Getting Started with your iPad.

iPad Case

With your new iPad in hand, the most important thing you’ll want to do first is protect it.

Following the video will allow you to correctly fit their case, protecting it from all those small bumps and knocks.

Alongside the main case is the ‘shield’ which as shown, can be used to both further protect the iPad, or as a stand for more comfortable use when typing, reading, watching videos, etc.

When fitting the case, be sure to securely attach the rubber seal.

If not fully sealed, the case may not fit in the protective shield, or will be difficult to remove; as well as leaving the iPad at risk of water damage.

Cables & Chargers

To further protect the iPad for damage, only use the provided or otherwise official apple chargers and cables.
Other brands, unofficial, or fake chargers are more likely to lead to serious damage.
