The problem would come with this trade, which reminds you of what to do before selling the iPad. Now, with this guidance, you can be assured of selling your iPad.
Step 1. Do Backup for your iPad
To do iCloud backup or iTunes backup for your iPad has to be done unless you don’t care for all data on your iPad or the data is useless. If you need some introduction of backing up your iPad, the motheds follow:
1. Do iTunes backup for your iPad .
2. iCloud backup with your iPad .
3. Backup files to PC via iPhone Transfer.
Of course, if you just want to get back a part of a specific data to the PC backing up, I recommend iPhone Transfer to complete the transmission, because it transfers them with simple steps and runs from iOS 6 to iOS 9, including iPhone, iPad and iPod.
