  1. I have two iPads, one is a 9.7-in. iPad Pro 1st generation, with 128GB of remaining space and the other is a 10.2-inch iPad 8th generation, with 16.5GB of remaining space. Both have iOS 15.7 installed and both WILL NOT upgrade to iOS 16. The both say they are “up to date”! Why will neither one update, even though both are on the list that will allow updates to iOS 16?

  2. Hi, do you have advice for people who want to continue using their non-updateable phone or iPad without it becoming unusable? Would be great to give advice to prevent / block app updates which would then prevent the user from being able to use the app, if that is possible. Many thanks for the info!
