1st Gen iPad refurb from Apple. I bought it because the one we have is a Gen 2 that I can't move the OS past 7.x because the newer OS is sluggish on the 2s and even some 3s. Ok... not a complete brick... but there lots of reports the old architecture can't handle the new beast. Plus Gen 1 iPads stopped at iOS 6 .. so it's a matter of time for the iPad 2s.
This thing is sleek. Thinner, same size screen, yet smaller bezel/border. The screen is a hair thinner one the wide side? Hard to tell w/o looking up specs. Also got the official Apple leather cover that makes the iPad start/sleep automatically. Retina screen is badass. I have seen the retinas on our phones... but you can really appreciate on the larger real estate.
So.. Reboot... I may have a couple of questions on getting some settings ported over. I am not doing a restore due to some previous issues with some data/movies not being recognized and are "lost data". As in the iPad 2 doesn't see them... but I can tell they are there from the data usage bar.
Yeah.. but it then restores the whole shebang and I want to start fresh on the apps and data and add them in one at a time. The games and apps should be in the cloud. Don't want to lose my daughters game data. I guess when it comes to OS prefs and tweaks I'll just do that by hand.
I'll figure it out.
/Where is Terminal on this damn thing anyways...???
That's what I was going to do... download previously purchased apps and install. Otherwise... what do i do about the movies that aren't linked anymore? I can't remember exactly... maybe a HD failure or something... restore.. w/e, but their were movies listed previously and then the links/icons weren't there but the movies were still on the iPad. I could tell from the usage bar.
