Ok....! So my neighbour has an iPad 2, that was (about a year ago he thinks) sync'd to iTunes on his laptop. That laptop has suffered a painful death and he's just carried on using his iPad. He's now got a new laptop and would like to use that to now add content to the iPad, but is obviously worried that if he syncs it (for example to add some photos), it will wipe his iPad and he'll end up with nothing on it except for the standard "out of the box" apps. Presumably, he could then just sign in to the App Store on the iPad and re download the apps so that's not an issue, but he has progress in some games and stuff saved in some apps (I think one of them is called "Things") If nothing else, he's safe as he has an up to date iCloud backup, but how can he now add stuff to the iPad (photos being the one he's really interested in). Hopefully that makes sense! Cheers gurus!
