    How do I sync my Mac and new iPad? I had expected it to happen automatically when I connected my iPad to my Mac. Is it so difficult? It is not intuitive.

    I would appreciate any advice.

    Thank you

    Hello,

    Is the iPad set up for use? Open iTunes, then connect the iPad to the Mac, then down the left column look for your iPad and click on it. Then in the bottom right corner you should see a button that says "Sync". Click that.

    Also, you can set up your iTunes account to automatically sync the iPad each time you connect it to the Mac.
