Moving files to the iPad via iTunes

To add files to your iPad through iTunes on your Mac or PC:

  • Launch iTunes.
  • Connect your iPad to your computer with the USB dock cable, or via WiFi (see https://ipad.redlands.qld.edu.au/content/how-sync-you-ipad-itunes-wifi for more info as to setting up WiFi sync)
  • Select your iPad from the Devices list in the iTunes Library column, then click the Apps tab (along the top).
  • Now scroll to the bottom of the iTunes window to see the File Sharing area.
  • Apps on your iPad that support file transfers appear in the Apps list. Selecting an application’s icon tells iTunes which app you want to transfer files for.
  • Click Add at the bottom of the Documents pane to find the documents you want to copy to your iPad.
  • Now click Sync to copy the documents to your iPad.
