Best Apple iPad Pro 10.5 and 12.9 cases sleeves - 2017 models

Here are the best iPad Pro 2017 cases from around the web, including genuine leather sleeves, stand case covers, keyboard cases, and more.

The 2017 Apple iPad Pro was introduced in two sizes (10.5 and 12.9-inch) at the beginning of June.

Both models share most features, so the only real difference between them is the size of the screen. The smaller iPad 10.5 costs $649 for the most affordable version. The prices of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2017) start at $799.

Both models feature Retina display with ProMotion technology. ProMotion automatically adjusts the refresh rate to the movement of the content. As a result, power consumption can be considerably reduced.

The new 64-bit A10X Fusion chip with six cores makes the 2017 iPad Pro tablets faster than most currently sold PC laptops. Thanks to the new processor, you can effortlessly play games, render 3D models, or edit 4K videos.

Both devices have full integration with Apple Pencil (sold separately), fully benefiting from the ProMotion technology.

Many users will also think about getting the original Smart Keyboard. Both iPad Pro models are ready to connect with this original Apple accessory. In the overview below, we’ll show some alternatives, including the one that connects via Smart Connector.

As usual, we complete the list with the dimensions. It’s good to know them when purchasing the case. If you are buying the sleeve, double-checking the size is a must, especially when the accessory is offered by a third-party seller.

iPad Pro dimensions ( height × width × depth )

Model Inches Millimeters
iPad Pro 10.5 (2017) 9.8 × 6.8 × 0.25 250.6 × 174.1 × 6.1
iPad Pro 12.9 (2017) 12.0 × 8.68 × 0.27 305.7 × 220.6 × 6.9
iPad Pro 12.9 (2015) 12.0 × 8.68 × 0.27 305.7 × 220.6 × 6.9
iPad Pro 9.7 (2016) 9.40 × 6.60 × 0.24 240 × 169.5 × 6.1

As you see, the dimensions of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro released in 2015 and 2017 are exactly the same. However, the location of the buttons, speakers, and slots is different. Most third-party sellers have already updated product pages of their old cases with the info that they fit only first-generation iPad Pro 12.9.

Obviously, it doesn’t affect the sleeves. So, if you already own the leather sleeve for the bigger iPad Pro (and it’s in a condition you still accept), you can use it for the second-generation model.

Where can I buy iPad Pro 2017 cases and sleeves?

And the last thing before the list. Check out our favorite online stores where you’ll find more iPad Pro cases.

Amazon – the best site to find alternatives for the original iPad case. There are currently 50 thousand iPad Pro cases offered on Amazon. It’s a good destination if you are looking for a more affordable case. You’ll find here leather sleeves, smart covers with Apple Pencil holder – in a much wider variety than in Apple’s online store.

eBay – when you’ll go through the branded cases on Amazon, you’ll find out that many covers have a quite similar construction, and differ only in colors. On eBay, you can find the similar cases. Most of them are unbranded, and that means you’ll be able to buy them for a lower – sometimes much lower – price.

Otterbox – the producer of the legendary Defender Series cases for several tablets and smartphones is now selling also the Rugged Daily Defence case for the iPad Pro 10.5. The version for the 2017 iPad Pro 12.9 is not available at the time of creating the post.

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.

1

Khomo Apple iPad 12.9 Carbon Fiber Case Cover - 2017 release

Khomo Apple iPad 12.9 Carbon Fiber Case Cover. Apple never offered the cases made from carbon fiber – and that’s too bad. Carbon fiber is a plastic reinforced with carbon fibers that are 5–10 micrometers in diameter.

The case made from carbon fiber is extremely tough and durable while being thinner than usual. Khomo offers the carbon fiber case for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. For the time being it’s only available in black. It features a built-in Apple Pen holder and is a perfect match for the Smart Keyboard. And look at the price. ⇢ Amazon – $22.99.

Poetic Slimline iPad Pro 12.9 2017 Case Cover

Poetic Slimline iPad Pro 12.9 (2017) Case Cover. A standard smart-cover-like case but with a twist.

First, the back shell is transparent, so that you can enjoy the view of your iPad all the time. Secondly, a part of the front cover is folded behind the back. It creates an interesting duo-tone being a result of choosing the color of the iPad itself and the front cover of the case.

You can choose one of seven available colors. Space Gray is shown above, but you can also check out Rose Gold or Navy Blue. Poetic offers the same design for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro. ⇢ Amazon – $16.99.

Fintie Stylish Stand Case for 10.5-inch iPad Pro

Fintie Stylish Stand Case for 10.5-inch iPad Pro. This stand case is one of its kind. It’s not a trifold design (like the Apple Smart Cover). It’s not a book-style folio stand. It offers as much as five viewing angles! Do you see characteristic grooves on the front cover? It’s how the stand is being fixed, using a set of magnets.

Thanks to this special design, the case is as lightweight as a trifold but works as a folio. What’s important, there is a place inside for an Apple Pencil. You can pick up one of the nine colors, including Navy, shown above. ⇢ Amazon – $13.99.

4

iVapo iPad Pro 10.5 Case with Built-in Apple Pencil

iVapo iPad Pro 10.5 Case with Built-in Apple Pencil Holder. If all you need is a smart alternative to Apple Smart cover, take a look at this design from iVapo. The case is wider than the iPad, isn’t it? It’s because it hides the holder for Apple Pen.

The pen will be perfectly safe hidden on the left side of the back shell and covered with a tri-fold front. Two holes behind the holder allow you to push the pencil out easily.

The case comes with a textured finish and is available in three executive colors: Charcoal, Navy Blue, and Brown Red. ⇢ Amazon – $24.99.

5

MoKo iPad Pro 10.5 2017 Shock Proof Stand Case

MoKo iPad Pro 10.5 2017 Shock Proof Stand Case. From our favorite third-party case distributor comes a stylish folio protector case. The ability to turn the case into a solid and stable stand makes it easier to type on the screen, so maybe the keyboard is not what you desperately need.

6

WWW Laser Flower iPad Pro 10.5 Stand Case

The case is available in three colors – all with a laser-cut flower design: Black (shown above), Gold, and Mint Green. There is also a similar case for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, but be careful and don’t choose the version for the 2015 model. ⇢ Amazon – $19.99.

8

Fintie 360-degree Rotating Stand for iPad Pro 10.5

Fintie 360-degree Rotating Stand for iPad Pro 10.5. Rotating stands give users a possibility to place the iPad in either a horizontal or portrait view. Therefore, they are much more flexible than any other kind of stand case.

The problem with rotating stands is that they usually look quite cheap. The 360-degree Stand Case from Fintie is an exception. It has a stylish look of a gray denim, combined with a stripe of brown leather on the front.

The case supports wake/sleep feature and comes with a built-in Apple Pencil holder and adapter slot. There are much more colors to choose from than Gray Denim shown above. ⇢ Amazon – $16.99.

Boncase Genuine Leather Sleeve for iPad Pro 10.5 or 12.9. This sleeve is made from oil tanned cow leather. It’s hand stitched in extremely durable saddle stitch with waxed thread.

  • that fits the iPad only,
  • that fits the iPad in a Smart Cover,
  • that fits the iPad in a Keyboard Case (it’s the default size for the iPad Pro models).

20

KuGi iPad Pro 10.5 Keyboard Stand Folio Case

KuGi iPad Pro 10.5 Keyboard Stand Folio Case. Do you want to use the keyboard occasionally? Maybe the $150 option is too expensive.
