    I updated mine by using a PC windows 7. A friend of mine wants to update her iPad 2 to iOS5 but has no PC in Japan. Does she need a PC to do it then? Thanks

    Yes, but all future updates can be done on the device itself.

    If she's got an Apple Store nearby, I'm sure they'd be willing to help her upgrade. Once you are on iOS 5, you can do over-the-air updates and never need a computer again.

    Just tell her to go under settings then general and then software update.

    She is in 4.3+ or something. I guess she needs a PC to do so then?
