These are instructions on how to jailbreak your iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini Retina, and iPad mini on iOS 8.1.3 to iOS 8.4 using TaiG for Mac OS X.

If you aren't already at iOS 8.4 we suggest upgrading to the latest firmware using iTunes. You can find download links for iOS 8.4 here. We've also posted instructions on how to update the firmware of your iOS device. Please note that you must update using iTunes rather than Software Update. If you used Software Update you should do a backup then restore to iOS 8.4 using iTunes.

Step One
Download the latest version of TaiG then double click the dmg to mount it.

Well maybe you should ask in the iPhone article. I have no idea why iClarified is making an individual tutorial for each device.
