Learn about How to use multiple iPhone, iPad, or iPod devices with one computer

HT1495 Is it possible to set up two iPads (each with different choice of app, movie, music, etc) using one iTunes ID account on a single laptop?

I've got a new iPad and would like to set up the new device. My wife has an older iPad2. I would like use one iTune ID account for both devices and to have my new iPad having the same apps (with all the scores, etc) but preferbly to have a different music & movie collection from hers. Is it possible to set up such configuration accordingly.


I'm now in the SET UP iPAD section and don't know which option to click:

1) Set Up as new iPad

2) Restore from iCloud Backup

3) Restore from iTunes Backup (I've done backup before)


Hope to get some good tips from fellow users.
