how can i activate my ipad without the latest version of itunes?
How can we know what to suggest of you don't tell us which iPad you have?
A brand new iPad 3, iPad 4 or iPad Mini can be activated via WiFi right out of the box because it should have iOS 5 on it at the very least. The 4 and the Mini should have iOS 6.
You could also download the latest verison of itunes onto a PC and then use it to activate.
