Avoid Dropping It

Preventing your tablet from dropping is an obvious way to keep it safe, yet falls tend to be the number one cause of cracked screens. Be sure to buy a case and screen protector to provide an extra layer of defense against damage. It’s also important to take caution when carrying your tablet so that it doesn’t slip out of your hands.

Stay Away from Heat and Cold

It’s best to store your tablet in temperatures between 65°F (18°C) and 85°F (29.4°C). If the device gets too hot or cold, it could cause the screen to become more brittle and likely to crack. Be aware of any temperature changes when you take your tablet with you and try to store it in a consistent environment.

Don’t Place Heavy Objects on Top of It

If you place heavy objects on top of your tablet, even if it’s on a flat surface, it could cause the screen to crack. We recommend that you never place any items on top of your tablet, even a magazine or book.

Be Careful When Cleaning It

When cleaning your tablet, use only a soft cloth that is slightly dampened with plain water and dry it off immediately afterward. Avoid chemical cleaners or compressed air because these can damage the device’s components.
