The best iPad cases will not only protect your beloved device from accidental damage, but it also adds a touch of personal flair to your tablet. They can have other uses too, such as acting as a stand to prop up your tablet and if you use a case with a keyboard you can even turn it into a conveniently compact mini-laptop. Whilst we won't argue that caseless iPads look and feel great, their high price tag means you will definitely want to ensure you keep your device as safe as possible.

In this guide we take a look at a wide array of iPad cases based on different requirements and needs. We cover different budgets, from more affordable options up to higher-end models. We break them down based on protection level, functionality and colour range as well as value for money. This guide also covers a range of iPad model fits, so make sure to double check you're buying a case that is compatible with your device.
