Upgrading to iOS 5

Hello all,

I have combed through websites that show you how to upgrade your ipad from iOS4 to iOS5 and I found this to be the most helpful.

Follow this link to find out about 5 things to do with your iPad before upgrading to iOS5: http://www.gottabemobile.com/2011/10/11/5-things-to-do-before-you-upgrade-to-ios-5/

Also, follow this link to find out step-by-step what to do to upgrade your iPad to iOS5: http://www.gottabemobile.com/2011/10/12/how-to-upgrade-to-ios-5/

If you have vital information or paid apps on your iPad be sure to back them up. Don’t assume anything until you know it is backed up. Do not unplug your device until the upgrade is complete, you will be prompted to do so when the upgrade is complete.

This should be a fairly smooth process, however, if you have difficulties be sure to call Apple or follow this link to the Apple Express Lane Support: https://expresslane.apple.com/GetproductgroupList.do?PRKEYS=PL133,PL220,PL113&locale=en_US
