- the update procedure depends on the model of your iPad:
For the iPad first generation (A1219) to update is only possible with connecting the device to iTunes on a computer.
- but this model supports only iOS 5 - NO iOS 6/7/8
for all other models:
There are two ways to upgrade the iOS version of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch - via connecting the device to iTunes on a computer
- or directly from within the device, but only snce iOS 5, it is possible to upgrade the iOS version without the need to connect the iOS device to a computer (over-the-air update)
just go to: settings - general - software update

How can I up date my IPad?

Depends, When you have an iPad first generation, you can't update to iOS 6. All other iPads can upgrade to iOS 8.0.
In the few years your iPad is around, the processors are much faster. There is more internal memory and so on. Please to avoid you can't upgrade your next iPad, don't buy a second or third generation.
If you have a newer iPad than the first generation, just goto settings, general, an then the second line from the top says software update. Press that one. Your iPad will look if any update is available, and suggest to download and install it.
But the best way to upgrade, is connecting the iPad to iTunes and click on the name of the iPad on the left side in the menu, then click on upgrade.

Need to download iOS 8.0.1 on my apple ipad keeps telling me it failed because I am not o internet, but I know that I am connected to the iternet what is wrong?

if you have laptop/desktop computer you can sync the iPad with iTunes and download iOS 8.1.2 there:
Upgrading iPad to iOS 8: Through iTunes 1. Backup your iPad
Open iTunes. Select your iPad in iTunes and click Back Up Now.
2. Restart your iPad and your Computer
3. Download and Install the Update
Go to iTunes -> Select iPad -> Check for Update -> Click Download and Update
Whichever method you choose, the process will take quite some time to work depending on how much free storage you have on your iPad, your internet connection, and how Apple's servers are doing with upgrades. Occasionally, Apple will either not let you download the upgrade or it will fail. For iOS 8, you must have an iPad 3 or newer. This does not work with the original iPad - if something goes wrong, restart your device, and try again.
