My wife just ordered the new iPAD to replace the one she got this past December.

I will "inherit" her original IPAD, which isn't really old. I would like to "reset" the device back to its original delivered condition. Someone told me that they thought ITUNES was the way to accomplish the reset.

Is this correct?

Thanks.

Yep, that's how I was told to do it from inside the iPad itself in the settings panel.
