Do’s and Don’ts for iPad Owners

Are you a proud owner of an iPad? This popular device has found its way into millions of households and is loved by the young and old alike. However, it is an expensive item and can be damaged easily. Most people realize it can be cracked or scratched from impact or pressure, which is why a case or cover is recommended. But there are other ways to damage your iPad that you may not realize. Here are some Do’s and Don’ts to ensure your iPad has a long, productive life.


  • Clean the screen. The iPad screen has a protective coating that can be damaged if not kept clean. Wipe it clean after use with a slightly damp, soft cloth to remove oils and dirt.
  • Download new updates. Apple updates for your iPad should be downloaded – these updates can improve the performance of your iPad, even saving on battery life.
  • Allow your iPad to use all of its battery once a month. Draining the battery completely down and recharging it to 100% can help improve the life of your battery. Do this once per month.


  • Don’t use chemicals. Never use window cleaner or other chemicals to clean the screen. This could harm your iPad.
  • Never dry with a heat source. If your iPad gets wet, don’t use a hair dryer or external heat source to dry. Dab it dry and let it air dry. Heat can damage the components.
  • Don’t try to repair your iPad. If you have a cracked screen or other issue, don’t try to fix it yourself. Bring it to a professional iPad repair store.

Following these few tips can help you protect your iPad and get the most out of this incredible device.
