Is there an advantage to using Itunes to upgrade an Ipad2 from ios5 to ios6? The question has to do with going back to ios5 if ios6 has created the problems some people are having. My wife's Ipad2 is doing everything she needs it to do and I'm concerned I will screw that up. I have a Ipad3, given to me by my brother, with ios6 and works great. I'm trying to make sure it stays in my hands and not end up inmy spouse's hands.
