  • HT4623 My ipad does not have the software update as an option. Is there another way to install os updates

    My ipad does not have the software update as an option. Is there any other way to update the operating system? Thank you

    Your tag line shows iOS 6. If you are running iOS 6 you should have it in the settings. Your tag line also shows iPad - so if you have the iPad 1 - you can only update to iOS 5.1.1 and you need a computer running iTunes.
    So if You do not have iOS 5 on your iPad you have to update by using a computer via the latest version of iTunes. You can connect the iPad to your computer and launch iTunes. Select the iPad on the left side under the devices heading. Click on the Summary Tab on the right. Click on Check for Update.
    After you update to iOS 5 or later, you will have Software Update in you settings and can update via WiFi OTA.

  • HT4623 My iPad does not have a "software update" tab

    My iPad does not have a software update tab in general. How do I update?

    The Settings > General > Software Update option only appears when you have iOS 5+ installed, with iOS 4 you will need to do the update via your computer's iTunes.
    Connect the iPad to your computer's iTunes and copy any purchases off the iPad to your computer via File > Transfer Purchases. You may also want to copy photos and any important documents off the iPad as well e.g. via the file sharing section at the bottom of the device's apps tab when connected to iTunes, via wifi, email, dropbox etc - they should be included in the backup, but it's best to have a copy of them outside of the backup just in case. You can then force a backup of the iPad by right-clicking the iPad 'Device' on the left-hand side of iTunes and selecting 'Backup'.
    Then start the update by selecting the iPad on the left-hand side of iTunes, and on the Summary tab on the right-hand side clicking the Check For Updates button
    Updating to iOS 5+ : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4972
    Your iPad should be updated to iOS 6.0.1 (which is the only version that is 'signed' by Apple), so you will lose the built-in YouTube app and the Maps app will change - but google have app versions in the store

    If you are currently running an iOS lower than 5.0, connect to your computer & click on the "Update your device using iTunes".
    Tip - You may need to disable your firewall and anitvirus software temporarily.  Then download and install the iOS update. Be sure and backup your iPad before the iOS update. After you update to iOS 5/6.x, the next update can be installed via wifi (i.e., not connected to your computer).

  • How do I disable the Plugin Update tab when I start Firefox?

    Whenever I start Firefox, a second tab entitled "Plugin Update" opens. I do not recall enabling it anywhere, and I would like to disable it, but I do not know how. Might you be able to point me in the right direction?

    Type '''about:config''' in the URL bar and hit Enter. <br />
    ''If you see the warning, you can confirm that you want to access that page.''
    Pref = '''plugins.update.notifyUser''' -- if it shows as True, double-click that pref to toggle it to '''False'''

  • HT4890 I do not see photos on my icloud.  When I check my general settings on my IPhone, it shows that I have the photostream turned on.  Where would I find them on ICloud?

    When I log into ICloud.com on my computer, I do not see the photos icon.  When I checked my general settings on my IPhone4S, it shows that I have PhotoStream turned on the ICloud.  What am I doing wrong?  When I had updated to the IOS 6 on my IPhone, I lost several of my pictures on the phone, but figured they would be on ICloud, but can't find any pictures.  Help as I am not very tech savvy!

    To use Find my iPad go to iCloud.com and sign in.
    You cannot access this feature using the iCloud control panel.
