    Default Help setting up new device?

    So. As off last night, I am the proud new owner of a brand spankibg new iPad Pro 9.7, wifi & cellular, 256 GB.
    I had backed up my Air 2 to iCloud.
    Everything seems to have loaded up ok.

    But in settings, it says I'm ready to install 9.3.3

    I click on install and it won't, instead it tells me I will be able to install after my iPad is done restoring from iCloud backup.

    But everything is restored.

    What's going on and how can I fix it?

    I'm on wifi. I just decided to completely wipe it clean and start over. If it doesn't work I might have to go back to the Apple Store.

    I decided to start over but instead of restoring from my last backup, I set it up as a new device. I had to put all my apps manually one by one but in doing so, I removed a lot of clutter and only kept the ones I actually use. And... IT WORKS LIKE A CHARM WOOHOO!!! *happy dance*
