I have an ipad2 that has ios4.3.5 that I'm trying to update to iOS 6. I'm not able to update because of unidentifiable apps.  I'm assuming that these are apps I tried to get but couldn't open because I needed iOS 5 or higher. These apps are still in my app store always needing updates, but I can't open or update because I don't have iOS 5.  I can't delete them either because they can't be opened or aren't on my screen to hold/let wiggle/X.  I need to remove these apps, but can't figure out how. Please someone tell me how...|ipad-2-update-ios-6-apps-update-open-update-require

I was recently told that there was a little-known way to save space on the ipad (2).  He moved apps into the lower bar and seemed to delete them by double clicking and doing something, but I don't remember what and the apps were not actually deleted. It was suppose to close them, thus saving space.  You did this to the miminal used apps. I could not find anything like this in the manual.   Does anyone know anything about this?...|close-apps-save-space
