3. If there's an update available, tap "Download and Install."

4. If your iPad is low on storage space and there isn't enough room to install the update, your iPad will ask permission to temporarily uninstall apps (the apps will be automatically restored later). Tap "Continue."

5. After the download is complete, tap "Install."
