I just bought a new iPad and I’m wondering if I can move Clash of Clans from the old to the new and save the progress. I spent a fair bit of money into it and I don't want to lose it.

Extracted from the Clash of Clans FAQ:

Can I continue my game on a new device?

Yes you can, but it requires the use of GameCenter. The only way to transfer your account to a new device is to have the original village linked to a Game Center account. Login to that Game Center account on your new device and you will prompted to load your previous village.

This post which requires a login, has some helpful instructions on setting up your game on a new device.


It doesn't look like you can transfer In-app purchases between devices:


Subscriptions and replenishable In-App Purchase cannot be transferred or synced to another iOS device. Non-replenishable In-App Purchases and auto-renewing subscriptions can be transferred to another iOS device authorized with your iTunes Store account. For example, if you transfer a game from an iPhone to an iPod touch, only the game levels will sync over, the extra ammo and experience points will not be transferred.

Re-downloading In-App purchases for free depends on the App:

If you lose your In-App Purchases because apps were accidentally deleted, or if you had to restore your device without a backup, you may be able to download some of your in app purchases again for free. Not all In-App Purchases are eligible for free download again.

Replenishable In-App Purchases and subscriptions cannot be downloaded again for free, and must be repurchased. Examples include but are not limited to: extra ammo, additional health, extra experience points, or other one-time services. Non-replenishable In-App Purchases and auto-renewing subscriptions can be downloaded again for free. Examples include: bonus game levels, a map/city guide, a daily news subscription, or other recurring services. To download an In-App Purchase again, you must download it from within the installed app using the same iTunes Store account name for the original In-App Purchase.


Game center is the best way try it out ok hope this help

    Trying it out and then see it working will not really help the asker. How do you propose he should proceed without running the risk of losing progress data?
