I just bought a iPad 1st gen from Apple, with ios5 on it, I so far love it, and for the cost of the iPad 2 basic I got the larger iPad 1 with 64GB and 3G! I am new to Apple products as the iPad is my 1st Apple purchase. However Loved it enough Im typing this post on my new MacBook Air 13"! I have completely left PC behind now. Proud Apple customer now and going forward.
lerx what is meant by setting up device as new VS restoring from backup? Still pending update as need to update from downloading to pc anyway due to slow connection
Ok first I am computer savvy ....not. I have original ipad downloaded upgrade ios 5 to my windows 7 laptop last night (took 3 hours). said to plug in ipad and follow instructions....well the only think that comes up when i try that is the backingup ipad and that has been going on for several hours and nothing is going farther..... I need your help please
can you tell me how to do that without backingup ipad starting automatically?
I run iOS 5.01 and it works fine. Although safari crashes every now and again. It's worth it for gestures lol
I always do the upgrades when they come out and so far have had no problems at all .
I haven't yet upgraded to IOS5, mostly because I'm lazy and I just hate doing anything with iTunes.
But now I read numerous reports of IOS5 being not such a good idea for the iPad 1, specifically that memory problems cause Safari to crash very frequently. If its true, I would be very unhappy and would not want to upgrade. I see enough Safari crashes as it is...
Anyone claim that Safari crashes LESS with IOS5 on the iPad1?
Woohoo finally managed to update my iPad, just exploring the changes, confused by messages area, but so far love tabs although keep trying to click the windows area to change windows, love the tabs!
I have iPad 1st gen. Trying to upgrade to iOS5 but keep getting stuck "backing up" and left it alone for 24 hours and still backing up?
I do not have that many apps still have 26GB of free sapce. I have read some threads here with similar issues.
Would it be best just to restore to original settings and then try to upgrade? I do have the latest iTunes and have good broadband speed.. It only took 30 minutes to download.
