I have been connecting my iPad 2 to iTunes and it detects the new version of the iOS. iTunes downloads the update but fails to install the iOS on the device. I need some help here.

    Try doing a manual install, as outlined in the link below.

    Thank You Mac Medic. Very clear instructions and worked like a charm, I still did not get what the problem is with the version. I had issues with the iPhone 4 update but then it updated fine.


    Thank you again.

    I was having the same problem. My solution was different. I use a USB hub, so I connected directly to the keyboard on my iMac and tried again. It worked, but is taking FOREVER to restore! I sincerely hope it completes the task without another error message!

    I also had a problem restoring my ipad 2 to ios5 in a 7 windows system, and my ipad couln't connect to that computer again, so I did a hard reset and connected the ipad to an XP system (where I had done a backup previously), the Ipad then connected fine to my XP pc but when setting the new system I tried to make a "restore backup" from my computer and it showed a "not enough space on disk to perform the action", I located the backup on my pc and is 14GB, my question for you is how much space on disk is required to perform the backup restore? I had to delete a 4GB program to free some space, but I'm concerned if that is enough? Also, I had to define an ipad as a new, could I still recover my backup?how?
