Don't know anything about the iPad but on an iPhone you can't remove iTunes and several other programs. iTunes is awful.

I meant remove it from my computer, once I reset and sync my media onto the ipad. I can't think of any reason to keep itunes on my computer. I don't update my media very often, so syncing isn't an issue.

You need iTunes if you ever want to restore the os. But I suppose you could always re-download it when you need it. It's not necessary for regular use of the iPad.

you don't need itunes to use an ipad/iphone (of course it's basically just a phone that can surf the internet, or a laptop without a keyboard without an itunes account...so not sure why anyone wouldn't).

but my mother in law and father in law both have iphones and ipads and neither has an itunes account.

Also this is a first generation ipad so the ios will only go up to 5.1.1. All sexy aps require at least ios 6 and some require ios 7. So no netflix, no mlb at bat, no twitter, no facebook.

There has to be a way around this, right?

Not really. You can jailbreak the OS, but the hardware is limited.

good luck deleting it from your system.

It's literally like a 100 step process to fully eliminate it from your computer
