If you’re in the market for Apple’s 10.5-inch iPad Pro, you should know that any previous cases made for the 9.7-inch model will not fit the new tablet. It’s slightly wider than its predecessor (6.8″ vs 6.67″), significantly longer (9.8″ vs 9.45″), and it has a larger rear camera.

Never fear, there are already several cases available for the new iPad, and we’ve taken it upon ourselves to track down the best options. Below is our list of the best cases for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, selected based on manufacturers’ reputation, user reviews, and case features.

Apple Smart Cover

If you want the best fitting/functioning cover for your new iPad, and money isn’t really a factor, you’re probably going to want to check out Apple’s Smart Cover. It only covers one side of your iPad (display by default, rear if you fold it over), but it snaps on and peels off easily using magnets, and it folds up to act as a stand with multiple viewing angles. I also like that it’s ultra-thin and comes in several colors.

Buy for $49.

Apple also has a more expensive and luxurious cover for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro called the Leather Smart Cover for $69.

JETech Case Cover

JETech is a popular accessory-maker on Amazon known for offering OEM-style products at cheap prices. Their products typically get high ratings from customers, and we’ve had good experiences specifically with their iPad cases. This is their Apple Smart Case-esque Case Cover. The synthetic case slips on the rear of the iPad and then the front is covered by a Smart Cover-like flap—includes magnets that activate the iPad’s Sleep/Wake function. If you like this style of case and don’t want to pay Apple’s prices, check this one out.

I-Blason Slim Halo Case

The Halo case from i-Blason is a clear protective cover for your 10.5 inch iPad Pro. It has a completely transparent back, which also features a convenient stand that makes it easy to watch shows and videos hands-free. Other features include a slim design and full shock, drop and scratch protection. This is a heavier duty case than those mentioned above, but not so much so that it makes the iPad a nuisance to travel with.

Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro Case

The Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro offers dual layer protection and convenience without compromising sensitivity. Thermoplastic polyurethane and polycarbonate provide cushion during accidental drops. All phone ports are covered to block dust and debris. Built-in screen protector protects the screen from scratches. This case is designed to withstand heavy use and demanding conditions. This is a little more rugged than the i-Blason Halo, but note that it is not waterproof.

 Buy for $25.

Moko Slim Stand Cover

This one is similar to the aforementioned JETech Case cover, which again is a lot like Apple’s Smart Case. It has a synthetic back cover and a folding, magnetic front cover that can automatically wake the iPad up and put it to sleep. It has a premium PU leather on the outside, microfiber on the inside to protect your iPad from scratches, and no bulky bezels around the display to allow for unobstructed swiping. Comes with a lifetime warranty.

Buy for $9.

Moko Clear Grip TPU Case

For those looking for a more minimal case, check out the Clear Grip from Moko. It’s a soft TPU case that snaps on the back of your iPad Pro and it has a unique ruffled design for a grippier feel. Other features include raised edges at the 4 corners for added screen protection, cutouts for all of the ports, buttons and speakers, and it even comes with a lifetime warranty from the manufacturer.

Buy for $8.

Belk Vintage Leather Folio

If you’re looking for something a little more professional, check out this Vintage Leather Folio from Belk. It’s not real leather, but Belk says they used premium PU leather here with a special texture to give it that vintage look and feel. Like most folios, this case has a book-like design with a snap-in cradle for your iPad—giving it full protection. Other features include built-in magnets that activate your iPad’s auto-sleep/wake functions and built-in slots for an ID, credit cards and cash.

Buy for $16 (sale price).

Logitech Slim Combo Keyboard Case

And for those of you in the market for a keyboard case, there’s the Logitech Slim Combo. This case was designed specifically for the new 10.5-inch iPad (there is also a 12.9-inch model). It has no charging cable or batteries—it gets all its power through the iPad via its Smart Connector. This allows it to sip power—0.3% – 2.3% of battery per hour of typing—and makes pairing instant. Other features include full-size, backlit keys, with 3 levels of brightness and an Apple Pencil holder.

Buy for $130.

    The Logi Slim Combo is uhhhh-mazing. Got mine yesterday.

    • Now that I’ve done more serious typing beyond spamming keys at the Apple Store, I can say I am blown away by the Slim Combo keyboard. I haven’t tried a lot of keyboards by any means, but for whatever reason it is perfectly tuned for how I type. I can’t articulate what balances they struck in a way that does the keyboard justice – and it could even be my exact (12.9″) unit – but I freaking love it and I hope it never, ever breaks. Even typing on my lap was a joy. I would pay a lot of money to replace my MBP’s butterfly v2 keyboard with the Slim Combo keyboard.

      The product design is very well done. The case has an integrated stand, the SC is very convenient and exactly the right magnetism, and I really appreciate the non-keyboard half folding under the keyboard to lift it up just slightly. The stand is very sturdy and the case seems sufficiently protective. It’s heavy, which is unfortunate, but everything else about it is so good that I can easily forgive that limitation.

      I have found only one flaw: if you have the cover on and you grab the keyboard side firmly, such that you squeeze it a little, you’ll wake the iPad. It doesn’t take much pressing in to trigger a wake. This could potentially lead to repeatedly waking the iPad if you’re carrying it while walking around. I don’t intend to carry it with only the keyboard case far enough for it to matter, plus I can just grab it by the non-keyboard side, so to me it’s a non-issue. But it bears mentioning.

      Bonus: I’ve been kicking myself because I didn’t return my Booq Viper Hardcase 13 in time a couple years ago. Well it turns out the iPad with Slim Combo fits perfectly! Sliding it in, it became clear that the iPad Pro 12.9″ w/ Slim Combo is a great detachable 2-in-1.

      • I like the keyboard but requiring that we only use the iPad in horizontal mode is not happening. I like vertical mode too much. So I use the JTech BT keyboard from Amazon, $11 and nearly a perfect typing experience.
