MobileTrans is an all-round application designed to make the transfer of files between gadgets smooth, easy, and fast. It can run with no lagging on all Android, iOS, and Windows devices.

Step 3: Select the iBooks and Start the transferring process

Next, from the Source iPad, choose the iBooks you wish to transfer to the new iPad and tap on the Start button. Ensure the connection remains stable throughout the transfer process.

To avoid multiple copies of the same book on the Destination iPad, check the ‘Clear data before copy’ option before tapping on Start. It ensures existing copies get deleted from the iPad.

Step 4: End of transfer

Once the transfer is complete, preview the iBooks on the Destination iPad to ensure all the selected data got copied. You can then disconnect and read on your new iPad.

Note: the amount of time taken to finish the process depends on the size of the files

Part 2: Transfer iBooks from iPad to iPad with iTunes

Step 1: Connect the old iPad to computer

First of all, create a connection between your old iPad and the computer. Then, launch iTunes on the comp and click the iPad, followed by Summary.
