The best way is to use iCloud.

Backup your old iPad to iCloud and then restore to the new iPad Air.

  1. After your new iPad powers on, you'll see a welcome screen, Slide your finger across the bottom where it says slide to set up.
  2. Now choose your language from the choices presented to you.
  3. Select the country or region you are in.
  4. Now choose your WiFi network and enter the password for it if there is one. If you don't have access to WiFi, you can choose Use Cellular but keep in mind, this only works if you've purchased an iPad that has cellular data connectivity. Not to mention that only some things in your iCloud backup will be restored without WiFi. Others won't be triggered until you're on WiFi. Or you can choose to restore from an iTunes backup if you have access to one.
  5. Now on the Location Services screen, choose whether you'd like to have location services on by default. Make sure you read the description of what location services are before deciding whether or not you'd like to enable or disable them. Keep in mind that certain apps like Maps need location services to operate properly.
  6. On the next screen, tap on Restore from iCloud backup and enter your credentials when asked.
  7. Now agree to the Terms and Conditions. You will be asked to verify that you agree to them a second time.
  8. If you have iCloud backups, your iPad will now show them. Tap on the backup name that you'd like to restore from.

If you have iTunes installed on your computer you can back up all your apps and data on your computer. Then you should be able to plug in your new iPad air and migrate all the data to it.

Ipad air screen unresponsive when entering passcode to enable touch I'd or slide to unlock

Has the iPad suffered any damage? It is likely that it has. If it is less than 3 years old Apple may repair/replace it for free. Even if it is older it is worth booking an appointment and taking it to an Apple store to be looked at. They will probably tell you what is ultimately the issue.

  • If you have your old iPad, back it up with iTunes on your computer.
  • With your new iPad connected to your computer, click the "Restore Backup" in the summary screen of your iPad (on iTunes).
  • You should have your old game data now installed on your new iPad.
  • Update, or buy, a new version of the game on your new iPad
