if i want to buy a new ipad, how can i transfer my info from the old ipad

I dropped my IPAd and it seems to have broken the on/off button
I assume the light will burn out...eventually...as it is on now...
So if I get a new one...how do I get the info on it

    Depends on when you last backed up your old iPad. All purchases and downloads will automatically be stored on your Apple account, but other files like Notes, pictures, and maybe even contacts will probably be lost.

    If you can still use the iPad, just go to Settings, iCloud, Storage and Backup and press Back Up Now. Although, iCloud automatically backs up to iCloud every time the device is plugged in, locked, and connected to a Wi-Fi network. So it is possible you will be alright.
