iPad is based on a touch screen technology. That means our fingers slap, slap, slap her smooth face. If we want to do that on normal glass, it will end up being sticky, stained, and dirty on our hands. The surface of the iPad has a special coating that repels fingerprints. But this also has its limits. If your iPad gets dirty, say ice cream or chocolate, you should clean it with a soft, lint-free cloth, like the one you use to clean your glasses. Under no circumstances should you use products like Windex, Formula 409, or anything that is based on alcohol, ammonia, or cleaning pads. These types of cleaning products will compromise the coating and make it very difficult to use.
Take a lint-free cloth moistened with water and slowly wipe the front and sides of the iPad. Make sure the device is not connected to a dock or USB and be careful not to let water fall into openings such as the dock connector or the headphone jack. After finishing cleaning with the cloth dampened in water, take the same type of cloth, but this time make sure it is dry.
The screen is scratch resistant, but if you accidentally drop it on a solid surface such as concrete, it may crack. If this happens and the screen or a chip is damaged, do not use the iPad or try to remove the broken glass. It is recommended to go to the nearest authorized Apple service for repairs.
There is another solution for both situations: keep the iPad clean and protected in case it is dropped or scratched. Accessory dealers come with a ton of solutions ranging from all kinds of majestic leather portfolio models to a variety of colored rubber covers that are meant to protect your iPad from anything that might damage it (including the situation in the one that keeps your iPad in a strap between car keys, glasses or credit cards).
