Re: Updating An IPAD

So far I am aware that you need some type of desktop to update a iPad with a new OS as it will use iTunes either via MAC or PC software to act as a middleman when installing the update, and be able to restore or correct any failures. As for a service offered by Best Buy. While not a specified service offered to my knowledge or any set price, I don't see a reason why Geek Squad would not be able to do this for you for a specific fee or something of that sort. I know we would be able to in our store. I would suggest bringing our iPad to your local Best Buy and speaking with a Geek Squad Agent or the Manager on Duty to see what could be done. After all its not like you need our iPad taken apart! Smiley Happy

To all those fellow gamers out there, I want to say sorry in advance. If you get fragged by "CanadianFrodo" during your online pay... my bad a head of time! See you on the Battlefield!

I think the new iOS has potential to become better if you want to use iOS 6 as a kind of feel threw then go for it but if its down to usefulness you may want to wait.
