    You shouldn't, but do a backup first. Follow the onscreen prompts very carefully, and be patient, as it can take a while. Make sure your iPad is fully charged before you start and download the latest version of iTunes.

    I'm not going to say you won't lose data, because plenty of us did when iOs5 first became available, but if things do go wrong you'll be able to restore from your backup when the new OS is in place.

    It's worth pointing out that you should never have information you care about in just one place. Backups and archives are your friends, in this respect.

    Good luck.
