Apple released the new iOS 9.3 update earlier this week, the update brings a range of new features to the iPhone and iPad and now it looks like the software is causing problems for some iPad owners.
There are a number if reports of people being unable to activate their iPad after the update over at Apple’s support website, this appears to be affecting the iPad 2 and also other versions of the device.
It appears that the issue since the iOS 9.3 software update is only affecting older versions of Apple’s tablet like the iPad 2 and the third generation iPad.
Just to add that it isn’t confined to iPad 2, my old original iPad is affected and effectively useless, though after trying a restart and inadvertently taking a screen shot of the ‘Hello’ screen, iPhoto did recognise it. Tried restarts when linked and not linked to iTunes. No go at all. Apple should pull this update quickly.
As yet there is no official statement from Apple on when this issue will be fixed, you can find out more details over at Apple’s support forums at the link below.
