It's a pretty easy move, so fasten your 30-pin dock connector, and click through our gallerific gallery below to find out just how it's done.
How to Upgrade from Original iPad to iPad 2?
Step 1: The first thing you need to do is to plug in your old iPad and "Check for update" by selecting your device in iTunes. If an update is available, go ahead and upgrade.
If you get a notification stating your iPad is already up to date, then you can continue the process of backing up your old device.
Step 2: After ensuring your device is up to date, manually back it up to ensure you don't lose any files when upgrading. To do this, right-click on your device, then select "Back Up". We will use this backup later to restore your files to your iPad 2. iPad 2 to Computer Transfer is the best transferring, backup tool for iPad 2 users.
Step 3: After the backup process is complete for your old iPad, navigate to iTunes > Preferences > Devices. Locate your device in the Device backups list and ensure that the date of last backup is accurate. After verifying this information, you can close iTunes Preferences.
Step 4: When you plug in your new iPad, you will be given an option to either set up a new iPad or restore it from a back up. Select the second option, then select your backup from the drop-down menu. When you are ready to restore from a backup, click the Continue button to upgrade from iPad to iPad 2.
Restoring from a back up will take a few minutes. During this process, key files will be copied over to your new iPad. Be sure not to unplug your iPad from your computer or you may (or may not) face serious consequences.
After this process has finished, your iPad will restart and will then begin syncing over all of your apps, media, and settings from your old iPad. When this sync is complete, your new iPad will appear just like your old one, except it will have the newer features that makes old iPads cry.
