Apple Leather Sleeve for 10.5in iPad Pro
Along with a new size of iPad Pro, Apple has introduced this thoughtful case for those who don’t want the keyboard case but make use of the Apple Pencil.
The undoubtedly expensive leather sleeve is beautiful, with a lovely feel, quality stitching and a secure slot to store the otherwise highly lose-able Pencil. It’s available in black, blue, brown and taupe.
JETech Case Cover for iPad Pro 10.5in
A case can still be perfectly functional and not cost the earth. While you sacrifice build quality, this case from JETech covers all bases.
It can be used as a stand and offers screen and rear casing protection for the iPad. Not bad for under £20.
Apple Leather Smart Cover for 10.5in iPad Pro
If it’s a more traditional screen cover you’re after, this official leather smart cover could be fore you. Attaching magnetically to the left portrait side of the iPad, it auto wakes and snoozes the screen.
The familiar folding design allows for a triangular stand for video viewing or for raising off a surface to type or draw onto.
Logitech Slim Combo for 10.5in iPad Pro
There’s a distinct whiff of the Microsoft Surface Pro about this keyboard case from Logitech, as it uses an adjustable kickstand to keep the tablet in writing mode.
It’s bulkier than the Apple alternative but it’s cheaper (by some way) and has backlit keys. For many people, it’s preferable to the official version. It also offers full protection; Apple’s leaves the rear uncovered.
Be sure to pick the correct country keyboard layout.
Apple Smart Keyboard for 10.5in iPad Pro
This case is brilliantly multifunctional. It can be a stand or a screen cover when it is not performing its primary role as a keyboard case. We recommend trying out the keys in a store if possible before you buy though.
This is because the keys do not have normal travel, they are quite mushy (it’s hard to describe) as the case is coated with a wipe-clean material to keep it slim and durable.
There are alternatives, but you know with Apple that it’ll work flawlessly (we tested it; it does).
Make sure you choose between British and US English layouts.
ProCase stand case for iPad Pro 10.5in
If you miss Apple's all over Smart Cover then this is a good replacement. A single piece of material that covers the front and rear of the iPad when not in use, while the magnetic cover sleeps and wakes the iPad just likes Apple's cases do.
Use it as a stand for video watching or as a lift to type or draw onto the screen. It has full access to ports and the frosted back even allows the Apple logo on the iPad to shine through.
