HT201210 Error when trying to update my ipad

I got an error when trying to update my ipad saying it could not be updated and gave an error 6.  Has anyone else had this happen and how did you rectify it?

First, try a system reset.  It cures many ills and it's quick, easy and harmless...
Hold down the on/off switch and the Home button simultaneously until you see the Apple logo.  Ignore the "Slide to power off" text if it appears.  You will not lose any apps, data, music, movies, settings, etc.
If the Reset doesn't work, try a Restore.  Note that it's nowhere near as quick as a Reset.  It could take well over an hour!  Connect via cable to the computer that you use for sync.  From iTunes, select the iPad/iPod and then select the Summary tab.  Follow directions for Restore and be sure to say "yes" to the backup.  You will be warned that all data (apps, music, movies, etc.) will be erased but, as the Restore finishes, you will be asked if you wish the contents of the backup to be copied to the iPad/iPod.  Again, say "yes."
At the end of the basic Restore, you will be asked if you wish to sync the iPad/iPod.  As before, say "yes."  Note that that sync selection will disappear and the Restore will end if you do not respond within a reasonable time.  If that happens, only the apps that are part of the IOS will appear on your device.  Corrective action is simple -  choose manual "Sync" from the bottom right of iTunes.
If you're unable to do the Restore, go into Recovery Mode per the instructions here.

  • I keep getting "the network connection could not be established" error message when trying to update my iPads and iPhone to iOS 5.1

    I keep getting "the network connection could not be established" message when trying to update my iPad, iPad2 and iPhone4 devices using either my iMac or MacBook.  The Macs and iOS devices are apparently working correctly otherwise.  Problem started about a day ago when I connected one of the iPads to my iMac and iTunes notified my of an update for the device.  I tried and got the above message.  Tryied other iPad2 and iPhone4 and get the same message.  Also, get same message when trying to update using the MacBook. My system SW is 10.7.3 on the iMac and 10.6.8 on MacBook.  iTunes is version 10.6. Have gone thru the check list of things to check and have re-started. Would appreciate any ideas. Thanks.

    Another user named Springbk posted a fix that worked for me as I was having the same problem today:
    I Changed my DNS settings to OpenDNS
    On a Mac go to SYSTEM PREFERENCES>NETWORK>ADVACED>DNS
    change DNS by adding ( + )
    208.67.222.222
    then
    208.67.220.220
    click okay/apply after. then try the update. after the update, just delete the two open DNS server numbers. should revert back to your old one.

  • Error when trying to update or download any app

    I'm getting an Error when trying to update or download any app from Mac App Store
    Every time I try to update xCode to version 6.2 but I get this error :
    The server gave an error during download: 503 Service Unavailable.
    So I tried to download a random app from the App Store but I got the same error message.
    So any advices ?

    Hello HusseinAlBehary,
    Sorry to hear your troubles updating and downloading apps from the Mac App Store. Based on when you were doing that, it looks like the Mac App Store was experiencing difficulties. It is not currently so you should be able to upgrade with out issues now. If you experience this in the future, look at the page below to start you on figuring out if it is something on your end or Apple’s end.

  • When trying to update my iPad 2 to iOS 7 I keep getting the message that it has stopped because the file is full.  There is plenty of room on the iPad.  It also says to check the settings.  What do I do now?

    When trying to update my iPad on iTunes I keep getting a message that the download has stopped because the file is full.  There is plenty of space on the iPad.  Also, the message says to check the settings.  What am I supposed to check in the settings?  What do I do now?

    I have the same problem. It is only with tv shows and only with programs I have downloaded after the software update.
    Apple support sent me the above link too....but it doesn't solve the problem...my computer is authorized and the content is in my library and will play on my Mac air, but it will not sync the tv shows, it keeps saying my computer isn't authorized for it.
    No answers here, but you are definitely not alone with this issue.

    Hope you are having a lovely afternoon today! I'm about ready to go bobo....I have an early meeting, and I don't want to oversleep! The nice part is that I work remotely, so I only have to wake up 15 minutes or so before the meeting.... I don't even use an alarm clock anymore (really, my iPhone alarm, which is much more pleasant), unless I have to get up at 6:30 or something....

    Errors when trying to update cs6 13.4 (I think) on Mac osx 10.8.4.
    I have a purchased copy. Downloaded patch which also does not work. Very frustrating.

    is that photoshop cs6?
    if yes, and you're trying to update to 13.1.2 from 13.0.1.2, uninstall ps cs6.  reinstall using adobe application manager.  close aam immediately after ps cs6 completes its installation.
    open ps cs6, click help>updates and select 13.1.2. do not update to 13.0.1.2, first.
