I'm a 64 year old semi-retired mechanical engineer. I use my iPad 2 primarily for email, Facebook, and Words with Friends, as well as general surfing. I joined this group because I need help. I upgraded to iOS6 and now my iPad is completely inoperative. The installation seemed to be going OK, there was the status bar that showed progress. I left it to install and a couple of hours later came back and it won't boot up. I have tried everything. I made sure it was charged, and pressed the on off button both for a long time and a short time. Has this happened to anyone else?
