New iPad cases of the week

This week’s roundup of new iPad cases brings us a new look to an old favorite: The classic DODOcase has more customizable options than ever before. Read on!

The customizable DODOcase (9.7-inch iPad Pro and iPad mini 4; starts at $64.95 MSRP) lets you create your own classic DODOcase look, with different colors, patterns, and leather options to choose from. Plus, you can add an optional monogram or cover text in gold or black.

This slim, durable case features a sleek polymer tray for your iPad, can be used as a stand in landscape orientation, includes an elastic band to secure its cover, and sports an integrated Apple Pencil loop.

hex brigade ipad


The Brigade Messenger Bag (all iPad models; $89.95 MSRP, $79.95 on Amazon) is a modern messenger bag with dedicated faux-fur lined compartments for your iPad and laptop.

Made of water-resistant woven cotton, the bag comes with an external grab handle, an adjustable shoulder strap, a rear document pocket, and several slots for your iPhone and other accessories. For extra peace of mind, the Brigade’s flap is secured by two quick-release buckles, easy to release when needed.

The Armorbox (9.7-inch iPad Pro; $25 MSRP, $20 on Amazon) is all about impact protection, thanks to its rugged design. It sports a retractable kickstand for hands-free use, includes press-through button covers to keep out dirt and other contaminants, and comes in green, black, or pink.

The Plex Shield (9.7-inch iPad Pro; $50 MSRP) adds a thin protective layer of resilient tempered glass to your screen.

The screen shield is easy to install, and offers a smooth surface with a smudge-resistant finish. Like all good screen protectors, it doesn’t hinder your iPad’s touchscreen functions.

The Joy Factory

The aXtion Bold (9.7-inch iPad Pro; $60 MSRP, $80 with an added hand-strap bundle on Amazon) sports a water-resistant rugged enclosure made of premium grade silicon. This lightweight case has been tested to withstand drops from up to six feet high, includes an integrated screen shield, and features a lens cover to protect your rear camera.

logitech create ipad


The Create (9.7-inch iPad Pro; $130 MSRP) combines a versatile folio with a full-size keyboard. We loved this case when it first launched for the larger 12.9-inch iPad Pro, so this is a welcome addition to the 9.7-inch Pro accessory family. 

Available in black or blue, the case offers hands-free use for typing or viewing in landscape orientation, storage for your Apple Pencil, and a sturdy synthetic weave exterior material to withstand daily wear and tear. The keyboard relies on the iPad Pro’s Smart Connector for power, and comes with backlit keys for easy typing in dim conditions.

solo vectorslim ipad


The Vector Slim (12.9-inch iPad Pro; $60 MSRP, $46.74 on Amazon) sports a rugged textured surface designed to prevent it from sliding when it’s propped up.

The folio case includes a protective tray for your tablet, doubles as a stand with support for multiple viewing angles in landscape orientation, and is compatible with the iPad Pro’s magnetic sleep/wake function. Additionally, it features a microsuede lining to fend off scratches and a magnetic flap to secure its cover.

toastmade cover ipad


The Toast Cover (all iPad models; $39 to $84 MSRP, same price range on Amazon) is a wood veneer skin that covers the back of your iPad. This skin is easy to install, sports a grooved exterior that offers extra grip, comes in three wood types, and can be customized in a few different ways—add a front panel, optional etching, or a personalized message. The Toast Cover is fully compatible with Apple’s Smart Cover, and includes a SIM card cutout.

The black or brown Lincoln Briefcase (all iPad models; $318.14 to $336.32 MSRP) gives you plenty of room to protect and store all your gear. Available in two sizes, the leather briefcase includes a padded quilted compartment for your MacBook, a dedicated pocket for your iPad, a removable shoulder strap, and two handles for an alternative carrying option.
