Can't update my iPad2 to 6.1

by volvogirl / January 30, 2013 7:17 AM PST

probably because I never installed 6.0.1. I downloaded it but never installed it yet. When I try to install 6.0.1 it says it can't verify the update because I am not connected to the internet. But I am. I think it can't verify it because Apple probably doesn't have it anymore since they put out 6.1 So how can I skip 6.0.1 and get 6.1?

And it d/l the update to my iPad2. But after it d/l it then iTunes sat there for a long while and put up a problem Network Connection timed out. So I looked on my iPad2 and 6.1 was there and ready to install. So I installed it using the iPad2.

Should I just ignore that error since I got my iPad updated?

I'm so used to errors after decades of computer use that I don't think much about it.

However you do have folk that don't have such history and think the world is mad.

PS. Well, it is a mad mad world after all.

As this was solved, I am left to wonder how you missed it.
