    Hi Guys -

    I have an iPad 1. Thinking of replacing with an iPad 3. Does that mean I have to re-purchase all of the Apps or is there some way I can load the iPad 3 from iTunes?

    You can do a backup of your ipad via itunes. Simply plug your ipad into your computer and select your ipad via the left hand side of itunes. Then on the main screen, select "backup" and you're good to go. Keep in mind it might take a few hours if you have a lot of content on your ipad.

    And no, you will not have to repurchase all your apps. Once you buy an app you have it for life

    Thanks. I backup my iPad 1 regularly but I assume that backup is associated with the Serial Number of my iPad 1 so the question is will iTunes load those Apps to a new iPad 3

    Yes. It has nothing to do with your ipad serial number. Its all account based :)
