Now that you finally own your dream iPad, you are willing to go the extra mile just to protect it. Nothing is more heartbreaking than seeing, even a tiny scratch on the surface of your new and still shiny, fresh from the store iPad. The worst that could happen is that you accidentally break the screen. This is one thing that you would not want to happen so soon.
How to Protect your iPad
The great thing about this is that there are a lot of options for you to be able to protect your most recent investment purchase. There are pouches, covers and bags that you can purchase. However, to warn you, it does not come cheap. You must be willing to shell out as much as you did for the accessories that you bought like the Sydnee iPad charging station as well as the Thunderbolt cable. There are cases that you might have to shell out a hundred dollars or more for a protective covering for your tablet PC. But you must not think about the cost as it will not be able to give value to the peace of mind that you get knowing that your tablet PC is protected all the time.
Using Protective Gears for your iPad
But since Apple knows that people spend extra for these protective gears for their iPads, they have incorporated smart covers to their product. The newer versions have a better one as it also protects the back portion of the iPad and not just the front screen. The older ones only protect the back portion thus leaving the back exposed to elements that could scratch or ruin it. This is most common especially when you bring it around with you always and the end of the Thunderbolt cable or any other sharp object comes into contact with the surface.
For those who are unfortunate to have the old models with only the front smart cover, there are other options for protecting it. One is to use a pouch where you can place your iPad. Choose the one with the soft cloth so that it would not scratch the iPad. Also, get the one with foam stitched in between the cloth for extra protection. It may cost you more but knowing that your iPad is protected all the time even if it is inside your bag along with all your other stuff is worth every cent you paid for. There are a lot of stores that have these kinds of pouches and even the store where you bought your unit might have a few designs that you can choose from.
One last thing when purchasing your protective gear, aside from your Kanex Thunderbolt cable, is to check if it already includes a protective screen with the bundle. This is important as this will help protect the screen from scratches. If not, then go buy one too.
