My Mom has an original iPad, and wants to order the new 4th generation New (new?) iPad. She does not have a computer at all. She syncs her address book, contacts, notes, and photos between her iPad and her iPhone 4S via iCloud. I don't think she currently backs up to iCloud.


Aside from the address book, contacts, etc. done via iCloud, how can she get everything else over to a new iPad?


I see that there is an option under Settings --> iCloud --> Storage & Backup t0backup camera roll, documents, and settings. But I don't see an option to be able to restore from this backup on an empty new iMac. And I assume she'd have to download all of her Apps again?


Any suggestions would be appreciated,


iPad, iOS 5, 64 GB WiFi
