    Assuming you have a standard setup, you need to connect your iPad to your PC and use iTunes to update it. Click on the iPad device in the left hand panel of iTunes and you will see 2 buttons. Update and Restore. Press update and the rest of the process should be automatic.

    Since your iPad is on a very old version of IOS now, the update may run into problems. If this happens, you may need to restore to a factory fresh state, since an upgrade from such an old version may not go as planned! But we will cross that bridge if we come to it

    Good luck.
