    Solid case

    • Written by Black R from Wayne

    I’ve been using this case for about 3 months and it’s great. Let me start with the light weight form factor. It keeps the iPad as an easy to carry device with minimal change in size to foot print of the device. Super easy in and out of a sachet I use from Coach or I just carry it’s my daily device.

    I use my iPad primarily for meetings with the pencil so, protection is a must for my use case. The pencil stays nested and the clear back allows for the AppleDesign to maintain its presence while protecting the finish. Color and feel are also great in addition to adequate protection and the price is right.

    Worth the Expense

    • Written by Bruce R from Carrboro

    Definitely a premium cover. Well-Designed, Sturdy, and Good-Looking......I've been using the clear back and smart cover combination for a few years, and this is a perefect one-piece version. Feels good in the hand; looks good to the eye. .... Everything tight with the cover folded back for reading...Nice pencil holder....Keeps the screen clean .... The clear back looks cool and feels good .... Why is that Apple can't do the same?!

    Good case

    • Written by Wendy M from Suisun City

    I finally caved and purchased this case today at the apple store. Before this one I had purchased 2 generic kinds from amazon similar to this same design. Both were flawed where the 2 top corners were not holding onto the iPad (could be how heavy the device is, idk) so I read and watched good reviews on this. It is a perfect fit, nothings loose, magnets work great, love the pencil holder being encased as well. It doesn’t add to much more weight to the iPad, but I do especially love how thin it still feels while being well protected. I don’t think it is worth the $89 though. Was going to get a maxjoy or zugu case on amazon but didn’t want to deal with another return. I also wish that apple honored the vet/military discount in store, as they do online. Overall, I know my iPad will be protected and my search for a perfect case is over.

    This case does it all... much better than the Apple Smart Folio

    • Written by Johnna M from Winter Springs

    So... IMHO, the official Smart Folio for the 3rd gen 12.9 iPad Pro 2018 has a glaring problem. The back does not wrap up around the perimeter to protect the sides and corners. Using “the Apple Pencil needs to attach” excuse is no defense because the pencil only magnetizes on one long side leaving the other three sides and all four corners vulnerable to scratches and dents. I looked everywhere to find a better case, but each time I thought I found one, I had to give up a feature to gain the protection feature. Thankfully, this Otterbox case for the 12.9 iPad Pro 2018 has it all... no compromises. It’s back wraps up to cover three sides and four corners, leaving one long side for charging and storing the Apple Pencil. There is the usual sleep/wake and stand functions. In addition, there is a small flap/tab that wraps over the Apple Pencil when the case is closed, making sure the pencil doesn’t get accidentally knocked off. Plus, when the front cover is folded to the back, the small flap/tab folds back as well, keeping the cover in position so it doesn’t move around. Finally, the back is clear, so the Apple logo shows through. Yea! This cover is expensive, but so was my iPad Pro! Doesn’t make sense to skimp on the protection. Definitely recommend this case over the Apple Smart Folio.

    Amazing case

    • Written by RAMIN R from LOS ANGELES

    It fits very well, built quality is awesome, does not make your iPad bulky and more important than all it gives the iPad all around protection.
    I feel pretty comfortable and safe to take my device out now.

    Great case! What it should have been from the start.

    • Written by Daniel A from Calgary

    This is the case Apple should have created from the start. When using the smart folio I was always paranoid about bumping the unprotected sides of the iPad, this case offers the protection the iPad needs. Also the smart folio doesn't have a pencil holder so I always found my pencil slipping off and falling to the bottom of my backpack, as the magnets on the iPad are simply not good enough for transporting the device and pencil as it moves around. This case has a well thought out flap that will keep your pencil intact as you move it around, and it's the only case on the market at the moment that has this feature. I only wish the case came in more colour options (midnight blue anyone?). Well done otterbox!

    Exactly what I was waiting for

    • Written by David K from St Albans

    I have been putting off purchasing a case as the existing options hadn’t satisfied my demands. I wanted a case that protects 100% of the iPad, corners and sides included, whilst allowing for Apple Pencil charging and support. This is perfect.

    Better than the Apple Smart Folio!

    • Written by Alejandro S from Calgary

    Just received my order of OtterBox Symmetry Series 360 Case for my new 12.9-inch 2018 iPad Pro and I am so pleased with the quality of this case and with the fast delivery. It fits very well and protects all sides aside from the front and back. The transparent back shows the Apple logo making this product actually looks like more of an actual Apple brand than Apple Smart Folio and costs less. Highly recommended!

    Well thought out design.

    • Written by Jose A from Auburndale

    I purchased a Smart Folio for 12.9-inch iPad Pro (3rd Generation) first since there was no other option available. I was not comfortable with the lack of protection of the Smart Folio, so the minute the OtterBox Symmetry Series 360 Case came out I purchased it right away and return the Smart Folio. I am extremely happy with the OtterBox Symmetry Series 360 Case. Much more protection, it is very stylish. I highly recommend the OtterBox Symmetry Series 360 Case.

    Great protection beats the folio

    • Written by Diego L from San Benito

    I love how this product fits the iPad Pro precisely. The pencil holder is superb. The back cover is crystal clear so you can still see your beautiful apple logo surrounded in space gray (the color you should have). I only wish the case was easier to open with the pencil being attached. The case provides proper protection and is worth its price.

    Perfect for new iPad Pro

    • Written by Stella J from RHODES

    I had iPad Pro 1st Generation. To save money, I bought cygnet cover and used tempered glass protector. But 3 month later, I dropped from my desk to Carpet floor and screen got cracked. I could not fix screen since it costs $900. (So sad) I still use the iPad Pro as it is.

    For my nephew' new iPad Pro, I ordered this cover.
    The quality is excellent.
    Design also not bad( Colour ... no choice. Back is transparency. It is really Cool!!)
    Price... too high, but better than $900.

    I strongly recommend this product.

    A fantastic, and almost mandatory accessory

    • Written by Tony B from Orangevale

    This is an iPad case which offers excellent protection without needless bulk, and a great way to store the Apple Pencil securely while still allowing it to charge. The front cover and the small flap which helps hold the pencil in place, both stick to the iPad thanks to some strong magnets inside them, though it isn't difficult to open. The flap aside, while the front cover looks much like its predecessors of the Apple brand, it feels stiffer and somewhat stronger. The case itself which the iPad snaps into has a rubberized bumper perimeter which gives you edge drop protection, and the back of the case is a reasonably thick plastic, without being bulky. This adds a significant amount of stiffness to the iPad, preventing twisting, or bending of the device, and after a recent video of someone intentionally bending one of the new iPads in half surfaced, it is a much needed thing. The camera port is unobscured and operates fine, and overall it really does not make the device feel thick at all, especially thanks to the overall thinness of the new iPads themselves. If you plan on putting your iPad in a backpack, or honestly taking it with you anywhere at all, I would strongly recommend some sort of protective case, and I highly recommend this one. Often at release protective cases are few and far between and we have to settle for what is available, however in this, uh... case, that isn't the case. While this is one of the few that exist, it is a premium quality product that will not need replacing, and will offer your iPad substantial protection. Get it.
