It is my grand daughters birthday and I have bought her an I-Pad Mini I would like to set it up before I give it to her. Is it possible to set up an account for her with her mothers details before I give it to her. I would like to install some running Apps on it before I give it to her.
Yes, you can do that. If she is going to use her mother's Apple ID (like my daughter does), then that will work fine. You will need to enter her mother's credit card details as well in order to be able to buy apps with her mom's ID. If that's OK with mom, there is no reason why you cannot set it up that way for her.
