Dear Computer Lady,
Is it possible to replace the battery on my iPad? I can’t find a way to open it to access the battery.
If I can’t replace the battery, how do I make sure it lasts as long as possible?
Thank you for your help, Irene
You can’t replace the battery on your iPad.
Instead, here are some tips to extend the life of your iPad’s battery.
Keep your iPad at a moderate temperature. Don’t expose it to extreme hot or cold.
Use your iPad often, and recharge it at least once a month.
Don’t keep your iPad in a case that traps the heat. If you have such a case, take it out while you are charging the device.
In addition, you can change some of your settings to conserve battery power. Set your screen to dim when you don’t need it fully bright, turn off wi-fi and location services when not needed.
It’s Your Turn: What do you think?
