If you recently dropped a nice penny on one of the the new iPad Pro, we recommend that you protect your investment with a new case. We have put together a list of the best cases currently available to protect your new tablet from falls and scratches. These six options vary by price points and protection levels, but they are all good choices. Make sure your new piece of technology has the protection it deserves!
Harbor London iPad Pro Folio
Not everyone needs a keyboard or pop-out stand for their storage. Some are looking for an elegant way to store and protect their iPad Pro, either alone or in a larger case. This Harbor London case was designed for this purpose, featuring a Spanish-made design with tanned cowhide leather. The case includes two pockets to store other consumables (paper and pen, wallets, etc.), with a zipper that does not guarantee tearing or damage. It’s also spacious enough to hold an iPad Pro with a magic keyboard attached so you don’t have to worry about separate peripherals. The downside is that this classy case has a high cost.
OtterBox Symmetry 360 Series
OtterBox has long established a high standard among protective cases for smart devices from all major smartphone manufacturers. The OtterBox Symmetry 360 series for the 11-inch iPad Pro is another excellent case from a long line of quality offers from the Colorado company. The Symmetry 360 series offers protection around the corners and edges of the iPad Pro and the clear plastic case showcases the iPad’s design by protecting its surfaces from scratches and scrapes.
Like many iPad cases, Symmetry 360 has a folio that can be folded to provide support for the tablet if you want to place it upright. It also provides space for the Apple Pencil and a protective flap to cover it once stored. A magnetic flap closes the case when the iPad is not in use. While this particular case may dampen the click of the iPad’s peripheral buttons, the reduced tactile feedback deserves the protection offered by the case.
Arrived directly from Apple, OtterBox Symmetry 360 is a worthwhile investment in your $ 800 (minimum) device.
Metropolis Folio urban armor sheet
The Urban Armor Gear folio is specifically designed for users who carry their iPads with them during the day, pulling them in and out of bags constantly or using them while they are active. It is made of a grabable material that can be folded into an adjustable stand, but also includes reinforced edges and a structure that meets military drop-test standards – making it more likely that your iPad can survive a sudden spill on the sidewalk.
As our first choice, this UAG case also has a built-in Apple Pencil holder which can allow the Pencil to charge while on the move. However, note that this durable case isn’t compatible with some of our other choices, like the Smart Keyboard Folio we’re about to mention. It is one or a situation.
Apple smart keyboard folio
Apple Smart Keyboard Folio is the flagship case for iPad Pro. It offers seamless performance and takes your tablet email game to a whole new level. Apple’s intention with the iPad Pro seems to have bridged part of the gap between iPad and MacBook. With Pro, they offered consumers just a little more professional usability and Smart Keyboard Folio takes you most of the way.
The folio part of this accessory offers slight protection when closed and prevents the front and back of the iPad from being scratched during use or on surfaces. The keyboard is powered by the iPad itself, so no additional cables or charging are needed. Its low weight allows you to easily carry this accessory with you while on the move and its slim profile does not add excessive bulk to your iPad Pro.
This smart keyboard is the most expensive on the list, but its seamless consistency with the iPad Pro makes it an attractive addition to your Apple tablet. With the new MacBook Air Starting at $ 999, this is an inexpensive way to get an Apple-powered tablet and laptop in one.
Logitech Slim Folio Pro
If you like having a smart keyboard folio, but you’re not the biggest fan of Apple’s internal option, then check out Logitech Slim Folio Pro. That doesn’t mean these two offerings are identical, because they aren’t – in fact, we believe that Logitech Slim Folio Pro offers significantly greater protection than the Apple alternative thanks to the rubber edges that cover the corners and the two long sides of the iPad Pro. Although this makes the case a little more bulky, it might be worth it if you are writing with your iPad Pro while on the move and worrying about damaging your tablet.
Logitech promotes a proprietary scissor mechanism design for its keyboard, which is your own alley if you love the keys with good feedback. The case pairs with Bluetooth connectivity and the keyboard design offers a row of iOS-compatible shortcuts to make working or typing on your iPad a little easier to use. Backlight keys are also a useful addition that isn’t always available on such thin keyboards, but is ideal for low-light working conditions. Overall, protection, design and price make this Logitech keyboard folio a solid choice. The 2020 version of this case also offers the possibility to store and load the Apple Pencil.
Apple Smart Folio
An old man but a good one. The Apple Smart Folio for iPad Pro is a $ 79 option for a home case. The OG smart folio has its main purpose, which is to prevent scratches on the screen or body of your new iPad Pro. It is a clean way to cover the iPad when not in use and to prevent it from being scratched when placing the keys on it. of it on the coffee table, but apart from that it offers very little protection.
Regardless, it fits perfectly into the account of an iPad that stays at home or in the office and is available in a range of colors. Unlike the smart folios of yesteryear, the current offering has a back cover to make sure you protect the iPad’s aluminum panel body. This option is available directly from the source or in your local Apple store.
