These are the Best Cases for the new iPad 9th Gen: ESR, Supcase, iBlason, and more!

Apple announced the affordable iPad 9th Gen during its California Streaming event in mid-September. It offers the same design and colors as last year’s model but has mightier internals. This iPad is perfect for students who don’t need the higher power of an iPad Pro, Air, or Mini. Whether you’re taking your iPad to school, work, or keeping it at home, it’s always a good idea to buy a case for it. iPads are delicate devices, and scratching or cracking them ruins their premium feel. So we have compiled for you a list of the best iPad 9 cases currently available.

Choosing a case for your new iPad can be tricky. Should you go for style, protection, or a bit of both? No case is perfect or complete; they each have their own pros and cons. You will have to settle for a bundle of strengths and weaknesses depending on your personal preferences and how often you drop or scratch your devices. You can also take into consideration whether you’re keeping it stably placed in your home office or moving it around and taking it outdoors. After all, you know what you need the best, but choose wisely.
