what does error message iTunes could not connect to this iPad. the session id is missing.

Go to iTunes or the App Store and scroll down to your Apple ID at the bottom. Make sure your ID is there and that it is correct.

I'm getting this error as well. I'm also getting a massive amount of "other" 33gb on my 128gb iPad. furthermore, my sync sessions take forever generally and sometimes i cut them short. not sure if that is the problem or if you have done that as well.

just like you, the updates take, even though i get the error.

I've tried a full restore and i get the same issue again soon enough.
