It could be a brutal end with Apple removing the i Pad mini from its stores.But I think Apple will still keep the i Pad mini for a little while — it’s just going to slowly fade away.Select your i Pad on the list of devices in i Tunes, click the "Summary" tab and select "Check for Update." Click "Download Update" to initiate the automated download and installation process.You can add new content to your i Pad by downloading apps, games and media using the App and i Tunes Stores on the i Pad itself.The device may need to restart after the update is complete.
This means a single update could use up a good chunk of your monthly allotment if you have a data plan limited to 1 or 2 GB per month. Even with an unlimited plan, it could take a while to perform updates over 4G, which could slow you device down for other services such as browsing Facebook or getting turn-by-turn directions.
You can now download i OS 9 on your i Phone, i Pad or i Pod Touch.
The latest version of Apple's mobile operating system will run on any i Device from 2011 or later.
Make sure you are connected to Wi-Fi and running the latest version of i OS -- i OS 8.4.1.
Then head to Settings, select General, followed by Software Update and click the Download and Install button.
It's essential that the i Pad have power throughout the update process.
