iPad Settings Software Update

I’ve posted on this topic before, but I thought it was worth another mention since I keep seeing this question posted in iPad discussion forums. The question being:

What to do when there’s no Software Update section in the iPad Settungs app.

The very simple answer is that you need to update to iOS 5 when connected to a Mac or Windows PC. Then once you have iOS 5 installed, the Software Update section will be available and you’ll be able to update your iOS software directly on the iPad.

For a full step-by-step walkthrough, check out my earlier post on how to update to iOS 5.

** Owners of the original iPad should not that the latest iOS version you can update to is 5.1.1.
