My son has spent ages building his Minecraft: Pocket Edition world on my iPad. However, the iPad was stolen.

Is there any other way he can access his world from another iPad or laptop, etc?

did you backup your ipad? – DropDeadSander - EUW Aug 28 '14 at 8:16
This looks more like a Ask Different question. Answers will be barely related to videogames. – SysDragon Aug 29 '14 at 6:33
@SysDragon look at the upvotes how many people agree that this is a good question for this site – DropDeadSander - EUW Aug 29 '14 at 7:35

Restore on new iPad

If you are going to buy a new iPad, and backed up the stolen one you can easily restore the old backup and you will have the world back again. but you have to install all the apps (including minecraft again)

What does iTunes backup

  • ...
  • App Store app data (except the app itself, its tmp, and Caches folder)
  • App settings, preferences, and data, including documents
  • ...

I recommend this anyways because it will be identical to you old iPad.

Save the old backup to a external storage, because it might happen that itunes overwrites the backup and everything is lost.

Restore on PC

You didn't even watch the video you're linking to? How is that better than what OP could have done himself? – Chase Sandmann Jan 30 '15 at 17:26
