Care of the iPad

 
Keep the iPad mini away from the following: 
  • Liquids 
    • Getting liquids like water, soda, or juice will damage the electronic parts of the device.
  • Food 
    • This will keep the iPad mini from getting dirty both inside and out.
  • Magnets 
    • Heavy magnets have a chance of damaging the iPad and the content saved on the device.
  • Extreme Heat or Cold 
    • You never want to have your iPad in a temperature above 95 or below 32 degrees Fahrenheit.  Either extreme may cause the iPad mini to stop working or lose the effectiveness of the battery.
