Learn More About iPad Cases

When you spend a good $800 on an iPad Pro, you should buy a case to cover the device's scratch-prone aluminum shell. Although we all use our iPads in different ways (a college student taking notes in class, an illustrator painstakingly creating a new painting, a grandparent attempting to sign up for Netflix, or a kid purchasing a few extra lives for a computer game while their parents aren't looking), we all have one thing in common: we all need a case. The right iPad case will keep your investment safe from spills and drops, and it may even prevent you from hearing the Wilhelm Scream the next time it falls out of your hands. (We've all been there, carefully picking up our prized tablet with deliberate gestures, as if examining a crime scene, only to be relieved when no cracks are discovered.) The right case can also increase the versatility of your iPad by allowing you to adjust its height or angle. And, of course, it can be attractive.

To find the best case or sleeve for all sorts of people, we reached out to different Moment Pro Creative experts, art directors, illustrators, artists, and other folks with great taste. If you have a new iPad, download Moment Pro Camera App and Editing apps and games and keep it safe with a new case. For any other models, browse the options below.

Let's dive into iPad Cases and the best screen cover for your needs, in terms of both security and style.

Why Should I use a Case?

iPad Case models are extra protective thanks to a softer durometer bioplastic and thicker sidewalls with ribs to absorb impacts. These cases, for as protective as they are, are very slim. They've kept a very low profile while adding that bumper around the outside as well as a bit above the front edge of the iPad.

Having Quality iPad Cases is a Good Insurance

A unique way of thinking about buying a high-quality iPad case or 12.9 cases is to think of the purchase as buying insurance. Apple products have some of the highest resale value in the tech space.

Definitely more than their PC rivals. If you buy a good case for your Apple portable, you'll almost certainly get a much higher price when the time comes to replace the tablet or laptop. What is the reason for this? Since the hardware would appear to be completely new. A nearly new-looking used car will often demand a far higher price than one that appears battered, neglected, and tired, just like a car.

Investing in a good argument for Apple's new tablet would protect your investment. But when you're ready to upgrade to the next-generation model next year, you'll be able to get the most money for your barely used, flawless Pro.

When reviewing your options in iPad protective cases, think about the following:

Do you use it a lot? If you do, consider higher quality materials that will last, like the Nomad Rugged iPad Cover.

Do you need a keyboard?

Do you tend to drop things? In that case, you would want good impact resistance, especially if you have uncarpeted floors.

Do you use your iPad near food or drink?

Do you want a carrying strap or handle? Some carrying straps can securely attach to your hand, arm, or even leg.

Do you want a place to carry the charging cord and other accessories?

Do you have or work with young children who drop-kick your iPad?

Or do your children have iPads that they use regularly?

Do you use it over carpeting?

Do you use it out in the field?

Would you want to use it underwater, for instance, to take photographs?

How much of an issue is the weight of your iPad case?

What type of bag do you carry it in?

Do you travel a lot? Would you pack your Ipad into luggage or perhaps into a bag or briefcase that contains other things as well?

Do I want a case quickly slapped together on a speed line or hand-made with care and precision?

What are my "must-have" features?

Do I need a secure place for the Apple Pencil?

What about other functions like a place to store papers or cards?

Consider the features you want and how well they fit into the style of the case you're considering. Just because a design claims to have a "pencil holder" doesn't mean it's well-designed or thoughtfully incorporated into the design.

Many companies simply sew an elastic loop to an outside seam and call it a day. They don't care that the elastic loop doesn't really hold your $100+ Apple Pencil, that it quickly falls out and can be lost as a result.
