Apple has earned the reputation as being one of the most innovative companies in the world, setting new industry trends and opening up new markets. But it wasn’t always like this. When the iPad was initially launched, it was naturally met with criticism.
Wired.com called the device “little more than a giant iPhone” and TechRepublic.com claimed “the iPad will fail to win significant market share.” Almost three years later and over 100 million units sold since its introduction, these critics have been proven wrong.
Along with the iPhone, Apple has forever changed how we interact with technology. And there is no shortage of rumors about new developments in wearable gadgets which will have to wait. Until then the following are must-have accessories you can buy today to enhance the capabilities of your iPad.
The Apple TV only costs $99 and offers wireless connectivity with the iPad. You can be able to stream the content on your iPad including movies, shows and even games directly to your television screen. This is the perfect accessory for the living room.
Wacom Bamboo stylus
The use of a stylus is perfect for graphic designers, students and even small business owners. The Wacom Bamboo stylus offers a comfortable feel and is well worth the investment, allowing accurate annotations and interactivity.
The iPad should have a good case to protect it against damage and scratches. Apple offers its own line of smart covers but their only drawback is they only keep the front protected, leaving the back side vulnerable. The best iPad 2 cases are designed to offer complete protection and dual functionality.
Logitech tablet keyboard
Writing on the iPad is a bit of a nuance. Those wanting to be able to do actual writing work on their devices will benefit from having a separate keyboard built specifically for this purpose. The Logitech tablet keyboard makes a perfect addition for travelers frequently on the go.
The iPad comes with cellular connectivity at an extra cost. However, even if you opted for the wi-fi only model you can still get connection across the nation with wireless hotspot devices such as the Spring Overdrive. These devices are portable meaning you have connection wherever you go.
There are plenty of other accessories but these are some of the best available. The App Store is also filled with apps that can transform your device into a productivity or entertainment powerhouse.
