Updating mac 10 3 9
For i Pad 2 users, the update to i OS 9.3 leads to an activation issue, which ultimately renders the device "useless".
As you may know, in order for any i OS device to work, it has to be able to activate itself by connecting to Apple's servers.
According to a statement given to i More, which you can read below, the i OS 9.3 update has been paused for such devices.It is not unheard of a new i OS or OS X release to break things, as Apple seems to be dealing with these kind of things quite frequently nowadays.Not everyone may be affected, but if you have an i Pad 2 or use Apple's messaging services often on your Mac you might want to hold off on performing the upgrade.For these older devices, we have temporarily pulled back the update and will release an updated version of i OS 9.3 in the next few days that does not require this step. Update 3: It also looks like there are issues with links in i OS 9.3.Update 2: Apple has re-released i OS 9.3 with a patch for older i Pads and i Phones which should fix the activation issue. When users tap on a link in some i OS 9.3 apps, it leads to hangs and crashes.
At the moment when I go for a Software update, it says ios 9,3,5," Your software is up to date." I am told I need 10.0 and above to download certain apps. Unfortunately, The i Pad 2, 3 and 1st generation i Pad Mini are all ineligible and excluded from upgrading to i OS 10.
