12 classy iPad Pro case covers and sleeves (9.7 and 12.9-inch)

Best iPad Pro 9.7 and 12.9 case covers and sleeves

Original Apple Smart Cover is not the most original way to protect your iPad Pro with style. Here are the alternatives.

Apple’s iPad Pro is now available in two sizes. The bigger one, with the 12.9-inch display, was introduced in 2015. The smaller tablet featuring the 9.7-inch display is available since March 2016.

If the 13-inch tablet were too big for you needs, the newer iPad Pro should be the right one.

Having the screen size of the original iPad, as well as iPad Air, it’s the most advanced Apple tablet so far, with A9X/M9 chips, 12-megapixel back camera, and 4K video recording.

As iPad Pro was originally available in one, and now in two sizes, you’ll have to be careful when shopping for cases on third-party sites.

If you’ll see plain “iPad Pro” in the product info, without the screen size (12.9 or 9.7), it will most likely mean that the producer sells the 12.9-inch model – the one that was available earlier.

One thing to note is that the dimensions of the 2016 iPad Pro, the model with the 9.7-inch display, are exactly the same as the dimensions of iPad Air 2.

The bad news is that the original Apple Smart Cover for 9.7-inch iPad Pro is only compatible with this model. Also, the Smart Cover for the iPad Air is only compatible with this particular tablet, and not iPad Pro 9.7.

The similarity of dimensions, however, will let you buy for your iPad Pro 9.7 the cases with corners straps and sleeves that were designed for iPar Air.

If you’ll decide to buy the iPad Pro case on third-party websites, it’s good to know the exact dimensions of your model. You may want to double-check the size or ask the seller for confirmation when making an order on Etsy (the largest online store with hand-crafted goods) or eBay.

iPad Pro dimensions ( height × width × depth )

Model Inches Millimeters
iPad Pro 9.7 (2016) 9.40 × 6.60 × 0.24 240 × 169.5 × 6.1
iPad Pro 12.9 (2015) 12.0 × 8.68 × 0.27 305.7 × 220.6 × 6.9

Almost all cases offered on Etsy are made to order, so just in case, give a shop owner the name of your device, together with the exact dimensions, for instance: “iPad Pro 9.7, dimensions: 9.4 × 6.6 × 0.24 inches / 240 × 169.5 × 6.1 millimeters.”

iPad Pro case – recommended sites

And the last thing. Check out our recommendations of online stores where you’ll find more iPad cases to consider.

Amazon – the best site to find the alternatives for the original iPad case. There are currently almost 9 million results to a search phrase “iPad case”. It’s a good destination if you are looking for a more affordable smart cover – in a lot more color and design variations.

Caseable – if you prefer a book-style cover rather than a slim-fit smart case, make sure to explore Caseable. You find here hundreds of gorgeous cover designs from many artists. You’ll be able to modify the selected design – or even design your own one from scratch.

eBay – the natural choice for many users who want to get quality stuff at attractive prices. You’ll find here many iPad cases, the ones that resemble Apple’s Smart Cover, but also several other designs.

Etsy – this is our favorite marketplace for hand-crafted items. You’ll find here tons of beautiful iPad sleeves and covers. Many of these cases can be customized to your needs. If you want to get a unique, insanely cute sleeve – look no further than Etsy.

We will update the list when the new iPad Pro 9.7 case covers are released. Have we missed anything? Please share your recommendations in the comments below. Thanks!
