How Do I Erase All Data On My Apple IPad 2?
By Dave Taylor
Psyched to get my new iPad and, even better, I'm selling my older iPad 2 to my brother-in-law. All good, but I need you to tell me how to erase everything on the iPad before I give it to him. I know that there's a simple sequence for reformatting / erasing everything on an iPhone, but can I do the same on my iPad?

An iPad Mini would be a direct response to Amazon's bestselling Kindle Fire, Barnes and Noble's Nook, as well as other 7-inch Android Tablets.

One can pretend this iPad has a 7.85 inch screen, to visualize an iPad Mini:
