    wiping/clearing ipads
    How do you go about wiping all apps as well as bookmarks for websites, cookies and all history of websites visited, including passwords? I'm going to be giving my ipad to someone else and I want to make sure absolutely nothing is on it.

    To set back to factory default as when first purchased, go to settings, general, reset and select erase all content and settings.

    Will that eliminate software and internet browsers already on there? What exactly will it leave behind? I want to only eliminate personal apps and info as well as not allowing anyone using it later to see websites visited, including passwords for those websites.

    Yes, that is the answer.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
