When the iPhone is too small and the iPad is too big, reach for the iPad Mini. It's just the right size for browsing the web, responding to emails, and stashing in your purse or backpack for a lightweight mobile device.
The first order of business when you get your new iPad Mini is to configure the settings and install your favorite apps. After that, it's time to accessorize. Here are some of our favorite accessories to get you started.
Your iPad Mini is in pristine shape when you unbox it. How do you keep it that way? By adding the protection of a screen protector and a case for the iPad Mini. The Zagg InvisibleSHIELD screen protector keeps your device clean and new. It's made from the same material used by the military to protect high-speed helicopter blades from dust, dirt, and debris.
Need to remove it? Not a problem. The Zagg screen protector peels off without leaving any sticky residue behind.
Case for iPad Mini
The second way to keep your device looking like new is to protect it with an iPad Mini case. Besides protecting your mobile device from scratches and wear, it also provides drop protection for moments when you get a little clumsy.
Using a protective case means that you don't have to be paranoid about carrying your iPad Mini in a purse or backpack. You don't have to worry about your dog scratching the case or your cat knocking it off the coffee table. The peace of mind an iPad Mini case brings is more than worth a few extra bucks.
iPad Mini Stand
Wish you could prop up your device for easier viewing? With an iPad Mini stand, you can. In fact, the Pad & Quill case for iPad Mini comes with a built-in stand that props your device at multiple angles.
If you want to buy a separate stand, however, you can have your choice of freestanding and portable stands. Most universal stands will also fit the iPad Mini.
Using the on-screen keyboard takes up screen space and makes it harder to type as fast as you would on an external keyboard. Make your life easier with an external keyboard that lets you preserve screen space, type faster, and type without scrunching your fingers together on a narrow on-screen keypad.
Speakers & Headphones
Although the iPad Mini comes with built-in speakers, you'll get better sound with external speakers or a set of high-quality headphones. For external speakers, we like the JBL SoundFly BT and the Jawbone Jambox recommended by Cult of Mac. For earbuds, our two favorites are the Thinksound In-Ear Monitor MS01 and the Earjax Moxy Earbuds. Both ship free with purchase of any other PQ case or accessory.
The nice thing about buying speakers or earbuds is that they'll work with almost any other Apple device you have on hand. If you own more than one Apple device, that'll save you money in the long run.
