For the iPad that’s carrying your precious iPad, there is nothing you need to do but plug it into your car’s charging port. This is what I call ipad carrying case. I use it with all of my iPads and have found it to be the best for keeping my iPad protected.
If you don’t have any of these, you can always buy one of the ‘for all’ cases, but that also means you have to be willing to pay the premium to have them.
I have some time to kill so I can’t really go into too much detail about this, but I would say that this is probably the most utilitarian case you are going to come across. It is actually a little smaller than most cases, but it is also the most compact. No matter how your iPad is setup, it will always be protected by this case, and when you are ready to take it out, it is a great way to prevent scratches and smudges.
If you are going to carry it on your person, definitely get a case with a built in carrying handle, and even if it is a case with a carrying handle, you will probably never use it. But if you are going to carry it in your pocket, you can’t forget the case. A well-crafted case is going to make your iPad easy to carry in any situation. And it is a good idea to have a case that fits comfortably for even larger devices.
If you are planning on carrying an iPad as a daily device, you better be ready to take it out and put it down. I was on a flight with my iPad and it took me two minutes to put it down in my carry-on baggage. I think that would be a good rule of thumb for any iPad user. Just be aware that a case might stop you from taking it out when you need it. We all need a case.
If you’re on a plane you want to check your iPad after you sit on it a few minutes. I’ve had some pretty intense moments when I was using my iPad without a case and then with my iPad in my bag. With some cases you can actually just pop it out.
The iPad has been the number one gadget for the last five years, but there’s a lot that is really great about it. It has amazing battery life, a fast touch screen, and a great app store. But it also has security issues. A recent study, in fact, showed that the majority of iPad owners felt their personal information had been compromised when they used a device with a screen as small as an iPad.
But at least with a case, you can take your iPad into any coffee shop or hotel room, so you can actually use it as a normal, pocket-sized device, not just an iPad.
iPad carrying cases have made the iPad more user friendly in many ways, but there are some security concerns. For sure they will be a useful tool for those who want to bring their iPads to places where they don’t have any other option, but there are some issues with the cases that need to be addressed. The most important (and least talked about) is the issue of security, as the iPad is not an iPhone like smartphone.
The iPad is a secure device, so while you can carry it in your pocket, it is not as secure as the iPhone or a BlackBerry. But the iPad is quite a bit smaller than a smartphone, so that is no excuse for not having a secure case.
