In Short

There's no time like summer to really soak up the sun and cool off at the beach, lake, or poolside. You might also be enjoying your time outdoors at your favorite campground with friends and family. Without a doubt, your iPhone or iPad is coming with you no matter where you end up this summer. That means keeping your devices safe from water intrusion, sand, sweat, and lotion-soaked hands while you enjoy all the elements.
