If your Apple ID is locked or disabled If you or someone else enters your password, security questions, or other account information incorrectly too many times, your Apple ID automatically locks to protect your security and you can't sign in to any Apple services. You can unlock your Apple ID after you verify your identity.
If your Apple ID is locked for security reasons, you might see one of these alerts:

  • "This Apple ID has been disabled for security reasons"
  • "You can't sign in because your account was disabled for security reasons"
  • "This Apple ID has been locked for security reasons"
When you see one of these alerts, you can go to iforgot.apple.com to unlock your account with your existing password or to reset your password. After multiple unsuccessful attempts to unlock your account, your Apple ID will remain locked and you can try again the next day.
If you use two-factor authentication, you need a trusted device or trusted phone number to unlock your Apple ID. And if you have a recovery key, you can use it to help you regain access to your account.
Learn more After you change your password, you might need to update it in your iCloud settings and in any Apple services that you sign in to with your Apple ID. Learn more about your Apple ID and where you can use it.

SOURCE: problems transfering apps from iphone to Ipade

You are able to use any appstore app with the iPad. Make sure your iPad is listed as a connected device in the left side bar of iTunes. Check your sync settings to make sure they're set to sync with your iPad and if needed restore your iPad using the restore button and try to sync again.

To make an application fullscreeen tap the small "2x" button in the bottom corner of your iPad. This will upscale the app to fullscreen.

Hope this helps, if you found this helpful please leave some feedback. Thanks.

SOURCE: Ever since I downloaded Apple's latest iPad update

In order to use orientation lock with the new update:

  1. Double-click the iPad's home button, bringing up the multitasking menu with all programs you are currently running.
  2. Swipe your finger to the left while in the multitasking area.
  3. The orientation lock is now controlled through a software feature rather than the physical mute button.
  4. Tap the orientation lock icon (circular arrow furthest to the left) to engage it.
  5. In this menu you can also quickly change brightness settings and music controls.
A new feature rumored in iOS 4.3 (the next iOS iteration) will allow for the iPad's user to set whether the physical button controls orientation, or act as a mute switch.

I just updated my iPad to iOS 11 and now when I try and playWords With Friends it says the developer needs to update Words With Friends to work with iOS11. Please update. Thank you.


Go to the APP Store and get the new iOS11 version. The reason you don't get a prompt to update is because this is not an upgrade to the old App, it is a brand new 64bit version.

Why can't I play my old version on iOS 11? - Zynga Support

https://zyngasupport.helpshift.com/a/words-with-friends/?s=hot...ios-11...
... we suggest that you download our newest version of the game since the iOS 11 will no longer support the 32-bit apps - Words With Friends HD (iPad), Words.

Why need passcode for software update ipad2?and how can we fix it?


If its asking for an apple ID or iTunes account password then you need to sign in with that. If you forgot it you can recover it using the email account you signed up with. If you have a lock code on the tabket then it may be that one. You can sometimes sign out of itunes and sign in with a new one as well. This is a security feature to prevent apps from auto updating and wiping out settings or other people screw with it.

How do I download showbox?


You DO realise that Showbox is an ANDROID app ??? Unless your Apple machine can run Android Apps.
Another reason not to buy those greedy Apple company products....you can only use thier own apps. Disgraceful.

I am strying to download the ice age village updates. it says whoops your not conected to the internet. I pluged into my computer. what do i need to do?


First check that your iPad is connected to the internet in the settings, and to see if it is connected to your WiFi. check in the App Store if there is an update available for Ice Age Village, and if there is, then you can update through the App store. If that does not work, I suggest saving your game data through the Game Center and re-installing the app.

How to reset your restriction code


The only way to reset your restriction code is if you know the existing code. Since it appears you do not know the existing code you will need to restore your iPad to remove the code.

Simply, connect your iPad to your computer and open iTunes. Perform a backup so you can later re-add all your apps. Then perform a restore. This should remove the restriction code.

Hope that helps!
