I need to sync an ipad mini with a regular ipad. If I were to open them plug them both into the same computers itunes, would they have identical information?

You will need to choose one as the "master", back that unit up to iTunes, then restore the other unit from that backup and then sync all the same content and apps. That's the only way they'd have identical data. If you need to keep then synched on an ongoing basis, you'll probably need to use some sort of cloud-based service such as iCloud or Dropbox to hold the data, which of course will require that your apps support that service for storage of documents.

  • How do I sync my new ipad mini with my old ipad 2, without losing any apps or data in notes?  I need step by step instructions for first-time sync with ipad mini.  Thanks.

    If you synced it many times, you have to have a backup. It's just a question of how old that backup is now. When did you last sync?
    First of all launch iTunes on your computer and go to Edit>Preferences>Devices. Do you see any backups for you iPad in that window? If so, how new is the newest backup? That will be the backup that you will want to use. But remember that if you use that backup and it is one month old, you can only restore from that date back in time. Anything that you did on the iPad in the past month will not be in that backup.
    Turn on the new iPad Minin and start activating OTA via WiFi. You will get to a certain point in the process where you will be given the choice to Set up as new, Restore from iCloud - or Restore from iTunes. You will want to select Restore from iTunes.
    That is the short and sweet version. There are step by step instructions in this article. This applies to the mini as well as the iPad 4 or the iPad 3 for that matter.

  • I just bought an new ipad mini with wifi and cellular. Is there any way to send text messages to people and contacts that do not have iphones such as friends with blackberrys or a samsung galaxy smartphone.

    I just bought an new ipad mini with wifi and cellular. Is there any way to send text messages to people and contacts that do not have iphones such as friends with blackberrys or a samsung galaxy smartphone from this ipad. Everytime I try to send a message to a person that does not have an Apple product ( Iphone or Ipad ) it comes up saying contact is not registered for iMessage and wont send it. I can only send them a message from my iPhone 4 instead. Do I have to install a new App from the App store to send these non iMessage cell users a message?

    I have been having a issue with getting the colors on my monitor to match the colors fro my print lab. I now have the monitor calibrated to match the prints but when I open elements it doesn't use the same colors. If i have it use the calibrated profile by changing the color management settings, the color picker no longer shows true white or black. How do I get elements 12 to honor the new calibrated settings?

    Ok so I've done what you said and this is what it's come back ....
    I don't know that these are the errors , but they're the things which don't look right ...
    Throughout the shut down there is a recurring line ;
    It says ;
    Com.apple.launchd 1 0x100600e70.anonymous.unmount 301 PID still valid
    Then there are 2 more which I think are related ;
    Com.apple.securityd 29 PID job has I overstayed its welcome , forcing removal.
    Then the same with fseventd 48 and diskarbitrationd 13
    Oh and on Launchd1 : System : stray anonymous job at shut down : PID 301 PPID13 PGID 13 unmount...
    Then the last process says "about to call: reboot (RB_AUTOBOOT).
    Continuing...
    And stops ...
    Hope this means something to you ... Thanks again for your help so far :-)

  • IPad Mini with RD and ipad mini

    hello again...
    At last i ordered for 32gb ipad mini with retina display. Yet to receive...
    And there now is a small voice in side my heart which says that price comparison b/w iPad mini with retina display and iPad mini is considerably more. I feel that is it worth giving more money for retina display'?..
    Could anybody help me to stop that voice..
    And my choice of 32gb ipad mini with retina dispaly is fine against iPad air with all its light weight and all other fascinating features??...
    Thanks,
    SE

    I Have the same problem. It started with using Safari, so I posted a question and then advised to do a cold reboot(home button +  power button), it helped fix some other bugs, but not the reboot. I also reset all settings in system Settings. It fixed some more bugs, but reboots still happen on YouTube app now. I think this may be a modem driver problem, because it only happened to me when I was communicating with the Internet.
    BY the way, the keyboard after iOS 8 update ***** too. It gets stuck on Cap and double-letters occasionally.

  • Try to load new iPad Mini with reserve copy from my iMac

    Hi,
    Try to load new iPad Mini with reserve copy from my iMac coming from my iPhone 4S.
    When selecting the copy I can not find the just made copy from my iPhone 4S.
    I see tree others, but not the latest from iPhone 4S.
    Is there a max on copies showed ??
    Please advise,

    As far as I know there is no limit to the number of backups that you can store in iTunes as long as you have the available storage capacity on the Mac. I have at least 10 or 12 backups in iTunes for my iPad and iPod Touch. Every time that you restore from a backup - a time and date stamped backup is created that cannot be overwritten. I must have 8 of those backups on my Mac.
    Did you look in iTunes>Preference>Devices to see if the backup is really in there?

  • IPad Mini with IOS7 showing 35 unread Yahoo emails

    iPad mini with IOS7 updated yesterday is showing 35 unread emails on my yahoo account using the mail account on the iPad.   All other yahoo accounts including the yahoo mail app DO NOT show 35 unread emails. 
    1) I have added and deleted the yahoo account several times with no luck
    2) rebooted iPad with no luck
    3) iPad 2 with same yahoo account added DOES NOT show 35 unread emails.
    Any suggestions on what is causing this?

  • IPad Mini with retina display acting funny

    My iPad Mini with retina display's screen is acting funny. It isn't cracked, but the bottom half keeps flickering and has green line running through it. It also has a bit of a milky color to it, and you can see small, individual white lines. Would I be able to get my screen replaced? If so, how much would it cost?

    Hey there Allicat18,
    It sounds like you are seeing some unexpected activity when using your iPad Mini. I would start with resetting the device with these steps:
    To reset, press and hold both the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons for at least 10 seconds, until you see the Apple logo.
    Turn your iOS device off and on (restart) and reset
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1430
    If the issue persists, use the following article to backup your iPad:
    iOS: How to back up and restore your content
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1766
    And restore it from your backup with this article:
    Use iTunes to restore your iOS device to factory settings
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1414
    If the above steps do not resolve your issue, the following article has repair information for your iPad:
    iPad Repair - Other
    http://www.apple.com/support/ipad/repair/other/
    Request iPad service
    Click or tap below to start a service request and see your service options, which include sending us your iPad, chatting with Apple Support, and more.
    How long will it take?
    After you send in your iPad for service, you’ll receive a replacement or your repaired iPad in three to five business days. A replacement iPad will be new or equivalent to new in both performance and reliability. If your iPad was engraved by Apple, it could take up to two weeks.
    What does it cost?
    Repair and replacement costs depend on your iPad model and your coverage under warranty or AppleCare+. If the required repair is covered by the Apple one-year Limited Warranty, there will be no charge for the service.
    Out-of-warranty* cost:
    iPad mini: $219
    iPad mini with Retina display: $249
    Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.
    All the best,
    Sterling

  • Ipad mini with retina-- apps crashing on ios 8. Even apps updated for ios 8 are also crashing

    Me too. I've been an Apple fan for a long time but things are starting to get painful. I hate telling people not to upgrade but I can't honestly recommend otherwise.
    A bad thing is that these problems are not predictable. I have an iPad Mini - no retina that I got for free for opening a new bank account. I am a developer so I have run it on iOS 8 for some time. Even the released version has annoying bugs that weren't there on iOS 7. While the performance isn't great, it is useable. But a retina would have higher requirements and perhaps iOS 8 makes your machine too slow.
    Do try all of the resetting and troubleshooting techniques. They may help.

  • Issues syncing iPhone 5 and iPad mini with outlook calendars

    I am having issues syncing my iPhone 5 and iPad mini with Outlook calendar.  This is a new problem since I upgraded to IOS 7.  I am now using ios 7.0.2.  I have removed air sync for calendars and that has not resolved the issue.  Nothing new on my calendar is syncing to my phone or ipad.  Any suggestions?

    To use AirPlay, you need these:
    iPhone 4 (or later), iPad, iPad mini, or iPod touch (4th generation or later)

    Yes ... with regard to syncing. Actually, you need to be running OS X 10.6.8. This is copied from the iPad Mini tech specs website.
    Apple ID (required for some features)
    Internet access6
    Syncing with iTunes on a Mac or PC requires:
    Mac: OS X v10.6.8 or later
    PC: Windows 7; Windows Vista; or Windows XP Home or Professional with Service Pack 2 or later

  • Why do I need to connect my Ipad mini with my Mac Book Pro via iCloud?

    Why do I need to connect my Ipad mini with my Mac Book Pro via iCloud? I don't have iCloud on my MacBook Pro and only intend to use the mini to check e-mail and use Garage Band and Photo Booth for song writing when traveling . . .

    Thanks Community! I solved the problem. In fact it was not a problem but lack of understanding. These guys at Apple are way ahead in thir thinking. I will try to explain as short as I can.
    In Lion, ihe Prefferences/Display show only two choices: 6-7 steps of resolution and some color tab. No two screens, no two display to overlap, nothing for us to do. "That was the problem"! Everything is automatic.
    When I connected the HDMI cable to the Miniport into a T-bolt slot, the TV screen showed the "spiral galaxy" how Zyriab is calling it. In fact he gave me the best clue. That shows the connection is good. But where is the Mac Book image?
    You have to drag it to the right out of the Mac Book display area, and "voila!" it will continue on the TV screen. The same with the mouse pointer, push it out ofthe Mac Book display area and you see it on the TV sreen. Good image, you can keep the max resolution, etc. The sound is still on the Book's speakers. I have to figure that out.
    Thank everybody, especialy Zyriab, ne was the closest.
    High regards to everybody
