I downloaded the new iOS software on my iPod touch 4th gen. Now it's saying connect to computer with iTunes, I only have a iPad I don't have a laptop is there any way to bypass this

I Downloaded the new iOS software on my iPod touch now when I turn it on it has a USB cord and says connect to computer and iTunes, well the only other

No. You have to connect the iPod to a computer and restore via iTunes.
For how to restore:
iTunes: Restoring iOS software
To restore from backup see:
iOS: How to back up
If you restore from iCloud backup the apps will be automatically downloaded. If you restore from iTunes backup the apps and music have to be in the iTunes library since synced media like apps and music are not included in the backup of the iOS device that iTunes makes.
You can redownload iTunes purchases by:
Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store
Find a friend or go to an Apple store.

  • New IPod Touch 4th Gen isn't being recognized by my computer or itunes.

    I got a new IPod Touch yesterday and I am finally getting the time to sit down and set everything up and when I plugged it in it makes the charging sound but itunes is not finding it and neither is my computer. I've been messing with it for hours now and at one point my computer thought the IPod was a camera. I've tried updating itunes to the newest version, uninstaling/reinstaling the drivers, even tried updating the IPod to iOS 6 thinking that might help but still nothing. What am I missing?

  • When I click on the button to download the new IOS software, I get a message saying that all the items on my iTouch will be removed.  Will I have to reload everything after updating the software?

    When I click on the button to download the new IOS software, I get a message saying that all the items on my iTouch will be removed.  Will I have to reload everything after updating the software?  Because I had to have my hard drive wiped a while back, I have items on my iTouch that are not in my iTunes.  Is there a way to copy everything on the iTouch into iTunes, if necessary, before I load the new software?

    It is possible to transfer purchases from your iPod back into iTunes before updating the OS. If you had any CDs from your personal collection, these you have to put back into iTunes manually. Hope this helps you & good luck!

    What version of the Mac OS X are you running. Go to the Apple in the upper left corner and select About This Mac and post the version.

  • I just bought a new Macbook Pro and loaded all my info from My old Macbook...now i can't remember for the life of me my Admin Password 9which i created 3 years ago)...is there ANY WAY to bypass this on my new Macbook Pro and begin again...?

    I assume that you don't have the installation discs, so:
    1. Reboot
    2. Hold command + s key down after you hear the chime.
    3. When you get a text prompt enter in these terminal commands to create a brand new admin account (hitting return after each line):
    (Type these commands very carefully)
    mount -uw /
    rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone
    shutdown -h now
    4. You will go through the setup process again, create a new admin account, login to it and then change your existing account password or whatever else you need to do. You can delete the account you made in this process, or not.

  • Ipad2 will freezes when downloading the new ios software update

    ipad2 will freezes when downloading the new ios software update.  When i hold the Base Button and Sleep button together it just does the same thing.  Tried to plug it in directly to my iMAC and it says it can't help me b/c I have a passcode lock.  Any solutions?

    We don't know, and no one will know until Apple has announced it. Furthermore, speculation is forbidden here.

  • I can not dowload the new updated software for my Ipod touch 4G. When i do I get an error message that says Network connection has timed out. I have done the trouble shooting steps. Downloaded the latest version of Itunes, and checked network connection

    Disabling the computer's antivirus and firewall during the download and update usually resolves the timeout error.

  • I'm new at this but I am hoping someone can help me.I have recently been away for 5 weeks and my Tom Tom required updating.When I clicked to update it required a pc.As I didn't have access to a pc it wouldn't work is there any way to do this without a pc?

    Hi, I'm new at this but I am hoping someone can help me.I have recently been away for 5 weeks and my Tom Tom required updating.When I clicked to update it, it required a pc. As I didn't have access to a pc it wouldn't work is there any way to do this without a pc?  I was without this app for 3 weeks!  Thanks, Lea

    The process to update your Tom Tom is a big data file, you will need to be connected to a Wi-Fi network for it to download.  If will take about an hour.

  • I shifted from a windows to a mac.. I want to add songs to my ipod tpuch 4th gen.. but if i try to sync with itunes it says my songs will be replaced by the new songs.. Is there any way that i can have my previous data safe??

    i shifted from a windows to a mac.. I want to add songs to my ipod tpuch 4th gen.. but if i try to sync with itunes it says my songs will be replaced by the new songs.. Is there any way that i can have my previous data safe??

    Your iPod can only be synced with one computer at a time.  If you try to sync it with a new computer/iTunes library, it will replace the contents of the iPod with whatever is in the new library. You should probably disable the autosync functionality first by going to Edit -> Preferences, clicking the Devices tab, and enabling the prevent iPods,iPhones, and iPads from automatically syncing option.
    Before doing anything else,  authorize the new computer with your iTunes Account.  In iTunes, choose Store -> Authorize This Computer and enter in the correct credentials. Either copy a backup file from your old computer to your new one or create a new backup of your iPod in iTunes before letting it sync.
    Then right->click on your iPod Touch from under the Devices section in the left hand pane of iTunes and choose Backup. You might also want to take a look at this article to see what it all included in the backup.
    iOS: How to back up
    Now onto synced content such as music, videos, photos, etc.  For iTunes purchases you can copy them back into iTunes by choosing File -> Transfer Purchases.  For all other nonpurchased iTunes content, see this excellent user tip from another forum member turingtest2 outlining the different methods and software available to help you copy content from your iPod back to your PC and into iTunes.
    Recovering your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device
    Once the backup has been made and all other synced content such as music, videos, and photos are back in your iTunes library, restore your iPod from that backup you made earlier.  Here is more on backing up and restoring your iPod.
    iTunes: Backing up, updating, and restoring iOS software
    If you do happen to lose any purchased content, you can always redownload it from the iTunes Store again at no cost via iCloud.  See this article for information.

  • Itunes says that the version of software on my ipod touch 3rd gen is up to date, but IOS 5 is avaliable. I have checked for software updates for days but it keeps saying that 4.2.1 is the current version. Why cant i get IOS 5?

    because you do not have a 3rd generation device. The OS Version says so , otherwise you would be at 4.3.5 minimum and also Itunes is also always correct in determining if you have the latest OS ( if not it fetches the newest from Apple's Servers ) . And because a 2nd generation iPod stops at 4.2.1 you can't get the newest OS, because your device is old. Buy a new iPod , they have iOS5 preinstalled.

  • My ipod touch 4th gen. will not allow me to adjust volume with my speaker, but will with headphones. How do i fix this?

    My ipod touch 4th gen. will not allow me to adjust volume with my speaker, but will with headphones. How do i fix this?

    - Try cleaning out/blowing out the headphone jack. Try inserting/removing the plug a dozen times or so. There is a little switch in the headphone jack that disconnects the speaker when the headphone jack is inserted.
    Try the following to rule out a software problem
    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost
    Reset iPod touch: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Reset all settings
    Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.
    All your preferences and settings are reset. Information (such as contacts and calendars) and media (such as songs and videos) aren’t affected.
    - Restore from backup
    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.
    - Make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store. Seems you have a bad headphone jack or other hardware problem

  • Using Apple IOS Numbers on my iPod Touch 4th gen, where would I find... ummm... let's say b200?

    Using Apple IOS Numbers on my iPod Touch 4th gen,
    where would I find... ummm... let's say b200??
    I use the row numbers and column alphabet all the time, and yet they don't appear on the IOS5 version of Numbers.
    This is kinda short-sighted, isn't it? On the desktop version they show up just by clicking on a cell.

    Yeah, we in the real world call it stupid design.
    I discovered a real stupid, stupid, stupid way of seeing the header columns and the row numbers. You need to select a cell, and double tap it and the keypad pops up, at the top of the keypad window is a black wide tool button-bar with "42", "a clock symbol ", a "T" and an "="  The "42" stands for numbers, stars dollar signs, ±, etc. The "Clock symbol" is to put in days, hours, minutes... that sort of thing. The "T" is for words. AND the "=" is for formulas and stuff. HOWever, when you selct the "=" the column header (ABC...etc) and the Row numerators appear! Done so you CAN select certain column and rows to include those certain cells for calculations.
    What a crappy design, right? Must be an engineer without any human interface design skills whatsoever who designed THIS Numbers for ios GUI... you have to hunt through crap to find the simplest of spreadsheet information. A real human interface designer would have made it easy option (for aesthetic reasons or "save space" Hah. Save space on a spreadsheet... why do you think they call them SPREADsheets anyway?).
    And while we are on the Stupid, Engineer-Minded GUI, whose idea was to make you shake your ios device to "UNDO"?  There is plenty of space where the title "Spreedsheets"  and 3 toolbar buttons are located at the top of the spreadsheet workspace for a simple ø <--(circle with a line symbol)
    This Numbers for IOS needs a big retooling.

    All the iOS devices compatible (iPhone 4 and later, iPad 2 and later, and 5G iPod touch) with iOS 7 have at least 512 MB of memory (RAM). The 4G iPod only has 256 MB
