How I fixed the iPad Case and Dock compatibility issue with scissors
It seems while Apple’s best designers were designing the iPad, their not-as-good ones were designing the iPad’s case.
Problem: When the iPad is in its protective case, it doesn’t dock properly. And the case fits your iPad super tightly, so there’s no way that you will remove it every time you need to charge it.
Solution: take your scissors and cut off a 73mm x 30mm rectangle off your case. The 73mm should be centred with the dock connector. The 30mm is measured from the the edge. On the bottom part, just cut following the existing opening as straight as you can.
Think three times, measure twice and cut once. Don’t do it unless you’re 100% confident that you can succeed. I’m not responsible if you accidentally or intentionally damage your phone, your case, your scissors, your dock, your hands, etc. Obviously, you can’t bring the case back for a refund once you do that!
