Like many Apple products, the iPad is renowned for its quality… as well as its price. Luckily, users won’t have to pay for a new iPad for years if they properly care for the one they already own. Here are a few ways you can keep your Apple tablet in great condition so it truly lasts.
Buy it Physical Protection
Though reliable, iPads can also be delicate: a bad fall could break or impair your device’s functionality. A case shouldn’t be considered as just an accessory, but a must for your product. Since iPads vary in size, make sure the case, in addition to providing maximum protection, is also made specifically for your tablet’s dimensions. A screen protector is also a good idea, even if your chosen case also covers the front of your iPad, as protectors provide extra durability and keep dirt and bacteria off the screen. However, if you do forgo a protector and your screen breaks, worry not: just look up an iPad repair specialist in your area (e.g. by typing ipad glass replacement houston into a web browser).
Be Responsible With Power Usage
It’s not a good idea to always have your iPad on or to have it constantly plugged in: both acts will make your battery drain faster in the long run. Only plug your iPad in when its charge runs low, and turn off your tablet often, which will free up memory it’s accumulated during use.
Don’t Be a Storage Pack Rat
If you’ve had an iPad long enough, chances are it’s become cluttered with downloads and apps you no longer use. Go through your apps regularly (e.g. once a month) and uninstall the glut, and stick the files you don’t immediately need (including photos) in your iCloud. Like in any device, too much used space can hinder speed and performance.
If you’re dreading having to pay another huge sum in a few years, rest easy: proper care can keep your iPad going strong for quite some time.
