Problem updating ipad to ios 7
For these older devices, we have temporarily pulled back the update and will release an updated version of i OS 9.3 in the next few days that does not require this step.”Good news, Apple just released another update to their i OS 9.3, make 13E237, for older i Phone, i Pod touch, and i Pad that was affected by the annoying activation error.There are two ways to proceed with this new firmware.Others ran into serious problems that necessitated recovering the device.Here's a handy primer on Recovery Mode and how to deal with it: recommend you back it up before you do.Tether your device to your Mac using a sync cable and handle the update through i Tunes instead of doing it like some crazy magician, using nothing but the air and invisible radio waves. If a problem happens during the update, having that recent backup readily available changes the situation from a crisis to a minor inconvenience.
For those that haven’t already download i OS 9.3, you can do that directly on your device through OTA, Over-the-Air.It can take anywhere from 15 mins to an hour for the update to download and install, depending on how Apple’s servers are handling the load and your internet connection.You may also want to connect your i Phone to your local Wi Fi network, so you don’t get charged for downloading the update over your cellular connection. i OS will automatically check for available updates and will prompt you if one is available.I work for an Apple retailer on the weekends, and this past weekend a cluster of customers came in with i Phones and i Pads that were in Recovery Mode — their screens displayed a globe icon and an image of a sync cable.All of them had one thing in common: they had tried to upgrade to i OS 7.1.2 and something had gone wrong along the way.
