes. Don't want to "waste" time loading it up - I want to USE it! :D

    Not going to mirror .... I want them to be different so that each has it's specific purpose. The 3rd gen will be for apps and movies that will really benefit from the retina display.

    This is the reason I am asking....I am going to let my wife and kids fight over my iPad 2 but I want all the content of my iPad2 on my new iPad with out all the hassle. I was wondering if there is a more clever way than to backup my old iPad and restore the new iPad with the backup instead of setting it up as a new iPad??

    I honestly only know of the two ways - (1) set up as new and put your apps on it by onsies and twosies, or (2) put an "old" backup on it.

    Putting my recent back up from my iPad on my new 3rd generation iPad. I already deleted some apps but like how it's all organized. All my documents are in good redy and saved to iCloud so they are safe and sound!

    Yes. Then I'm going to take the original iPad and put back factory settings and give it to my husband. I am the tech geek.. I just bought him his first iPhone and he's finally texting.. iPad is next
