    Hi,
    Both my boyfriend and I have iPads, and he backs his up to iCloud on the laptop, I hadn't done this until tonight. Anyway, I plugged mine in tonight and the computer recognised my iPad as my boyfriend's, I didn't realise until the computer had synced my iPad with my boyfriend's, meaning I then had all his boring football apps etc on my computer. I sorted all of this manually, but when I tried to link up my iPad with the laptop again, it still thinks my iPad is my boyfriends. How can I get the laptop to recognise my iPad as a new, different one?

    Sign out of the AppleId in iTunes, and sign in with your own. You'll find the setting under Store.
