Does the impact-resistant and waterproof case deliver as promised?
Apple's iPad line is strong, but a pane of glass and a thin aluminum shell can only be so durable. One accident, and a $329 or more investment is destined for the repair shop. A pocket industry of protective cases ranging from just scratch resistance to total impact protection has sprung up around the near-ubiquitous tablet, with the LifeProof Nuud case for the iPad Mini being one of the more recent additions to the market. The case promises to protect the iPad Mini from liquid submersions up to 6.6 feet, with surviving drops from up to four feet. Additionally, LifeProof states that the case is sealed against dirt, dust, snow, and ice. How resistant is it, really? We found out, in our review.
