    I have no idea what this device can do. We got it for free at work. It seems to be a 2TB 2011 model. We are the only department that uses iPads and iPhones so it was given to us.

    Can I use it to sync data between my iPads, back up their data or ?

    I only use iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch, so my knowledge as to what this accessory can do is very limited.

    I did try to search for information about it online, but had little luck finding anything useful. Hopefully someone can provide some insight on using this item. It will be in a workplace, so it isn’t for my personal use. Thanks in advance!

    Here's a guide by Apple on the Time Capsule and what it can do for you. Also here is a link to the User Manual. Between the two links you should be able to find all your answers and more. Thank you!

    @firedept10 posted some great resources above. In a nutshell, Time Capsules are wireless routers that can back up OS X and macOS devices. Unfortunately they can’t be used for anything related to iOS devices or simply as remote storage. I have a Time Capsule but I’m not a huge fan of it because it’s so limited.
    The good news is Time Capsules are extremely easy to set up and can also be connected to some USB 2.0 devices like printers and hard drives.
