Best iPad cases: The best cases for the 9.7in iPad – including the new 2018 model

Advertisement

With the arrival of the 2018 9.7in iPad, Apple’s iconic tablet is cheaper than ever. But an iPad is still a sizeable investment – and if you want to ensure your brand-new tablet remains in pristine, tip-top condition for years to come, you’re going to want to wrap it in a protective and durable iPad case.

Or maybe you have an existing iPad case that’s starting to look a bit worse for wear, and you fancy replacing it with a sharp new design – or something a bit more practical. Whatever your needs, we’ve rounded up the best iPad cases for you.

Just one point to be aware of: the cases we recommend below should fit the 2017 and 2018 9.7in iPads perfectly, but the older iPad Air 2 and the original iPad Air are slightly thinner. Most of these cases can be used with older models, but they might not fit quite as perfectly.

Best 9.7in iPad cases 

1. 9.7in iPad leather Mofred case

Price: £17 | Buy now from Amazon

Mofred’s dual-tone iPad cases are both beautiful and practical. The case features a flip stand that works in both portrait and landscape modes, a magnetic sleep-wake strip and six different classy tan colour combinations. The convenient front pocket seals the deal for one of our favourite iPad cases.

If you’re wondering, the colour options are black and tan; blue and tan; brown and tan; grey and tan; pink and tan; and purple and tan. For the price, it’s an absolute steal.

2. 9.7in iPad Cuvr case with Apple Pencil loop-holder

Price: £20 | Buy now from Amazon

Unusually, this 9.7in case features a double elastic loop holder for an Apple Pencil or a Logitech Crayon, making it ideal for new iPad owners looking to take advantage of the latest model’s support for stylus input.

The case comes in three colours – blue, tan and white – and has a desk stand as well as magnetic sleep-wake lock functionality. There’s also a magnetic clasp to protect the iPad when not in use.

3. 9.7in iPad Arteck slim folio case with Bluetooth keyboard

Price: £20 | Buy now from Amazon

Cases with built-in keyboards can be hit and miss, but this is one of the better ones – especially for the price. With a standard Mac keyboard layout, and slightly larger keys than usual, it’s surprisingly comfortable to type on; we prefer it to many more expensive iPad keyboards, including Logitech’s premium offerings.

In all, it does an agreeable job of making your iPad feel like a laptop. Just be aware that the hinge is quite restrictive, and doesn’t allow you to angle the display very far back.

4. 9.7in iPad Supcase Unicorn Beetle heavy duty case

Price: £25 | Buy now from Amazon

If you’re looking for heavy-duty protection, you can’t get better than Supcase’s Unicorn Beetle case. With a built-in screen protector and raised edges for extra drop protection, this solid piece of gear will safeguard your iPad from all types of damage. The built-in kickstand is handy too; the only trade-off is that it is, inevitably, quite weighty.

You can get the Supcase Unicorn Beetle in a range of dual-tone designs: we’re particularly fond of the pink/grey model, but other options include black on black; blue and black; gold and black; rose gold and grey; and white and grey.

5. 9.7in iPad Fintie 360 degrees rotating

Price: £15 | Buy now from Amazon

If you’re looking for a case to suit your personal style, Fintie’s huge range of designs will almost certainly have something for you: you can pick from Rough Sea, Galaxy, Denim Indigo, Ancient Map, Blossom, Bohemian Ledge, Jungle Night, Autumn Love and many, many more.

It’s a practical case, too, with a 360-degree rotating stand that lets you put your iPad in literally any position or configuration you like. It also comes with automatic sleep-wake lock – so it’s got all the essential features of an iPad case – and with a hard inside layer and soft leather exterior, it’ll keep your iPad safe from knocks and scratches.

6. 9.7in iPad Spigen Extreme Heavy Armor Shock-proof

Price: £15 | Buy now from Amazon

Folio-style covers aren’t for everyone; if you’re looking for a more solid, ultra-protective case. Spigen’s Heavy Armor is the perfect choice. Its dual-layer design combines shock absorbency with a hard exterior to prevent scratches and nicks; it’s both lightweight and easy to manage, and delivers a snug fit with perfect cut-outs for volume and lock buttons.

As befits its military-grade design, the Heavy Armor case comes in a choice of black and gunmetal colours – or a more tasteful rose gold.
