    Does upgrading iPad2 to iOS 5 will corrupt apps that are already installed?

    If I upgrade my iPad 2 to iOS 5 will it hamper my apps already installed in the older version or not? Is iOS 5 better than iOS 4?

    when you have upgraded your iPad to the latest version of the ios software obviously you may loose some data.
    Generally when you upgrade your iPad with the latest version of ios then it lead to restore all your default settings.
    So it is better to create a better backup before upgrading your iPad.
    Create a perfect backup so that it should posses all sorts of apps and the files that your iPad posses.
    After upgrading your iPad to the latest version of the ios then have the backup from the itunes or the icloud that you have made backup with.
    Hope this will be helpful to you.............

    To prevent it You need to take a backup of your current precious data.
    Here just connect your device with I tunes and take backup.

    After Upgradation All you need to do is just connect your device with I tunes and restore that back up to your device
    .
    In this way you have no chance to loose your Data or Apps.
