    Hi
    Just wanted to introduce my self.
    I'm TJay and I just bought a new iPad Air and I'm not understanding how to transfer everything from my old iPad 2 to the new one.
    I turned it on and got to the part where it says start new or restore from iCloud.
    Well,I hit restore from ICloud and addedmy ID and then I can't do anything else.
    Was wondering if the forum could help

    Is your iCloud account the same as your Apple ID?

    If it isn't: you have to enter your iCloud account ID and password, then you'll be able to choose from which backup to restore.

    I've moved your thread to the iPad Help Forum where it will receive more attention.

    I'm not much of a computer. Person so I was wondering if you could tell me how I can figure out what my ICloud acct would be. As far as I know it is the same but is there a place to check on it

    On your iPad 2, if still possible, look at Settings - iCloud. There you'll see your iCloud account / ID.

    Are you able to choose another backup?

    After entering your iCloud/Apple ID, you have to accept terms and conditions of use. In case you skipped that step, it might be possible that you can't choose a backup to restore from.
