Who doesn’t enjoy a few tips every now and then – especially when it comes to your favorite Apple products? We all want to extend the lives of our devices and make the most of them, so, whether you get a fourth generation iPad or an iPad Mini, there are a few things you can keep in mind about your tablet.
To get a protective case or not
One of the first things to consider is whether or not you want to get a protective case or a cover for your iPad or iPad mini.
“I have found that Apple makes some of the best cases for the device,” iResQ’s Keith Melendez says. “Apple’s Smart Case is a good choice for those who want more protection for their iPad than just a cover (like Apple’s Smart Cover). The Smart Case provides full protection of the device, including the back and the corners.”
Apple users who travel are often at high risk for theft, so if you plan on traveling with your iPad, it could be a good idea to select a special kind of case. There are cases out there that look like simple notebooks when closed, disguising the fact that you are carrying a pricey device at all, and these might be a deterrent for potential theft of the device.
Another thing to keep in mind is the fact that while your iPhone charger will work to charge your iPad device as well, it is not an efficient way to do it. In fact, the part of the iPhone charger that plugs into the wall is smaller and has a lower wattage than the designated iPad charger, meaning it will take significantly longer to charge your iPad with the designated iPhone charger. It’s a good idea to consider what you’re using to charge the iPad. You don’t want to wait two days for your iPad to charge with an iPhone charger when you can charge it in a matter of hours with the iPad’s stock charger.
Where did my phone go? Who took it?
Last but not least, be sure to install and setup Apple’s Find My iPhone app because it works for your iPad in the same way it works with the iPhone. This tool can really help with recovering lost or stolen devices. If you opt not to get a case and any damage occurs to your device, iResQ’s iPad repair services can get things back to normal in no time.
