    i'm still hesitated about whether i update my iPad 1 running ios 3 to ios 4.3.3... i want multitasking, folders and gesture of course but then again i DONT want battery drainage what so ever! i had that with my old iPhone 3gs and currently with my iPhone 4 (weird)

    i need maximum battery life and performance.. i don't want it to crash or suddenly die..

    is an update recommended ?
    thanks :)

    I know there were some initial issues with 4.3.3 concerning battery power, etc. but AFAIK everything was addressed. I haven't noticed any issues with our original iPad...still lasts for what seems like forever.

    BTW, the latest software is v4.3.5

    With all of the latest features I wouldn't hesitate to update. Can't wait for iOS 5 as well!

    i know about 4.3.5 but i'm afraid that the ipad 1 processor won't be able to cop with the 4.3.3 firmware... that's y you get battery drainage and over heat of the battery..

    so update?

    Yes, as I mentioned our iPad 1 runs perfectly fine with the latest OS and there's been no impact to the battery life. If anything it's lasting longer thanks to a few changes Apple made to how it handles certain apps and activity. If you haven't noticed, one of Apple's competitive advantages with all of their portable devices is battery longevity. It's long been one their top priorities.

    ok then i'll update and if any battery drainage occurred i'll be posting of this thread to figure things out... BTW i heard that when updating one should always start as a new device in order not to cause such things.. is this right? i have no problem restoring since i just got the ipad and no important info are on it

    I've always just let iTunes take care of my iPad's updates and have never had any issues.

    That said I'm one of those folks that likes a "clean slate" when I upgrade my Macs so I always do a "scrape and pave" (wipe the drive and start fresh). Most experts don't think that's necessary but I like to get rid of all the cruft.

    I guess I never thought of restoring my iPad prior to an update. I don't see any harm but in my own experience I don't think it's necessary.

    Happy updating!

    Wait..if your going to just update your iPad and not jailbreak, you need to go straight to 4.3.5. That's your only option if you haven't saved blobs, and if you don't know what that means..it's still your only option. There are no memory or speed issues with 4.3.5

    I heard that iOS 5 upgrade requires 4.3 or higher. You can not wait too long for Apple updates.
