I have two iPads, and want to give my adult daughter one. I don't want to clear it completely, leaving games and such on there for her. I need to clear off the mail and photos. Will this do that to my new iPad with the same mail and photos?
You could go through Settings and delete all the accounts under Mail, Contacts, Calendars, sign out of iCloud, iTunes and App Store. This should cover most of it. I think you're better off erasing the device and setting it up fresh though. You can always re-install the apps. If you use Family Sharing, she'll be able to install anything you've ever bought from iTunes.
