Today my Ipad said that an update was due, so I let it go ahead.
I now cannot see ANY of my calendar notes. This is for all the previous years as well as this current year.
Is there a clever person out there who could help me recover all this data?
It is actually important that I can see my medical notes and appointments.
Thank you un advance.

Hello Auntie Flo, the data will still be accessible in iCloud. If you have access to a PC or laptop you could log into the cloud and read it there. I believe it is possible to copy it back to your iPad but I will have to try and find some info on the process.

Do you have an iPhone? You might find it is still there if you haven’t done an update .

I lost all my normal notes when I did an iPad update . I was furious and a google search showed that I wasn’t alone .I then remembered that my phone was so ancient that updates were no longer possible and I found my old notes there .

Hi Blossoming and NotAGran55,
I have got it back!!!

I looked on my phone and all info was there.
Then I went back to my Ipad and found a button that said Show All. Pressed that, and Hey Presto, like magic, all info appeared.
Why do they give me a virtual heart attack?

As to the ICloud, as I am such a techno phobic, I am scared of doing something I do not understand, so tend to leave such things to DH.
But, I have sorted it out, with a little help from my friends.
Thanks so much for the little push needed.

Well done Auntyflo but why oh why do these things have to be so flipping mysterious and tricky in the first place? 🐯

Well done AuntyFlo! Glad it’s sorted for you.

Glad it’s ok now I find googling these things will usually talk you through what to do
