Updating itunes 8 0
So I assume you have already downloaded the file, and now follow the steps mentioned below.I’m performing this task on my Mac OS, and for the Windows process will be the same, with difference of Key stroke.I had to repeat the process 10 times to make it work, and finally my i Pad was restored and updated to latest i OS 7.0.4 firmware.You might need to set up your i Pad as a new device, and later on you can use restore backup feature of i Tunes to restore all apps and i Pad settings back to your updated i Pad.
Step 7: If you get a popup message informing you that i Tunes will update your i Phone/i Pad/i Pod touch to i OS 8.0 and will verify with Apple. Step 8: It will then show you the release notes for i OS 8. Then click on the Agree button for the terms and conditions.
Update 1: Readers are reporting problems downloading the firmware files as well.
It looks like Apple’s servers are overloaded due to the surge in traffic. Update 2: Updated the download links with model numbers.
Step 9: i Tunes will now download the firmware file (which can take a long time depending on your internet connection as it can be as big as 2.1GB).
After downloading the file, it will process it, extract the software, prepare the device for software update, and install the update.
