I just bought an iPad mini 4 off eBay, and it came with iOS 9. Not iCloud locked either. When I try to update it through settings, it says I need to connect to iTunes. When in iTunes, I can click update, and it says this iPad will be updated to iOS 13.x.x, but then it gives me an error message that says you do not have permission to access the requested resources, and it doesn't update. I'm on the latest version of iTunes, latest windows updates, even tried two computers, multiple USB ports on both, and have the same issue on both.
Anybody else run into this problem?

You might try a DFU restore to see if that helps. I have a mini 4 running iOS 13 with no issues.

No issues downloading and updating my Mini iPad 4.
Sesame Street simple.
Did it on the free wifi at a Tim Hortons outlet.

iTunes is next to useless unless you like reading error messages and excuses.
I update my iPhone 5s and Mini iPad 4 right from my home wifi connection using the devices themselves.

Twice you visited and replied to the thread but not once did you bother to read the OP 😔
