    Is this possible at all?
    Been given one and its on 5.1.1
    I was going to give it to my boy but cbeebies app and others require iOS 7
    Seems not but I thought I would ask, seems a shame to make it redundant..
    Many thanks

    Nope - 5.1.1 is the highest you will get on an iPad 1 I'm afraid. Good ole Apple do this to make old hardware redundant.

    Was going to say - might be worth jailbreaking. Plenty of tweaks out there that may help speed things up for you by removing the unwanted crap. That Grayd00r looks nice - don't have any devices I can try it out on.

    Ah - that may be an issue. A lot of apps now have a minimum iOS requirement - is this what's causing the problem?

    Yep..it's the cbeebies stuff he likes playing and there isn't an older version of it as far as I know. I might still keep it though, ideal for camping etc..

    Yeah I'm guessing the CBeebies app was a recent one so no "old" builds will exist. You could try spoofing the iOS version to get it installed. Not sure if it would work but there are tutorials on spoofing the iOS version like this : [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Seems it's hit and miss if it will work for apps that need higher iOS though. Not sure I'd try it. Might be worth just picking up a cheap Android tablet

    I know the feeling. I have a 3G iPad (With a cracked screen), an iPad Mini and my 3 yr old loves watching videos with dolls in on them. So I bought her a Hudl 2 in pink with a pink rubber case thinking this would get her off them but no.... Give her the Hudl and she screams "ipad ipad! I want the iPad!!" lmao. She knows!
