    I'm trying to set up a new iPad with the features and capabilities of my old one. I used my Apple ID to download the apps, books, etc but I can't figure out how to set up the new iPad with items such as passwords for Netflix, email, etc. The old one knows these effortlessly but is there a way to get these on to the new one or is it necessary to do it manually?

    Are you using a Mac or a PC?
    Do you have/use iCloud?

    If you back up to iCloud, or to iTunes on the old iPad, when you setup the new one you have the option of restoring from the backup which will restore many of your settings.
