New iPad cases of the week
This week’s roundup of new iPad cases brings us the Power Sleeve, a sleeve with an embedded Lightning cable that allows you to leave your other charger at home. Plus, multi-purpose folios, backpacks, and much more. Read on!
The Power Sleeve (9.7-inch iPad Pro; $30 MSRP) sports a durable canvas exterior combined with a soft neoprene interior.
The sleeve includes a velcro closure inside its main flap for safe transportation, an Apple Pencil holder, and a built-in angled MFI-certified Lightning cable with which you can recharge your iPad when it’s stored away.
The Drop Tech (9.7-inch iPad Pro; $84.95 MSRP) features a hand strap in the back that rotates 360-degrees and can be adjusted for a comfortable fit—or even removed when you don’t need it.
This snap-on case sports a dual-layer design with rubber bumpers for additional shock absorption, and comes with matching port covers and a replaceable screen shield for extra peace of mind.
Made with a water-repellent exterior, the sling features a padded main compartment for your MacBook, a dedicated pocket for your iPad, and additional storage for your accessories. The DSLR Sling also comes with a side handle, an adjustable shoulder strap, and a tripod holder.
The slim and lightweight Basic Folio (12.9-inch and 9.7-inch iPad Pro, iPad Air and Air 2, all iPad mini models; $25 MSRP, $20.69 for select styles on Amazon) offers all-around protection with minimal bulk.
The folio case sports a microfiber lining to fend off scratches and smudges, includes four elastic bands to secure your iPad, and doubles as a stand in landscape orientation for hands-free use.
The Slim Fit (9.7-inch iPad Pro, iPad Air and Air 2; $77.23 MSRP) is a full-grain leather sleeve that comes in tan or black. The sleeve snugly fits around your iPad Pro to help prevent it from accidentally slipping out, and sports an integrated pocket for your Apple Pencil and accessories.
The Revolution (9.7-inch iPad Pro; $16.95 MSRP) promises to offer a superior grip, thanks to its anti-slip exterior.
The rugged case doubles as a stand in both portrait and landscape orientation thanks to its retractable kickstand, and sports port and buttons covers to prevent contamination from dirt and dust. It also comes with a built-in screen guard that is touchscreen compatible (of course). The Revolution is available in black, green/gray, pink/gray, white/gray, or blue/gray.
The folio case includes a detachable inner sleeve for standalone use, can be used as a stand in landscape or portrait orientation, and includes credit card and cash pockets inside its cover.
The Journal (9.7-inch iPad Pro; $35 MSRP) features a functional folio layout that supports multiple angles when used as a stand for typing or viewing.
The case offers unfettered access to all your ports and buttons, includes an Apple Pencil holder, and is compatible with the iPad Pro’s magnetic sleep/wake function.
The Grid (all iPad models; $80 MSRP) is a versatile backpack designed for advanced drop protection when you are out and about.
The Grid offers a dedicated padded compartment for larger electronics and plenty of extra room for your accessories—like your iPhone, iPad, documents, a water bottle holder, and even a hidden stash pocket that doubles as lumbar support for extra comfort.
