    I am about to get a new iPad in October when the new models come out. This will replace my iPad 3 rd gen. But I need to know...does putting my Apple ID and password in the new device immediately transfer all my data from the old device to the new one? If not, how do I go about doing that?
    First thing is to make sure you’ve backed up all the data you wish to keep, either on the iOS device using iCloud backup or on your PC-MAC using itunes etc, make sure you’ve highlighted the items you want to back in the iCloud section, contacts, calendar, safari or anything else.

    Once that’s done you can sign into any other Ios device with your apple id(icloud) and it should all beam back into the new device, it should take too long 10-15 mins depending on your connection-signal speed

    i do it most years and touch wood the contacts stay, the Photos app is now better at it as well

    If you back your iPad up to iCloud and then restore your future iPad from that backup, then yes. But if you have more than 5GB worth of stuff to back up, you'll need to pay extra for more iCloud storage. The best and fastest way to restore it would be through iTunes on a computer.

    I won an iPad first gen through work and had it for a few years. I sold it for an iPad mini first gen when it came out and still have it. I'll probably wait for the next iPads to come out to see what I'm upgrading to. I like the mini but also like the size of the iPad Air and may get the next one that is released.

    I get a new iPad every year through my job. However, if I were paying for them I wouldn't upgrade unless I started to see some major performance issues. For what I use my iPad for, I really could keep it and be happy for a few years. I will say this, I know a lot of people that get a new one every year because they are able to sell their old iPad and get a lot of money back to use to put against the cost of a new iPad. So they end up paying just a fraction of the cost every year. And they are always current then. Great thing about Apple products is that the resale value is pretty high.

    I think the iPad Pro will be in the cards for me next year. Unless I can hold out a little longer with my 3rd Gen. until another refresh of iPads...decisions, decisions.

    I will very likely be upgrading from my iPad Air to the Pro before end of year. My hubby is waiting to take the Air from me to replace his older iPad.

    I bought the Air about 6 months ago and can't see myself needing to update anytime soon. I update my iPhone as soon as the new ones come out, but my iPad does a great job until they release one with huge updates.

    I am hoping we get an Air 3 this year. I am very happy with my original Air, it is a fabulous device. However, I would like more storage and an LTE modem. Shared data was still pretty expensive when I bought my Air, so I don't regret the purchase but I definitely wish I had that option now.

    I got a iPad Air for Christmas two years ago and then my wife started to use my iPad a lot. My wife was to the point of hoarding my iPad Air, so I asked for one for Christmas and got one.

    I'm still using iPad mini(1st gen), dead slow which is obvious and I'm in no mood to pick another iPad as I bought MacBook Air last year!

    I don't usually get the iPad straight away when it comes out. Starting next year I might actually start getting them 2-3 months after its release.
