Hi all, my mom has an ancient (6th gen) iPod touch that’s on its last legs. The battery life is nonexistent, and the only way it works is if it’s plugged into power. I finally convinced her that she needed to get something newer so we went with the 10th gen iPad (Fall 2022).
For some inexplicable, confounding reason, everything (all Apps, Messages, etc.) has transferred to the iPad via iCloud with two exceptions: Contacts and FaceTime call history. Why on earth? The Apple IDs on both devices are the same, Facetime is using the same Apple ID, so what gives? What arcane settings am I missing?
Well, if the contacts are not on iCloud then how to get them there? If the source of all of them that I’m seeing on the iPod under contacts is in fact her Google account, then there should be a way of importing them into iCloud, right? Or, on the iPad itself, create a list that reaches over to Google’s list and brings those over.
