I've used iPhones for some years now, but don't have iPad experience. A friend has owned an iPad for several years and has purchased a new one. He asked me to help him move everything from the old one to the new one. It turns out that he's never had iCloud enabled, and he never had the old iPad connected to iTunes. I thought the most straightforward way would be to backup the old iPad in iTunes and then do a restore to the new iPad. Unfortunately, when I connect the old iPad to iTunes it gives only two options: set up as new iPad, or restore from a previous backup. I have no option to go straight to making a backup, and I certainly don't want to set it up as a new iPad and lose what he has on there. I'd appreciate suggestions as to the best way to approach this.
