    Default Best cases for iPad Pro

    Maybe not everyone is a fan of cases, but there's a whole lot of iPad to keep safe from imperfections with the new iPad Pro. We're all about playing it safe and shielding against the inevitable drop or scratch with a well crafted case. Whether you go with one of Apple's own iPad Pro cases or opt for an aftermarket cover, there are some great options up for grabs that'll get the job done. Let's take a look at some of the best, shall we?

    OEM Cases:


    iPad Pro Smart Cover from Apple
    iPad Pro Silicone Case from Apple

    Aftermarket Cases:


    Logitech CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case at Apple
    MoKo Multi-Angle Folio Cover at Amazon
    LK Slim TPU Case at Amazon
    Inateck Sleeve Cover at Amazon
    Verus Magnetic Kickstand Folio Case at Amazon

    We'll definitely be seeing more cases from major manufacturers like OtterBox and Speck in the near future, which will be added to the list when available. Do you have a favorite iPad Pro case that's not listed? Reply with a link for us to check it out!

    I was just looking for a case today... I've had similar cases to this one for the Air & Air 2. Both were great cases

    I could almost swear that there has been a post @iMore about some of the cases ALSO mentioning one inexpensive screen protector. Cannot seem to find it anymore. Has anyone seen it?

    Thanks.

    Im kinda bummed that Apple isn't doing a Leather Smart Case for the pro. You'd think if they are toting this as a pro device that they would want leather as an option. I guess they want to drive people towards the overpriced keyboard cover.

    I picked up one ar Best Buy by Modal, I would not recommend it. It's cheap, $50, but doesn't work real well. I really don't like cases, but I always opt for one. This is an expensive device, and it's important to protect it. I traded up for my iPad 3 to this one, skipping over the Airs. It's early, I'll probably go through a couple of types.

    I am using the Logitech Create Keyboard. I like it..... a lot.

    It gives the Pro a great laptop-like experience. I don't have Apple's keyboard to compare, but based on the videos and pictures I have seen.... I don't think Apple's offering is comparable. And that's OK, if you are more of a minimalist.

    The shortcut keys, backlighting, smart connect...... all add up to a stellar product.

    I'm using the 13" Macbook Air neoprene case by incase. It fits the iPad Pro perfectly and has a loop for the Pencil for tabletop storage.

    I had the white Smart Cover and just couldn't stick with it.. Just picked up this Logitech Create Case (the non-keyboard model that seems to not nearly getting enough attention!). $80 USD, so a bit pricey, but seems really well built! And I plan on using the Apple bluetooth keyboard anyone when I need one, so this feels like a great choice. They had it in stock at my local Best Buy.

    Looking forward to the CoverBuddy by SwitchEasy. I've bought cases from them for most of my iDevices and they've all been pretty well thought out designs. I like that it has a holder for  Pencil that can be removed and will also tilt the iPad Pro up slightly for drawing. It will also work with the Smart Keyboard that I already have.

    I'm using the silicone case from Apple for now and it works well. I'll most likely switch between the two.

    I have recently purchased this case for my iPad Pro from Amazon.

    It shows a lot of promise and when I get it, I will write a review for you all, but I thought it would be worth mentioning, as it is very stylish!

    I finally bit the bullet and upgraded my iPad 3 to a new iPad Pro.

    I've skipped the Air series and haven't upgraded before this for one simple reason. Nobody is making a portrait easel case anymore. I've have, and loved my Marware Eco-Flip for my original iPad and then an updated version for my iPad 3.

    Since then I have never been able to find a portrait mode case other than the bulky 360 degree easel cases.

    The iPad Pro screams out for a less bulky snap in version of something like the portrait Eco-Flip case.

    For now I'm going to go naked with some egrips on the back, but I really hope some vendor sees the light and realizes portrait mode is a real thing.

    I have the Logitech Create keyboard, which I really like...when I'm working. Most of the time, though I prefer my iPad Pro bare. What I really want, though is a Smart Cover, with no back. But I absolutely hate the lack of color in the official Apple ones. Has anyone seen a 3rd party Smart Cover only? Without a back? I've been looking and can't find one...

    I've always loved the Smart Covers. So, I went ahead and got the gray Smart Cover for my incoming iPad Pro (Space Gray/Black, 128GB) from Verizon. I ordered it back on 11/19 and it's supposed to ship by 12/11. So, I"m looking for a nice back case for the Pro that will accommodate my Smart Cover. Any suggestions?

    This one looks really awesome:

    However, it's not compatible with the Smart Cover. They are supposed to be releasing one with a cutout soon, which I expected to be out by now. So, that's a no go for the time being.

    I have the logi create case without the keyboard. It's really slim and I love the feel of it. But, my goodness it is difficult to get the ipad out of it. If you're not carefull it looks like the plastic tabs that hold the ipad in will bend the metal sides where the glass and the metal starts. It makes me a little nervous. I don't think I'll be taking the ipad out a lot but still. I bought the case because it was the only case I could find that somewhat mimiked the surface pro 3 kickstand that I came from.

    I picked up this case on eBay for 9.99. The fit is perfect, just a tad bit thicker than the smart case I have on my iPad Air, it comes in about ten colors.

    This thread has been extremely useful, thanks to all who have contributed. I picked up my iPad Pro with no protection as I just could not decided on which way to go.

    I am pretty certain I am not a fan of the Apple Keyboard case - I am not a fan of the way it sits / looks when closed, and see it as quite bulky, the keyboard is nice for on the go, but I will primarily be using my iPad pro for most of my typing when in the office where I have a Logitech K810 & K811 (backlit, full function keys & microUSB rechargeable).

    I was put off of the Apple Case and Cover as I was a bit taken aback by the price - especially when paying so much already for the device and pencil! I didn't realise that the case came in two separate (and expensive) pieces and it is currently limited in available colours so i wanted to look at alternatives.

    Some of the alternatives I have seen (and listed here) are compelling - especially price wise, but most of them I feel are not ideal for me either, slightly too bulky, or with smart cover capability but non removable. The logitech Create is impressive, I am surprised there has not been more published about this one, but it looks to me like it would be quite spongey to use and have a lot of bounce when pressing the screen (obviously that is just an assumption), but I also don't like how much the case protrudes from the front of the iPad (where the keyboard would be on a keyboard case).

    So having taken the time to think about it, I'm right back to square one and I'm going to head back to Apple for the Apple Case and Cover - I'll be picking them up today! It will be nice to be able to properly stand the iPad up, and to not have to carry it in a padded envelope (which actually works incredibly well!). Yes they are more expensive, but they are really well made, nice feel, thin profile, wear quite well, and the cover is removable which will be important for me when chillaxing with pad and pencil.

    I bought a case from Tech Armor along with two screen protectors for
    Can $22, so less in US Funds. The case is an excellent fit, very plain black and I'm delighted with it.

    Sadly I had to return the UAG case. As awesome as it looks, it really was kind of cheaply made. Especially coming from UAG. I've been a big fan of UAG for years and their stuff has always been top notch but this case was a real let down. The kickstand doesn't sit flush with the case and needs a couple of more "tabs" to keep it securely lock in place and flush with the rest of the case. The backside silicone is too thin and when opening the kickstand I noticed that the silicone would pull ever so slightly away from the iPad. Might seem trivial to some but for 80 bucks, I expected more. And for those wondering, when I returned the case, I asked one of the employees if I could test out a couple of other UAG cases to see if I got a bum one and they were all the same. Cruising over the Amazon.com shows that some people also experienced the same thing. Too bad. I loved the look. Hope UAG takes note and fixes these issues. I had one of these cases on my Surface Pro 3 and it was built much better than the iPad Pro case.
