iPad Backup & Restore
When you are issued with a new iPad, the easiest way to set up your new iPad is to backup your current iPad, then restore the backup to your new iPad.
Be aware that some passwords and downloaded content will not restore from backup.
As an example, the Bookshelf App will restore from backup, but the password and downloaded books will not, you will have to enter your password, then download your books.
Ensure you know all of your passwords before you set up your new iPad.
