MOFRED Apple iPad Air

An Executive Profile

Mofred Premium iPad Case puts bright, childish cases to shame. Offering an execute, classy-looking design, this case is something that you can bring to any business meeting and any upscale gathering without appearing immature. From fine stitching to meticulous attention to detail, this is what high-quality tablet cases are supposed to be and look like.

The design is pretty thorough too though, adding multiple features that protect the gadget and improve interactions between you and said gadget. To name one, the screen-protecting panel will be able to keep the screen looking new, shielding iPads' displays from dust, scratches, and gouges. Provided you want to make 100% sure that the screen remains clean and pristine, the stylus pen supplied with the case will also protect its surface from fingerprints and scratches, all whilst providing complete control interacting with the tablet. Besides its PU leather encasing, this product is adopting non-scratch microfibre lining so that you do not have to worry about any long-term damages.

Now, where the interaction part is concerned, the model's featuring an integrated magnetic strip inside, waking up the iPad when opened without delay and making the gadget go to sleep the second you close it, meaning that you will not be wasting precious battery life.

The last two items on the list include the case's flip-based design that allows you to choose between horizontal and vertical stand options and the document pocket at the front that lets you store and hide paperwork.

You add to this already impressive mix the three stand slots and good luck arguing that Mofred Premium iPad Case does not deserve its premium classification.

ZtotopCase IPad Air iPad Pro 10.5

Best Case for iPad Pro

The iPad case from ZtotopCase boasts top-notch workmanship, with its exterior made from premium synthetic leather and interior adopting microfibre lining. Needless to say, the soft microfibre lining will be able to protect the gadget from outside harm without causing any harm on its own. The product's precise cutouts fit iPad Air 10.5" 2019 (3rd generation) and iPad Pro 10.5" (2017) models to a tee, so we would not recommend using this case with different iPad versions.

Besides first-rate craftsmanship, the product is comparable to most iPad cases, from the magnetic enclosure that supports the automatic Wake and Sleep functions to the two stand slots that allow you to choose between two different viewing angles.

We would have deducted points due to these two slots because they're not very deep but, more often than not, they should prove enough to stabilise and support the gadget. Plus, we really like the pencil holder that keeps iPad Pencils and different styluses (styli?) always accessible, the hand strap that keeps the gadget secure, and the organiser pocket where you can put paperwork, notes, cash, credit cards, anything you want.

In other words, when you do not want anything especially different from most iPad cases except constructed from high-grade materials and boasting a more presentable appearance, this product from ZtotopCase is something that you should at the very least entertain purchasing.

KHOMO iPad Mini 4

Going Slim

KHOMO iPad Mini 4 Rubberised Case, to everyone's surprise, has been designed to accommodate iPad Mini 4 models (the 2015 version) but the company also sells cases that will fit different iPad iterations too. With this one (and those different cases too), you're buying something that protects the gadget not only from scratches but also from impact. Despite that, the case adds less than 0.15 inches to the iPad, whilst its textured finish offers durable protection and secure handling.

Now, the magnets added to the enclosure that wake the tablet up when opened and send it to sleep when closed goes without saying. The issue here is that these cover magnets are not strong enough to keep the device closed when held upside down and/or at an angle, which is unfortunate because, not unlike its peers, this case allows you to select between 35- and 65-degree viewing angles. Still, the sturdy triangular stand with an additional magnet will ensure secure and comfortable viewing and typing. Also, who holds an iPad upside down and expects it to remain closed? Why?

Anyway, provided you want to keep your favourite gadget protected all whilst making sure that the jacks, ports, and buttons remain accessible, KHOMO iPad Mini 4 Rubberised Case is the direction you might want to look at.

STNTAKS 9.7 Silicone

The Toughest Assignment

STNTAKS Silicone iPad Case looks tough, primarily because the case is tough. Its construction, adding three TPU layers and hard polycarbonate to the back, has remarkable (by iPad cases' standards) shock-absorbing properties, protecting the gadget inside against most damage coming from bumps, accidental drops, hits, and more. What's more, the case protects the enclosed iPad from all corners and sides, making sure that scratches are not coming from any direction and that even considerable drops do not damage its surface and circuitry. As a bonus, thanks to the precise cutouts, the case is able to shield the tablet from harm without blocking access to the ports, sensors, speakers, cameras, etc.

Setting the military-grade enclosure aside, what we have here is nothing that different from generic iPad cases, from the integrated stand that offers two viewing positions to the slim profile protecting the tablet without making its footprint too bulky. Where things get somewhat hairy is the stiff on/off switch, not the biggest downside you can find with these cases yet also not something we can write off without mentioning.

To give you the gist, if you'd like to ensure that the tablet you're using day in and day out lasts as long as possible, wrapping that tablet in STNTAKS Silicone iPad Case is the most reasonable decision you can make.

ESR Case for iPad Pro 11

Choosing Transparency

ESR Rebound Soft Shell Case is, as you can probably tell, transparent, not hiding the tablet's elegant aesthetic to protect the device. Still, the case manages to shield the gadget from sunlight, preventing watermarks, and from scratches too, including from the inside, thanks to the flexible TPU construction with its rubber-like properties.

With transparent cases, the downside is that they're not smudge-resistant and will always show fingerprints, that's the trade-off for displaying the iPad inside. As long as you're fine with that, the case is ace, from its easy-to-press button covers protecting the tablet from dust without obstructing access to the buttons, ports, jacks, speakers, cameras, and more to the enhanced camera protection making sure that the most fragile (and the most expensive) part remains safe and sound. We're also awarding bonus points to the device's design that protects the enclosed iPad without affecting Apple Pencil pairing/charging.

Last but certainly not least, the back-only profile will be protecting the tablet without adding bulk, whilst the shock-absorbing corners will make sure that even noticeable drops do not bring the tablet to its knees. In short, ESR Rebound Soft Shell Case lets you showcase the iPad without exposing its fragile side.

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. At times, these protective 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.
