I'm sitting here with an iPad 2 and an iPhone 4. I can't do an OTA update on the iPad, but I can (and did) on my iPhone. More detail: I never updated either from 5.0 to 5.0.1. I must have chosen to download (and not install) 5.0.1 on the iPad, but never did on my iPhone. With 5.1 out, I decided to finally take care of the updates in both devices. On the iPad, I've had the software update badge on Settings for a while, due to the download. I went into Software Update and tapped install, it spins with "Verifying Update" for a while, and returns back with "Unable to verify update" and tells me the iPad doesn't have an Internet connection. Needless to say, it does. I'm home, on wifi, and it's connected just fine (I'm typing this from the iPad). This has been been ongoing for 3 days now. On my iPhone, I went into Software Update, saw that 5.1 was available. I downloaded and installed, nice and quick, no problems at all. My gut feeling is that the old 5.0.1 update has been deleted from the iPad somehow, but iOS thinks it's still there and is trying to verify a downloaded package that's gone. It won't move "past it" and let me go right to 5.1, because it's stuck trying to verify. Any suggestions from anyone? Is there a way to force my iPad to move past? Do I just need to plug it into my MacBook and let iTunes do it's ridiculously slow process?
