Should You Get an iPad Case to Use Around the Home?

If you are someone who does not take their iPad outside their house, you might have an internal debate about whether you need an iPad 10.2 case. Can you leave your iPad naked as you use it around your home – is it worth the risk? Or should you invest in a case to avoid asking for trouble? If you fail to prepare, then prepare to fail. Let's see how you can make the most of our iPad around the house and how to protect it.

1. Kitchen

Channel your inner Julia Childs or favorite master chef with the iPad. There are millions of recipes online available for free that recreate favorite childhood dishes or new tasty delights. Filter by dietary requirements such as gluten, dairy, nut-free or keto, high-protein, and Mediterranean diets. Discover traditional dishes worldwide and create themed dinner parties for your loved ones. The kitchen can never be dull when you have the globe's recipes at your fingertips. Some apps and websites even allow you to select the ingredients missing from your pantry and create a shopping list. And if you are unsure about how to cream butter and sugar or whip up egg whites, you can easily find the tutorial you need to save the day. Some apps even include a cooking function, which prevents the iPad screen from dimming. This keeps you from constantly switching it on in the middle of a recipe. Use an iPad 10.2 case with a kickstand to comfortably position the iPad while you cook or magnetically mount it on the refrigerator.

2. Garden

Transform any open space into a lush, green area filled with plants, flowers, and trees. You don't need to have a garden to start growing plants. A balcony or window sill is enough to practice your green thumb. The iPad is your ultimate companion. You can either run a search online or look for videos. Or download apps that allow you to virtually landscape your garden or start your farm. Some apps show you the best season for various vegetables and plants. You can even plan your harvest, work on a backup plan and receive planting reminders by email. Some apps even store the location of your plants for up to five years, allowing you to track your failures and successes. Or, if walking in nature is your thing, use the iPad to discover, name and save native plants, flowers, and shrubs. Some apps allow you to search by a  long list of filters, including growing conditions, seasons, benefits to wildlife, color, and description.

3. Bedroom

After a long day, watch your favorite movie or series in bed. You can stream it on a secondary, larger screen with AppleTV or connect the device with an HDMI cable. Or use the iPad to read your favorite book or catch up on those friend group chats and emails. Experts recommend avoiding looking at a screen for at least 20 minutes before going to sleep to allow your body and mind to relax. You can use the iPad Air's Downtime function to switch it off automatically. Activate by going to Settings > Screen Time, then turn on Screen Time if you haven't already. Tap Downtime, then turn on Downtime. Select Every Day or Customize Days, then set the start and end times.

 4. Bathroom

Even though not many will admit it, the iPad does have a presence in the bathroom. In fact, experts do not recommend using it while sitting on the toilet for safety and hygienic reasons. Studies show that quite a high rate of iPads break by falling in the bowl. However, set up the iPad to listen to your favorite podcast while getting ready. Or watch a movie while having a bath. Or play relaxing, meditative music as you go through your self-care night routine. Follow a tutorial step-by-step as you try out a new makeup look before going out.

What To Look for in an iPad Case?

Investing in an iPad case is always a good idea – even if the use is limited to the home. A high-quality iPad case will protect your device and prevent any damage caused by accidents, drops, or falls. It is also cost-effective in the long run, saving you on repairs. A kickstand case is one of the most useful accessories you can invest in for your iPad Pro. You can set it up anywhere: on the kitchen counter, desk, floor, or bedside table. The kickstand cases protect your device while making you comfortable. Some iPad cases have a hidden kickstand leg at the back. You only need to pull it out to prop the case up. Others flip back into a magnetic trifold, giving you three positions. Or you can find covers like the Zugu iPad 10.2 case gives you eight adjustable angles. A strong magnet holds each angle in place, keeping your iPad perfectly in place.

There is no place like home, and you should be able to use your iPad without worrying about its safety. Don’t let a slip or fall damage your iPad when a high-quality iPad 10.2 case can do the trick.
