    Default How to restore iPad from an iCloud backup

    Restoring iPad from an iCloud backup

    Step by Step guide to restore an iPad( iPad 1st Gen, iPad 2 or iPad 3)

    TroubleShooting Steps
    For the smoothest experience and longest battery life, we always recommend setting your new iPad up as new (see above). If you have an old iPad or other iOS device, and need access to your old data quickly, or dread the idea of starting from scratch again, you have the option of simply restoring your new iPad from a backup of your old device.

    1. Choose restore from iCloud backup.

    2.Enter your Apple ID to login. (Enter your full email address as the username.) Tap the blue Next button to continue. (If you change your mind, you can logout of iCloud, or login under a different account later.)

    3. Agree to the terms and conditions of service by tapping the blue Agree button on the bottom left.

    4. Confirm your agreement by tapping the Agree button.

    5. Choose your backup*. You'll see your Latest iPad Backup listed, and this is usually the one you want to choose. You'll also see older backups, if available, and if no iPad backup is available, backups of your other iOS devices on the same iCloud account.

    A progress bar will show you an approximation of how long it will take to download your backup. Once it's done, your iPad will reboot.
    Once your iPad reboots, you'll be asked to re-enter all your passwords (as a security measure, iCloud will not restore passwords).
    Once that's done, your iPad will start re-downloading all your apps. If iTunes in the Cloud is available in your country, it will also re-download iTunes music, movies, TV shows, and iBooks. will restart, all your settings nicely back where you left them, and iTunes will begin to re-download all the apps you had installed when the backup was made.
    You will need to stay on Wi-Fi for any file larger than 50MB to re-download.

    You restore from iCloud from the setup screen before you even get to the Home screen. If you need to restore from an iCloud backup on a device that is already setup, you need to go to Settings>General>Reset>Erase All Content and Settings. This will bring you back to the setup screen you see when you first power on the device. As you go through that setup, you will be prompted to restore from iTunes or restore from iCloud.
