    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!
