iPad & Kindle

Download Kindle to older iPad Mini 2

I recently got my sister an iPad Mini 2.  Can’t go to the library and needed some way to read books. Once she got it and tried to download Kindle, didn’t work.  I searched some videos for a solution and from them figured it out.  A couple of points were very unclear so I made my own video on how to do this.  The text on how to do this is below the video if you want to just read.

 

Download Kindle to older iPad Mini 2

When you have a situation that you have obtained an older iPad and cannot download certain Apps as they have been updated. 

  1. Have your refurbished iPad Mini 2
  2. Have a friends newer iPad Mini (4 or whatever)
  3. In your Apps, log out of your account.
  4. Open friends iPad and look for the app (in this case, Kindle).
  5. Hold your finger on it until it starts flashing and the ‘x’ appears.
  6. Click on the ‘x’ to delete. (Don’t worry, you will load again; all will be good.)
  7. Still in your friends iPad, go to Apps and click on icon top right.
  8. Log out of account.
  9. Log into your account on your friends iPad. 
  10. Search Apps for Kindle. 
  11. Download it to your friends iPad. Remember that you need to be in your account while doing this.
  12. Log out of your account on your friends iPad.
  13. Go back to your iPad and log back into your account.
  14. Go to Apps and click on ‘Purchased’ at the bottom. 
  15. Kindle should not be there with the little cloud thingy with an arrow pointing down.  Click that.
  16. You will get a message asking if you want to download for this iPad. Say yes. Download should then happen.
  17. Then log into Kindle on your iPad using your Amazon account and you are good to go.
