    With iOS 5 and later you don't have to, it has PC/mac free compatibility, if you wish to put music pictures and other apps on it then it is recommended to sync it to iTunes. If you are starting afresh then you don't have to sync it, just back up to iCloud

  • If you have iCloud, you can do it via iCloud. To use the iPad however you do not need to sync anything.
