ICloud or ITunes to back up a new Ipad

I get a new IPad Pro this Thursday. What is the best way to save, using ICloud or Itunes. I want to backup contacts, bookmarks, photographis and all the rest of my old IPad.

You can do both.

Personally, I'm using local iTunes backups.

  • Why my new ipad sync even when I gave her?

    I already have several devices allowed to my iTunes account. Have a new ipad for work and I can't seem to synchronize. I followed the instructions so that it has authorized, but he repeats to me that this ipad is is no longer allowed for items bought on ipad?

    I have apps from my existing account that I need for work. I checked the settings on the ipad, but there seems to be no restrictions.

    I hope someone can help.

    Thank you


    Hello PCNumpty,

    You may need to check with the COMPUTER administrator at your workplace to determine if restrictions have been added to the iPad that has been given to you and to what Apple ID has been used to implement.  The resources below explain how Apple ID in iTunes are allowed, and how devices iOS are associated with Apple ID.

    View and delete devices in iTunes

    On the devices associated with

    When you use some features of the iTunes Store on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or computer, your computer or iOS device is automatically associated to your Apple ID in iTunes account settings. These features include:

    You can have 10 devices (up to 5 computers) associated to your identifier Apple and iTunes at the same time. Computers and devices can be associated with another Apple ID once every 90 days. Each computer must also be allowed to use the same identifier Apple. You don't need to authorize your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

    You don't need to combine your devices to buy content, download new purchases or to play the content that you have stored for offline listening.

    You can not see all your computers or devices listed on the account information page in iTunes. Your iTunes account information lists only the computers and devices that you have associated with your Apple ID using one of the characteristics listed above.

    View or delete associated devices

    Click to open iTunes and sign in to your account, or follow the steps below:

    1. Open iTunes.
    2. Click Connect and enter your Apple ID and password.

    3. Click on your name and select account information in the menu dropdown.

    4. Re-type your password.

    View your associated devices

    Under the iTunes in the cloud section, click on manage devices. (If you did not associate devices with your Apple ID, you will not see the section manage devices). Information about each associated device appears. Next to each device, you can see when she associated with your Apple ID. You can also track how many days left until you can associate your device with a different ID to Apple.

    Remove an associated device

    Under the iTunes in the cloud section, click on manage devices. Click on Delete next to the device you want to remove.

    When you delete your Apple ID from a device, the 90 day limit remains in place on this device. But, you can associate your Apple ID to another device that does not have the limit of 90 days. Depending on when you associated with a device, you may need to wait to associate it with a new Apple ID.

    If you can not click on delete (the button is dimmed), the device you are trying to delete is connected to your Apple ID in the last 30 days. Sign out of the iTunes Store to this device, and then try to remove it.

  • iTunes is my iPhone IS new

    I recently got a new iPhone, I put in place by restoring the backup of my old iPhone 5. The phone works fine, no problem. However, when I plug it into iTunes, the screen appears saying 'Welcome to your new iPhone' and gives me the opportunity to set up as a new iPhone or restore the backup of my 5s, but my phone is obviously not new and I want to leave it how it is (I don't want to lose the things that I have on it since the activation it). Does anyone know the solution to this problem? I just want to be able to use iTunes for my phone normally.

    Whence this backup of the iPhone 5 s?  iCloud?  iTunes?  If it were iTunes, was it the same iTunes you are using now with your iPhone SE?  You use the same ID Apple you used on the old iPhone?

  • backup from iPad to iTunes without setting up as new

    How can I save my iPad from 6 months to my computer for the first time using iTunes without setting it up as a new iPad?

    I offer the choice to restore a backup of my iPad 3 (certainly are not) or to implement the iPad Pro as a new device. I'm assuming this option, all on my iPad, which all can be saved to iCloud, is erased.

    ICloud purchase more storage for this one-time backup is not an option because of the sensitive information that I don't want in iCloud.

    Bonus question: my iPad Pro use the same Apple ID and has some items synchronized in iCloud, then why wasn't the option to restore this backup offered (even if I don't want that).

    Windows 7

    iPad iOS Pro 9.3.2

    56 GB used, sync that would increase when the rest of my iTunes library (not all available for download again).

    You don't have to restore anything. You should be able to go directly to the area of backups on summary in iTunes screen, select backup on this computer, then select NTI Backup Now.

  • can I use icloud email account to set up new iPad?

    1. can I use existing icloud email account to establish new iPad?

    2. What are the benefits of having this icloud email account?

    Hi winwin666,

    I understand that you want to know if you can configure a new iPad or iPad using your e-mail account existing iCloud.   You ask specifically about the e-mail address that ends with @icloud.com or your Apple ID.   The answer to your question depends on your situation.  If you are the one who will use the additional iPads, you certainly want to use the same identifier Apple to keep all your data (calendars, contacts, backups, etc.) synchronized on your devices.

    If additional iPads will be used by someone else, each user must have their own Apple ID to keep their data, notes, messages, iCloud email accounts, etc. related to a single account.

    Here are a few resources that explain Apple ID and iCloud features a little more in detail for you.

  • Icloud and itunes on Win10 installation error

    I can't install iCloud or iTunes on my Windows 10. I have read all the troubleshooting and tried all of the suggestions that I have chosen, but have had no success. The error message is:

    There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the Setup did not finish as expected. Contact your provider to support personal or package.

    It's just my home/personal computer, so I don't have any support staff or the packaging of the contact seller. I am at a loss of what to do next (and am also new to using an iPhone, so maybe I'm just confused) and I would sincerely appreciate any guidance anyone can give me.
