These are the Best 12.9-inch iPad Pro 2021 Cases in August: Spigen, UAG, 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’re spending over a thousand dollars getting this exciting iPad, it’s 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’ve compiled some of the best iPad Pro 12.9 cases you can buy right now.

It’s important to note 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 the 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 has 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's made using polycarbonate and TPU, and includes a kickstand. Moreover, it can store the Apple Pencil.

    i-Blason Cosmo Case

    Full-body protection

    The i-Blason Cosmo Case for the iPad Pro 12.9 is made of TPU and synthetic leather. It not only protects the back of the iPad but also safeguards the display using its foldable front cover. The foldable cover can also act as a kickstand for the tablet.

    Ringke Fusion Plus

    Crystal Clear

    The Ringke Fusion Plus case comes with a Double Air Pocket technology frame that promises to provide twice the protection than regular cases. It's made of TPU, and includes an Apple Pencil holder. Moreover, there are lanyard holes to attach hand or neck straps.
    UAG Metropolis Case

    Slim and lightweight

    The UAG Metropolis Case for the iPad Pro 12.9 features a lightweight and slim construction but it still exceeds the military-grade standards for drop and shock protection. The case also has a proprietary grip material for secure handling.
    Spigen Rugged Armor

    Rugged but sleek

    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.
    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 peace of mind.
    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.
    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

    If you're 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.
    ProCase Smart Cover

    With stand function

    The ProCase Smart Cover for the iPad Pro 12.9 features a translucent frosted back shell and a magnetic smart cover to safeguard your tablet. The smart cover can also double as a stand so you can enjoy videos hands-free. It comes in four color options.
    Spigen Liquid Air Folio

    Screen protection

    Apart from its sturdy Tough Armor and Rugged Armor cases, Spigen also offers the Liquid Air Folio case for the iPad Pro. It's similar to the ProCase offering and comes with a back shell and magnetic foldable screen cover. The foldable cover can also act as a stand.
    Speck BalanceFolio

    Great drop protection

    Speck produces quality cases for phones and tablets, and this BalanceFolio for the iPad Pro 12.9 is no different. It can protect against scratches, drops, and dents. Multiple labs have tested the case for its excellent drop protection.

These are some of the best iPad Pro 12.9 cases on the market right now. If you’re 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 also have great offerings. Folks who are willing to spend even more for a top-of-the-line case can go for the OtterBox case.

Given 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.

    Apple iPad Pro 2021 12.9-inch
    The new 12.9-inch iPad Pro comes with a mini-LED equipped display along with the mighty powerful M1 chipset, up to 2TB of storage, optional 5G, and Thunderbolt support.
