    I get excited when I see new cases here for my 10.5 iPad Pro then so disappointed when I realise they are not available here.

    I want to buy the ASK but won't do it until I can get good back protection. I cannot find anything available in the UK like the Khomo back case.

    Might have to modify my Jetech case if nothing turns up soon!

    I bought this as it was the only case I could find when I got my 10.5 just after launch.
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B071YMJVPM

    I then ordered this, and it got cancelled as they said they had discovered an issue with it.

    I then ordered this to try with my ASK and ASC, which should arrive today
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B071KB9DZ9

    I contacted ESR as i have this 9.7 case and they confirm a 10.5 version is on the way

    I really want the KHOMO back shell to launch over here.

    I originally brought the ESR (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Synthetic-Leather-Magnetic-Function-Launched/dp/B0718X3GJ5/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1499079752&sr=1-1-spons&keywords=ipad+pro+10.5"+esr&psc=1) as it was the only nice one available around the launch. It is a nice case, works well but cracked near the power button very quickly. They sent a replacement though.

    I then ordered a 'smart case' from eBay which took an age to turn up, but is actually extremely good (some pictures in the main case thread here https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/ipad-pro-10-5-cases-thread.2049281/page-20) and I'm still using this one.

    Whilst waiting for the smart case, I tried the JetTech, but didn't find the fit to be that great, the iPad could move up and down in the case and it didn't protect the top and bottom edges as well as the ESR. For now the smart case is my perfect case, but I don't have the ASK - instead I'm using the Logitech Keys To Go keyboard which is actually pretty good and only £30!

    I have an eBay smart case on the way. The Moko translucent back shell just arrived and it fits very well. Only negative is a slight misalignment of the speaker holes

    Can you post some pictures with the back shell and ASK? Thanks.

    Any particular shots you want, as it looks like an iPad with a keyboard attached.

    That's great thanks, just wanted to see roughly what the back cover looked like installed. Looks good!

    How do you carry the pencil around? I find it's way more important to have the pencil around at all times rather than the physical keyboard.

    I just use a separate Apple Pencil case (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Fintie-App...1499146004&sr=8-92&keywords=Apple+Pencil+case) then rend to carry the whole lot in a man bag. That way I can pick and choose what I want to carry depending upon ewjat I'm doing.

    Ah yeah... not for me. Currently I have a Surface Pen Loop on my Khomo smart case. I just need the ✏️ within reach at all times.

    I use a magnetic sleeve on the pencil and stick it to the ASC or ASK

    Hi John Lewis have the Targus cases in stock for the iPad Pro 10.5. Very well made and protect the whole iPad. Definitely recommended. Hope this helps :)
