B. iPad Troubleshooting and Care > Update the iPad’s Software

Update the iPad’s Software

Updating the iPad’s internal software—which Apple occasionally does to fix bugs and add features—is much easier than it used to be, thanks to iTunes. No matter which iPad, iPod, or iPhone model you have, iTunes 9 and later handles all software updating chores for Apple’s devices.

To make sure you have the latest version of the iPad software, follow these steps:

  1. Connect your iPad to the computer and select it in the Source list.

  2. On the Summary tab, click the “Check for Update” button in the Version area (circled below). If your iPad is up to date, iTunes tells you so.

  3. If iTunes finds new iPad software, you’ll be prompted to download it. Click the Downloading icon in the Source pane to monitor your download progress. Sometimes iTunes will have already downloaded the new iPad software. In that case, just click the Update button in the iTunes main window.
