As soon as a new update is released to the iPad, the system issues an alert for you to update the system immediately. However, if this message doesn’t appear, or automatic updates are disabled in the Settings app, you’ll need to resort to iPad’s manual update checks. This task is simple and can be done on the tablet, by OTA update (Over The Air, or update over the air) as well as by Mac, connecting the devices with a USB cable.
