These are the best 12.9-inch iPad Pro 2021 cases: ESR, Logitech, Spigen, and more!

The new iPad Pro 12.9 is arguably the best tablet money can buy in 2021 with its insanely powerful M1 chip and the mini-LED screen. If you are spending over a thousand dollars getting this exciting iPad, it is a good idea to invest a bit more to get some protection for it. You can choose from a number of good cases that are available on the market with different levels of functionality and protection. To make your task of picking up a case easier, we have compiled some of the best iPad Pro 12.9 cases that you can buy right now.

It is important to note here that the 12.9-inch iPad Pro 2021 is 0.5mm thicker than the 2018 and 2020 versions. So if you’re upgrading from either of the iPad Pro models, your existing case will not offer the best fit. For other differences between the 2020 and 2021 models, our sister site PocketNow has published a detailed comparison of the iPad Pro 2021 vs iPad Pro 2020.

    Apple Smart Folio

    Designed by Apple

    The official Smart Folio by Apple is made from a single piece of polyurethane. It covers both front and back of the device, thus making it a far better choice than the Smart Cover that Apple offers for some iPads. Moreover, you can fold the cover to use it as a stand.
    ESR Matte Case

    Snug fit

    The ESR Matte Case is made of a flexible polymer with matte finish to keep the iPad Pro protected as well as free of fingerprint smudges. It sports a sleek design, thus avoiding unnecessary bulk. There is a built-in Apple Pencil holder as well.
    SUPCASE Unicorn Beetle Series Case

    Heavy duty protection

    The SUPCASE Unicorn Beetle Series Case comes with a multi-layered design to provide enhanced protection to your iPad Pro. It is made using polycarbonate and TPU, and includes a kickstand. Moreover, it can store the Apple Pencil.


    Spigen Tough Armor

    For ultimate protection

    The Spigen Tough Armor case comes with shock-absorbent layers as well as raised edges for the best drop protection. There is a built-in kickstand as well.

    Rugged but sleek

    Sporting a sleek design with carbon fiber detailing and shock-absorbent layers, the Spigen Rugged Armor is ready to take on the mishaps of everyday life.
    HBorna Clear Case

    Clear as day

    Made with premium thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) material, the HBorna clear case is thin and lightweight. This back cover is also easy to install and uninstall.
    OtterBox Symmetry Series

    High-end protection

    This OtterBox Symmetry Series case is a premium option for those who don’t shy away from spending big bucks for the peace of mind.
    ProCase slim case

    Matte finish

    The ProCase slim case for iPad Pro 12.9 comes with a hard back design and magnetic foldable cover for great protection. Moreover, it is the most affordable case of the lot.
    MoKo Smart Folio

    Slim and light

    Want something like the Apple Smart Folio but without the hefty price-tag? The MoKo Magnetic Smart Folio is a decent option at a fraction of the cost of the Apple offering.
    ZtotopCases Case

    With built-in screen protector

    The ZtotopCases’ full body protective case comes with solid polycarbonate backplate and flexible TPU lining to guard against accidental drops, bumps and impact.
    MoKo Case

    Protection with style

    Made from polyurethane (PU) leather, microfiber, polycarbonate and TPU, this stylish case offers plenty of protection against the chaos of life.
    Logitech Combo Touch

    A keyboard case

    Planning to get really productive with your new iPad, the Logitech Combo Touch is not only a decent case, it also packs a backlit keyboard and a large trackpad.

These are some of the best iPad Pro 12.9 cases on the market right now. If you are looking for a budget case that offers decent protection, the ESR Matte case is one of the better options. For some added protection, Spigen and SUPCASE have some great offerings. Folks who are willing to spend even more for a top-of-the-line case can go for the OtterBox case.

Given that the iPad Pro is way too powerful to be used just as a tablet, you may want to explore the Logitech Combo Touch case that comes with a built-in keyboard. The keyboard will help you take your productivity to the next level. There are other options from MoKo as well, including a case that looks stylish with its PU leather exterior. You can choose one based on your budget and preference.
