5 Ways to Childproof Your iPad

IPADS HAVE BECOME INCREASINGLY POPULAR AMONG KIDS OF ALL AGES, FROM TODDLERS TO TEENAGERS. WITH THE DEVICE’S PORTABILITY, EASY-TO-USE INTERFACE, AND ENDLESS APP OPTIONS AND GAMES, IT’S NO SURPRISE THAT PARENTS ARE CONSIDERING BUYING ONE FOR THEIR CHILDREN. HOWEVER, AS MUCH AS THE IPAD CAN BE AN EDUCATIONAL AND ENTERTAINING TOOL FOR KIDS, IT CAN ALSO POSE SOME DANGERS IF NOT CHILDPROOFED CORRECTLY. IN THIS BLOG, WE’LL SHARE FIVE WAYS TO MAKE YOUR IPAD SAFE AND FUNCTIONAL FOR YOUR LITTLE ONES.

1. Invest in a Hardy Casing

Investing in a sturdy casing is the first step in protecting your child’s iPad from drops, spills, and other accidents. And when choosing a casing, note that a good casing should not only be durable but also lightweight and comfortable to hold.

However, we at LYK Repair understand that sometimes even a good iPad casing might not suffice in protecting the gadget from all the hard hits and accidental spills. This is why we provide an extensive selection of iPad repair services, including iPad water damage repairs. And in case of any other accidents, we also offer the necessary services to fix iPad screens at a reasonable cost.

2. Apply a Screen Protector

The benefits of a screen protector in preventing scratches, cracks, and other damage to the iPad screen cannot be overstated. Screen protectors are affordable and easy to apply, making them an essential component in childproofing an iPad.

But just like the casing, even the most suitable and well-fitted screen protector for your iPad cannot protect it from all the mishaps. So, what can you do when your kid’s iPad screen breaks or cracks after a hard fall? Look no further than LYK Repair because we also provide iPad, iPad Pro, and iPad Mini screen repair services to get your tablet looking new again! And by fixing the broken screen with us, you can rest assured that sharp glass shards will never prick your kid’s little fingers.

3. Enable Parental Controls

Parental controls are a must-have for any parent who wants to ensure their child’s safety while using an iPad. Functions such as content restrictions, screen time limits, and other features can be used to block inappropriate content and limit access to certain apps or games. This can be done by accessing your iOS devices that come readily built-in with parental controls. Simply enable them by going to Settings > Screen Time > Content & Privacy Restrictions and then adjust the Allowed Apps and Content Restrictions.

4. Disable In-App Purchases

In-app purchases can be tempting for kids, but they can also lead to a high bill for parents. To prevent this from happening, disable in-app purchases on your child’s iPad. This can be done by going to Settings > Screen Time > Content & Privacy Restrictions > iTunes & App Store Purchases > In-app Purchases, and selecting “Don’t Allow”. Doing so can prevent unwanted bills and give you peace of mind.

5. Keep the iPad Clean

Keeping your child’s iPad clean is essential in preventing the spread of germs and bacteria. While it’s advisable to wipe the device to keep it looking shiny and new, do not use any fabric or cleaning solution to wipe it down. Instead, clean the tablet with a microfibre cloth and a cleaning solution specifically designed for your iPad. This way, you can not only prolong its lifespan but also mitigate the risk of the iPad suddenly failing on you.

Keep Your iPad Safe and Functional with LYK Repair

Childproofing an iPad is crucial in ensuring your child’s safety while using the device. And as covered above, investing in a sturdy casing, applying a screen protector, enabling parental controls, disabling in-app purchases, and keeping the iPad clean are all steps that you can take to childproof the device.

However, it is inevitable for any electronic device to slow down or show signs of wear and tear over time. In such instances, fret not! Never stress over having to buy a brand new device the moment your iPad screen cracks or the battery starts to slow.
