iPads have become a world wide rage now a days, everyone wants one, has one, or is about to buy one. But not everyone knows exactly what they should do to keep these handy little gadgets safe and secure from all the damages that can befall them due to dropping, moisture, dust, and everyday wear and tear from general use and handling.
- Cases: These are box like things that your iPad is placed in to protect it from hazards like dust, water, dirt and anything else that could get on or in it when you are not using your devise. With these you must remove your iPad before you can use it and they are usually bulky and on the heavy side.
- Skins: These iPad covers are fitted to your model of iPad and form a protective barrier around the back and sides of the devise while still allowing you to use it without having to remove the skin. Although these do not usually protect from the elements. These skins are made of materials like silicone.
- Shells: These are a lot like skins in how they protect the back and sides of your iPad, but also like the skin it will not protect the screen from damage. The skins protect your device with materials like hardened rubber so that all the bumps and daily jarring will not do it any harm.
- Sleeves: These are used in conjunction with other forms of iPad covers like cases and bags. They are made of soft fabric to help protect your iPad from getting scratched and cracked, especially the screen which is very fragile.They will not protect your iPad if it gets dropped although it does soften the impact a little.
- Bags: These are the iPad covers that offer you the option to carry all of your gear in one place. They do help to ensure your screen stays unscratched, especially if you use it with the sleeve. They also help to give a small barrier against moisture, but should not be completely relied upon to fully protect your device, and bags only offer a small amount of protection from drops and jarring.
- Folio Cases: These types of iPad covers offer all around protection. They also allow you to just flip open and use so you never have to remove your iPad from its protection. These are lightweight and will help to cushion your devise in the case of drops and jarring, and they will keep your iPad dry and safe from the elements as you can quickly flip it closed when needed.
Most of these iPad covers come in many different colors and designs to fit your unique personality and style. Check to make sure that you get the right iPad covers for your particular model, since they are all different and not all covers will fit the model you own or plan to buy.
