    The iPad does not work with Windows 8. It uses an entirely different operating system.

    Kevin you are quite correct, but was that the OPs real question?

    Whilst the Ipad mini is an IOS device, it interfaces with windows PCs and these indeed do use Windows. I don't have Windows 8 on my laptop but I can see no reason why Itunes would not work on a Windows 8 PC and hence the Ipad mini should work with it too.

    Hope that helps

    Good point. In that case, there should be no reason why iTunes will not operate on Windows 8.

    I use windows 8 desktop PC with iPad mini with no problems at all
    Most of the iPad apps lets me transfer files using WiFi between PC and iPad
    Works great and yes iTunes works as well.
