    Default Best Cases for the iPad Mini?

    Was wondering what everyone prefers in terms of cases and covers for the iPad Mini? Are the Polyurethane Smart Covers good enough, or is there something else out there you prefer!?

    I use a clear amazon basics back cover in conjunction with the Apple smart cover. Works well for me.

    I'm currently using the Speck CandyShell case on my iPad Mini. It offers great protection while maintaining the slim form factor that the Mini is known for.

    I have used the Smart Cover and it has been enough for my Mini. I mostly use it around the home, but when I take it out and about it is in a purse or briefcase.

    I use the ifrogz breeze case. Love it. Black and silver compliments my slate black one nice. http://www.zagg.com/ifrogz/cases/app...es-covers/7105

    This is what I do, and I also have a clear skin on the back.

    I just purchase a Mini Retina and was wonder if this cover would fit in the Mini Retina which is .01 inches thicker then the Mini? Is there any give in the case? What model do you have the 1961 or 1953 case?

    Sorry Harry, but I no longer have my Mini to test it out. I sold my Mini when I upgraded to the iPad Air. I can say though, that there is only a tiny bit of give to this case as it is pretty well form fitted to the original Mini. Therefore I'm not sure if it would fit it or not. I would check Specks website and read the reviews for this case. A lot of times you will find a reviewer who will say if it would fit a newer device like the Mini 2.

    Hi Harry Wild...Congratulations on your new iPad Mini Retina! I'm under the impression that the cutouts are slightly different.

    I have the Spigen Tough Armor for my Mini Retina currently, but I'm looking into getting a keyboard case soon.

    Was able to pick up the Zagg Keys bluetooth keyboard case for the iPad Mini today. I have the one for the Air and liked it a lot. So I got the one for the mini and so far so good.

    Did you get the Zagg Keys Folio, the Mini7, or the Cover? I ordered a Folio for my iPad mini that is getting ready to ship, and wanted to know what others thought about it.

    I had the Zagg Folio. It was ok. Actually it is the beat keyboard case that I had used for the iPad Mini. But the keys were a little cramped and it was nearly impossible for me to access the control center with the iPad in the case.
