The best iPad Pro cases will protect it from bumps, spills and scratches whilst adding a touch of personalisation to better suit you. Some cases even double up as a stand to prop up your tablet or feature a keyboard to turn your tablet into a compact device on par with a laptop. Whatever kind of case you may be looking for, we've made sure to include a wide range of our favourites below with live widgets to link you directly to the best iPad Pro cases available today. 

The dazzling iPad Pro comes in two sizes: 11-inches and 12.9-inches. Both tablets and incredibly pieces of technology and truly a creative dream to work with thanks to their fast performance, stunning LED backlit Multi‑Touch display and Apple Pencil 2 support. They (understandably) don't come cheap, so making sure your device is well protected is a must to avoid any costly repairs or replacements. The newer 2022 models come in the same sizes as the 2021 generations, and most cases and sleeves for the previous models will fit them, but always check to make sure as the newer models are a little thicker than their predecessors.

How should I choose the best iPad Pro case?

Whether you're looking for the best iPad Pro 12.9 cases or the best iPad Pro 11 cases, the first thing to decide is what features you need and how much protection you want. The best iPad Pro cases with a keyboard can be useful not only for protecting the device but also for allowing you to use it like a laptop – something that's more feasible than ever with the power of the new 2022 M2-powered iPad Pros. For this, we recommend Apple's own Smart Keyboard Folio – or Logitech's Combo Touch if you want a trackpad.

These cases and folio-style iPad Pro cases also have the advantage of acting like a stand, allowing you to prop your iPad Pro up into a more comfortable position for watching media, browsing, taking notes or drawing. Tomtoc's nifty vertical iPad Pro case can even hold the Pro in a vertical position.

Another thing to consider is price. The best iPad Pro cases overall aren't exactly cheap. Apple's own Smart Folio retails at $79 / $89, and some of the best third-party cases have similar prices. That said, if you simply want to protect your device from scratches and you aren't too concerned about looks, there are very affordable iPad Pro cases available. Those from JETech and ESR are decent options.

Finally, you might also want to consider an iPad Pro sleeve. These can offer an alternative to a case if you think you don't need the protection of a hard cover – for example, if the device will already be well cushioned inside a bag. They can also be used in addition to a case, to provide extra cushioning. Just make sure that you always look at the specifications of each case and sleeve to check that it fits your iPad Pro model.

Will an older iPad Pro case fit the iPad Pro 2022?

It depends. The 2022 iPad Pro 12.9 6th generation and iPad Pro 11 4th generation come in the same sizes as the Pro 2021. However, despite the screen sizes being the same, there are some differences. The 2022 iPad Pros are very slightly thicker than their predecessors, which means they may need a dedicated case when it comes to products that have a very snug fit. 

With sleeves, there should be no problem, and some iPad Pro 2021 cases are also being advertised as suitable for the new iPads. To be sure, only buy a case that specifically says that it is suitable for your iPad.
