I am selling my ipad1 to a friend - how do I "clear" it before handing it over?  ie clear off my photos and clear my iCal data.  Also, do I need to somehow take off all the apps that I put onto it before I sell it?

I would do one of two methods

 

Settings > General > Reset > Erase all Content and Settings

 

This will wipe the device if you dont have a computer and bring it back to when you first got it (Connect to itunes graphic)

 

OR

This method would allow you to backup your device and keep its data for future iPad / iOS devices

 

I hope this helps!

 

GL in your sale!

You can restore it to the original factory settings - http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1414.

 

This will take everything affiliated with your account off. Since apps are tied to the account and not the device, they will be wiped out as well - in fact, there is no way your friend could use your apps unless he/she uses the same iTunes account as you.

Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Contents And Settings should do what you want.
