How do you use your iPad?

I always find it interesting the different ways in which people use their devices, especially when it comes to iPads. When the iPad was announced there was plenty of folks declaring it a flop even before it hit shelves because of their lack of understanding where, exactly the product fit in and how it would be used by those interested in even picking one up.

Is iOS 7.1 worth giving up your jailbreak for?

iOS 7.1 brings a few new features, some great accessibility updates, and some much needed bug fixes to the iPhone and iPad. If you want it, however, you're going to have to give up your jailbreak to get it. That's because, unlike iOS 7.0.x, iOS 7.1 has been jailbroken yet and, as is increasingly the case, there's no word yet on when or how long it'll be until iOS 7.1 is jailbroken. So, is iOS 7.1 enough of an improvement that you'd be willing to give up your tweaks, customizations, and jailbreak apps?

iOS 7.1: What did it fix for you and what's still broken?

iOS 7.1 is live for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, and with it a whole bevy of fixes and additions. Since Apple makes updates so easy, and adoption rates are so high, that means many of you have likely taken the plunge already. It also means you've likely scoured through every change to find what's really been fixed and what still remains broken. There's no changelog or quality assurance in the world that can match millions of people hitting a new piece of software. And that's just what the iMore Forums are doing right now!

How do you protect your iPhones and iPads?

Almost everyone has been in this situation at one point or another. You pick up a new iPhone 5s or iPad Air, maybe a iPhone 5c or Retina iPad mini, you use it for a while, and then it starts to show signs of wear and tear. Maybe you banged it against the wall and got a little ding on it, maybe it was knocked out of your hand by a clumsy friend and fell to the floor. Whatever happened, you know the feeling of that first blemish — it sucks.

Is Chromecast worth $35 to iPhone and iPad users?

When Google unveiled their $35 Chromecast I was genuinely interested. It was cheap and offered a lot of really cool app integration such as streaming from Songza, VEVO, Netflix, Plex and more. I ended up picking a Chromecast up, setting it up in my bedroom and... barely ever using it. Why? Because I'm invested into the Apple ecosystem and they have me hooked with the Apple TV. So, Chromecast was essentially a waste of $35. But what about folks not already invested in the Apple TV? Is the Chromecast a better, cheaper option for them?
