Hi Guys,

If I would like to update the OS of my ipad, would it automatically delete all the apps which I have downloaded or not? and If I would like to cancel the update, would it affect the functionality of my ipad ?

Thanks.

It will not delete all the apps you downloaded. If you have any doubt about this do one thing.Transfer purchases to iTunes" before you update. This will ensure that when you sync your device you will have an up to date version of your apps in iTunes. If some thing happen while you are downloading  you can restore them from iTunes.

Dear Donbradman,

When you update your iPad OS, of course, it will not remove the applications that have been previously downloaded. Update will only update the OS, will not alter existing data and applications previously.

However, if you are unsure and afraid of losing your applications, you can first do a back-up before performing OS updates. You can back up your iPad  throughitunes. Connect your iPad to ituneswith data cable, it will automatically do the back-up data.

If you cancel the update during the update process is not finished, this can cause interference on your iPad OS. But do not worry, you can restore your iPad to its original state with the backup file, that you have save first.

Good luck.

I don’t think so. Upgrading the firmware of your iPad is just like upgrading the operating system of a Windows and Mac PCs. When upgrading the operating system or firmware of a device like an iPad, the only thing that gets modified and replaced is the operating system or firmware. All the applications installed are intact and unmodified.

But of course, since you upgraded the firmware, you should check if your apps are still supported in your latest operating system. If one of your apps turns out to be no longer supported in your current iOS version, you simply need to update it from the Apple App Store.

Just visit the Apple App Store in your iPad and download the latest version of the app. If you want to make sure that none of your apps will be removed, backup your iPad’s data first before updating its firmware. This way, if one of the apps went missing after the upgrade, you can easily restore it on your device.
