    If you go to the iOS section of this Forum you'll find detailed instructions there on how to update your iPad to iOS5.

    Good Luck

    Plug it into a computer and launch Itunes. From there you can select "Update" and it will tell you if there is a update available or not.

    Go to general & settings. Then you will see that there is a iOS update option & do this over the wireless connection & it is as simple as that!

    Welcome to the forum! As long as you follow the directions for the iOS 5.0.1 upgrade there won't be any impact to your apps, etc.

    There are a lot of great people here willing to lend a hand anytime. Often using the Search box (at the top-left of every page) will lead you to the answers you're looking for. If not, feel free to post a question in the appropriate area.
