I want to set up a new iPad for a gift on my home PC.  However (after setup), the iPad will be permanantly located in another state.  Will the person be able to access iTunes, apps, and sync the iPad on their home PC? 

iPad 2

    No. The lucky person should have his/her own Apple ID.

    Sharing Apple ID is restricted to family members in the same household.

    Honestly? Half the fun of having it is setting it up, so if you want to gift this person with an iPad and a set up, just get them the device and an iTunes gift card...and maybe a link to the manual so they can enjoy exploring their cool new gift.
