    Since upgrading as advised when I synced my iPad2 with iTunes to the latest OS, I have had nothing but problems viewing my apps and screens.
    When I open my iPad2 it apparently opens correctly, BUT the moment I tap an App, the screen revolves through 180 degrees, and rotating the iPad makes no difference, so in effect I have to work upside down.
    Besides locating my iPad on a swivel, any ideas about correcting this flaw in Apple's-latest hash up?

    Sorry to hear of your problem Meddive, have you tried a reset/reboot? Usually if things go weird this will fix them.....

    Try a reset/reboot, hold the power/sleep button and the home button down at the same time and continue holding until the Apple logo appears. Let go and your iPad should restart although it may take longer than usual. See if that solves your problem.

    Welcome to the forum Da2romes, it sounds like a shortage of RAM. Try closing all apps and deleting Safari cookies and data as well as history. To force apps to close double press the round Home button to expose the task/history bar at the bottom. Tap and hold any icon until they all jiggle with a red minus sign in the top left corner. Tap all the minus signs one by one until all apps are closed. You are not deleting them, just forcing them closed. Now tap anywhere above this bar to return to the home screen. Hope this helps you, post if it does okay.....

    You're welcome and thanks for the update. When others read that something has fixed a problem it helps them as well. ;)

    Let's go back a little......you say you can't update above iOS 5, could you give us a few more details on that? What happens if you go to Settings > General > Software Update?

    Go to General > Settings > About, and tell us what the "Version" label tells you. I suspect you are still on a 4.x firmware.

    If so, then your only option to upgrade is to do so via your PC. The ability to update OTA (via wifi) was only added with Version 5 of IOS, and we are now on version 6.1.
