Hopefully someone here can help. Out of the blue, when I turn it on & go to any site, it loads about 10% of the way, then freezes, so I just turn it off & told myself I'd try to figure it out later.

Recently, there's a software update for iOS 8.0.2, so I tried to update it. I had to remove quite a few apps to make space. The upgrade said it would tk 7 hrs, but after downloading for only about 20 min, it stopped.

Now, it says Unable to check for update - An error occurred while checking for a software update. The only 2 buttons to press are Cancel or Try Again.

Anyone know what to do?

hit try again.

If that fails, hit cancel. back it up, copy all your data, then do a hard reset and see if it works.

But backup everything.

OK, I didn't do anything special, I just kept trying to update the 8.0.2 & it finally went all the way through! While I can go to sites, the internet surfing on there is still quite slow though for some reason. Anyone know why & what to do?

same with me. i left it plugged overnight and it had updated. the desktop looked different and it had added some apps. but it is slow and never quite completes the cycle. i am hoping it will fix itself.

You may want to visit this thread on City-Data: iPad latest update

Also, Apple has a Discussion Forum that discusses the issues with iOS 8 updates: https://discussions.apple.com/thread...art=0&tstart=0

I am awaiting an update that will fix this Apple mistake!

I had the three and had this issue, and also had issues with apps getting stuck in what was essentially a download manager. I was able to sync apps through a wired iTunes connection, but it started functioning appropriately.
