Apple’s devices are the most exclusive gadgets you can find in the entire world. They have their own level of 'premiumness' and uniqueness.

Priced a bit higher than their competitors, Apple products are still the most bought in the entire world. And the reason? Apple does not just sell phones or iPads or computers. It sells class. It sells luxury. And it sells status!

It is a brand that sells you a good personality, as some might say. By creating devices that are simple to use, look elite and have a sleek body, Apple is selling accessories to compliment your lifestyle. I mean, just look at those devices! How aesthetically pleasing are they? Beautiful things that add to our overall look!

This is why, as soon as a new Apple phone or a tablet or a watch releases, you will see long queues of people waiting outside Apple stores, trying their best to be the first to get their hands on the new devices. No matter how pricey Apple’s flagship phone is, people buy it! That is called blind loyalty.

Apple has tried making their phones distinct to an extent that literally, every file type in the devices have their own uniqueness and … difficulty. Some of Apple’s features are really a pain in the you-know-what.

For example, if you want to transfer files from your PC to your Apple devices, you cannot simply drag and drop. You’ll have to do it via iTunes. This is changing or upgrading to newer models of iPhones or iPads is a mess because it is so difficult to transfer files from the older models to the newer ones.

The process is so annoying that many procrastinators (like me), keep both the devices so that they don’t have to go through the long process of transferring data.

But there are some apps that simplify the whole transferring process. So since I was upgrading my iPad once, I googled about the best apps to transfer data from your old iPad to a new iPad, and I came across this app called iMazing, which is truly ahh-mazing!

Follow my guide below to transfer data from old iPad to new iPad and you will know why I’m a fan of this app!

How to Transfer Data from Old iPad to New iPad 

Congratulations on buying a new iPad! All excited to try it out but dreaded by the lengthy data transfer process? Well, worry no more because if you are upgrading your iPad and want to know how you can transfer files from old iPad to new iPad without using iTunes, you will be needing an assistant. And by “an assistant”, I mean a virtual one.

iMazing is your assistant as well as your transferring tool that is compatible with all Apple devices and gets the pesky job done in the simplest way possible. Wanna know how?

Follow the step-by-step quick guide below to easily transfer data from old iPad to new iPad:

Step 1: Download the iMazing software on your MacBook/Windows 

You can download iMazing for free from the developer’s official website.

Transfer files from old iPad to new iPad with no hassle

The tool is free to download with limited transfers, configurations, exports, unlimited backups, and more on your free trial that lasts a lifetime. However, some features require you to purchase the license. 

Note: Transferring data from an old iPad to a new iPad will require you to buy the license.

Step 2: Install & launch the app, connect both your iPads to your PC

Connect your iPads to PC

Once your iPads have been connected to your PC, iMazing will instantly recognize your devices and show them on the main window.

Step 3: Select the source & target devices and click on “Transfer to Another Device” 

Choose the source and target device

You will see a number of functions that you can perform with the iMazing app. For this specific purpose, click on “Transfer to Another Device” in the functions list. 

Continue to the next step by clicking on “Next” at the bottom.

Step 4: Choose what files and apps to transfer and what not & click "Next"

You can also change the name of your target device so that it’s easy to recognize later.

The wizard may ask you to turn off the “Find my iPad” option on your target device. Follow the instructions to ensure a smooth transfer.

The transfer of data from old iPad to new iPad will begin. It may take some time depending on the size of the data you are transferring. 

Once the transfer is finished, your new iPad will restart.

Enjoy your new iPad with all the contents you had on your old iPad. With iMazing’s smooth transfer, the new iPad will just feel like yours! 


  • You should keep both your old iPad and new iPad connected to your PC while transferring the data.

  • Do you also want to transfer your health data as well as the passwords from old iPad to new iPad? Be sure that the current backup is encrypted.

  • Your transfer will not include the data in your iTunes Media Library (Music, Books, iTunes U, Podcasts, Ringtones and Movies synced or purchased on iTunes).

  • If you want to transfer iTunes Media Library from old iPad to new iPad, you will have to transfer these to your new iPad separately, using iMazing.

What is the Best App to Transfer Data from Old iPad to New iPad?

You will find a number of apps on Google that would claim to successfully transfer data from old Apple devices to new Apple devices. But each of these apps has a catch. Some do not transfer successfully, some are not secure, some are full of ads and some are not free.

However, iMazing does not fall in any of these because iMazing is the best free app to transfer data from old iPad to new iPad. 

Here’s what makes it the best data transfer tool:

Customize your Transfers

With iMazing’s amazing feature, you can choose what to transfer and what to ditch! While transferring data from an old iPad to a new iPad, you will be directed to a screen where you can choose which apps and data you want to transfer to your new iPad. Time to get rid of those useless apps and data and take just what you need!

Clear and Transparent Process

If you have used iTunes, then you know how complicated it is to use! You literally have to google every step of the process whether you are syncing files, creating backups or restoring one. But with iMazing’s user-friendly and easy to understand widget, transferring data from an old device to a new device was never this easy! You can simply just follow the instructions on the app, without needing a how-to guide. Who knew transferring data from an old iPad to a new iPad could be this simple?

Safe and Secure Data Transfers

If you are skeptical about your private data getting jeopardized? Then you are not the only one. Even I was a bit skeptical about sharing my files and transferring data through iMazing. But I read their Security and Privacy page and their transparency and honesty convinced me to trust their app! Here’s why iMazing is the safest and secure data transfer app:

  • All the data stays on your devices.

  • Clear iMazing’s cache and delete backups any time.

  • Secure Apple ID login.

  • /p>
  • Backup encryption allowed and encouraged.

  • Connections are end-to-end encrypted.

  • Promised protection of user’s privacy.

  • User data inaccessible to the company.

This is why I mean it when I say that iMazing is the most secure data transfer app out there!

Do I Need to Purchase a License to Transfer Data from Old iPad to New iPad?

Many features in iMazing are absolutely free for a lifetime! For some premium features, however, you need to buy a license. These features include restoring a backup, installing iOS, transfer to a device, exporting all data, and supervision.

How to Unlock iMazing’s Premium Features?

If you want to unlock iMazing’s Premium Features, you will be needing an activation code. The code can be obtained by purchasing the iMazing license from here

If you are using the same license type, you can use the same activation code to use iMazing on multiple PCs.

iMazing offers the following license types for users:

  • Single License - to activate one computer.
  • Universal License - to activate up to two computers.
  • Family License - to activate up to five computers.

However, the number of Apple devices that you can manage using iMazing is unlimited
