The best iPad cases and covers for 2019

The best iPad cases and covers for 2019 feature a style for every kind of user

The Apple iPad (2018) provides everything you’d want in a tablet for an affordable price, including a vibrant 9.7-inch screen, snappy performance, and marathon battery life. The exterior design is familiar by now, and the latest iPad is physically identical to its predecessor, the iPad (2017). If you want to add some personality to Apple’s minimalist design and ensure your iPad is safe during travel, all it takes is the right case.

We also have pieces outlining the best iPhone XS cases, the best iPhone XS Max cases, and the best iPhone XR cases if you’re using Apple’s latest smartphones.

Skech Flipper Prime Case

This rugged case promises drop protection from falls of up to 8 feet thanks to heavily reinforced corners. There’s also a bezel that protrudes around the screen to prevent it from touching down and a removable folding cover that works with the automatic sleep/wake function and folds up to serve as a viewing or typing stand. You’ll also find a loop on the cover to hold your Apple Pencil. The transparent polycarbonate shell shows off the iPad inside and there are cutouts for all the features.

If your kids have an iPad, or they borrow yours from time to time, then you’ll want to make sure it’s securely protected and Speck’s new Case-E is a fun way to do it. This thick foam cover will guard your iPad from damage for falls of up to 6 feet. It also features detachable arms that lend your iPad a little personality and double up as a handy way of attaching it to the back of a car seat or propping it up on a table.

Zagg Rugged Messenger Case

Zagg Rugged Messenger iPad Case

A keyboard is always going to add some weight and bulk, and this one is heavy, but Zagg has developed a solution to this problem by allowing you to detach the iPad in its case from the keyboard portion. The Rugged Book has a full QWERTY keyboard with backlit keys, and you can customize the color. They are fairly well-spaced and quite comfortable to type on. The shell case that your iPad goes into combines a soft-padded interior with polycarbonate and steel to really safeguard your tablet. It snaps in and out of the magnetic hinge pretty easily, so you can ditch the keyboard when you don’t need it, but your iPad remains protected. The outer finish is textured for extra grip and it has a rugged look. You can recharge via the Micro USB port, and Zagg claims up to two years of typing battery life. Since you can remove the iPad in its case, you can also insert it in the hinge the other way round, so it can act as a stand or conceal the keyboard.

Noreve Tradition B Case

This gorgeous leather case is available in real or synthetic leather with different textured finishes and in a wide range of colors. Handmade in France, it’s a stylish and practical option that opens to reveal a cover with several handy slots in it. The magnetic clasp closure keeps it securely closed when you’re on the move and can also hold your Apple Pencil. Open it up and there is a sort of folding kickstand that enables you to prop the tablet up in landscape view. You will find generous cutouts for the ports, buttons, and other features, and there is a cutout on the back for the camera as well. It’s expensive, but the quality really shines through.

Griffin Survivor Journey Folio Case

Griffin’s recent offering is a versatile case with plenty to offer. The main shell is made of tough TPU, which will protect your tablet from falls of up to six feet. The inventive folio cover attaches via magnets, so it can be removed when you don’t need it. The cover also folds back and acts as a stand for typing and watching videos, and because of the built-in magnets, you can also stick your iPad to the fridge door. Plus, the gold, silver, and gray finishes are designed to match your iPad. Best of all, it’s also available for the iPad (2017), iPad Pro 9.7-inch, iPad Air, and iPad Air 2.

If adaptability is important to you, then take a look at Moshi’s folding Versacover origami cover. With easy folds you can set-up your iPad in the perfect position to facilitate easy reading, browsing, or video watching in both portrait and landscape positions. Built-in magnets also support your iPad’s sleep/wake function, so you can be sure your iPad isn’t wasting battery displaying the screen while covered. A shock-absorbing frame holds your iPad tightly, taking care of any accidental abuse, and the case completely covers the display when not in use, shielding that vulnerable area from harm.

Twelve South BookBook Case

Twelve South BookBook Case

You can disguise your iPad as an old book with this stylish case from Twelve South. These genuine leather cases look just like vintage tomes. Each case is distressed to create an aged aesthetic that brings some unique character. Two zippers with leather tags allow you to securely close your iPad inside. Open the case, and you’ll find a leather frame to hold your iPad snug and secure, along with a dark, soft, suede interior that prevents scratches. The interior leather sleeve that holds your iPad can be partially detached via two stud closures, so you can prop the case open and use it as a stand in a viewing or typing position. Although there’s no camera cutout in the book, the leather sleeve has one, so you can pop the closures open and snap a shot without having to fully remove the iPad.
