I've just bought a new 3rd Gen iPad as a gift. I assume it comes with iOs 5.1 installed on it. I want to install iOS 5.1.1 on it as I'd rather not use the Maps app provided in iOS 6. I know that iTunes will only offer the latest version of iOS (6.0.1 at this time.)

How can I download and install iOS 5.1.1 to a new iPad? I am not willing to jailbreak it.

There is a lot of information covering this exact topic in a question that I asked a while back: https://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/65952/how-to-upgrade-iphone-3gs-to-ios-5-now-that-ios-6-is-out

The accepted answer provided me with this link: http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/

Hope this helps!

  • Thanks! And after all that, it turns out it came with 5.1.1 preinstalled anyway. Commented Nov 22, 2012 at 22:43
