Friday brings the New iPad to many people’s waiting hands. If you have an iPhone or a earlier version of the iPad, you may have apps that have been updated for the New iPad’s screen. Tomorrow, when your activating your iPad, these updated apps will try to download and install for you. If everyone else is doing their updates, you will be waiting a while. So, update now.
We have seen a few that we use just about every day so we’re jumping onto iTunes to download tonight instead of fighting the crowds tomorrow. Apple does a great job of supporting the heavy traffic days, but who wants to risk it and have to wait to start playing with the New iPad tomorrow while things download/update.
