We can live and work exactly how and where we want because of things like our tablets. Tablets are like the baby that our laptops and phones have. What a great piece of technology! It lets us do more complicated tasks on a bigger screen while on a train, in a coffee shop, in the car, etc. Your tablet has become a part of your daily life, and you may have even given it a nickname.
Here are some easy and proven tips that will guide you to keep your tablet in excellent condition
1. Get a High-Quality Case to Protect it
A good protective case keeps your device from breaking if you drop it or scratch the screen. Moreover, it has many other uses (depending on the type). But even so, do not carry your tablet under your arm or on top of your lunch box. Your tablet deserves to travel in style!
2. Think about Getting a Screen Protector
Most tablet cases have a flap that goes over the screen to protect it. Not got one of these? Think about using a screen protector. It won’t change how your tablet works, but it will protect your screen from scratches or, worse, a broken screen if you drop it accidentally.
3. Use a Soft Tablet Cloth to Clean it
Once a week, gently wipe your screen. Clean with a soft, lint-free tablet cloth or a jewelry cleaning cloth. Do not use toilet paper! There are great sprays for cleaning screens on the market that can help you get rid of dust and dirt even better. Try it out!
4. Charge it the Right Amount
You might not believe it, but it is possible to charge a tablet too much. So, it is not recommended to leave it on the charger overnight. Take it off the charger so the battery can work at its best. Apple recommends letting your tablet charge through once a month (allow it to run dead and then power it to the max).
5. Say No to the Weather
Keep your tablets out of the rain and away from other liquids, like a bath, a spilled drink, etc. But don’t forget that extreme weather. Heat or cold is also bad for our devices. Do not put your tablet in direct sunlight. Keep it at room temperature.
6. Update its Software
Like any other electronic device, it is not just about how it looks. Software updates ensure that bugs and security holes are fixed and that the hardware of a tablet can work better. So, do not forget to run updates when they’re needed.
How many times have you almost dropped your phone in the toilet or the pool? If you are like me, you have done it several times and you cannot keep track. Every year, several people lose their phones because of water damage. Worst of all, your device’s insurance won’t cover this damage. Therefore, get a waterproof case for your tablet or phone if you like to go to the beach or are careless around water.
Your kids probably love and use your tablet more than you do. But they are not as gentle as you are. It means your tablet or phone is dragged around or drops a lot. Kids break a lot of things. There are cases made with your child in mind. They are usually made up of fragile materials like rubber or silicon and have handles to help kids hold onto them.
9. Sitting on
Most of the time, it is easy to keep your phone in the back pocket of your pants. It puts it between you and a chair, where it can get crushed. The worst part is that you cannot save yourself when you sit and realize something bad has happened. The best way to keep your tablet safe is to avoid putting it in your back pocket. Get a rugged case if you do not have anywhere else to put it. So there is something between you and your phone.
Make sure you do everything you can to keep your tablet safe. You can get a case for your tablet, put a screen protector on it, or put it in your front pocket.
