    I tried to update the software on new ipad mini and it has asked me to connect it to itunes. I did this and now its saying my ipad is running in recovery mode and it must be restored and updated first. I have clicked on restore and update then it extracts the files but wont go any further...just keeps bringing up error code 3014 and I can't get the ipad working at all

    Hi there and welcome to iMore.

    Errors 3000-3999 (3004, 3013, 3014, 3018, 3164, 3194, and so on): Error codes in the 3000 range generally mean that iTunes cannot contact the update server (gs.apple.com) on ports 80 or 443.

    1 Update to the latest version of iTunes.
    2 Verify the computer's date and time are accurate.
    3 Check that your security or firewall software is not interfering with ports 80 or 443, or with the server gs.apple.com.
    4 Follow Troubleshooting security software. Often, uninstalling third-party security software will resolve these errors.
    5 An entry in your hosts file may be redirecting requests to gs.apple.com (see "Unable to contact the iOS software update server gs.apple.com" above).
    6 Internet proxy settings can cause this issue. If you are using a proxy, try without using one.
    7 Test restoring while connected to a known-good network.
