Yea, unfortunately, this is my moms iPad and she doesn't do any of that, she's not very tech savy. I just saw that she had an update and clicked on install and this happened.
I set her up with icloud so this doesn't happen again though. But, god this really sucks because she just lost a lot of really important photos.
