    That is only a feature of iOS 5 or later...


    You have iOS 4... See Here...






    Connect to iTunes on the computer you usually Sync with and “ Check for Updates “...


    If an Update Appears Install it...


    See the Using iTunes Section Here...

    The current update for an iPad 2 is iOS 6.1.3

    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: How to update your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch



    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.
