The best iPad Pro case is surprisingly affordable these days, and crucially needed to help protect your large and expensive new tablet from the inevitable daily dirt, scratches, bumps, spills, and accidents that can happen around the home and office. 

If you have one of the best tablet cameras, then you'll want to ensure it's protected to the extreme. Every iPad generation will need a case to keep it scratch-free, and some cases are even designed to enhance productivity with flexible kickstands, and a handy slot to secure your Apple Pencil or iPad stylus

What sort of iPad case do I need?

Finding the best case for your iPad Pro is a breeze when you know what to look for, and we've made the hard work easier for you with this guide of our top picks from leading brands on the market. Firstly, do you have an iPad Pro? Which model?

The latest 5th-generation pro-grade iPad is available in two different sizes: the iPad Pro 12.9-inch, and the iPad Pro 11-inch, both released back in May 2021. The A model number can be found in small writing on the back of your iPad Pro to help you determine exactly which iPad generation you have.

There's nothing worse than purchasing an accessory to later discover that it doesn't fit your device. See our other guides to the best iPad Air cases, as well as the best iPad Mini cases, and not forgetting the best iPad keyboards too! Each iPad Pro model depending on the generation will have a different screen diameter, button layouts, access ports for charging, and camera unit sizes.

Speaking of cameras, if you're a photographer with one of the best iPads for photo editing, then you will definitely benefit from a case that can raise your tablet up high for a better view and keep it sturdy enough without obstructing the screen. You might also want a case that offers raised edges around the camera unit for added defense, and invest in one of the iPad screen protectors too!

Why you can trust Digital Camera World Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out how we test.

How we test

In all honesty, there's no real way to test an iPad case thoroughly enough without actually putting our own tablets in danger. So for this reason, we base our recommendations on things like case texture and grip, features such as kickstands and stylus slots, compatibility with MagSafe and Qi wireless functions, manufacturer reputation, and most of all - price range and value for money.

We weren't born yesterday, and we know that most manufacturers will exaggerate and upsell key features of cases knowing that you'll never test them. For example, some iPad cases might be listed with superior drop protection, but we aren't about to find out for ourselves whether that's true. With that in mind, we always take these things with a pinch of salt and give our honest opinions as best as we can.
