I need to update my ipad from 9.3.5 to 10

If the hardware of the iPad will take the update, it will be offered to you. They will only update 2 full builds. In other words, if your iPad had iOS 7 on it when you got it, it will only go as far as iOS 9.

Go to Settings - General - Software Update. It will tell you what you already have and if you are not offered an update, then you have gone as far as you can go. My iPhone 7 is on iOS 11.2.1

update my ipad from 9 3 5 to 10 Google Search

Click here >

Then scroll or swipe down to: iOS compatibility

You should see ...

  • iPad Pro12.9-inch
  • iPad Pro9.7-inch
  • iPad Air 2
  • iPad Air
  • iPad4th generation
  • iPad mini 4
  • iPad mini 3
  • iPad mini 2

If your iPad model is not listed, then it cannot be updated beyond iOS 9.3.5.

I updated my iPad to 11.0 and now I can’t play words HD free. It’s says I have to update words. How do I do that.

It seems that the app has not been updated to 64bit which is the technology the code is written in. IOS11 is the first version of IOS that expects only 64bit apps not the older 32bit.
To update goto the appstore and check under updates. If you see none you'll need to wait and see if the app is updated or find an alternative.

How do I update my apple IPad up to IOS 9.0 as I want to install BBC Sport

Depends on what iPad you have. The older versions will not update past a certain iOS. They're just not supported any more

I have an old iPad 2. Should I clean out all the old "cookies". Will this speed up my iPad ?. How do I delete cookies ?. Any suggestions...thanks

Clearing Cookies is done via clearing Internet History.

Open Safari, click on Bookmarks, then on History, then Clear at the bottom, then All Time.

You can also go Settings, Safari, them Clear History and Website Data which clears a few extras.

The only way to speed up a iPad is to reload the operating system by doing a Factory Restore. The clears everything off and starts afresh. If the iPad is older than a couple of years, the software updates you take slow the older models, as the software is designed for newer models with faster processors.

How do I get iOS down loads to down load on my IPad? I can't do anything unless I have ios6 or higher. I have first gen IPad.

Heidi, again.

My excuses you already did put the most important things here.
Right. The first iPad, only can install iOS 5.1.1 If you go to settings, general and then to the second line Software update, it says (should say) iOS 5.1.1 software is up to date.

And yes. Lots of apps now on the market, are written for the newer iOS's Latest version is iOS 8.0.2.
But these iOS's and modern Apps, need fast processors and a huge memory.
Apple now has the A8 processor, must be the eight generation of processor and the memory where the programs (apps) are running in, now are 4 times as big as in 2010, when the iPad 1 came on the market.
I still see lots of people use the iPad 1 and as long as they don't want newer apps it is still a great machine.
If you really want to run the new apps, you better wait a few weeks, because Apple will announce the new iPads soon.
Even if you don't want the newest, the other versions will become a little cheaper, as soon as the new iPad(s) are on the market.
Dont buy a iPad 2 any non retina, because they will be in the same situation (not possible to upgrade) soon.

Be aware, Apple is bringing new iOS's almost every year, and the devices, still powerful enough can upgrade without any problem. There is no Android firm, who delivers major updates for their older devices. If you want to update, you must root the device first and then you can install other operating systems, with the risk the device never works as it used to be. For this you should have lots of knowledge about computers and work through lots of frustration, if it does not work the first time you install a rooted android version. And there also is a limitation. When the processors become faster and the memory increases, the older devices can't use the newer rooted versions either.

New update iOS 8.02 will not update on my ipad

Ipad 1 / 3g is limited to iOS 5.11 only. No idea if Ipad 2 can go up to iOS 8. Upgrading a older model with a newer software isn't really going to be smooth.

How do I download iOS 6 to my apple ipad

Apple will let you know when updates are available for your device. If you have an older model, iOS 6 will not work with your processor. Work with an older version of the app or update to a newer device.

there were some random wifi issues with ipads early on but the most recent updates through itunes have corrected those. So best thing would be to connect to your computer and make sure its updated. if that doesn't work, may be a range issue, they dont have the longest reception.
