My friend was given an iPad, it is in the original persons name , so she kept it that way, but lost all the passwords. I tried to start a Facebook post for her, but Facebook App wants the Apple ID and password which she doesn’t have. What is the best way to proceed here? First to fix the iPad so it’s in her name, then she can apply for an Apple ID and get a Facebook page. Thanks for helping.

Sorry for my delay – if you still have the question, see if this video helps. It shows resetting an iPhone, but it should work the same on an iPad.
