I have done a search on this topic, and I keep getting conflicting results.

I am thinking about purchasing this backpack. It has two magnets, one on each of the larger compartments. Will using this pack damage my ipad?

If it is not too much trouble, can someone give me a brief explanation of why or why not? If it makes a difference, I keep my iPad in an otterbox defender all the time, but I don't have the part attached that covers the dock access.

Thank you so much for your help

Wendy

ahhh...my sisters sony laptop's screen got completely ruined by a latch magnet on her case! The whole center left side of the screen was permanently distorted. Similar to how old crt monitors would get distorted by pc speakers, and you could degauss from the monitor menu it to fix it. No screen calibration/syncing ever fixed it the laptop's screen. Keep in mind that it was in the case while we were on vacation, with the screen closed, for about exactly one week.
Simple fix/cure...don't by a case with magnets!
