I bought a new iPad. I forgot to turn off “Find my iPad,” on the old one beforehand. I had already backed all up on iCloud. After I loaded my new device, I reset and cleared all content on my old one. A prompt came up asking me to sign in my Apple ID. Not sure if it automatically disabled Find My iPad. But I want to sell the old one and I have no idea if Find my iPad was disabled..So now I have no idea what to do.

    Do you still have access to your old iPad? Does it show up in Find My?

Apple has a nice checklist that covers this in detail.

Depending on what you set up and who has possession, the steps needed vary. One thing, you don’t need to give anyone your passcode or password - they can erase the device without any of that.
