Having a hard time finding one that looks nice/doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Share what you use!
Sorry I don't have any suggestions, I'm using the arm and a leg version. Even though it was expensive I am liking the way it fits and feels. I figured it was good protection for the amount of money I spent on the iPad.
I use a transparent frosted back case by a company called MoKo. I like to be able to show the colour of the iPad in my case Rose Gold. It works well with the Apple Smart Keyboard.
Me too. Makes my 12.9 inch iPP look and feel like a million dollars. Although I would probably buy the case and keyboard again if Apple offered them in colors.
(OT: I miss Prince already.)
I bought the Moko frosted back for my 9.7 Pro
I have this one too. It works very well with the ASK. But Often I go with a very thin clear skin.
I just use a clear skin on mine, saves adding unnecessary weight and bulk while protecting against scratches.
I care not for damage from drops or bumps, that's what I have insurance for. Well, that and in all of my years since iPhone 3G and iPad 1 I've yet to damage one from a drop (and they do get dropped, too often )
If I were healthy I would probably skip the Apple silicon case, but my track history isn't great. Have a tendency to drop things and my iPad isn't immune - I dropped my very first iPad and saw it smash into a million pieces (go big or go home I guess - I dropped it on concrete). As my illness worsens the likelihood of me dropping it again is even higher and I might as well protect my investment for a little while at least.
It goes with me practically everywhere as I spend way too much time seeing medical specialists and I am left cooling my heels in far too many waiting rooms. So my iPad needs something to protect it as I tote it all over the place.
I also use the MoKo back case for my iPad.
Me too. I have the Apple case in mint green on the back with the keyboard case. Love it.
Matching dark gray Apple silicone case on my 9.7".
I have the same, am very happy with it.
Same here. Grey and grey. Love the look
Yeah, super sleek. Looks amazing on the Space Gray iPad.
I've preordered an Urban Armor case from various sites, hoping one comes up with a decent shipping time (before June) it allows access to the smart connector and has a pencil holder.
None, but if I had to it would be a clear skin.
what do you all think of this back case
I already have the apple silicone case but its so hard to press the volume control that Im thinking about returning the case and getting this one instead
I had it and gave it away. Nothing wrong with the case other than too bulky for me. I have an ultra thin clear TPU Luvvitt on my phone and absolutely love it. I was hoping this one would be the same. It is much bulkier and also lifted my screen protector. So "no go" for me.
That looks like a good one (though MoKo has a similar one on Amazon at half the price... I have that one). I notice that the one you linked attempts to offer some protection which means it is thicker and larger (they say there's an air-gap) than it needs to be.
It's difficult to tell from the photos, but sometimes that kind of plastic isn't as flexible as other types so if you plan on installing the back cover and leaving it on, it should be ok, but I wouldn't recommend regular installing and removing.
Oh so the screen protector does not work with this levvitt case? I am going to get the one that was being given away on amazon for free a while back(I havent ordered it yet) but will that screen protector work with the apple silicone case? is the levvitt case bulkier than the apple silicone case?
I can't compare the Luvvitt to the Apple silicone as I didn't get the silicone case. I have a really thin PET screen protector that the Luvvitt case edge lifted up.
I went ahead and ordered the case..the apple silicone case isnt working out for me the volume control is really hard to press so will give this new case a try..as far as the screen protector being lifted up, you mean it the edges of the protector dont stay put since the case is covering it? I figure the screen protector was free so worth a try
Same here. I've never understood the need to protect a big slab of metal with a big slab of plastic. A cheap skin protects from scratches and makes sure a thin and light iPad looks like a thin and light iPad. And these things just don't break as easily as people think.
But the new improperly cut Smart Cover may have finally conned me into buying one. The Smart Cover just "feels" wrong because the excess lip forces it to bend when carrying the iPad and the only solution seems to be... A big slab of plastic to add enough bulk to make the cover actually fit.
Apple wins $79.
Seems to be the way of things now though. I'd imagine the design meetings run along the lines of, yes I absolutely love it, well done it's the perfect product for our customers........
..... Maybe a bit too perfect, could you change it ever so slightly so that many of them feel the need to spend just a bit more money? That'd be great.
This is what I am using as well. It seems to be holding up well so far.
