    My daughter has an iPad 2 that wouldn't present the update request. This forum, in a previous question, suggested I do the update through iTunes.

    Well, I did. I did a backup first then initiated the update through iTunes. Let it go all the way through and, finally, did the restore.

    Now every game I try to run causes the iPad to ask for Apple ID and password. This is entered but the game doesn't run. so touching the game again causes the AppleID and PW to be re-requested.

    I know these details are correct because when I intentionally enter the wrong PW, the iPad says so "wrong ID or PW"....

    Just to prove a point I changed the PW through "iforgot...." but the same thing happens - accepts the ID and PW but does nothing else except ask for it again and again and again.

    I have done a reboot and cleared memory with the "wiggle" and "X" etc.

    Help please....

    My grand-daughter can't play any games on my daughter's iPad :(

    As far as I can see, all the games are there :) Just can't play them :(

    Like I said, I updated from 4.3.5 to 6.0.1....

    Did everything this entailed now all the games that were restored as part of the update ask for a password accept it and ask for it again.

    It did NOT do this before.

    How do I fix it?

    G'day louwin. Can an Adelaide bloke just chip in, knowing you have already been asked and hope this is not getting tedious for you. I sometimes tend to use the word "reboot" (appropriate to my Win PC) which on the iPad is more accurately known as a "reset". So, just to make sure, when you rebooted/reset did you:
    Simultaneously hold down the Sleep/On and Home buttons until the screen blacks out and the white Apple logo appears, then let go of both buttons and wait until the logo turns into a new start screen.
    You probably did, but just asking to make sure:thumbs:.
    Regards, Andrew

    Hi Andrew,

    Thanks for your response. :)

    I did Resets (before) and have since done a couple of full reboots - they took a while. The Apple stayed on screen for a long time.

    But, I'm sorry to say, it didn't work. :(

    Further information:-

    I choose a game and touch it. The game start screen comes up and the AppleID and password are requested. I enter these, sometimes the start screen just displays for a while sometimes the word "Loading" shows on a black screen for a while and then the display returns to the menu.

    I did this with the old password and with the new one with no success.

    I will wait a bit for any further responses from this forum and failing that I will have to make a Genius Bar appointment and beg for help.

    Fingers crossed. :D

    I didn't mention that my daughter has an iPad 2....

    OK mate, just a final suggestion before you bring it in. Try Settings>General>Reset All Settings. This does not delete any data or medium but could tidy things up following that sync.
