The cover has a magnetic closure and automatically wakes your iPad Pro when you open it. Inside you’ll find a softly textured frame that holds your tablet in place and three notches on the cover that support different angles to prop your iPad in landscape. All the openings you need are there, along with a handy pocket on the front cover and an elasticated loop for the included pen and stylus.

Otterbox Defender Series Case ($68)

Otterbox Defender Series Case

If you’re seeking 360-degree protection for your iPad Pro, then the Otterbox Defender Series should make your shopping shortlist. It’s a bulky case that consists of three distinct layers. This ensures that angle of your tablet is covered, which, in turn, translates to rugged drop protection. There are also port covers to keep dust and debris out, and if you open it up, you will find that it works well as a landscape stand. There is even a special slot to securely stow your Apple Pencil. There are accurate cutouts for your phone’s camera and speakers, however, the built-in screen protector can interfere with the Apple Pencil.

Spigen Smart Cover ($11)

Spigen Smart Cover

This slim cover provides great value for money. Your iPad Pro slots into a thin, plastic shell that features accurate cutouts for your tablet’s speakers, controls, ports, and camera. The faux-leather cover also features a microfiber lining and grooves that allow you to fold it back in one of several positions. The cover also works with your tablet’s sleep-wake function, so your iPad Pro will turn on as soon as you flip up the cover. It’s not rugged, per se, but it’s enough to guard against minor drops and scratches.

Amazon

Lifeproof Nuud Series Case ($75)

Lifeproof Nuud Series Case

Lifeproof’s offering isn’t cheap, but if you feel the need for a waterproof iPad Pro case, then it may be your only option. The case seals your Apple tablet inside and scores an IP68 rating, which means you can submerge it in up to 6.6 feet of water for an hour. The case also provides solid protection against sudden impacts, not to mention snow and rain. You can even fold the cover back and use your iPad Pro in landscape mode, or in one of several positions.

Amazon

Luvvitt Clear Grip Case ($13)

Luvvitt Clear Grip Case

Here is a minimalist option that can be used in conjunction with Apple’s Smart Cover or Smart Keyboard. Luvvitt’s offering is a transparent shell made of flexible thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), with reinforced corners that extend to the front and back of your device, preventing it from touching surfaces when placed facedown. You will also find openings for your phone’s controls, ports, speakers, and camera. The striped, textured sides are just a bonus that helps enhance your grip.

Amazon

Poetic Quarterback Case ($8+)

Poetic Quarterback Case

This case combines a TPU shell for shock absorption with a polycarbonate back panel, one that comes in a medley of colors. The design is common, sure, but it works well to keep your tablet protected. There are also tactile button covers and a slew of cutouts lining the case, which provide unfettered access to your tablet’s various features and functions. You can even use the case in conjunction with Apple’s Smart Cover or Smart Keyboard, or make use of a special clip that’s designed to hold your Apple Pencil.

Open it up and you will find that it works as a landscape stand with a choice of different angles. Your iPad Pro 9.7 is held in place by a special adhesive, which helps to keep the case slim and offers unobstructed access to buttons and ports. An elastic closure keeps it securely closed and adds to the notebook aesthetic. The cover does also support the automatic sleep/wake function of the iPad.
