    My mother always yelling me saying playing games with my iPad will damage it eventually because we are using the touch screen so much. I do not think it's correct. But I like to know if any truth behind this statement. If it is a dumb question I'm sorry. But can someone explain it to me?

    If tapping and swiping it with my Apple Pencil for as long as 8 hours in a stretch isn’t hurting it, I don’t see how a game will....Unless you rage quit:) .

    Mothers often warn their children of dire consequences if they do such and such!:)
    Seriously, though, provided you keep the screen clean and do not rub pieces of grit into it, the oleophobic screen should last a very long time.

    I have an iPad 4 that I've been using almost every day for 7 years and it still works perfectly.
