    I'm getting a 7th gen iPad and want to send my bookmarks from my iPad 4 to it. From what I have read on the web the old iPad needs IOS or later and my 4 only went up to 10.3.3 is there a way I can do the transfer?

    Do you use Safari, or a different browser on your iPad?

    Safari bookmarks are synced by iCloud, as soon as you enable it in iCloud on both your devices.

    If you set up your new iPad using a backup from the iPad 4 it should restore the data (including bookmarks) to the new iPad. In general, newer versions of iOS can be restored from older backups. As long as you do not erase/restore the iPad 4, you can try this without risk; since you can always restore the new iPad to factory if it does not work.

    It is also possible that Dolphin has settings to sync or export it’s bookmarks. Dig into them and see what you can find.

    Since the iPad 4 is that far behind, expect the new iPad to do a lot of app updates after the restore. Also, not every app on it may work with the new iPad, so be careful to save important documents of files by means other than the backup, just in case.
