Can it fit an iPad?
While not designed to carry one, I just confirmed that an iPad will indeed fit inside the main compartment of the MS Tour. It's a slightly snug fit (I've got my iPad in a Targus folio cover/stand) but it will fit and still allow additional items to be stowed in that compartment. Because of the iPad's weight, I highly recommend using the MS Strapettes to help balance the load on your back.
I am a big fan of my Tour and have placed many miles on that thing. It's a great day hike bag, keeping in mind how much water you'll want to carry for a particular hike. For all day affairs, I'll use my Camelbak day pack that allows me to carry in excess of 3 liters of water.
But again, the Tour is my go-to pack most of the time for day hikes.

Not without minor modifications
Yes, it's one of the BIGGEST lumbar packs out there, that's why I bought it,
But, unlike some backpacks specially designed to carry laptops, iPads etc.. there isn't any padding at the bottom of the pack to shield the laptop in case you drop the pack.
Yes, but the iPad will need a separate protective pouch/case.
Yes it can easily fit an ipad
Yes, in fact I carry my 10" Toshiba Thrive tablet in it.
