8 Reasons to Protect Your iPad Mini

Your iPad mini is a versatile device that allows you to perform a number of functions on the go. But how do you keep it protected from the various threats to its safety or utility?

In this post, we’ll look at eight reasons to protect your iPad mini with a carrying case.

Keep a Clear Screen

Your screen may accumulate a number of fingerprints through regular wear and tear. A case can keep your screen in pristine condition without any unsightly smudges, obscuring the presentation of your screen. It will lessen the number of times you need to clean your screen.

Make Your iPad Mini Easier to Carry

Even though iPad minis are compact and easy to carry, it can become a chore lugging it around everywhere if you don’t have a place to stash it. Having a protective case for it – particularly one with some kind of shoulder strap or holster – allows you to sling it over your shoulder and not give it a second thought.


An ABC News investigation found that computer keyboards are typically dirtier than any toilet. While an iPad mini isn’t technically a computer keyboard, it’s used in a similar fashion. One could argue that the potential for germs and bacteria impacting an iPad mini are just as high.

A case will help cut the number of bacteria and germs your iPad mini is exposed to. Whether you use it without washing your hands or let others use it, you’ll be able to significantly cut down on the potential exposure to infections.

Prevent Identity Theft

Let’s say you leave your tablet open at a coffee shop or other public place. Let’s also assume you have some sort of program open that contains personally identifiable information of a sensitive nature. It could be your social security number or your bank account information. If left unexposed, your tablet could fall into the hands of malicious actors looking to steal your identity for any number of nefarious reasons.

A case allows you to hide your iPad mini, protecting any personally identifiable info stored on it.

Don’t Let It Get Smashed

We all drop our devices. Whether it’s our laptops, smartphones, or tablets, everyone makes the mistake of having it fall out of their hands from time to time. With an iPad mini carrying case, you don’t have to worry about your iPad mini smashing once it hits or gets knocked to the ground. You lessen the likelihood of an impact damaging your device.

Protect Your Data

Much of the data on your iPad is most likely precious, like pictures and videos. If you were to leave it in an area where someone you don’t know could grab it, they could access your data. You could also leave it somewhere where someone you know or trust could access the iPad and accidentally delete a great deal of your data.

With a case, you can store your tablet and not worry about any unintentional (or intentional) deletions. Your iPad – and your data – will be secure.

Lighten Your Travel Load

When traveling with your devices, you expose it to the rough and tumble conditions of travel. Carting it through an airport, taking it through TSA, and holding it in a taxi exposes it to both the elements and a number of risks that may cause harmful impact or damage.

An iPad mini carrying case is a convenient, dedicated way to store it as you travel. You don’t have to spend time worrying about its safety.

Child Proof It

As much as we love our toddlers and little ones, they can wreak havoc around our valuables and electronic devices. You may give them your tablets as a distraction. Or maybe they don’t have regular access to it, but always seem to find it as it lies around your house. While your kids may be small, they are mighty, and they have the potential to cause untold damage to your iPad mini.

Having a dedicated container for your iPad mini keeps it shielded from your children. It allows you to control when and where they have access to it so you can monitor them while they do.
