I had to replace my ipad2. I want to backup my apps and settings of my previous iPad from icloud

to my new iPad. All the documentation I seem to find indicates how to backup to icloud not from it.

 

Thanks.

    Restore from iCloud Backup Step by Step (if you have backed up to iCloud)

     

     

    1. Erase all contents and settings (Settings>General>Reset>Erase all content and settings)

     

     

    2. You'll be asked twice to confirm

     

     

    3. You'll see Apple logo and progress bar

     

     

    4. You'll see a big iPad logo on screen

     

     

    5. Configuration start

     

     

    6. Set language

     

     

    7. Set country

     

     

    8. Enable Location Service
