      A bit tight but works well with Smart Cover / Smart keyboard

      Unlike most clear back covers this one has silicone bumpers around the edges to give your iPad Pro 10.5 more protection. The bumpers and the Apple Pencil holder Unlike most clear back covers this one has silicone bumpers around the edges to give your iPad Pro 10.5 more protection. The bumpers and the Apple Pencil holder add a little more bulk to the cover but it's not clunky. I found the case is a bit stiff which makes it a little harder to get on and get off your iPad Pro 10.5. Just take your time and follow the included diagram and you'll be set. I alternately use this back cover with a Smart Keyboard and a Smart Cover and it works great with both of these Apple accessories. The covers stay on and the magnetic flaps work perfectly and hold tight in open and close positions. All ports and buttons work as expected but as with any protective case that covers the buttons it does require a bit more force to actuate the buttons with the case in place. It's one of the tradeoffs you make for protecting your iPad Pro 10.5 investment with a back case.

      Good protection but does not fit the Smart Cover.

      Bought this because it had a place for the Apple Pencil. When combined with the leather Smart Cover, it does not lay even on the surface to type. Hard to acce Bought this because it had a place for the Apple Pencil. When combined with the leather Smart Cover, it does not lay even on the surface to type. Hard to access on and off button. Taking it back - too bulky!

      Very Happy with Symmetry Case

      I picked up one of these for my new IPad Pro 10.5. There's not a lot of selection right now for the 10.5, I used a Lifeproof NUUD on my IPad Air 2 for the last I picked up one of these for my new IPad Pro 10.5. There's not a lot of selection right now for the 10.5, I used a Lifeproof NUUD on my IPad Air 2 for the last 2 years and love that case, I like that the screen is open (don't like the built in screen protectors like the Otterbox Defender) and that its pretty thin and doesn't add a lot of bulk. That's what I love about the Symmetry Case, it's thin but thick enough to offer good protection for accidental drops. I haven't had any problems with compatibility for either the smart cover or smart keyboard. The only slight issue is that the Apple Pencil hits the case when plugged in and doesn't go all the way in the lightning port, but it does plug in enough to sync and charge. Overall I'm very happy with this case.

      Good at first but decays quickly

      This case was great for a month or two Then it started turning yellow. The plastic they are using clearly isn't durable. I've never had a case decay so fast. Af This case was great for a month or two Then it started turning yellow. The plastic they are using clearly isn't durable. I've never had a case decay so fast. After about 9 months of use, the silicone edges have detached; the plastic is completely yellow and awful to look at (people are surprised when I say it used to be a clear case). Cannot recommend this product.

      Not up to Otterbox standards

I loved that it was clear and you could see the b I have purchased many Otterbox cases for my iPhones and was so happy to find this protection for my iPad Pro. I loved that it was clear and you could see the back of the iPad. It also works well with the smart keyboard. Now for the cons: The back of the case is completely scratched and I rarely even take it out of my house. The place where the pencil goes (I don't have a pencil) completely broke off and has sharp edges. I should have returned it, but it was a little over a year old. This case is very pricey for the short time that it lasts.

      The pen holder breaks off and can cut you!

      I love Otterbox products and have been using them for years on my iPhones. At first I loved this product because it worked so well with my Apple Smart Keyboard I love Otterbox products and have been using them for years on my iPhones. At first I loved this product because it worked so well with my Apple Smart Keyboard and it had an apple pen holder. However, the Apple pen holder is a loop of elastic which can pull off breaking the thin plastic connection on the side of the case. This is the second time this has happened. I discovered it when my hand started bleeding! The first time they replaced it, however, now it’s time to try a new case.
