I would like to loan my iPad Air (iOS 8.3) to a friend and give him a clean device (without my apps and any personal data). After getting my iPad back, I would like to restore the whole configuration and have all my data again. What is the preferred procedure to do it?
Probably here's what I should do at the beginning:
- Backup the device to a PC computer using iTunes
- Erase the device according to the guide here: https://support.apple.com/kb/HT201351 (sign out of iCloud and erase all content).
But what then? My friend should create his own iCloud account and use it to configure the device? And if I want the iPad back, then I should erase it again and restore the backup from my computer? Will it work?
