    Change iPad Account
    I have an iPad Gen 1 that I want to give to my girlfriend.

    She has her own Apple ID, how do we change the iPad from my Apple ID to her's?

    We realize any apps I had on it will be gone, not a problem.

    Specs:
    Late 2013 27" iMac, iPad 3, iPhone 6s+, iPhone 6+, 3 iPods, El Capitan
    One way would be for her to attach the iPad to her machine, open iTunes, reset the iPad, and then change the name on the iPad to whatever she wishes.

    because your giving it to her and you probably dont want your data on it you should plug it into her computer and open itunes then select the ipad and click restore in the general tab, after that follow the instructions and you can set it up to her personal preferences
