Can you spot a fraudulent email?

You may occasionally receive emails pretending to be from companies such as Amazon, eBay, PayPal or Apple. Do you know how to identify one which is clearly NOT genuine?

Thinking of buying a new iPad?

iPad comparison

This page on Apple’s website at allows you to compare all features such as:-

  • Finish
  • Capacity*
  • Price (RRP)
  • Display
  • Dimensions
  • Weight
  • Chipset
  • TouchID (where available)
  • Camera
  • Video recording
  • Mobile and wireless
  • SIM card
  • Connector
  • Battery life
  • Sensors

* iPad memory cannot be (easily) expanded, so be sure the model you buy has enough for the programs and files you’ll want it to store. (You can buy a plug in SD card reader, but this isn’t convenient).

When buying, be sure to budget for a protective case, ideally one which also acts as a stand allowing you to use it handsfree (great if you plan to use it for watching movies or even reading a book!)
