I'd like to update the operating system on my original iPad. I just don't have the options on my screen that every tutorial I've seen shows. What do I do? I'm so so so frustrated and am to the point where I never want to own an Apple product again. I've never updated my operating system in the past. I wouldn't now except for the past several months my apps have started to not work and can't be updated until I have at least an os5. Ugh!
There you read that the 1st iPad can only be updated to iOS 5.1.1. If you already got 5.1.1 on it, then you can't go higher.
If the apps stop working, just do not update them. Problem is once they stopped and deleted the older version which already worked, you can not go back, because you usually don't get your hands on old app versions, except you kindly ask the app issuer.
But you can check the MEDIA folder of iTunes where the apps are stored. If you still got any older version of an app, you can delete the new version and add the old one by moving it to the "Automatically add to iTunes" folder.
