PROS

The case protects the tablet from all sides, making sure that the gadget survives 5-feet drops. The magnetic kickstand packs enough punch to let you attach the tablet to the fridge (almost any metal surface) and hold the device without dropping.

CONS

The microfiber interior attracts and collects dust and pet hairs. 

OUR VERDICT

This model from Zugu Case is the toughest iPad case you will find. Despite its size, the case is not restricting access to the USB port. The anti-slide front will be able to minimize battery drain, whereas the kickstand will let you select between 8 viewing angles.

The detachable keyboard incorporates keys with generous spacing between them, minimizing misclicking. The springs make the keys quite responsive too. The backlighting features 3 very different brightness levels and 7 color options. 

CONS

There are only two color options available. 

OUR VERDICT

Both the iPad case and the keyboard that this product is packing are, at the very least, above average, so the price makes this package almost too attractive to refuse. The case will protect the tablet and facilitate heat dissipation, while the keyboard will turn that tablet into a laptop.

CONS

The kickstand is a little flimsy. 

OUR VERDICT

Rantice Hybrid Shockproof Rugged iPad Case will protect the tablet from the biggest threat there is - kids. Also, this is the case we'd recommend bringing with you on the road, especially when that road is expected to be bumpy.

ZUGU CASE With Magnetic Stand

Protecting at all Costs

The case from Zugu Case is pretty bulky, not the biggest compliment you can give an iPad case. Stick with us though. The model's bulky because its construction contributes more than most. For starters, the magnetic stand lets you choose between eight viewing angles, whereas most cases do not even go above two. Next, the kickstand's magnetic properties are so strong that you can attach the case wrapped around an iPad to fridges and most metal surfaces without worrying about the gadget falling down.

Still, chances are, you will drop the tablet sometime in the future, even the most responsible users do. When that happens (provided the distance is less than five feet), the case will absorb the shock and protect the gadget. Adding more, not necessarily as impressive but also quite interesting is the anti-slide cover that will prevent battery drain.

Now, the materials here are top-notch, from the synthetic leather exterior to the microfiber interior but the issue is that the interior attracts and collects dust and pet hairs, so you'll have to wipe the case from the inside at times.

Nevertheless, not even counting the long elastic stylus pocket, what the people behind Zugu Case are presenting here is much more impressive and attractive than most iPad cases, even though the finish is not as elegant as you'd expect from the high-end bracket.

BORIYUAN Keyboard

The Case and the Keyboard Too

Boriyuan Backlit Detachable Keyboard Smart Case spoils everything with its name but we will discuss the product regardless.

First, as the name suggests, the package includes a detachable backlit keyboard. The 'board is made from quality ABS plastic, features well-spaced keys, and above-average springs, making the keyboard pretty responsive. You can choose between three brightness levels and seven vibrant backlighting options so that you can type in the dark. Because the keyboard attaches to the case magnetically, you will not be adjusting and carrying the two devices separately.

Shifting gears, the case's not bad too. Made from premium leather, the exterior will be protecting the tablet from accidental drops and bumps, while the soft anti-slip interior will be shielding the gadget from scratches. Not unlike most iPad cases, the model's featuring three dents, so you can prop up the gadget into three different viewing angles. Last but not least, though the case is quite slim, its construction will be facilitating heat dissipation, preventing the tablet from overheating.

Without going into unnecessary details, considering that both the keyboard and the case are way above average, Boriyuan Backlit Detachable Keyboard Smart Case makes you an offer that you might be unable to refuse.

ProCase Stand Folio Cover

The Most Elegant One

ProCase iPad Case is hands-down the most elegant-looking model within this group. Its premium leather front looks classic, professional, sleek, and polished, with tasteful patterns and this grainy texture that is more than pleasant to the touch. Inside, the case is soft, shielding the tablet from scratches. Compared to its competition within the aforementioned group, the case is a little thick, which is unfortunate but understandable considering everything else that the product is bringing to the table. "Everything else" includes the precise cutouts that enable seamless interaction with the tablet but without restricting access to the ports, speakers, cameras, anything that the gadget reveals to the outside world.

Following the common playbook deployed across most iPad cases, the model's offering multi-angle adjustment, letting you select between three anti-slip stripes. Opposing these slots is the magnetic closure that easily snaps on when closed.

Assuming that the proverbial table is not attractive enough already, the case also adopts a relatively large front pocket and integrates an elastic pencil holder, which will definitely come in handy since the package supplies you with a Procase stylus pen.

Summing everything up, ProCase iPad Case is too good to pass up, from its elegant appearance to the numerous features improving the overall user experience with an iPad.

ProCase Protective Smart Cover

Affordable yet Reliable

ProCase Protective Case is that standard affordable case that most people picture when they're reading: "an iPad case". Its polyurethane construction makes the case ultra-slim and quite lightweight yet pretty tough and durable, adding minimal bulk but also protecting the tablet against scratches and moderate impact. Meanwhile, the translucent frosted back will also be making sure that the gadget's back is protected but without hiding the company's signature logo. There's this noticeable chemical smell to the case initially but, within the first few days, the smell goes away.

What the people behind the product are referring to as a humanized design is the tri-fold front that lets you choose between two standing positions, aiding both typing and viewing. Borrowing from the industry's playbook, the case supports iPads' automatic Sleep and Wake features, so opening and closing the magnetic closure will wake the tablet up and put it back to sleep. The closure's pretty secure, which means you won't have to worry about accidentally opening the case.

Bottom line, ProCase Protective Case keeps the price low but without stooping to the cheapest cases' level. No, aside from lacking any bells and whistles, the case can trade blows with the most expensive models where it counts (comfort and protection).

Rantice Hybrid Shockproof Rugged

Practically Bulletproof

Rantice Hybrid Shockproof Rugged iPad Case is an odd one, as you can probably tell from the pictures. Yes, this monstrosity will protect the tablet from any harm, no doubt about that. With its shock-absorbing properties, the case will make sure that the iPad survives considerable drops and bumps. Adding three layers (two hardcore plastic layers and soft silicone on the outside), the case shields the tablet, all while remaining pretty easy on the fingers. To add more, the model also raises the screen and adds bezel edges to provide extra, all-around protection.

Now, the compromise is that this one is not featuring the expected stand slots, only offering this flimsy little kickstand that will admittedly enable relatively comfortable viewing but will not hold under pressure, so we would recommend treading lightly with this one. The cutouts, though? Precise, not covering the cameras, not blocking the speakers, not limiting access to the ports.

In other words, Rantice Hybrid Shockproof Rugged iPad Case is the best option for kids who do not care that Apple products can be rather expensive and do not quite grok what erring on the side of caution means. This is also an excellent travel case, protecting the elegant gadget from the rough and tumble that the road always comes at you with.

What Is an iPad Case?

iPads are the most elegant mobile computing and entertainment powerhouses and pretty ergonomic to boot too. They're fragile though, not unlike most Apple electronics. To offset these gadgets' fragile construction, you wrap them in a case, hence these iPad cases. Using these cases, you can protect the tablet from scratches, smudges, dust, and gouges. The best iPad cases are even able to provide shock-absorbing properties, cushioning the gadget inside and ensuring that even accidental drops and hits do not produce noticeable scratches and do not damage the circuitry inside.

Generally speaking, the protective covers we're talking about here come equipped with magnets that support the tablets' automatic Wake and Sleep functionality. Oftentimes, they're also offering multiple stand slots so you can rotate between different viewing angles that are more conducive to work and entertainment. Setting these details aside, what's left is extra features like document pockets where you can hide paperwork and pencil holders that keep different styli accessible within reach.

Find Apple products overpriced and overhyped? It is your prerogative, we're not here to argue that. In that case, you can check out these Android tablets and 10-inch Android tablets.
