    I have no space left. Do I have to delete all photos and most apps to be able to upgrade iOS? Is there a quick safe way to do this?

    Plug into your PC/Mac and do the upgrade via iTunes.

    Thanks. It tells me there are items purchase on the iPad that are not in iTunes yet. How do I move them over? Just do a sync?

    Also, oddly, iTunes claims 8.55 GB on the iPad are free, but the iPad says only 600 MB are free.

    Do a "Backup" : this will actually sync + backup.

    And will likely solve the discrepancy issue.

    Thanks. There's more cryptic stuff during the install:

    "You have changed the settings for the iPad “Oliver Zahn’s iPad”. Would you like to apply these changes?"

    What does this mean? What should I do?

    Wow, install interrupted simply saying "could not be completed". Apple managers you could really use some help.

    Then I restart the iPad (because it was stuck forever) and now it needs to be restored to factory settings or updated. Which should I chose?
