The best iPad Mini 6 cases will offer protection for your expensive device, and perhaps even a little personal flair to decorate your tiny tablet. Some also have features such as built-in kickstands, card slots, and magnetic covers. There are plenty to choose from, but that's where we can help you narrow the search.

Given that the iPad Mini 6 is a couple of years old, case makers have had time to make a wide variety of options from rugged and robust cases to the more slimline and stylish. We've considered the value, build quality, protectiveness, brand reputation and customer reviews of each of these cases to help you make an informed choice and find the right iPad Mini 6 case for you. 

If you don't yet have an iPad Mini 6, we'd recommend checking out our guide to the various iPad generations to discover which one you need, plus our breakdown of the iPad vs. iPad mini for a bit more direction on the differences between them.

What sort of case do I want for my iPad Mini 6?

Firstly, do you consider yourself to be a little bit clumsy? Then you'll want a pretty strong and reliable case to keep your device covered (excuse the pun). Should you ever drop or damage your device, having a more rugged case that has been drop tested or that meets the military standards can save you an awful lot of money in the long-term, instead of having to repair or replace your expensive Apple product. 

There's also the option of having a more stylish case equipped with other cool features such as magnetic coatings and built-in stand functions for when you want your iPad to be propped up on a desk, or when using magnetic accessories with your case to mount it. 

Ultimately, it really depends on your lifestyle and how you plan on using your iPad Mini 6 to determine what sort of case you'll need. You can even buy more than one if necessary, one for in the office and commuting and another pretty one for just at home.
