    Hi guys,

    Just wondering if 'the new iPad' has any liquid damage indicators? I've heard that they can trigger in humid conditions, so wondering if I should pay extra for AppleCare+ just in case when I get mine as I understand that this covers you for liquid damage too.

    Many thanks

    Unlike overheating, I don't believe there is an automatic cut-off of the iPad where you use it in excess humidity. (Eg in the tropics).
    But high humidity can cause condensation in your machine if say you move into a colder room and could possibly affect conductivity and electrical resistance resulting in possible short circuiting.

    I wouldn't worry too much about it unless you have such extreme climate conditions. Of course if you often use your iPad sitting on the edge of a pool I would definitely consider the extra warranty (smile)
