    Default risky ipad use

    I cant watch - my gf is reading her ipad in the bath

    Its her ipad, so if she is confident of not dropping it...

    I wonder what the Apple policy on drowned ipads is

    Well you know, if it's a bubble bath... with the right lighting... I'm sure you could have the pic submitted here from your iPhone before she's had time to grab a towel and chase you...

    trust me - i would have done the same

    the problem is she might drop it whilst attempting to get out of the bath, hunt me down through the house and kill me... and then make me pay for the drowned ipad because it was clearly my fault.

    discretion is often the better part of valour.

    The policy is buy a new iPad.

    an iPad that has failed due to damage is eligible for Out-of-Warranty service. However,*certain damage is ineligible for OOW service, including*liquid damage, catastrophic damage, such as the device separating into multiple pieces,*and inoperability caused by unauthorized modifications.

    I would be more worried about what the steam from the bath will do to the internals of the ipad! The dock connector and speakers are at the bottom there, just the right place to suck up some steam and start the dreaded water damage.

    Mmm, very good point... steam would seep in anywhere...

    It's obviously a generalisation, but… in my experience many women have little respect for tech gadgets. I have female friends who let their babies chew on their iPhones. Another significant female in my life fairly chucks her MacBook on the sofa when she's done with it, refuses to attach the power cord with the correct orientation (so that the cable is already fractured internally), always lets something catch in the closed lid.

    Or am I just too picky.

    The power cord has a correct orientation? :P

    Apart from that, yes, you should see my friend's iPhone 3G she's ruined!

    In another incident, a child she was babysitting vomited on her boyfriend's iPad! :o

    I too use my iPad in the bath! As I'm male, overweight and hairy, I'll spare you the pics proving the situation. I have also used my Macbook and an iPhone in that particular spot too. In fact all I want to do now is have a nice warm bath and go to bed. Hmm.

    I use it with a Padacs leather case and just prop it up to sit on my chest or occasionally let it sit on the side of the bath. I don't really notice the steam off the bath but maybe I'm just blind. Or dumb. Is there anything in the warranty that stipulates you can't use the iPad in a steamy environment?
    Moo.

    That's the problem with water vapour, it's generally invisible to the naked eye. If you've got a bathtub of hot water it's there.

    Yup, Environmental conditions in the specs state a maximum relative humidity of 95%. You'll easily exceed that sitting in the bath, when the water condenses internally it'll trigger the liquid sensors.

    Be a shit to live in a climate that regularly reaches 100% humidity... oh, sorry to everyone still living in Darwin.
