So, you’ve just got a brand new iPad, huh? What’s the first thing you want to do, apart from play Flappy Bird? Customise it, of course! But where do you start? That’s where we come in. We’ve got plenty of ways and tips you can customise, or ‘pimp out’ your iPad, just read our helpful guide!
This is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to customise your iPad. Decals are cool little stickers you can stick on your iPad. Just take a look on Etsy to see what’s available. Why not give the Apple logo a moustache? Or turn it into a carton of apple juice? You could even have a family of monsters on the back of your device! There are some very creative decals to choose from.
Japanese Masking Tape
Japanese masking tape, otherwise known as washi, can be used on all of your devices to create a funky and unique pattern. You can make so many different patterns, from polka dots to four leafed clovers. It’s so easy to remove too, so you don’t have to worry about ruining your device.
Another very simple way to customise your iPad is with a case. You could choose a sleek leather case, a keyboard cover from the Apple store to turn your device into a great portable computer, or even a designer clutch bag for the fashionistas out there! The choices are endless; you could even buy a plain case and decorate it yourself with gems and 3D decorations.
Gold Plating and Engraving
If you’ve got the budget for it, you could get your iPad a more luxurious look by having it gold plated! If gold plating isn’t your thing, you could get it engraved. Have your name etched on it to make sure it stays in your possession forever. You can get both services together from a reputable company like this, which saves you the time and hassle.
Once you’ve sorted out the exterior appearance of your iPad, you can then concentrate on the interior. Think of your favourite Tv show, film, band, or celebrity…why not make them your home screen? You could even choose an inspiring piece of artwork or a beautiful location.
Register With Apple’s Game Centre
By registering with Apple’s game centre, you can download games to your heart’s content and have loads of fun with your new iPad.
Organise Your Apps
There’s an app for literally everything, so things can look a little messy after you’ve had your way with the App store. Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, MyFitnessPal…you can get an app for everything, from playing games to sharing selfies! Organise your apps to make your iPad look clean and tidy. You’ll then be able to access exactly what you need in record time.
There are many more things you can do to customise and ‘pimp’ your iPad, like making your battery last longer by changing the settings and turning on multitasking gestures. You could even set up home sharing to share music and films from your computer to your iPad, which is a great way to save storage space on your device. Have fun pimping your iPad!
