(UPDATE) iOS 9.3 causing problems for iPad 2 users

iPad 2

A number of iPad 2 owners have reported problems with installing and activating the latest version of iOS, iOS 9.3.

According to this thread users are experiencing problems with activating the operating system, which is required to proceed with the update. Even though internet connections are working fine, authentication messages keep popping up out of nowhere.

Now most of us probably know that whenever Apple releases an update their servers get overloaded. However even waiting a while it doesn’t seem to fix the problem.

One solution is to reinstall the update via iTunes, so if any of you guys are facing this issue you can try this and let us know if it works.

UPDATE: Apple has provided the following statement to iMore:

Updating some iOS devices (iPhone 5s and earlier and iPad Air and earlier) to iOS 9.3 can require entering the Apple ID and password used to set up the device in order to complete the software update,” an Apple spokesperson told iMore. “In some cases, if customers do not recall their password, their device will remain in an inactivated state until they can recover or reset their password. For these older devices, we have temporarily pulled back the update and will release an updated version of iOS 9.3 in the next few days that does not require this step.”

Update your old Kindle to stay online

Amazon Kindle

We all love to read books and we love our Kindles as well. Kindle updates always give you some great features. But this update isn’t something you would want to ignore. Why? Amazon is warning owners of Kindles from 2013 including the original Kindle Paperwhite to update in order to stay connected. Amazon also stated that you should update your Kindle software before March 22nd if you want to stay online and download some great books to read.

If you don’t update your Kindle before March 22nd, you still have the chance of updating your Kindle. But you have to do it manually, by downloading the update from the Amazon website and transferring it through a USB cable to your Kindle.

Xbox rolling out update for Xbox One

Xbox One

Microsoft stated that they will be rolling out a new update for the Xbox One. The update isn’t much but just a few additions such as hiding games, pinning stuff and more.

The Xbox update will let you pin stuff and it can be re-arranged so that you can get your favourite apps, games and stuff in the order you like. The update will also let you hide games that you have installed so that you can hide whatever games you don’t really play often and play them whenever you feel like playing them again.

The Xbox update will also feature a Gamerscore which tracks your score and also lets you see your friend’s score as well. The Xbox update will be available for free. The update will download automatically when you are not using it.


Yes, after 3 years, the PSP receives a firmware update (6.61)

Who says updates for the PSP were dead? Back in August 2011 when we all thought 6.60 was the last firmware for the PSP, we were all wrong. Apparently another update in the name of 6.61 came out yesterday which is said to improve stability. Pretty common for Sony to say that right?

Actually, remember that 3.36 update the Vita recently got? We wonder if it’s something to do with PSP exploits that had to be patched. It probably must have been that. Cuz we updated our PSP and we don’t see a single change apart from the version number.

We were shocked when we heard of a new update for the PSP since production for the PSP is now dead. What is your reaction to this unexpected update? Did it break homebrew? Leave a comment down below. Also, here is a video explaining everything about the update:
