    I decided to upgrade to IOS 9 last night while my IPad was charging. Everything looked normal and when it completed I hit the home button and a "Connect to ITunes" screen appeared. This morning I connected it to ITunes on my laptop and found the upgrade failed. I tried to Upgrade and Restore and that failed. I have the upgrade installed, but I can't restore from ITunes backup. My phone and IPad both show in ITunes, but when it's plugged into my IPad none of the backup, restore, or etc. are active. They're fine when my phone is connected. I haven't started to set it up as a new IPad. Any ideas?

    I updated to IOS 9 last night and am so so sorry I did. Can anyone please tell me how to uninstall this IOS. I absolutely hate it. I tried contacting apple support but they want $30 to fix the problem their update caused.

    The software needs some time to settle in, from a few hours up to two days.

    If you want to revert to iOS 8.4.1, you'll have to do this soon, though, because Apple could stop signing the software any time.
    Download the right .ipsw-file to your computer, if you don't know a site where to get it, use this one:
    iOS 8.4.1 Update Available to Download for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch [IPSW Links] | OSXDaily

    Backup your iPad, using iTunes or iCloud, whichever you prefer. Then disable "Find my iPad" in Settings - iCloud and turn off your iPad.

    Start iTunes on your computer. Connect your device to the computer and press and hold Home and Power button for 10 seconds. Release the Power button, continue pressing the Home button. When iTunes says it has detected an iPad in recovery mode, let go of that button as well.

    Select your device in iTunes, you'll find the Restore button. With a Mac, option click it. With a pc, shift click it. Select the file you've downloaded earlier and let iTunes restore your iPad.

    At the moment, iOS 8.4.1 is still signed, so you should be able to revert.

    How do I get the full keyboard "short cuts" touted as part of the ios9 upgrade on an IPAD 4?

    I have a new looking keyboard, but I only have the arrows pointing right and left and a weird square the seems to put an IP address in the TO line of the blank email. Where is the B and I and the camera and the paperclip? How do I get those?

    You'll find them when you use your Notes app.

    That's an interesting keyboard, but it's not the one shown in the link I gave or the one my sister has for her IPAD. Both the ad link and my sister show B and I and a camera and a paper clip on the right above the keyboard. These can be used in email, not just for a special app like Notes.

    Any idea how I get those "short cuts" to Bold, Italics, etc on my keyboard for email?

    Enable Shortcuts in Settings - General - Keyboards - All Keyboards. (Not "."Shortcut)

    H
    All the options under Keyboards are enabled, including shortcuts and "." Shortcuts....no help. Now even the couple of things I had above the keyboard have disappeared.

    My keyboard looks like this on this forum:

    As you'll probably notice, not all the features are available here. This is what it looks like in the Mail app:

    Yes, and I want my keyboard to look like yours. I had all the options on, turned off the ”.” Shortcut as you show...and I still do NOT have the shortcut bar you have.

    See my screenshot again.....There is NOTHING above the first line of keys.
