    Have you uploaded iTunes 10.5?

    It's needed for the iOS5 upgrade.....

    gotcha!

    Just about to upgrade, but it now it warns me.....


    updating to ios 5 will delete all of the apps and media, including itunes store purchases, on your ipad. To preserve your content, apply your update on the computer where you sync app music photos etc etc.
    updating on this computer will only preserve contacts, calenders, text messages and other settings. please do not interrupt the update which will take an hour or so tom complete etc etc



    what exactly does this message mean?

    So is this the PC your iPad is synch'd to? You need to perform the update on the PC that your iPad is synchronised to....
