posting for my wife
she's not a forum-type person and expects me to have all the answers. i'm getting her an ipad and workin' it so it's ready for xmas....so, HI!!!
i've been a staunch pc guy all my life but i must say, visiting the apple store was a pleasant discovery. the friendliness of the ipad is very nice. i think she'll like her ipad!
anyway, i started the ipad update to 5.x and i must say it's been annoyingly slow to complete. it is currently in the middle of restoring the apps i sinstalled and i'm kinda worried she might wake up and see this in the middle of restoration
WHAT IS UP WITH THIS UPDATE. it seems to have done a virtual reinstall of EVERYTHING on the ipad. wow,,,what a long time. 15 minutes now and it's 35% done installing the apps,,,AND MY WIFE WAKES UP IN 15 MINUTES.

Hi and welcome to the Forum!
This update was a particularly large one, but you'll love all the new features that come with it. I sure hope it finishes on time! So did you throw a blanket on it as Gabriel suggested? Lol. I'm sure your wife is just going to love it and you for buying her this wonderful piece of technology.
A very informative thread from which you will learn many tips and shortcuts for the IPad.

hi again. back with a question or two
just a few questions i think might be hard to search for.
after connecting the ipad, and right clicking device/ipad in itunes, there are a few options i wanted to ask about.
1...what is the "backup" option for??? when the ipad is auto-synced to itunes, ISN'T IT ALREADY BACKED UP SOMEWHERE ON THE COMPUTER?
2...on a similar note, i was watching a youtube demo by this kid who was explaining how to backup apps to the computer. it was standard stuff as he simply drag/dropped all his apps on view in itunes/library/apps to a folder he created on his computer. AGAIN, same question,, why is he bothering? aren't they already backed up in itunes? if not, is itunes functioning as a go-between of some sort?
3...lastly...when i "delete" an app on the ipad, it's still available when i access the app store on the ipad, but with a cloud icon on the lower right. are the deleted apps stored in the cloud?...because i didn't set anything up, and the cloud shows that it's totally empty when i access icloud/storage and backup.
