The 12.9-inch iPad Pro isn’t just a very large (and very impressive) tablet. It’s also an expensive one, so you’ll want to protect it with a quality case. Apple does offer their own silicone case and external keyboard, but there are plenty of other options beyond that if you know where to look. The best iPad Pro cases offer unique functionality and style, allowing you to find the perfect fit for your tablet and needs.
If you want to turn your iPad into a laptop, the Logitech Slim Folio Pro is the perfect combination of protection and functionality. Thanks to a fully backlit keyboard — complete with a dedicated row of iOS function keys — you can easily switch back and forth between using your iPad Pro for entertainment and admin chores. The magnetic latch keeps your iPad secure from bumps, scratches, and spills. There’s even a place to store your Apple Pencil right inside the case.
The IVSO Keyboard Case sports familiar features — like a polyurethane faux leather cover and built-in kickstand — but it packs an extra punch. When you want to use the detachable Bluetooth keyboard, it sits comfortably in the case. If you don’t need the keyboard but still want the protection, simply remove it from the case and you’re on your way. The IVSO Keyboard Case comes in just two different colors (black and rosegold), but if you don’t mind spend a few more bucks, you can upgrade to a backlit keyboard.
If you need heavy-duty protection but still want access to ports and buttons, this is your iPad Pro case. The Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro Series Case is made of flexible TPU and hard polycarbonate for hardcore shock absorption. There are cutouts for all ports, and the raised edges in front of the screen should help prevent it from shattering and scratching. And just in case (heyo) that’s not enough, the built-in screen protector adds another layer of peace to your mind. Literally.
The Targus VersaVu Signature Series takes a military grade polycarbonate case and wraps it in a comfy cover for extra security. The padding unfolds into a kickstand that lets you hold up your iPad both vertically or horizontally. When you’re on the go, it all folds up easy peasy. As a bonus, the case’s tray design enhances the iPad Pro’s speaker performance, too.
Apple’s hardware is meant to be beautiful, and getting this clear case will let you show off your new iPad Pro in all its glory — on the cheap. The Luvvitt Clear View case is made of flexible TPU, which makes holding the iPad grippy — while protecting it from drops. Its raised lips ensure that the screen never touches the ground, keeping your camera lens and screen (relatively) safe from harm.
Just because the price of admission for an iPad Pro costs an arm an a leg, doesn’t mean the case that protects it should. The Moko Case is made from durable PU leather, and its inner microfiber lining is soft on your screen. The built-in magnetic strip automatically puts your iPad Pro to sleep when you close the cover, and you can even charge your Apple Pencil on the side — without ever taking off the case.
This faux leather sleeve oozes professionalism, and looks like a briefcase for your mobile tech. It has a minimalist (synthetic) leather design, along with a soft microfiber interior to protect from daily hazards; the outer pocket is supremely useful. A magnet keeps the iPad locked in the case when you’re not using it. The built-in hand strap is nice, and there’s a stylus loop to hold your Apple Pencil, too.
