ARTICLE – On Tuesday Apple announced their new 11″ iPad Pro and of course yours truly ordered one. To protect my investment, I need a new case. There aren’t a whole lot of choices out there yet but, I was able to find a few that I liked.

ProCase Slim

The ProCase Slim offers a thin translucent frosted back cover that allows you to see the Apple logo while protecting your iPad against fingerprints and scratches.

Precise cutouts allow full access to all features (buttons, speakers, cameras).

The tri-fold front cover can be used in viewing mode or typing mode. It also supports the iPad Pros auto Sleep/Wake feature. The soft scratch-free microfiber interior adds comfort and an additional layer of protection.

Price: $10.99
Buy from: Amazon

Pad & Quill Oxford Leather

When it comes to leather cases, it doesn’t get much better than Pad & Quill. The Oxford Leather folio case is no exception.

This ultimate professional case is crafted from a single piece of American Full-Grain Bridle leather. It features a slim profile and easily attaches to the iPad Pro using a residue-free 3M locking adhesive that can be removed and reattached multiple times.

The smart cover serves as a self-propping stand for horizontal viewing along with an internal document pocket. 

It’s also compatible with the Apple Keyboard Folio and Apple Pencil 2.

The Oxford Leather folio is available in two colors, Whiskey and Chestnut.

Price: $119.95
Buy From: Pad & Quill

Apple Smart Keyboard Folio

The Flagship case from Apple is designed to work perfectly with the iPad Pro. And the only keyboard case available right now.

The case allows for convenient viewing angles and has a full-sized keyboard when you need it. When you’re not using it, the keyboard provides protection for both the front and back of your iPad Pro.

The best part of the keyboard, there’s no charging or pairing required. Just attach the keyboard and start typing.

Price: $179
Buy From: Apple

There you have it 3 different cases for the new 11″  iPad Pro. A budget case, a leather case, and a keyboard case. All these cases are available right now, but if you prefer to wait I’m sure there will be plenty more choices in the months to come. Happy hunting!

  2. Why are there so few offerings for iPad Pro 11 inch keyboard cases? Or am I simply not looking in the right places? Any suggestions for where to look?

    1. David,
      I was surprised myself by the lack of keyboard cases. In my findings the only option right now is Apple’s offering. I do think that will change quickly in the next month or so. I would expect we will see offerings from companies like Logitech and Zagg. I’m afraid right now it’s just a waiting game.

      Good luck and happy hunting.

      1. I do not like the new Apple keyboard. It’s not backlit. It doesn’t have good a function keys. My Belkin model from my old iPad was awesome. I also like to enter text using the keyboard as well as the on-screen keyboard and you can’t do that function with the Apple keyboard. It’s very expensive and at $179 it’s not worth it. I hope the other manufacturers get on the bandwagon and produce a good keyboard soon.
