Answer by David
Connect your iPad to your computer’s iTunes and copy any purchases to your computer’s iTunes via
File > Transfer Purchases.
You should also backup the device (right-click the iPad ‘device’ and select ‘back up’), and copy off any important documents, file, notes etc (e.g. by email, the file sharing section at the bottom of the Apps tab in iTunes, wifi, whatever the apps that you use support) – the update process should backup and restore the content but it’s best to be safe and try and minimise any data/content loss if the update doesn’t go smoothly.
