Restore iPad Mini from an iPod Touch Backup

[Copy link]

Post time: 2013-01-05 15:22:22 |Show all posts
I bought my son a new iPad Mini and I am trying to restore it from his iPod Touch backup. I keep getting the error "settings and data from some apps are not compatible with ipad and will not be restored". Nothing is getting restored. Is it possible to restore from an iPod Touch?

Problem solved. It turns out the app data was being copied to the iPad Mini but it wouldn't automatically load the apps. Once I loaded the apps everything was working.

Thanks Diavonex. Everything was looking good until step 16. The estimated time was less than a minute so I knew something was wrong. It did not do steps 21 and 22 and I had nothing to sync for step 23.
