Chose wrong iCloud backup for new ipad pro


iMore Question

My oldest and primary iPad died. Got a new iPad Pro. In the set up I chose the most recent back up which was from a secondary iPad how do I access the back up from my primary iPad from the cloud and use it for my new iPad

Erase all contents and settings, and then go through the setup process again. When prompted, select the iCloud backup you want to restore.

First, create a copy icloud Ipad interests you, Settings, iCloud, back up now, and then enters the ipad pro in iCloud that should be the same in both foots the Ipad pro, and restores the back up from iCloud, you should be able to see the last backup. And that's it
