Reasons for Not Checking updates in iPad
There can be various reasons why your iPad is not taking updates or is not checking out the updates by Apple.
Some of them have been listed below and discussed.
1. iPad Unable to Take Update
If your iPad Software fails to support any new software or patch that has been released as updates by Apple then it will stop taking updates or checking for updates.
2. Your Network is Unstable
Similar to every other device, your iPad also requires a strong and steady flow of internet to update its software.
If it can not get that then it will not be able to update its software.
