Importance of iPad Protection: Why you need a case
Nov 02, 2023
There are two kinds of technology users in this world; those who protect their expensive, often fragile devices with an appropriate level of protection, and those who throw caution to the wind and hold their cracked screens with pride. Deciding which one you are usually comes down to how you use your mobile technology.
We don't put cases on our televisions because they don't go anywhere. Conversely, smartphones and tablets aren't stationary devices, they travel with us on planes, trains and automobiles. Protecting these devices while simultaneously making them more ergonomic is a no-brainer. Specifically, picking the right Apple iPad protective case can not only extend the life of your iPad, but add a level of comfort and functionality to your favorite device.
5 benefits of buying a protective case for your iPad
- Better grip
Modern iPads are made of the sleekest, thinnest materials. A slim piece of glass over aluminum shells makes for a trendy, clean device. But it also makes for a fragile, slippery one susceptible to drops and accidental breaks. Adding a case adds improved grip, whether through a no-slip texture or deployable wings that allow for ergonomic viewing no matter how you're holding your iPad.
Dust and particles can easily enter an unprotected iPad and over time, can affect ports and performance. A case adds an extra layer of protection against dirt and grime. While a screen protector eliminates fingerprints on the screen, but more importantly, scratches.
- Resale value
Naturally, the better condition your iPad is in when it comes time to upgrade, the better chance you'll have of netting a good price for your previous model. Buying a good case is a small investment to protect your larger investment of an iPad 10th generation tablet, or any other version.
- Your style
Cases come in all sorts of materials and styles. A case offers protection as much as it offers a way to fully personalize your iPad while protecting it. Slap some stickers on your iPad case and you're ready to show off your punk rock style without worrying about cracking your screen.
- Ultimate damage protection
But let's be honest. While style is nice, keeping it clean is ok, the real reason you slap a case on your iPad is to protect it from damage due to everyday wear and tear. A strong case eliminates breaks from drops, scrapes when you set your iPad on questionable surfaces, and from any other negative physical interaction you can think of.
Shopping for an iPad case
When picking out an iPad case you'll want to focus on a few different features. Personal style aside, evaluating these four categories will help you find the perfect protection for your iPad.
Material — choosing the right case often comes down to needs. If you need more style than pure protection, then leather might be the way to go. If you want something strong, a polycarbonate case would be better. If you want something with a multitude of design options with mild protection, then silicone or neoprene cases would be your choice.
Level of protection — the more protection you are after, the bulkier your case is going to get. However, that doesn't mean it has to be unwieldy. There are specific cases out there that offer solid protection as much as ergonomic features that lighten the impact of such a strong case.
Functionality — does your new iPad case have cool little wings on all sides that make for easy, ergonomic grip no matter the angle? Can these wings also be used as stands? If not, and you find yourself wishing your case had a bit more functionality than just protection, you may want to start your search somewhere else.
Price — cheap cases can cost as little as 20 bucks, while more expensive cases can get upwards of $100. This doesn't always equate to level of protection, as plenty of beautiful leather cases with keyboards can cost hundreds while offering little protection. Find the case that fits your budget, knowing that protecting your iPad is the priority.
