OtterBox today announced the debut of new protective cases designed for the iPad Pro, the iPad mini 4, and the iPad Air 2. The Defender Series is being updated with cases for the iPad Pro, the Profile Series is being updated with cases for the iPad Air 2, and a new Symmetry Series Folio is available for the iPad mini 4.

The Defender Series for iPad Pro, priced at $129.95, includes a built-in screen protector to keep the tablet's display free from scratches, and like other cases in the Defender Series, its three-layer design protects the iPad from drops and dust. It also includes a shield stand for use when watching videos. Unique to the iPad Pro is a slot that holds the Apple Pencil.


OtterBox's Symmetry Series Folio for the iPad mini 4 is priced at $59.95 and offers full coverage with a protective back shell and a wrap-around faux leather or fabric cover. The Folio cover converts into a multi-position stand with 360-degree rotation for use in both landscape and portrait mode.


The Profile Series for the iPad Air 2 is an inexpensive, simple folio case that's priced at $49.95. It includes a protective rear shell that keeps the iPad Air 2 safe from drops and scratches, plus a wrap-around folio-style cover that doubles as a single-position stand.


OtterBox's new cases for Apple's iPad lineup are available from the OtterBox website and are currently discounted by 25 percent. Cases for the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 4 will ship by Christmas with free express shipping, but the iPad Pro Defender Series Case won't be in stock until January.

I loved my first OtterBox cover on my iPhone 4s. But my recent pricey cover on the 6s is a disaster. The built-in plastic screen protector is very reflective... the home button is covered and is not responsive every time for touchID... they've gone cheapo quality for mucho dinero. Adios!

Why even buy such a great looking device to cover it in a fat, chunky, plastic case? I will never understand it. Ever. Kids or not, don't let them touch your own device. It's that simple. Clumsy? Get a flip phone.

I don't get it either, but they sell like freaking hotcakes and are available pretty much anywhere.

I don't understand why 90% of iPad cases include a floppy unremoveable cover/stand. Those things just get in the way and make it cumbersome to hold the device while using it.
