Top 5 Best New 9.7 Inch iPad Pro Cases

Planning on buying the new iPad? A protective case can prevent scratches, or other damage caused by drops and bumps. Keeping your iPad in a case or sleeve also helps to protect its resale value. Whether you’ll be the sole user of the tablet, or sharing it with accident-prone kids, the small investment you make in a protective iPad case is a smart way to protect the larger investment you’ve made in the iPad itself. Read on to see some of the best new iPad Pro cases available now.

1. SUPCASE Apple iPad Pro 9.7 Unicorn Beetle Case


While it may have one of the oddest names in the world of iPad cases, the “Unicorn Beetle” series of hard cases from SUPCASE get rave reviews from their customers. There’s a lot to like here: multiple color options, a handy kickstand, and a rugged backplate. This shock-resistant case is also easy to grip, making this a nice option for accident-prone adults, or for parents who plan to share the tablet with their kids.

You may also want to pick up a screen protector to give your device some added protection. We generally recommend tempered glass screen protectors, like this option from Ionic. However, you should note that some of the thicker glass screen protectors can interfere with the fit of your iPad case. A thinner option to consider would be a PET film protector from iLLumiShield. You might want to opt for the thinner option if you plan to keep your iPad in a case 24/7.

5. AmazonBasics 10-Inch Tablet Sleeve


Apple devices are beautifully designed, and feel great in your hands. That’s why lots of Apple fans avoid using a case. If you’re the kind of iPad user who prefers the “naked” look, you might prefer a sleeve to the kind of case that’s on your device 24/7. You can keep the tablet in a sleeve when needed, but still have the tactile pleasure of using your iPad Pro without a bulky case. While this case option isn’t ideal for those who plan to let their kids use their tablet, it’s a great option for those who primarily use the tablet for business. The tablet sleeve provides 360 degree protection while you transport your new iPad in a purse, backpack, or briefcase.
