I want to transfer my iphone4 contacts to my iPad mini. I have my iphone backup on my computer with iTunes. I connected my iPad and also backed it up to iTunes. When I go to the INFO page and select "sync with" the only option available is Windows and that's not what I want . How do I transfer all my Iphone contacts to the iPad mini ?

Thanks,

richie

Settings > iCloud > log in with your Apple ID if you aren't logged in > turn Contacts on.

Then repeat on the other device.

Are you using the same Apple ID on both?

If so, sync the contacts on each to iCloud.

Note that you can't "sync" to the backup in the manner that you are suggesting.

WOW,

That was easy. Thanks so much. I also synced my calendar and safari bookmarks. I did not turn on email sync since I really wasn't sure what that does.
