    Knowing options are limited, anyone have brand suggestions for a clear back cover or skin they like? Looking for minimalist options but want the gold color to show hence looking for clear. The luvvitt case corners are not for me.

    My sentiments exactly. I'm looking for the same. I don't see any skins out there yet.

    Skinomi cutouts haven't been so great in the last few years. Would love to hear some reviews on this one.

    Oh great. That's not what I wants to hear.

    For example look at the one for the 12.9. It's a flat back one and a bunch of small pieces. Not a fan of that.

    tell me about it. I saw this woodgrain skin which would look great if it wrapped around, but those small cut out pieces look goofy. I may end up getting it and just applying the back piece.

    Right I noticed that. I know it's early so thought at least a certain brand could be recommended. I don't want or need drop protection. Just scratch protection.

    iCarbons also has skins for the iPad Pro 9.7. I usually use the skins from dbrand, but they are on the fence as to whether or not they are going to produce a iPP 9.7 skin. I ordered one from iCarbons for around $15. It's not clear, but that doesn't really bother me (as long as the Apple logo is exposed ).

    Thx, have you used these before? If so, glossy or matte?

    I definitely recommend www.stickerboy.net for skins. You can a simple one that's easy to install and covers 90% or go for coverage on the edges/corners that is more difficult to install. The cutouts have always been spot-on. Customer service is good too - they'll work with you if you have a minor adjustment request on an existing skin.

    As I said, I have the 6s+ skin in Matte. Matte is awesome

    I had one for my iPhone and it was like a sparkly matte. Hard to describe but not a flat matte.

    There's already five different vendors listed; one of which has eight types of skins that come in over 40 colors/textures. How many more options are you looking for?

    Just asking if anything new has come on line, didn't mean to clutter this thread up, back to my cave.

    I got my best skins ever and attempted an installation. I tried 2 skins but couldn't get either to look decent. I'm still looking for a super slim clear back case. I ordered and got the Luvvitt that is on Amazon. It fits nicely but is too heavy and bulky for my liking. And it also lifts my screen saver. I wish Luvvitt would come up with a super slim one like the one I have on my phone.

    Anyone found a thin TPU type back case compatible with the Smart Cover yet?

    This is disappointing that no one seems to be offering one right now.

    Yeah there seems to be nothing. There's a few hard plastic ones on Amazon but I would prefer softer plastic to be honest

    I have the best super thin clear case from Luvvitt for my iPhone. It is very lightweight and looks barely there. That's exactly what I want in a back cover. Not sure why any of the companies out there don't have anything coming yet.
