Get Started With Your New iPad

By Serenity Caldwell, Macworld Mar 16, 2012 10:05 pm

Congratulations, you've braved the lines, delivery wait times, or in-store negotiations to snag yourself a brand-new iPad. But before you get to playing with your new device, you'll probably want to set it up. Thanks to iOS's step-by-step activation process, Apple's made it pretty simple to get started; but just in case you need some extra help, we've put together a comprehensive guide for activating your new iPad, transferring data from your computer (or, if you had an iPad previously, from that), and some suggestions for exploring your device's new features.

If you're upgrading from an older iPad

You're moving on up to the latest and greatest in the iOS world, and to do so, you're leaving your old device behind. But before you send it off on its last voyage, you have to decide if you want to transfer its apps, data, and settings to your new iPad. If you do, you'll need to make a backup (via iTunes or, if your old iPad is running iOS 5, via iCloud) of your information.
