    Today I tried to updated my iPad Air 2 via OTA to iOS 10.1 but it sucked at around 20% and now it keeps restarting continuously.
    Already tried the hold On/Off and Home buttons but that didn't work. What can I do to fix this?

    Any help, please?

    Thanks

    You'll need to restore in iTunes. Which wipes everything.

    The problem is that it doesn't show up on iTunes because it's always restarting :(

    These are the reasons Ive moved on from the iPad Air 2 to the iPad pro 12.9
    I was having alot of issues with my iPad Air 2. Updates were taking a very long time, my iPhone was done for around 15-20 minutes and they would start at the same time. And then I would have to restart my Ipad Air 2 almost everyday, it was lagging and freezing on most apps. I think iOS 10 is too much for it to handle or Apple does it so we upgrade more often...

    That's because you need to be it into recovery mode. Just do a quick Google and it'll show you how too.

    Thanks for the help. I almost thought I need it to bring to Apple. But recovery mode did the trick. :)

    Interesting. My experience with my Air 2 is completely the opposite of yours - no problems with updates, including 10.1 now; I rarely do a restart; and no lagging or freezing on any apps (and I have a ton of them on my 128GB device). Same goes for my wife's Air 2.
