iPad Care and Protection

Review: Worth Ave. Group iPad Insurance

After dropping several hundred dollars on an iPad, most users will be interested in protecting their device. Apple's tablet is designed to go anywhere, however this also means a high level of risk for breakage, theft and even water damage. The obvious way to protect the iPad is to purchase a case or cover, however this is not a full-proof solution.

The included iPad warranty from Apple will protect against manufacturing defects, but AppleCare doesn't cover broken touch screens, vandalism or theft. Statistics show that most tablet and laptop computer failures are due to physical damage.

Worth Ave. Group provides insurance policies to cover a wide variety of adverse events that could happen to your iPad, including theft. AppleCare will not cover any damages from handling, much less damage from fire, floods, earthquakes, tornadoes or lightning strikes.

Review: SquareTrade iPad Insurance

Well you've just spent between $499 and $829 for your iPad, how can you be sure your investment is protected in the event of an accident? Apple's tablet is extremely portable, which also means exposure to the elements and a constant risk of breakage in transit. The included iPad warranty from Apple will protect against manufacturing defects, but AppleCare doesn't cover cracked screens or water damage.

Statistics indicate that most tablet and notebook failures are due to accidental damage. SquareTrade, a licensed insurance provider, offers iPad protection that fully covers accidental damage from handling (ADH), among other things. The company has been in business since 1999 and has sold millions of warranties.

According to SquareTrade, "drops, spills, water damage, battery failures or any other failures from normal use or accidental damage" are all covered under their plans. This is the key difference between SquareTrade's insurance and other coverage options such as AppleCare.

What is the best way to clean my iPad screen?

The multi-touch glass screen is the single most important part of your iPad. Unlike most device displays, you not only view the interface through it, the screen is the interface. Even with the fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating, the iPad screen will get dirty quickly and easily.

To clean your iPad screen, never use any type of cleaning solvent such as Windex or similar chemical products. Use only water.
