    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.
