I recently updated my iPad from 4.0.1 to the new iOS 7.0.4. I had made a backup and transferred the apps to my iTunes library. After updating it, I selected the 'Restore from iTunes Backup'. It did restore but it left me on that page. Am I supposed to click 'Set up as New iPad' after restoring, or do I just leave it?

iPad 2, iOS 7.0.4

    If you're restoring from an iTunes backup, don't set up as a new iPad; just leave it, and your previous settings and playlists will install.
