We often remember that the benefit of a metal housing (or of crystal, although to a lesser extent) it is not only aesthetic, but it helps us prolong the life of our devices, since it dissipates heat better, which affects the conservation of internal components.

We have already commented on occasion that We do not earn anything by closing each app that we are using, rather vice versa, because RAM is to be used.

"Clean" your tablet also inside
A bit as an extension of what we just said, we always like to try new apps and games, but it is worth checking out from time to time and getting rid of everything we have stopped using for some time.

Keep it updated
We always insist that the importance of having our tablet updated goes beyond receiving new functions, although this is something that is always appreciated, because with them always come improvements in performance and autonomy. Very occasionally we can find, especially with the iPad that usually have longer periods of support, in which a new version is too much for them, but it is not usual. It is true that here we are in the hands of the manufacturer, but you only have a certain point, and for this you have to go to the next point.
