    Are we Stuck with IOS 5?

    My iPad 1 has been nothing but a pain in the proverbial since upgrading. I wish I'd stuck with IOS 4.

    Since the upgrade it only works when it feels like it. The sound, music, keyboard clicks, etc work intermittently. As I'm typing this I'm getting sporadic keyboard clicks. I also get annoying keyboard lag in Safari and Mail which I never got before.

    I tried all the usual resets and restores and triple checked my settings. But it still plays up.

    How can Apple release such buggy operating system???

    I've gone right off their products!

    Have a look at Rich's troubleshooting guide. You'll find that most Members have nothing but praise for iOS5. But, to answer your original question, it's not possible to return to iOS4.

    Sorry to hear of your troubles, how frustrating. But as Tim points out tens of millions of folks (including yours truly) are using iOS 5 on their iPads, iPhones and iPod Touches without any issues. That's not to say I might have done a few things differently and I hope they'll make some changes and tweaks going forward, but overall things are good and your iPad shouldn't be giving you that kind of trouble.

    You mentioned having done a few things. Did you actually try resetting it? The reason I ask is some folks mistake "restarting" for "resetting". Restarting , turning the iPad off and back on by holding the Sleep/wake switch on the edge of the iPad until the close slider shows up on the screen, shutting it down and then restarting it can actually fix things sometimes, but other times it takes more. So you may have already tried it, but if not, try resetting your iPad:
    • Reset the iPad: You can do this by pressing the Home button and the Sleep/wake button on the top the iPad's case and holding them down together for at least 10 seconds, until you see the Apple logo. The iPad should then reset itself. The boot up process will take longer than the restart. More here:
    iPhone, iPad, iPod touch: Turning off and on (restarting) and resetting

    If it still has problems I'd look at restoring it either to an existing backup or to factory settings and then set things up again. More here:

    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1414

    If that still doesn't do it, it's time to either visit your local Apple store or contact them. They have first-class customer assistance and should be able to get things sorted out.

    Hope that helps and let us know how it goes!

    Thankyou,
    I've just restored it again on iTunes but I still get no sound.

    If you look carefully at the photos you can see there's volume slider?

    Well, this is certainly a new one on me!! I've never seen "Volume not available" before.

    I am going to go away and think about this one - fascinating (for me, not for you!)

    Hi Tim,
    It's working again now. I toggled the 'sound check' checkbox (music settings) 'on' and 'off' a couple of times and it fixed it!

    I don't know what 'sound check' does but toggling it did the trick :-)

    Sorry you're having this issue. My iPad 1 upgraded fine, so I think you had a corrupid install.

    Hi,
    It's all working fine now although I do get a time lag between typing characters and them appearing on the screen on web pages. But I think Tim said this could be a wifi issue?

    I'd be interested if anyone else experiences the same lag?
