iPad back up
« on: Tuesday 09 April 19 17:38 BST (UK) »
Evening all

I need to get a new iPad - my battery is dying.

I donít know whether to plug the new one into the pc and start there, or skip that step and use a back from my existing pad (which would keep my photos).

If I choose the first option, can I then restore from a back up to keep the photos Iíve taken on the pad?

Back it up to your icloud account then you can access it afterwards from your new ipad.

Using Apple for a new battery can be very expensive. But if you \are accepting it is almost dead then a clone fix is worth thinking about & a lot cheaper.

One example of many options here https://www.ipaqrepair.co.uk/ipad-repairs

At the Apple shop a new battery is around £85. However if itís an iPad they give you a brand new one instead of replacing the battery. The iPad is the only product they donít open up.

If you canít get to a shop ring their help line (very helpful) I think they can sort it by post. You would have to back up again they would help you

I did find a local guy who reckoned he could replace the battery for £65. Then he added ďif we break the screen thatís another £12, and if the display goes thatís another £126. Oh, and weíre not liable.Ē

I gave up and went to buy a new one, set up from back up. 

Minor issues, I cannot log out of my Apple ID on the old one (husband thought he might use it for as long as it lasts), which might cause a problem for back ups. And try as I might I cannot add a second twitter account to mine (itís another one that I manage). Follow all the steps, but it doesnít work.

Well done. However just to say thatís why you should be careful when going to other repairers.

I did get in touch with a chap I used to work with, an absolute apple fanboy. He said donít bother, theyíre basically not meant to be serviced. I suppose it ties you into apple to pony up some more cash to keep your pics etc.

Quite like this new one apart from the frustrations mentioned previously, although it does have loads of built in apps that I will never use, and of course apple donít let you remove them.

Some interesting apps - thereís a word processing package, spreadsheet and PowerPoint type thing. I canít quite see myself using the Garage Band app though  ;D
