    Your information shows an iOS 6.1.4, there is no further update for your iPad.


    If you do not have that iOS, what version do you have?  If lower than 5 you need to connect to a computer with iTunes to up date.  If iOS 5 and above, go to Settings, General, Software Update.

    The iPad 2G and later is only up to 6.1.3, version 6.1.4 is for iPhone 5 only.  If that's the question, the answer is that 6.1.4 is not available for any iPad.

    If you have an iPad 1, the max iOS is 5.1.1. For newer iPads, the current iOS is 6.1.3. The Settings>General>Software Update only appears if you have iOS 5.0 or higher currently installed.


    iOS 5: Updating your device to iOS 5 or Later


    How to install iOS 6

    If you are currently running an iOS lower than 5.0, connect the iPad to the computer, open iTunes. Then select the iPad under the Devices heading on the left, click on the Summary tab and then click on Check for Update.


    Tip - If connected to your computer, you may need to disable your firewall and anitvirus software temporarily.  Then download and install the iOS update. Be sure and backup your iPad before the iOS update. After you update an iPad (except iPad 1) to iOS 6.x, the next update can be installed via wifi (i.e., not connected to your computer).


    Tip 2 - If you're updating via wifi, place your iPad close to your router to preclude getting a corrupted download.


     Cheers, Tom
