    My wife has ordered a new iPad, it arrives on Monday. Does anyone know if I can transfer 'contacts' from my iPad to hers? We are both retired and have the same friends etc as in my own contacts.

    Hi, welcome to iPF!

    I guess you both don't intend to share the same Apple ID, which would make things easier.

    You could set up the email account where your contacts are stored on her iPad in Settings - Mails, Contacts, Calendars, but only enable Contacts there. This way she'll have the contacts, but not receive your emails.

    I haven't set up her Apple ID yet! I didn't realise we could share my Apple ID, thanks for your advise, it is much appreciated. I will do as you suggest and also set her up with an iCloud email address. Thanks again.
