    Safari stopped working correctly on iPad mini with retina

    I just reset network settings on my mini again and so far it is working. Keeping fingers crossed it continues to work this time. Last time it did not last. As soon as I plugged it in to charge it reverted back. Not sure if backing up to the cloud has anything to do with it or not. That is...

    Safari stopped working correctly on iPad mini with retina

    I appreciate all your time and suggestions on my problem. Unfortunately we don't have a 'real' Apple store here. I will give Apple Tech support a call. Since both iPads are having the same problem, I don't see how the new mini is at fault, but both are registered to me and I back up both to...

    Safari stopped working correctly on iPad mini with retina

    Thanks again. :(. Unfortunately, my mini just experienced the same problem again. It was fine until I plugged it in to recharge some while eating dinner. During that time, or shortly after unplugging it, the set time and date automatically got turned off. When I turned it on, the date...

    Safari stopped working correctly on iPad mini with retina

    Again, thank you for your help. I tried to 'reset all settings'. But, said I had to enter 4 digit restrictions passcode. Since I don't know what that is, I could not proceed. Since this will be a 'new' iPad for my husband, I considered restoring the device to original settings. But, not...

    Safari stopped working correctly on iPad mini with retina

    Uh oh. That is not working to fix the iPad 2. Reverts back to 1970 as soon as I change it to set automatically. Geesh. :( Mini is still working ok.

    Safari stopped working correctly on iPad mini with retina

    Woo Hoo! That did it. I tried that last night and because it wasn't working correctly, could not change it to the correct date or time zone. The date and year were showing Jan 2014. But year immediately changed to 1971 with no time zone when I tried to fix it. Could get on line but did not...

    Safari stopped working correctly on iPad mini with retina

    Oops...sorry. Thanks. I did reboot the modem. Same problem exists. Then just rebooted my iPad again. When it came back on, it says todays date is Friday January 2, 2014. Am using it now to respond here. But still getting unidentifiable network message. And still no connection to app...

    Safari stopped working correctly on iPad mini with retina

    No. We have a "radio" modem in our condo that provides wifi to others in our building. I don't have rights to reset it, even tho we have an 'isolated' network. But, it probably could be done with our network support personnel if I and they were sure that was the problem. What is likelihood...

    Safari stopped working correctly on iPad mini with retina

    This afternoon, I kept receiving error messages on every web site that the server could not be identified. Sites like cnn, fox news and my aol mail. Also cannot connect to app store. Message says server could not be located. My games by King are not working and the time on my iPad shows 1:51...

    Ipad2 won't charge

    Thanks so much for responding. I finally did solve the problem. I had an official apple charger but the short connecting cable was 3rd party because my Apple ones kept splitting and breaking. Has worked fine for a couple of years until I downloaded ios 7. I kinda had a meltdown of sorts...

    Ipad2 won't charge

    Yesterday I updated my ipad to ios 7 after I purchased my new iPhone 5s. It charged very slowly overnight and was 100% charged this morning. However, by noon it was down to 30 % so plugged it in to charge and it wouldn't charge. So I tried switching chargers still nothing. Then I read of...

    Backing up to iCloud

    So, you just continue to back up the 'old fashioned way' using iTunes just like we did prior to the iOS upgrade? I like the idea of having a 'back up to the back up'. Thanks for the advice and information. As usual it was very helpful.

    Backing up to iCloud

    Hmm, I did not know I had to enable anything! Geesh, more to learn. I thought I just had to plug it in, turn on my wifi and close the cover. So, where exactly do you enable what is to be backed up? And how do I choose? Sorry for being so ignorant. Is it really necessary to back it up...

    Backing up to iCloud

    Has anyone tried yet to back up to iCloud and if so how long did it take? I mean after loading the new iOS yesterday. I downloaded the new iOS 5 yesterday. The information on the iCloud said to back up daily using iCloud. So, 'should' do it tonight. I am a little hesitant to try, just in...

    Missing New Page Button in Safari IPAD2

    I also don't like tabs. They are on my laptop with windows 7 but still don't like them. Just seems like too much 'stuff going on'. But, hey we all want 'progress', right?

    ISO5 new features list shown during upgrade

    Is this what you are looking for? Richsadams was kind enough to show this on page 6 of the 'Who will get their's first' Thread just below. I just copied and pasted his list below. Not very short, though so you may be looking for something else. Here are the new features per the download...

    Who will be the first to download iOS5?

    I probably don't have as many as most people, since I have only had my iPad2 for 2 months. But, it took about 30 minutes to restore my apps give or take a few minutes. I didn't actually time it, but I was doing several other things while the apps were being restored and also posting messages...

    Apps wont open

    It was a long process getting the update downloaded and installed. But, the final thing on iTunes was 'restoring apps'. It took quite awhile. I had the update completed and my iCloud settings done and it was still 'restoring apps.' I 'think' everything had to be backed up to iCloud and then...

    Who will be the first to download iOS5?

    Well, it looks like everything is finally complete. All of my apps have been restored, I have automatic backup to iCloud set up. Have some questions regarding iCloud but will wait until others get everything loaded and updated. Not sure if I need iCloud email address. Started to set it up...

    Who will be the first to download iOS5?

    :( Oh dear...HELP. I connected back to iTunes and it said it was now updating my iPad. Then it synced and did back up. Then all these software and firmware restore and new drivers. Then the message that it was resetting to factory restore. Then a message that the factory settings could not...

    Who will be the first to download iOS5?

    Thanks, I will reconnect and see what happens. I chose to download only because on one of these forums l read last night people said they had less problems when they selected download only. Felt like I had to make a quick decision, but that is why I chose that. Keeping fingers crossed that...

    iPad2's Limited Operating System

    I have had my iPad 2 for approximately 2 months. I also researched nearly every higher rated tablet being sold and tried out most of them. I chose the iPad because it was easy to use, comfortable and offered many options that just worked for me. I didn't expect it to be 'perfect' but I was...

    Help with new updates

    Thanks. I did a sync last night and did not download the safari update to my pc. When the new iOS is available, I will just do the download. I want to avoid any potential problems if I can. I appreciate the advice.

    I'm new to all this iPad stuff.

    I also am fairly new. But I can share my experiences so far. First of all I really, really like my iPad! I have 3G and wifi, but have still not turned on the 3G. Wifi works just fine for me so far. I always make sure we stay in hotels with free wifi when we travel and we have wifi in our...

    New Amazon Fire Tablet killing the iPad? We think not.....

    I also think it seems like a very good entry level device. At 7 inches is small but ok. Will be a great eReader plus web surfing, email, some games and other apps from android app store, streaming and movies. Sounds like a good low price alternative to The iPad for those only need those...

    Forum's New look...seems to crash on PC

    From my PC seems more difficult to read, font smaller? Lighter? Not sure. Also, lots of wasted space between replies. Going to see what it looks like on my iPad now. I did have to log in of course. No crashes, so that is a good thing. Will take getting used to. Anyone know why the change...
