    Just wondering what will you be going for - smart cover, smart keyboard or sleeve?

    I always worry about scratching the back, seems theres nothing available to protect the back though?

    Seriously disappointed there is not a leather top to bottom case for this thing... like the Air 2 case.

    I am going to try the sleeve with the type cover. I rarely put my iPad down by itself so I am not worried about the back getting scratched.

    I used to upgrade iPad every year but have had an Air 2 for years now as it was the last to have the excellent leather smart case. - Apple you missed out on selling both iPads and cases because of the decision to discontinue them -

    Unfortunately, I use my iPad for work (JeppFD-Pro, a secure document container plus some other specialist apps) and my Air 2 is a little short on storage and speed now. Have ordered the new 10.5 Pro. I am not looking forward to having no leather smart case. The back is going to need protection and even if they make a silicon one, I really don't like them.

    I can't understand why they don't offer a leather case - all the effort that goes into designing the iPad and Apple don't think a decent case matters.

    Yes that would've been a total no brainer!

    I'm using a case by a German manufacturer named https://kavaj.de/ on my 12,9". It's pretty much like the original Apple one. Ok not entirely but very much like it. Will get one of theirs for the 10.5" when it's out.

    Of course not. Read the dimensions on Apple.com.

    I'm hoping to find a nice silicone/TPU case to put on the back. A skin would be OK except I believe the camera sticks out like the iPhone and I like to be able to set it down without it resting on the camera. Does Apple still have the smart cover but not the rear silicone case?

    I'm salty about this. All we have to choose from are cheapo third party cases/covers. Any suggestions for a good back cover from the vast selection on amazon?

    I'll be using the Smart Keyboard for the front cover. I'm also very disappointed Apple doesn't have a case for the back of the 10.5. I've used the silicon case on the back of a 9.7 iPad Pro and have been very happy with the protection it's offered while lugging my iPad around. I really don't like leaving the back naked because it makes much more noise when I lay the iPad on a table or solid surface - not to mention scratching it up.

    I hope Apple will release a case for the back soon.

    I want to match the Apple Leather Smart Cover with the Moko or Luvvitt TPU back cover, but both of them seem to have unknowns with regard to Smart Cover compatibility. I would much rather one of the great cases offered in the USA, but they are not feasible to order from Canada (shipping costs, mainly).

    Edit: Not anymore. Both companies messed their cases up and none of them fit properly. I will probably look elsewhere for a case.

    TechRadar review mentioned that the Apple sleeve fits the iPad Pro with Smart Cover on.
