The first generation iPad (with the thick, curved back) can only run iOS 5.1.1 - In this case, the Sonos app will likely not be available in the App Store and will not be able to connect to an up-to-date Sonos system.

On June 11, 2012, it was announced that iOS 6 would not be released for the first-generation iPad, making iOS 5.1.1 the final operating system officially available for the device.

I believe the app, if it can be installed (search the app store), will only serve as a music controller, it won't have most of the functions that you'd normally expect due to the fact that the version of iOS that it runs is so out of date.

So you'll be able to start playing a playlist, stop playing, skip forward and back, but that's about it.

You can't use the official Sonos App - but search in app store for 3rd party program called Sonopad
