Best iPad Air 2 cases: Apple Smart Case

Price: £65 from Apple

First of all, it’s probably worth mentioning Apple’s own offering; the Apple Smart Case for iPad Air 2. The leather case is designed to protect the display and body of the 9.7in iPad Air 2, while also keeping it relatively smudge-free thanks to its microfiber lining on the inside of the case.

Best cases for iPad Air 2: Apple Smart Cover

Price: £29
Available from Amazon, John Lewis, Tesco and Ebay

If you're not too worried about the scratching the back of your iPad Air, or if you've already got a case that covers the back but not the front, then Apple's iPad Air 2 Smart Cover might be ideal. It's essentially the same as the Smart Case, but it attaches using a strong magnet and only covers the front of the iPad Air, still doubling as a stand, though.

Both the Smart Cover and the Smart Case automatically wake up your iPad when you lift the front flap, which is where the 'Smart' part comes in.

 

Best cases for iPad Air 2: Logi BLOK

Price: £99.99.
Where to buy: Logitech

The Logi BLOK is a fascinating cover for the iPad Air 2 because it boasts incredible protection, but doesn’t sacrifice design to do so. The case itself is comprised of a frame which protects your iPad along with a detachable keyboard, an any-angle stand and a screen cover. This makes it incredibly versatile – your iPad can be a laptop when you need it to be, and a tablet when convenient. Logi opted to make the corners of the case square to make it more shock absorbent, and the result is a case that should protect your iPad from a 6-foot drop onto concrete.

 

Best iPad Air 2 cases: RC 360

Price: £10
Where to buy: Amazon

The RC 360 iPad Air 2 Case allows you to fully protect your iPad Air 2 in style. Through the company's various number of different styles and patterns, the cases will give your iPad a unique more personal look and feel.

As an added bonus the cases come with a screen protector and even a free touch stylus.

 

Best cases for iPad Air 2: Belkin Qode Ultimate Keyboard Case

Price: £99.99
Where to buy: Amazon, Tesco, eBay and John Lewis

Do you spend lots of time using your iPad to type? The Belkin Qode Ultimate Keyboard Case for iPad Air 2 could be a beneficial investment. It comes with a QWERTY keyboard that includes dedicated iPad-specific shortcut keys to help make typing a breeze.

The case is made with aluminium, and covers both the front and back of the iPad Air 2. There's a built-in stand, and it's available to buy in white/silver or black.

 

Best cases for iPad Air 2: LifeProof nüüd

Price: £99.95
Where to buy: Apple

The LifeProof nuud case is for those of you that need a decent level of protection without wanting to compromise on the design of the iPad Air 2. Unlike other heavy duty cases, the water, dirt, snow and shockproof LifeProof nuud features screen-less technology, allowing direct access to your iPad display, allowing interaction to remain responsive. The case features an AR-coated optical glass lens for enhanced photography and the Sound Enhancement System should amplify your audio for a louder sound output.

 

Best cases for iPad Air 2: Nodus Access Case

Price: £99.99
Where to buy: Nodus

The Nodus Access case is a great option for those looking for something a little bit more up-market. Made from ‘fine vegetable tanned Italian leather’, the case will only become more aesthetically pleasing as it ages – like any fine leather would. It also features micro suction technology which will hold your iPad in place without the need for a frame, which allows the case to be thinner than other folios on the market. The best part is that it can be removed and repeated constantly with no residue left on your iPad, giving you complete freedom to use the case whenever you like.

 

Best cases for iPad Air 2: Maroo Woodland

Price: £34.99
Where to buy: Amazon.

The Maroo Woodland case for the iPad Air 2 utilises a clean, minimalistic design with a blend of synthetic leather and dark woolenfelt. Maroo’s patented SG Bumper Technology will protect your iPad Air 2 from damage and still allow you to change it out within seconds, unlike other protective cases that you have to wrestle to take off. It also offers two different viewing angles – a low angle prop for a comfortable typing experience as well as an upright stand for watching movies and video clips. Style and substance!

 

Best cases for iPad Air 2: Brydge Air

Price: $149.99 (around £100)
Where to buy: Brydge

The Brydge Air is one of our favourite keyboard cases available for the iPad Air 2, and effectively turns your iPad Air 2 into a MacBook. The keyboard case is crafted from the same material as your iPad to make the case look like an extension of the iPad itself, instead of two different products. It’s similar in design to the keyboard of the MacBook, and also features backlit keys for working in dark environments. The hinges provide a 180 degrees viewing experience, allowing you to find the perfect angle.

 

Best cases for iPad Air 2: Griffin Survivor

Price: £49.99
Where to buy: Mobile Fun

The Griffin Survivor All-Terrain tough case does what it says on the tin – it’ll protect your iPad in a variety of ways.

The iPad sits in a shatter-resistant polycarbonate frame covered with shock absorbing silicon, and can protect the iPad from a 1.8m drop. It also features a built-in viewing stand, ideal for watching movies or FaceTime-ing your friends.

Not everybody wants an in-your-face iPad case though; and for those people, we present the Olixar FlexiShield gel case for the iPad Air 2. Thinner than others in our roundup, the FlexiShield allows users to retain the slim form factor of the iPad while providing it with an additional level of protection. The raised bezel on the front of the case should slightly elevate the iPad display, avoiding direct contact with any surfaces – providing protection from scratches and dirt.

The case comes packing multi-angle screen technology, making it a very versatile case that would suit the fashion conscious as well as professionals. The iPad Air 2 clips into a plastic cradle within the case, which should help to protect all sides and corners and its micro-fibre lining should keep the device scratch free.

It also has built in magnets for magnetic closure, as well as built in auto sleep/wake function and two slots for credit cards.

 

Best cases for iPad Air 2: Greenwich leather cases

Price: from £100
Where to buy: Greenwich

For a true touch of luxury, look no further than these leather iPad Air 2 cases from Greenwich. All the cases are handcrafted from bullhide leather and when you order, like with a new iPad, you can get a free personalised engraving.

Some designs are even stamped with actual wax, for that Tudor-esque reassurance of quality we're all striving for. The Meridien sleeve is £100 and looks great, but you can also opt for a folio case style or a folio stand. A great way to protect your device and compliment its premium quality.
