We've rounded up the best cases out there so far for the 10.2in iPad right here. We will be adding more options as they become available, so stay tuned!

 

Apple Smart Cover for 10.2in iPad

Of course, the obvious place to start looking for a case is at Apple, which currently offers three case options for its newest iPad.

The cheapest of the lot is still a sturdy £55/$49 for the Smart Cover – "smart" because it automatically turns the screen on (or off) upon opening (or closing) the cover. There's also an option in leather for £75/US$69.

Bear in mind the case only protects the front of the iPad and leaves the back exposed, which may not be ideal if you're somewhat butterfingered.

 

Apple Smart Keyboard for 10.2in iPad

For even more functionality, Apple also has its Smart Keyboard Case, but at the cost of £159/US$159. The Smart Keyboard connects via the Smart Connector and effectively converts the iPad into a mini laptop.

Like the Smart Cover it only covers the front of the iPad though. The Smart Keyboard is compatible with the iPad Air 3 and the 10.5in iPad Pro.

 

MoKo 10-11in Tablet Sleeve

Moko is brand we've recommended before for our cases round ups. Its tablet sleeve fits up to 11in devices, which means the 10.2 in should fit comfortably with some additional room should you want to pop the Apple Pencil in there too.

It offers a separate pocket at the back for notes and a card slot as well. With its slim built you can slide the case into your backpack or laptop bag without any additional bulk. The cover closes with a magnetic flat, so you can rest assured everything will stay in place.

Available in black (£13.99/US$13.99) and brown (£14.99/US$15.99).

 

ProCase 10.2in Faux Leather Sleeve

Procase is another brand that make stylish accessories at affordable prices. The Wallet Sleeve is similar to Moko's case above but would over a more snug fit as it's designed specifically for tablets up to 10.2in in size.

We also like the stylish curved divet that helps you remove the tablet from the case. The Wallet Sleeve is available for £14.99/US$10.99

 

Tomtoc Portfolio Case for 10.2in iPad

If you find yourself higher up on the messy spectrum, the Tomtoc Portfolio Case is the ideal way to keep all your iPad and iPad gear stowed away neatly in one place. 

The case has designated straps and pockets to fasten your Apple Pencil, connectors, earphones, cards and more. There's also a mesh pocket where you can keep larger bits and bobs, like chargers and spare cables – with a space to keep an A5 notebook underneath.

The case fits tablets up to 11 inches in size and costs £26.99/US$30.99. There's a Lite version as well for £23.99/US$25.99.

 

Techgear iPad Executive Leather Folio

The Techgear Leather Folio is a stylish and sophisticated option for executives. You can keep your 10.2in iPad, business cards, notes and other essentials all in one place – there's even a pocket for your phone. It accommodates all tablet sizes from the 9.7in iPad to the 10.5in.

The Folio case also offers shock absorption, thanks to a soft bubble padded insulation that covers the back and front of the iPad. Available for £29.99 on Amazon (UK only).

 

Kizuna 10-11in Tablet Bag

Here's another carrying case option which zips close, which may offer relief to those looking to secure their new iPads with more than a flap. The Kizuna tablet sleeve bag accommodates the 9.7in iPad up to the 11in iPad Pro, so the 10.2in iPad should have no trouble fitting. 

The fabric is spill-resistant and is insulated with a shock absorbing foam. Plus a soft interior lining is sure to keep your 10.2 iPad safe from scuffs and scratches.

Available from Amazon for £10.99/US$12.99.
