How do I transfer all my content from an iPad 2 to an iPad 3?

Is it simply a case of making a back-up in iTunes? Would that cover music, photos and apps?

Can't you use the cloud now? iCloud maybe

You can if you have enough capacity on it. That standard 5gb won't let you store everything

Yes... a) you get 5GB, and b) who on earth would upload 16 or 32 GB? In one go for a simple transfer that Tunes would do easily?

Thought these were intended to replace computers though so assuming some owners don't have them.
Yeah that capacity is a big issue, guessing it wouldn't actually back up the apps as they have them already just the settings and data. But yeah a full 64gb ipad would be interesting.
Also read it's kind of slow and one user said it usually takes theirs about 7 hours.
Mind you itunes takes longer than that to put my music on ipod

Goes through the options, sync purchases sounds important

Comments in my pending post say that the new one has 1gb less user space which could be an issue if nearly full current one
