How to Skip the iPad Backup in iTunes


If you want to sync your iPad's music, movies and apps using iTunes but don't want to wait for your device to back up, you can skip the backup via the iTunes software. Skipping the iPad's data backup, while not recommended regularly, can save you a great deal of time if you need to sync items between your PC and iPad as quickly as possible. You can learn how to skip the iPad's backup process by following a few steps.

  • Connect your iPad to your PC using its included USB data cable.

  • Start the iTunes application by double-clicking its icon on your desktop or by clicking "Start" > "Programs" and selecting "iTunes." Allow a few seconds for iTunes to recognize your iPad and begin a backup. The information screen at the center top of the screen will tell you when a backup is in process.

  • Click the circular "x" that shows up in the iTunes information screen to kill the backup process. iTunes will then move on to its next task, which is likely a sync between your PC and iPad.
