If there is not one what is the top 5 or 10 please ?
for what ipad?
VERY expensive($90+, I think), but Apple's two parts look/work FABULOUS.
I got the Smart Case front in navy blue & the Smart Case back in white... looks hot.
For my iPad, I picked up the Urban Armor Gear folio case. Couldn't be more happy with it. Feels safe and durable but isn't bulky or unsightly.
If I had walked into the store and the Otterbox been out at that time, I probably would have gone with that but I'd have been disappointed hiding my iPad away inside a plastic fortress. This is the best of both worlds imo
Here's another pic of it hanging up on my fridge.... the magnets are strong enough to not worry & I often listen to music w/ a recipe app on screen! =D
I don't think I could bring myself to do that!
Lol, it freaked me out at 1st too; but I've been doing that for over three years (iPad Retina)... they've only gotten lighter.
Now I don't even think about it! =)
Ive lifted my lightweight iPad mini 4 by the Smart Cover and it couldn't lift the iPad plus silicone case. Maybe the larger models have more or stronger magnets.
I really like Speck Handyshell for my iPad Mini, its handle, which acts as stands, is perfect on both horizontal and vertical alignment. Unfortunately, there is no similar case in term of design for iPad Mini 4 at all!
This one is the perfect ipad case for me.
It really depends what your requirements are. Is you focus on protection, looks, feel, weight, etc.
Personally I like the folio look, despise any covering of the ipad front (bezels?) and weight is not too important.
I have an ipad pro (12). If I could get hold of them, I would go for one of the pad&quill offerings. Apple make some excellent cases, especially the smart keyboard option, but IMHO the lack of colour choice, price and UK keyboard option is a killer.
My favourite case at the moment is the Stilgut leather Couverture, in brown. It meets all my needs.
I liked the apple leather case for my old ipad air. For the IPP, I use pad and quill's oxford case.
As said, I can confirm how good the Apple silicone ones are (& smart cover if you want a complete protection). They are gripy, have a really decent lip on the front to protect your screen, the quality is amazing and it fits perfectly.
They are just so expensive, but once you've bought 'em you won't be worried to buy other cases.
For me, I want the most useful, flexible and lightweight option. What works for me is the ASK cover on the front and a matte skin on the back.
When my IPP travels outside the house it's in a zippered pouch along with the Pencil and my wireless earbuds.
That's what works best for me - so no case.
I think it depends on what you are looking for in a case. For me, I love the Zagg keyboard and case. It provides a lot of protection (my Grandson is using it as we speak so I want it protected) and I love having the keyboard.
Using the Zagg unit, it is almost the same as using my MBP, but smaller and I can take it with me easier.
I have the Sena folio case which provides good protection and the leather makes for an attractive case. However, there is an increase in weight and thickness. My preference is for the Apple smart cover and silicone case because the smart cover can be removed and the case provides corner protection, "grippy", thin and is light weight (it is as close to naked as you can get and still provide confidence in drop protection). Plus Ghost Armor screen protector and the iPad can be kept in good condition. I have a Thule sleeve also that use when carrying the iPad in my backpack.
The "best" of anything is like art. The answer of what is "best" lies in the eye of the person who is doing the looking. Or in this case, there person asking the question. People will often ask, "What is the best car?" Many might say a Rolls Royce or a Ferrari. But if you're on a construction site everyday, as fancy and nice as those cars are, they will not be best for you.
Not knowing what your priorities are or what constitutes "best" in your eyes, the nice and knowledgeable folks here on MacRumors Forum have done a pretty good job of offering up a nice cross sections of solutions that may meet your needs. One case or line of cases that has not been mentioned yet are these-
iPad Pro Cases
The company created the Apple specific case market so they know a thing or two about protecting Apple portables. Prices start around $30 but if you're looking for a top of the line, professional leather folio style case, no one makes one better. That model would get my vote and is the perfect answer your question, "What is the best iPad case?"
Worth a look.
Good luck in your search!
