    So I can't connect my iPad to iCloud; it says the password is incorrect even though everything is set up correctly. Has Apple blocked older devices already?

    Thanks for any input on this!

    Do you have two-factor-authentication or two-step-verification enabled on your Apple ID ? If you've turned these features on using another device running a version of iOS that supports them, then this might explain it, since the non-2FA-aware iOS 5 would not be able to successfully negotiate a login with iCloud.

    That's not correct, older OS versions can still connect with two-factor enabled, and I have done so with an 11-year-old iMac running 10.8.5 Mountain Lion. But there is a special way you have to do it.
