    Hi, my name is Kathy and I am a new member. I am retired and enjoying life to the full. I love using my iPad but still get stuck with the technology sometimes.
    I do have a question to ask. Does anyone know how I can increase storage to enable further app downloads. My usage is at present is up to 13.7gb and I cannot update my iOS as there is not enough space.

    Welcome to the iPad forums, Kathy, the largest and best iPad forum anywhere, with over 282,000 members worldwide. Many of our membership volunteer their time to help their fellow members with answers to their questions and solutions to their problems. If a search of the forums doesn't provide the answer you need, don't hesitate to post your question in the appropriate forum. We ask that all members take the time to review the Forum rules before posting.

    I'm afraid that there's no way to increase the storage capacity of your iPad. If there is not enough free storage capacity to upgrade your iOS, you'll have to delete enough items to free up the necessary storage space.

    Hi there Kathy and welcome.

    Scifan's post is absolutely correct however, there are some workarounds, certain types of data can be stored externally, such as movies, photos, etc. As these types of file can take up a lot of space there may be some mileage in looking at the options, such as NAS drives, AirStash, iUSBport (formally CloudFTP), etc and you can find out about all these and more in the iPad-connect section of the forums here http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-connect/

    There is lots of good advice and info on here plus plenty of members all too willing to help with any problems.

    Remember, search is your friend. If you can't find the answer you need and you post a question then give as much info as you can to help members help you i.e. iPad 1 or 2, etc. and iOS version and name of app if the problem is with a specific app........and please don't forget to read the forum rules http://www.ipadforums.net/forum-rules-help-info/2119-forum-rules-everybody-please-read.html

    These are the hacking section rules for all you jail breakers (and would be jail breakers) http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/2892-hacking-section-rules-please-read.html

    We also have an app for this forum. The link to download the app is: Discussion Forum for iPad Users for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

    You can download the manual for your iPad here http://help.apple.com/ipad/6/ and here http://support.apple.com/manuals/ and in iBooks search for "iPad user guide for" and you will find free comprehensive manuals for iOS 4, 5, 6, etc.

    If you have other Apple products or are interested in other Apple kit then why not join our sister forum too at http://www.appleforums.net/ and for iPhone users, come and join in the discussion over at http://www.iphoneforums.net
