Even though iPad sales have been in the decline recently, surely, when the iPad Pro finally comes out people are going to buy the new version in droves.

iPad Air and iPad Mini



But a lot of users, like us for example, wont find the need to upgrade to a newer iPad every year, we still have our trusty iPad retina for everyday use, and my old trusty first gen iPad still works. And it’s still perfectly useful for YouTube, web browsing, email, games, Facebook and other stuff, not bad for a 5 year old device. Our only issue with the first gen iPad is that it’s not compatible anymore with newer and more power hungry apps, but that’s a given, and makes sense. For whatever it was used back 5 years ago, it’s still perfectly useful for those things now. And the main reason it’s still in tip top shape is we used a good case for the iPad.


Protecting your iPad, or any device for that matter (or anything, really), will determine the longevity of the device. And for the iPad, a good case can help maintain your iPad looking nice and new. Using a case for your iPad can help maintain the smoothness, protect it from scratches, dents, and even from breaking when dropped from a certain height. And that’s why my first generation iPad still looks like brand new after 5 years of everyday usage.

And for something that can help protect your expensive device for years on end, these iPad cases are relatively cheap. Gearbest.com has a foldable stand cover case on sale right now for only $8.88, a 32% off sale from its regular price of $13.08. That’s a rather cheap price to pay for protecting your $500-700 device, ensuring its longevity.

Many people will argue that putting a case on your device will undermine the work of the designers of the device since the bulk of the device will be hidden thanks to the case, but it still makes complete perfect sense to protect your investment from potential damage from everyday usage.
