    My wife could not get some apps to work, OI told her she needed to update her OS. Well she dragged her feet and a hour or so ago decided to go from OS-6 to OS-8.1
    The progression bar went smoothly for awhile, but now after an hour it looks like it has stopped, it look to be 90% done according to the progress bar, but the bar has not moved in a half hour.

    Is this normal
    iPad-3 64gb

    Thanks

    Depending on your internet connection, it can be that slow. There is also a long period when the download is verifying that the iPad appears to be doing nothing.

    Give it a couple hours, at least. Better to wait and see than interrupt the process if it's still working.

    Though, looking at the timestamp on your post, I suspect it's already completed, or you've pulled the plug by now.

    I hope it went well.

    ipad froze with about 10% left. I did a hard shut down and turned it back on, it took about 2 min and I was done.

    No problem. I'm just glad it worked out in the end.
