    Hey guys, I have an iPad Air but not enough room on it to install iOS 8. Same old story as everyone else I guess. Is there any way I can get it on there without deleting everything I use?

    I don't have a mac.

    Doesn't have to be a Mac, you just need iTunes. Other than that, you've got to free up room on your air.

    Why do you think you need a Mac? You mean you've been using your iPad without ever syncing it to iTunes? You don't know that iTunes works just fine on Windows? Now if you are saying you don't have a computer at all, back up your iPad to iCloud and delete enough apps, videos, music and photos to make room. You can restore them all later if you want.

    Unfortunately you need a computer to do it. Plug in your iPad to any computer with iTunes. Just don't sync it.

    ITunes needs to be updated also.

    In reality, if iOS 8 doesn't have anything you just have to have, I would tell you to enjoy your iPad and forget iOS 8. If it's not broken don't fix it.
