    If so what brand and website did you use?
    Disappointed Apple have only covers for the screens and the Amazon wouldn't allow me to ship to Australia.

    Got this for the wife's new IPP 10.5:

    iPad Pro 10.5 Case, ESR Smart Case Trifold Stand with Auto Sleep Wake Function Microfiber Lining Hard Back Cover for Apple iPad Pro 10.5 inch(Champagne Gold) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071KTPQFJ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_b3ipzbQS5BA8N

    And I've preordered a ZuGu case, but they won't ship until August. The case above will tide her over until then.

    KeepCalmPeople pre ordered a ZuGu. They look like a reasonable case. Shipping to Oz is a killer for me though.

    Yeah they look really nice but they don't ship until August. If nothing else I'm hoping JB and Harvey Norman will have a bit of a selection when they get them in stock next week.

    Yes, I'm waiting to see what they look like in the "flesh" and initial impressions from purchasers to see if any gremlins show up. Just being cautious as this iPad is going to have to last awhile. The shipping for the ZuGu case by the way was around US$36 and kind of takes the edge of it.

    Wow thats a fair bit. If I can get a cheap one that will see me throughuntil November I will just buy one in the UK for probably half the price they rob you of out here.

    That's the style I've used on my iPad 3 since I've had it and found them to be quite suitable. I purchased mine, actually had two, via EBAY.

    I saw where some of you guys are using the power adapter from a mbp and a lightning to usb cable for your ipad to allow faster charging. I have ordered a 12.9" IPP and have a 2015 mbp so was interested. In looking at my 2015 mbp, the cable/magsafe end is directly attached (not plugged into) to the power plug end and no ports to plug anything else in. Am I missing something?

    No nothing. I didn't even know shipmate was a thing. How much postage did you have to pay them? Looks like it could be an option.

    The Moko case does not fit on the 10.5 iPad Pro. I just returned mine to Amazon.

    I'm waiting for somebody to rip off Apple's old cases that pair with the keyboard cover. I'm pretty pissed at Apple for hanging me out to dry with this iPad and no case option immediately available. I spend this much on a tablet and keyboard cover and you won't even sell me a case that works with it? Are you kidding me?? I know I'm going to end up cracking it. My boy just started pulling up on things a bunch while learning to walk and he's getting to be super grabby. I can just see him flinging my iPad off a table and shattering it. I'm going to have to be really careful until I can figure something out.

    I ordered and received the Moko clear back case for the iPP 10.5 and it fits beautifully and the price is right. I'm waiting for my Smart Keyboard to arrive.

    Theoretically, it should be $25 to ship from ShopMate to me, but they haven't confirmed yet.

    So the case should owe me ~$50 and arrive early next week. Not too bad, but arriving after I leave on a work trip, so I'll need to buy a cheap crappy universal case to tide me over.
