When updating ios 7
Try connecting your i Pad to i Tunes to activated it or try again in couple of minutes.
If this problem persists, contact Apple support at apple.com/support.
Step 5: A pop-up box will warn you that the restore will delete all data from the device.
But with older models of i Pad the process can sometimes be difficult.
In that case you will want to follow this tutorial and install your version of the i OS update via i Tunes on your Mac or PC.
If you don't have a lot of space left on your i Phone or i Pad, when you try and update i OS you may see a message that Apple will delete some of your apps to make space.
Even if officially rated as compatible with the new update, you may find that your 'vintage' model struggles to cope with the demands of the new software.
But that's nothing compared to the recent experience of some i Pad 2 owners, who found that their tablets wouldn't turn on at all after installing i OS 9.3.
