A brand new iPad comprises of the following accessories, a dock connector to USB Cable and 10W USB power adapter inside the box. To maximize performance and enjoyment of your device, there are a few essential iPad accessories that tablet users need to improve its functionality. An iPad will not feel complete without having these accessories listed below.
iPad Screen Protector
This thin plastic film is necessary to protect the iPad screen from any scratches and maintain it clean all the time. Unfortunately, Apple has removed the screen protector in their list of products and so users can only buy one from other companies.
After placing a screen guard, the second must-have accessory is the case, to further protect the device from scratch and shocks. Since this accessory will be used at all times, buy one that is highly versatile and durable. The case must have cushioned interior and strong reinforced panels. The ‘official’ Apple iPad case features a stand that can support the device in a position for viewing videos and for using the onscreen keyboard for a comfortable typing angle.
iPad Keyboard Dock
This is ideal if you often use the iPad for typing purposes. Practically a combination of mini keyboard and charging dock, this accessory comes with distinct keys to set off special features. It has a connector port that allows users to connect to a power source using a USB power adapter and an audio line out port.
Besides supporting other accessories like a camera connection kit, this accessory enables users to easily use the dock connection port for purposes like syncing or charging. Users can even connect it to a powered speaker via an audio cable to transform it into a mini boom box.
iPad Camera Connection Kit
This accessory lets users export and import digital images and videos from a digital camera. Users need to use a USB cable from the camera. Another way is by transferring the files from a memory card, and because the iPad supports JPEG and RAW digital image formats, transfer of photos from the camera to the device is no longer a hassle.
