I am a guest in the land of smiles
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.

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...

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.
