PopSmart Faux Leather iPad Sleeve with Apple Pencil Holder. As the newest 9.7-inch iPad comes with Apple Pencil support, it’s actually a clever idea to “borrow” a leather sleeve from iPad Pro 10.5, as these two devices have similar dimensions.
And why would you need to buy the Apple leather sleeve if you can have a similar design from a third-party producer? The one from PopSmart offers two benefits. First, it’s cheaper. Secondly, it’s made of faux leather (thermoplastic polyurethane with a surface resembling a real leather), not the genuine one.
PopSmart Faux Leather iPad Sleeve is available in five desaturated colors: Black, Blue, Gold, Gray, and Pink. ⇢ Amazon – $21.99.

Dixie’s Window offers twelve different material and color combinations. The one featured above is Blue Chevron. ⇢ Etsy – £54.
DTTO Flexible Back Slim Case for iPad 9.7. Here is another interesting design that brings the functionality of the tri-fold stand case to a higher level. The case features a back shell that is made of soft and flexible thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU).
One benefit is obvious. It will let you remove the case much easier than the ones with a hard plastic shell. But there is something more important. On the inside of the TPU back, there is a honeycomb grid, which helps release 80% of the heat produced by the iPad.
Fits both 2018 and 2017 iPad 9.7. Supports wake-sleep feature. Available in five colors, including Red, shown above. ⇢ Amazon – $13.99.

Byrd & Belle iPad 9.7 Felt Sleeve. Are you tempted by the natural feel of the felt? Why not check out the wonderful sleeve hand-crafted by Byrd & Belle? The sleeve is made of 100% German wool which is smoother, tighter surface and higher density which makes for more solid stitching.
You can personalize the sleeve by adding a leather strap. What’s more, you can tell shop owners whether you use the Smart Cover, a silicone case, or just the iPad. ⇢ Etsy – £25.
MoKo Smart-shell Case for iPad 9.7 – 2018 and 2017 release. If you are looking for a slim and lightweight case, you should check out the Smart-shell range from the trusted case producer MoKo.

The premium-quality real laptop keyboard connects to the iPad automatically via the Bluetooth module. The case supports auto wake/sleep function.
The ProCase keyboard case looks like a perfect solution for a student or teacher. So far, it’s available in Black. ⇢ Amazon – $46.99.
