    Hi, just joined....... Can i know if i would lose the books i purchased if i update my ipad? I have never backed up nor done a sync, all purchases done on wireless. I tried to download some free apps and could not cos they require ios4.2 and above, hence my quest to update to be ios compliant! See my big issue is..... I backed up but my over 100 purchased books didnt backup + when i try to update it gives the prompt all purchases would be lost!!!!!!!! How can i do this without losing my books both read and unread?

    You'll need to backup your iPad with a PC and the latest version of iTunes. Then you can update the software and restore your iPad and all your purchases will be back.

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad

    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.
