Hi Forum! I am a new member and my name is Presley! I have the first iPad and I believe the software is 3.2.
I might have updated it once. I sync my iPad to a family member's computer at work (it uses windows vista I believe it is called)...I don't even remember which iTunes I have right off the top of my head...but I am wanting to update my software and iTunes at this time. I realized when I began not being able to buy and load apps because off my software being SO out of date that I was going to have to study and figure all this updating/syncing stuff out! As y'all might have figured out, I am not very good with all this technology! I absolutely love my iPad though. I use it just to surf the web, look at you tube, facebook, apps, and iTunes. I am a chronic pain patient from the result of a car accident, broken neck, fibromialgia, brain surgery, narcolepsy, and I live 24/7 in chronic neuropathic pain as a result. What I am getting to is that my iPad is my link to all my friends and basically the outside world most of the time and I wouldn't know what to do without it, but now I am not able to do much with it because it is so extremely outdated. I have studied so much info about updating and syncing but I am terrified I will mess it up and delete everything from the articles I have read. Also, The different things I am reading don't quite match up...one article says to do it this way and another article will tell me something different. Can anyone direct me to a reliable source for updating? Is it safe to update a 1st generation iPad to the newest software and iTunes? I'm tired of it being a dinosaur! Any tech savvy people willing to help this "old school" gal out will be much appreciated!!! This forum is a blessing y'all! I look very forward to hearing from y'all! Thank y'all very much and I apologize for the length of this post. Also, I am very happy to be a part of this group. It is amazing so many people will take their personal time to write back and help out strangers...what a wonderful and kind group y'all must be....amazing! Thank y'all so much! Sincerely, your technically challenged friend, ~Presley~
