While your iPad is a pretty amazing device on its own, there are a number of ways that you can accessorize it that will add to both your enjoyment of your tablet, as well as improved functionality. From its inception, the iPad has gone from being a simple content consumption device into something much more, with business applications and creation programs greatly enhancing everything that it can do.
Many of you use your iPad to view movies and web content. While using headphones works perfectly well when you are privately viewing your material, they fall far short of being effective when you want to share what you’re watching with others. The iPad has a built-in speaker, but the speaker is not exactly capable of delivering the deep sounds that an external speaker can provide. These speakers come in a variety of different styles, ranging from classic “boom box” speakers to portable (and foldable) speakers.
When you want to accessorize your iPad, one of the first things that you’ll probably want to look at is protecting the screen. Granted, the good people at Apple have done a very impressive job of making a screen that is quite strong and sturdy, but it is not impervious to scratching. Luckily, adding an inexpensive screen protector will keep your iPad screen looking as awesome years from now as it was from the first day you owned it.
As mentioned earlier, the iPad works with headphones, but in many cases, iPad users want to go with third-party headphones that might provide a bit more bass and treble for those audiophiles out there who truly want to experience their music to the fullest extent possible. Every person has a different preference when it comes to headphones, with some preferring the “earbuds,” while others might like the “over the ear” studio headphones that often provide deeper, richer sound. Then again, for the frequent traveler, there are a number of very efficient “noise canceling” earphones that will allow you to enjoy your iPad without having to endure outside distractions. If you hate the idea of having wires dangling around your neck, there are even wireless headphones that have radio transmitters capable of sending a signal up to 100 feet, allowing you to move virtually anywhere around your house without having to drop your iPad with you.
As mentioned earlier, the iPad has rapidly become a content creation device, meaning that you can use it for much more than just viewing videos and reading your email. When you want to accessorize your iPad into a more productive tool, one of the most useful items you can use is an external keyboard. There are a number of keyboards available for your iPad, allowing you to greatly increase your typing speed and accuracy.
No matter what you’re using your iPad to do, the odds are that there are accessories available that allow you to do much more than you thought possible.
