    I'm not aware you can skip it.....unless you have an Apple Store nearby, they will do it for you.......otherwise, download the latest version of iTunes before you plug the iPad in.

    It's telling you that you need to connect your iPad to your PC using the white cable that came with it. Make sure that iTunes is installed on the PC first and any updates are installed.

    When you first connect your PC will load drivers to allow it to connect. This will happen automatically so just let it carry on.

    If iTunes isn't already open the iPad should open it but I recommend opening it manually when first setting up.
    You will be given instructions as the iPad connects to iTunes and it allows you to name it yourself if you wish.

    After following the instructions it will backup the iPad and synchronise with iTunes. Any music loaded into iTunes will be copied onto the iPad.

    During the process your iPad will display it's usual screen for the first time. Don't interrupt it till it says synchronisation is complete. Alongside the iPad name in iTunes is a small icon looking like an arrow. Right click on it and select eject. This ensures a clean disconnect but shouldn't be necessary if synch is complete.

    Disconnect the cable and enjoy the wonderful world of iPad!!

    If you've synced and let it do it's thing, you probably have already updated to the latest version. You can see it in the main screen, by selecting your iPad, when it's hooked up, in the left sided pane of iTunes.

    The easiest way to check the iOS version is when you are synching the iPad. Select the device in iTunes and the front page shows the status including version.

    In Safari press and hold on the picture and then select "Save Image." The image will then be placed in the Photos app.
