The iPad mini typically has a charge in the box (unless it’s been sitting on the shelf for a while and the charge has run flat).
You can choose to setup your iPad mini as a new iPad, or Restore information (such as apps, data, and services) from a backup. The iPad mini can be either backed up to iCloud (Apple’s remote servers) or locally to your computer. Siri is Apple’s language interaction feature where you can speak requests (such as send a message to a person, dictate a note, or ask what the weather is going to be like). You can help Apple keep an eye on your product by allowing the iPad to send Diagnostics and Usage data to Apple. Thank you for this easy to follow text to set up the iPad but how does one change the time at the top of the screen?
Netflix has added a new tool to help you better control how much data you use when streaming on cellular networks. If you've never owned an iPhone before or you're brand new to using a smartphone, you'll want to set your iPhone up as new in order to start using it. If you're transferring from another platform such as Android or BlackBerry, you can transfer some of that data after your iPhone is up and running.
After your new iPhone powers on, you'll see a welcome screen, Slide your finger across the bottom where it says slide to set up. Now on the Location Services screen, choose whether you'd like to have location services on by default. On the next screen, choose whether or not you want to use iCloud to access data on other iOS devices and to store your photos, contacts, and calendars. The next screen lets you choose what phone numbers and emails associated with your Apple ID that you'd like to use on your new iPhone on conjunction with iMessage. Lastly, choose whether or not you'd like your iPhone to send diagnostic information to Apple. On the Welcome to iPhone screen, just tap on Get Started and your iPhone Home screen will be displayed for the first time. On the next screen, tap on Restore from iCloud backup and enter your credentials when asked. Just remember to make sure you're on the most current version of iTunes 11 before continuing. If you aren't already connected to your computer containing your iTunes backups, your iPhone will prompt you to do so now. If you're running into issues with any of the methods above, the iMore forums are an excellent place to find answers to common problems and ask about other ones. Here’s how to prepare for your iPhone 6’s arrival by setting up iCloud before it even arrives.
Before we begin it’s important to note that you’ll need to create an iCloud account for this tutorial. Once you have your device, just complete the setup process on your device and you’ll be provided with account credentials for iCloud.
Click on the options for Bookmarks to decide what browser you’d like iCloud to sync your favorites from. The iCloud Control Panel’s most essential function is to let you manage how much storage space you have in iCloud.
Depending on your use case, you may need to add some iCloud storage at some point in the future.
With recent updates to Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS brought with it iCloud Keychain, which keeps track of your various account usernames and passwords for you so that you only have to remember one password, instead of dozens. As a reminder to all of our readers, not all of our how-to guides are meant for the advanced techies.
Step 4: When prompted, type in a phone number that will be able to receive SMS messages when you need to activate a new device.
Step 3: Tap “Restore with Security Code” and enter the password you created when setting up iCloud Keychain for the first time (it may be your iPhone password).
Step 4: An SMS message will be sent to the phone number that you added for activating a new device.
Step 6: An SMS message will be sent to the phone number that you added for activating a new device. Now that all of your devices are using iCloud Keychain, you can start using it with Safari and it will automatically save usernames, passwords, and credit cards info that you enter in various websites. Step 2: Select all categories you wish to be saved and used in Safari’s AutoFill service, including Names and Passwords, as well as Credit Cards. Now your devices, including your Mac, will all be connected and your various passwords will be saved in iOS and Mavericks so you can have immediate access to everything, including credit card information, from whereever you are. I wish they’d bring some kinda version of this to Windows to sync as well, but I doubt it will happen.

I played a bit with iCloud Keychain but decided, in the end, that I still prefer 1Password. If you skipped the setup process, tap the Settings icon on the Home screen, select iCloud, then enter your Apple ID. With iCloud, you get 5GB of free storage that can be used for photos, videos, documents, app data and more. Set up iCloud on all your devices to keep your photos, videos, documents and app data safely stored and up to date everywhere. If you just got your new iPad, you're going to want to set it up and get it working just as quickly and effectively as possible. For most people, most of the time, we recommend iCloud, but we'll walk you through both of them below. When you turn on your new iPad, you'll be greeted with a Lock screen that simply says "iPad". If this is the first time you've ever used an Apple product or service or just want a new one, you can create an Apple ID. Agree to the terms and conditions of service by tapping the blue Agree button on the bottom left. For the smoothest experience and longest battery life, we always recommend setting your new iPad up as new (see above).
A progress bar will show you an approximation of how long it will take to download your backup.
Once your iPad reboots, you'll be asked to re-enter all your passwords (as a security measure, iCloud will not restore passwords). If a software update is available for your new iPad, a popup notification will let you know, and a red badge will appear at the top righthand corner of your Settings app.
Just like setting up your new iPad, you can either do software updates directly on your device, over-the-air (OTA) or by plugging into iTunes on your PC. OTA on-device updates are faster and more convenient since your iPad will only download the changes and update in place, so once it's done and rebooted, you're good to go.
A clean slate can do wonders in life, especially when it comes to the numerous gadgets and gizmos we use on a daily basis, such as the Apple iPhone. However, restoring any iPhone to its original factory settings is a simple a process that requires little more than your smartphone and five minutes of your time. Even so we advise you to use the supplied Lightning cable and adapter to plug the iPad mini into the mains to ensure the setup process is uninterrupted. This is used by apps such as Maps to pinpoint you on a Map, and other apps offer customised information local to you. We typically choose iCloud because the iOS device will be backed up automatically whenever we connect it to the power (and it has a Wi-Fi connection). Apple points out that this helps it improve its products, although it also enables them to keep an eye on what you use your iPad for, where, when, how long, and so on. This doesn’t always work, though, so to set the date and time manually, turn Set Automatically off, tap Time Zone to set your time zone. My husband uses the current iPad all day everyday so if I get to use the new mini and I don’t want to have all the same apps & photos duplicated onto the mini , what will stop this from happening ? Follow the steps below and then check out our guides on how to transfer data from Android and BlackBerry as well. You can of course choose not to use iCloud or you can choose not to send usage information to Apple. If you don't have access to WiFi or no networks are found, you can choose Use Cellular instead or wait until you're within range of an accessible WiFi network.
Make sure you read the description of what location services are before deciding whether or not you'd like to enable or disable them.
If you're brand new to iPhone and iOS, make sure you check out some of the other features below as well! Those potential iPhone 6 buyers who were lucky might have managed to snag one of the new devices for delivery on launch day. In Chrome, which is the browser we’re using, downloads show up at the bottom of the window when they’re complete. This functionality isn’t limited to one browser – you can sync favorites from Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome.
By default iCloud will sync over any photos uploaded by your computer or taken with your iPhone 6. By default, the iCloud Control Panel syncs this information, but only if there’s a copy of Microsoft’s Outlook personal management app installed on the PC. Sometimes, we offer basic tutorials to our fans that may not have already figured things out in iOS. If you’ve been using Safari’s keychain feature all along, all of the passwords you previously saved will now be available on all devices.

My password info seems too vulnerable on my Mac with iCloud Keychain implemented, unless I require a passcode to wake my laptop up from sleep, which is too big a hassle, given that I’m on my computer all the time. Previous purchases may be unavailable if they are no longer on the iTunes Store, App Store or iBooks.
Your iPad will show you the most common languages for the area in which you bought it, but you can tap the downward arrow icon to see all the choices.
Location Services use GPS, cell-tower triangulation, and Wi-Fi router mapping to determine the approximate location of your iPad. Even if you're on 3G or LTE, your iPad wants Wi-Fi because there may be a lot of data to move around and blasting through your data cap on setup is no fun. Also free, also incredibly useful to track down your iPad if you ever lose it or have it stolen. It's anonymous and helps make Apple make better products, but if you're uncomfortable with the idea, choose Don't send. You still need to get apps and games, books, TV shows, and movies, set up your email, get iMessage and FaceTime up and running, and much much more.
We've got a special, dedicated thread set up in our forums to deal with any issues you may have. Furthermore, feel free to follow the same directions when performing a factory reset on any of your iOS devices. It’s easy enough to choose English as the main language though, click Show More, choose English and click the blue Next arrow. The iPad will broadcast it’s location to Apple who track its movement, then they can tell you where it is at any given time.
Siri sends your voice input to Apple’s server, where it is crunched by a supercomputer and the information is sent back. Registration is far easier on iOS than any other product, there are no forms to fill out or serial numbers to put in boxes. If you're coming from Android or BlackBerry, make sure you check out our guides on transferring your stuff over that are linked above. We understand that not everyone trusts the cloud and if you prefer traditional hard backups in iTunes over using iCloud, that's fine too. We've even got separate guides for both that can help you pull as much data as you possibly can to your new iPhone. Those who weren’t lucky will probably need to wait a few weeks past the iPhone 6 launch day. Depending on what version of Windows you have, you could be prompted to approve any changes. Once the installation is finish you’ll be asked if you want to restart your computer now or later. Since iPhone 5s and 5c launched, there are millions of people that are new to the iOS ecosystem.
I did not need to enter the passcode or wait for the six-digit verification code to be sent to my iPhone.
If you prefer the old-school approach, you can also set up your new iPad using iTunes on your Mac or Windows PC. You have to look at the choices and tap one to check it before the Next button will even activate.
This feature is used for turn-by-turn navigation (like Navigon, check-in games (like FourSquare), social networks (like Facebook), geo-tagging (like in the Camera app), and utilities (like Find my iPad, etc. It keeps all your data safely backed up and let you restore or easily switch to a new or additional iOS devices later. Medium updates might add a few new features or support new devices (for example, iOS 5.1 released in March of 2012 with the new iPad).
So be patient and make sure you don't disconnect your iPhone until iTunes tells you that your restore is complete. Regardless of where you fit on the spectrum, chances are that if you plan on getting an iPhone 6 you won’t want to waste time fiddling with Apples iCloud service. Instead of making iCloud available to anyone and everyone who might want it, Apple opted to keep iCloud mostly locked to its platforms. Also, on very rare occasions when I have to use a different browser, it’s nice to have password access through the 1Password extension.
Unless you have a particular need to globally disable it, you'll want to turn on the Location Services feature at this point.
