- iPad protection
It might be worth looking at putting a toughened glass screen protector on it, they’re substantially thicker than the plastic ones, which ought to make it more robust, then just put a clear flexible bumper-type case on to protect the case edges in the event of drops.Posted 8 months ago
That’s what I’ve got on my 10.5″ iPad Pro, which I’d suggest is significantly more expensive and I’m happy with using those items.
I had an Otterbox on my iP6+, the screen protector was shite, it was thin, bowed up in the middle so required extra pressure just to do basic operations, so I ripped it out and put a glass screen protector on instead, and the phone now has a similar clear silicon wrap-around case to the pad, I just got so fed up with the bulk of the Otterbox.
I really can’t think of anything that’s going to add more protection than the glass protector I use, it’s around 0.5mm thick, much thicker than the flimsy plastic ones, which only really guard against fingerprints and scratches.
This is the protector I’ve got on my pad:
There are even cheaper ones, around £2-3.00.
Even better deal here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Clear-TPU-Gel-Case-Tempered-Glass-Screen-Protector-For-Apple-iPad-Pro-9-7-/201896157963?var=501904440696&hash=item2f01f2e30b:m:m2CGicpCWrnPI4uFKzPGsYA
Glass screen protector and clear gel case for £2.47!
And free postage, to boot.
I don’t think there’s much more you can do, really, but if the screen protector saves the screen at the cost of the protector, then it’s a win all round.
May be a daft question but is there anything out there that really gives a high standard of protection for iPads? My sisters lad is autistic and pretty much lives on his iPad, but he’s also super clumsy. I took it for a new screen for her on Saturday, on Wednesday he dropped a fidget spinner on it and smashed the new screen again!
She’s obviously at her wits end at £70 each time he does a screen.
So other than saying no more iPads, any ideas what we can do? I did look at an Otter Box but couldn’t see a model for the basic iPad.Posted 8 months ago
The Fire Kids would be a great solution. Unfortunately my sister is firmly in the apple camp. Plus, my nephew is 15 years old, 6’2″ and 15 stone. Although he has some learning difficulties he still gets the same peer pressure as any other 15 yo kid. I’ve seen less clumsy gorillas than him. Hoping a tempered glass screen protector and something like an otterbox in combination might just give her a chance.Posted 8 months agostevextcMember
