Apple Leather Sleeve for 10.5in iPad Pro

Apple Leather Sleeve for 10.5in iPad Pro

Apple's Leather Sleeve for the 10.5in iPad Pro is designed for those who don't want the keyboard case but make use of the Apple Pencil.

It's beautiful, with a lovely feel, quality stitching and a secure slot to store the otherwise highly lose-able Pencil, but it is undoubtedly expensive. It’s available in eight colours including black, two shades of blue, two shades of pink, brown, taupe and (PRODUCT)RED.

You can buy the Leather Sleeve from Apple here.

It’s also available for the larger iPad Pro 12.9in for £149/US$149.

JETech Case Cover for iPad Pro 10.5in

JETech Case Cover for iPad Pro 10.5in

Apple's case is lovely, but there are plenty of alternatives that don't have to break the bank. You will sacrifice some build quality, but if you're looking for cheap and cheerful protection for your iPad Pro 10.5in then a case like this one from JETech should do the trick.

It can be used as a stand and offers screen and rear casing protection for the iPad. Not bad for under £20/$20.

It's available from Amazon here.

Apple Leather Smart Cover for 10.5in iPad Pro

Apple Leather Smart Cover for 10.5in iPad Pro

If it’s a more traditional screen cover you’re after, this official Apple leather smart cover could be for 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. 

It's available from Apple here, and is also on sale for the 12.9in iPad Pro model here.

Apple Smart Keyboard for 10.5in iPad Pro

Apple Smart Keyboard for 10.5in iPad Pro

Apple's official Smart Keyboard for iPad Pro adds a physical keyboard to the already powerful tablet to make it one step closer to being a true laptop replacement. It can also be used as 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 as the case is coated with a wipe-clean material to keep it slim and durable. 

There are alternatives such as the one listed below, 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 to suit your needs.

The 12.9in iPad Pro keyboard can be found here.

Logitech Slim Combo for 10.5in iPad Pro

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.

As with Apple's keyboard case, be sure to pick the correct country keyboard layout for your region.

You can get the Logitech Slim Combo from Amazon here.

ProCase stand case for iPad Pro 10.5in

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.

It's really cheap, too, at under £15/$15.

Harber London Nomad Organiser for iPad Pro 10.5

Harber London Nomad Organiser for iPad Pro 10.5

This next option is definitely a luxury that not everyone will want to cough up the cash for, but we fell in love with it when it landed on our desk.

At £239, it's certainly not cheap, but there's no doubt that it is incredibly high quality and stylish. It can be used as an all-encompassing organiser, with space for your iPad in addition to clips and pockets for your phone, cards, pens, cables, keys, Apple Pencil, receipts and more.

For most people, it'll be enough to completely replace your bag, complete with a carry strap that can transform it into a backpack or messenger bag.

It's available in Tan, Black or Navy, and fits the iPad Pro 10.5 or the 9.7in iPad. You can buy it from Harber London here.
