May need a new ipad Empty May need a new ipad

Post by Carry Bean Wed Aug 30, 2023 8:59 am

I have 2. One is an iPad Pro but the one I’ve had for years is a little one and that’s the one I love but it may be dying. Can I get an iPad here with an English/American operating system and is it possible to transfer pictures and other things from the old iPad to a new one. Also where would I find one to buy? Thanks.

The iPads don't come in specific languages. During setup you select the language you want. All your pictures should be in the iCloud so transferring them should be easy. I'm not sure who is selling iPads locally however you can check with Rueben at ComputerLand in Riberas.

Thanks, Jreboll but I think I want a new one. I bet a student could use yours.

Do pictures automatically go into the ICloud?

You can also try Luis Algarin who is just west of Pancho's. 332-340-7501 His ad is on page 11 of August '23 Ojo del Lago. Does both Apple and Microsoft. Either Luis or Rueben can help you and, perhaps, they have a reconditioned one for sale. I looked on Amazon and every mini (7.9 inch) that's available is reconditioned anyway. The last model that was made in that size was the iPad Mini 5. https://www.macworld.com/article/678361/ipad-mini-7-specs-design-processor-release.html#:~:text=Additionally%2C%20Apple%20is%20currently%20working,of%202023%20or%20in%201H24.
Rueben is at ComputerLand and the shop is west of the Pemex station in Riberas... in the same stretch of stores that houses El Huerto Cafe and Kinda Bazaar and Kinda Not. 376 765 7595 and opens at 10. Rueben is my go to since Mike Riley passed away.

Connect your IPAD to your computer and select Backup in ITunes and as part of setting up your new one it will prompt you to download back to the new one. You can try that now since it does not delete anything or move it. Also a new one can be purchased at Liverpool or at the IShop in the Galleria Santa Anita. Good luck

This will give you an idea on pricing (my amazon.com address is set to one in Mexico)

Pick one that has the most storage.

Just be aware that the iPad mini Generation 5 was the last generation with a 7.9 inch screen. IPad mini Generation 6 and up have screens that are 8.3 inches. Measure diagonally like a TV screen.

If one wants a new Ipad Mini, I would not be concerned that the newer one has an 8.3 inche (diagonally) screen instead of 7.9". That is less that 1/2 inch larger. ONLY if one expected the new one to fit in an 'cover' or something would one actually realize the difference in size.

But it was good to point that out.....
