    What's the purpose of this just released (4.3.5) iPad update, there was one released (4.3.4) just a few days ago? Did they fail to fix something?

    It is just a small update to patch up a security leak, I believe.

    I just google and saw this explainer:

    iOS 4.3.5 Software Update

    I didn't even know there was a 4.3.5. I just updated to 4.3.4 yesterday!

    Oh that is too funny! I haven't even upgraded to 4.3.4, because I am JB and I am not quite sure what will happen if I do....

    I have to contact my Expert On The Matter.:D

    I'm looking forward to updates that don't require iTunes.

    It sucks now if you're away from your computer for a stretch, because you can't update firmware without it. I don't want to carry around my laptop when I travel, just in case Apple updates iPad firmware, but if it's a security-related update, I'd rather get it sooner than later.

    You have to log onto iTunes on your computer and synch your iPad to update.

    Weird. I'm in the middle of updating my iDevices to 4.3.5 now. Two down, three to go, plus my husband's iPad.

    When you hook up your iPad to iTunes on your computer, do you double click on your iPad's name? When I do that and then click on the Summary tab in the main screen area, it tells me that 4.3.5 is available. (And that's after I've ignored the 4.3.5 upgrade prompt that automatically pops up once I hook up iPad to computer. I ignore the popup because I usually have purchases to transfer to iTunes first.)
