    Just plugged my iPad2 into my Macbook Pro to charge it up and was told that an IOS software update was available so I selected to download it. Before it started I was prompted to backup some new Apps on the iPad to iTunes. Once it finished it started to restore my Mac to Factory Settings!!!! Agghhh!!!

    After it finished I noticed that it had not removed some notes I had written the day before but all of my music had been removed.

    Is this normal after an IOS update?

    It restored your Mac to factory settings or your ipad?

    1. I assume that your iPad 2 was restored to "factory settings" instead of your Mac.
    2. You should've used the software update feature ON your iPad 2 (if it's on iOS 5 or later) instead of iTunes
