iPad air-transfer your stuff from Android BlackBerry and Windows


You can transfer information from your current device to your new iPad Air, even if you're coming to Apple from Android, BlackBerry or Windows.

 

Follow these steps below to back up your messages, email accounts, photos, notes, and other personal settings, and restore the backup to your iPad Air.

  • Use the PC software for your current device to copy your content to your PC. The manufacturer's website should help if you need it.

  • Insert your new 4G SIM card that you've registered with EE into your iPad Air.
  • Download the latest version of iTunes to your PC from apple.com/itunes. If you already have iTunes installed it may prompt you to update. Just follow the step by step instructions.
  • Turn on your new iPad Air and complete the setup by selecting your language and country.
  • When asked, choose your WiFi network. If you don't have a WiFi connection, you can Connect to iTunes.
  • When prompted to set up your device, select Restore from iTunes Backup.
  • Connect your new iPad to iTunes (on the same computer you used to back up your old device). iTunes will ask you to restore from backup or set up as new. Select the backup of your old device and choose Continue.
