With iCloud services, you can sync photos from one iPad to another quickly and wirelessly just by turning on the iCloud Photo Library on your device. All you need to prepare is to connect both of your iPad to a stable Wi-Fi network, sign in to your iPad with the same Apple ID and make sure there is enough iCloud storage space available for you to sync your iPad photos to iCloud. After the preparations, perform the steps below on both of your iPads to wirelessly transfer pictures from iPad to iPad.
Step 1. Open the Settings App on your iPad >Go to [your name] > iCloud > Sign in with your Apple ID.
Step 2. Choose "Photos" > Switch on the "iCloud Photo Library."
Step 3. Open the Photos app on another iPad > Select "All Photos" from the Album > Choose the photos you want to sync > Tap the "Select" option and send them to the shared album.
Note: If iCloud fail to sync photos from iPad to iPad, then you can check these tips to fix the "iCloud photos not syncing" issue.
If you don't have enough free storage space on your iCloud, then you can take the assistance of My Photo Stream to transfer your images. Being different from the iCloud Photo Library, My Photo Stream offers you unlimited storage space. But it has two disadvantages: Only support for syncing your last 30 days and up to 1000 photos. Also, the quality of the images would be compressed during the process of sync.
Step 1. Go to the Settings on your source iPad > [your name] > iCloud.
Step 2. Turn on the iCloud Drive > From the available apps, choose the Photos.
Step 3. Turn on the "My Photo Stream" option. Once your photos are uploaded, you can go to the target iPad and apply the same process to turn on the My Photo Stream. Then all of the recently taken photos will be synced to another iPad.
iTunes is the second-to-last method to transfer photos from iPad to iPad. We don't recommend you to use this method since it is a little bit complex to operate. First of all, you need to sync all photos from iPad to computer via iTunes. Then, sync them to another iPad in the same way.
Step 1. Connect your source iPad to your computer > Launch iTunes on your computer.
Step 2. Tap "Trust this Computer" on your iPad if asked.
Step 3. From the iTunes panel, select your iPad icon > Choose the "Photos" option. From here, you can choose to sync your photos with iTunes.
Step 4. When the process completes, disconnect your iPad and connect the target iPad to your computer. Then, you can repeat the above-listed steps to sync photos to your target iPad.
In this part, we demonstrate a wireless way to transfer photos from one iPad to another iPad. That is by using Email, and all you need is an Email address. With Email, you can transfer one of two photos. If you have a large number of pictures to transfer, you'd better use Method 1.
Step 1. Go to the Photos App on the iPad you want to transfer photos from.
Step 2. Tap the Select option in the upper right corner.
Step 3. Choose the photos you want to share, and then tap the Share button in the lower-left corner.
Step 4. Tap Email under the selected photos. The operations will send you to the Email sending interface.
Step 5. Enter the email address, and check the attached photos files. Finally, tap the "Send" to transfer photos from your iPad to another one.
Step 6. Open the other iPad, and go to Email to check the mail with the photos.
By reading this post, we hope you have transferred all wanted photos from iPad to iPad successfully. As you can see, of all options, EaseUS MobiMover is the easiest and quickest way to get the job done. The next is Airdrop that allows you to transfer less than 500 pictures at once. The third option is iCloud that gives you two options: iCloud Photo Library and My Photo Stream, each of which offers different choices to transfer photos. Following the iCloud is iTunes, which is the official way provided by Apple. And the last option is Email. There is always a way to suit your needs. By the way, all of these methods mentioned can also be applied to transfer photos from iPhone to iPad or share photos on iPhone.
