I have just bought a new I pad 3 and want to give my I pad 2 to a friend. What will I have to do to clear my info on the old I pad and set it up on my new one? How are apple I D effected and passwords cleared?

Any advice welcome.

    Go to Settings>iTunes and App Store>Tap your ID and sign out. In order to completely erase the iPad go to Settings>General>Reset>Erase all contents and settings.


    Your passwords and ID will be gone after that. This restores the device to out of the box condition.

    To clear to old before passing it on, open the Settings app and tap on General (left hand menu). Scroll down and tap on settings, then tap on Erase All Content and Settings.


    If you have been synching the iPad to iTunes on a computer, you should also have backed it up. If you havn't backed it, you will want to do so before clearing the settings and use the back up to set up your new iPad.
