Owning one of the best iPad mini 6 cases will help you keep your compact tablet safe as well as making it more personal to you. It's important to take good care of your tech - especially when it's as small as the iPad Mini! Whilst the small design makes it a great, portable device to own, the size puts it at a higher risk of damage or wear and tear. So grabbing yourself a case should definitely be a priority to keep it safe.

We've compiled the best iPad Mini 6 cases for a variation of budgets and needs. We take a look at how each pick protects your device as well as value for money. If you're not sure whether to invest in the iPad Mini 6, we tested it in depth in our iPad mini (6th Gen) review and found it to be a vast improvement on prior models with Apple Pencil 2 support and a larger display.
