Helping out a friend with her ipad 1 upgrade to iOS 5 but on my system not hers...
Hello everyone. I will surely be visiting the musician section often now that I discovered this forum.
Anyway here is the deal: a friend of mine is visiting and although she got the iPad 1 forever, she never installed one app and the few ones was done by her daughter at her friends. No one remembers the password, apple ID etc.. She mostly use it for email and surfing and YouTube, etc... I am planning to reset the device from scratch and start over so she can create a profile, etc... I want to upgrade her iPad to version 5 also. The thing is after deleting everything on her iPad I would need to plug it to my machine on my iTunes to do the up to date transfers. I haven't touched her iPad yet.
Can I update her iPad to iOS 5 on my PC (after i deleted everything) while not associating her machine with my iTunes profile or does she need to do it on her own laptop at her home? does she need to go to an Apple store for this to be done?
I hope my question is clear enough. Thank you!
Black iPad 1 morphed into white iPad 2...
Thank you for your prompt reply. Great surprise with her iPad. Her daughter bought a new iPad 2 from best buy. That's the one she brought up. iOS 5 is already installed, the system is only asking for a 5.1.1 update. Everything else will be smooth selling... She will sell the iPad 1.
