You have to have a current backup of the old iPad before you restore the new iPad from the backup of the old iPad. Read this and see if it becomes clearer to you. You should probably transfer purchases as well so that all of your bases are covered.Transfer purchases.How to backup and restore from a backupTransfer purchases from the old iPad, backup the old iPad and sync one last time. Then restore the new iPad from the backup of the old one and sync with iTunes.
I tried the solution u gave me, and i did get all of my apps from my old ipad to the new ipad.
Unfortunately, the apps are basically empty. The app's contents doesnt transfer to the new ipad. (I still have to redo the bubble mania and those gigabytes of movies from ppstream). I guess the content is strictly limited to the original ipad and cant be transfered.
Is there any way to directly make a complete copy/ clone of the old ipad and transfer it to the new one?
