Choose a Heavy-Duty Case
The leather cases that Apple makes for iPad are nice, but they don’t inspire a lot of confidence in the protection department. If you’re going to be using your iPad as a laptop, you’ll need something that can keep it safe as you transport it around. Look beyond Apple’s offerings to find a complete case for your Pro model that will help it deal with bumps, jostles, and frequent travel. We like the leather cases from Antbox and this rugged alternative from SupCase, but there are a lot of options out there to explore. Just make sure the case is designed to fit your specific iPad Pro size before you buy.
Note that many cases include stands or can be turned into a stand, which is clearly important for using your iPad Pro as a laptop. If the case you choose doesn’t have stand capabilities or you need a specific kind of stand, make sure you pick up one of those as well.
