Getting my mom an ipad1, iOS question

My father in law is letting me have his old ipad1 to give to my elderly mother...once he wipes it...will it still have iOS 5.1 installed or will I have to update, and if so, can it be done OTA with ipad1?

Thanks in advance

It will have iOS 5.1.1, which is the last version of iOS that a first generation iPad can run.

iPad 1 supports iOS 5 which has OTA updates so yes.

Thanks, I wasn't sure if the "wipe" would take it back to the original iOS version or not.

Gotcha, I thought the ota ability was related to the iOS but was afraid if resetting and wiping took it back to iOS 3 then I'd have to sync w iTunes

Questions answered , thanks!
