  • Use an enclosure with your iPad to avoid scratches and abrasions.
  • Before cleaning the iPad, unplug all cables and power it off.
  • Use a soft, dry, lint-free cloth to wipe the iPad’s screen. The iPad has an oil repellent screen and the cloth removes oil left by hands.
  • Overcharging can reduce battery life. Charge the iPad only when needed and do not keep it continuously connected to power.
  • If connectors and ports don’t join with reasonable ease, they probably don’t match. Do not force them together.
  • Never open your iPad in an attempt to repair it yourself. Disassembling the iPad voids its warranty.
  • The AppleCare+ Protection Plan may be purchased when you buy your hardware from the ShopKeep Store. Visit Apple Support if your iPad requires repair.
