    Great product

    • Written by Theresa R from London

    I have tried three different cases for my new 12.9-inch iPad Pro 2nd generation ranging in price from 100 to over 200 dollars. All of them were cumbersome or did not fit properly. I saw this case online and decided to check it out at the Apple store. It Is a nice slim case. It fits perfectly to my iPad and the box it came in clearly indicated for 2nd generation. I have paired it with the Apple Smart Cover (which like the old cases are great) and I am very happy with them. Looks great and functions as I need them. It also has a holder for my pencil and keeps it nice and snug and ready to use. Although I do miss the whole silicone smart case that Apple had for my old iPad I am extremely satisfied with this combination purchase.

    How could it be better?

    • Written by Doug E from Box Elder

    I really don’t know. It is perfect. I own a 12.9 2nd Gen Pro, and I watched many YouTube videos trying to find the best Hybrid Case for it. None of those videos showcased the Tech21. So, I was on the edge when it came to buying a Hybrid Case nobody talked about. Finally, I bought it because I was 3 miles from an Apple Store. I thought, if it is bad quality I can return it without shipping hassles.
    Well, I won’t return this case. It is nice. It fits the 2nd Gen Pro so well you would think Tech21 was working hand in hand with Apple.
    Personally, I use and appreciate the Pencil holder. You can take it off if you don’t want it. I can’t tell you what that is like because I leave it on. The Smart Keyboard is a perfect match for this case. The Pro and the keyboard will fold, connect and make their shapes while the case protects. It’s simple.
    The button used to contact the Pro buttons are raised and firm. Very nice. The cutouts are were they should be. Very nice.
    Something else I benefit from is the box the Tech21 Case came in. It’s a sturdy box with a drawer on the side. You open the drawer to reveal the case within. It just so happens that you can assemble the case to the Pro along with the Smart Keyboard and your iPad will fit in this box! How cool is that?

    Better and cheaper than the ottterbox.

    • Written by Eddie L from Seattle

    Originally purchased the otter box and returned it for this case. It is much better in my opinion....cheaper, slimmer, better feel on the back of the iPad. The pencil holder isn’t as nice and secure as the otter box’s. My favorite thing about this case is the slimness that allows me to have the case on and still fit in the $16 leather procase sleeve case from amazon if you snap the pencil holder off. I couldn’t do that with the otter box, which added material around the iPad and made the iPad thicker. I have a 2nd gen iPad Pro and haven’t had issues even though the tech21 website says this is only compatible with the first gen iPad.

    Perfect case storage solution for 2nd Generation 12.9" iPad Pro!

    • Written by Omar B from Dublin

    I hadn't noticed until just prior to initiating purchase transaction of my new 12.9" iPad Pro that the prior model's Apple Case that I had been using was not going to work on the 2nd Gen. iPad Pro due to it completely blocking an updated flash addition that Apple added adjacent to the camera location on 2nd Gen. models. Though I almost never use the built-in camera on an iPad this size to take photos (I have an iPhone which is much more convenient for that purpose), I still wanted to have the option available, just in case. For lack of better selection at my local Best Buy store, I tried out Under Armor Gear's Metropolis iPad Pro (2nd Gen.) Case, but, was almost immediately disappointed because it did not snap into place well, and, besides it was way too much hassle having to disassemble a part of that case just to be able to use my Apple Smart Keyboard. So, I returned that UAG case and decided to start shopping around online at Apple.com for case storage solutions that were compatible with both this 2nd Gen. 12.9" iPad Pro and my Smart Keyboard. What completely makes no sense to me is why Apple would create and sell a case for the 1st Gen. model but not for the 2nd Gen. - especially given the aforementioned hardware addition. Epic fail Apple! Nevertheless, I appreciate the thoughtfulness of the gentleman who was the only one to write a review prior concerning this Tech21 Clear Case. For lack of a better word, it is perfect! It perfectly pairs with both my 2nd Gen. iPad Pro and my Smart Keyboard. Unlike the UAG, it locks perfectly into the same angled position as I've been accustomed to for the past couple years flawlessly connecting with my Smart Keyboard exactly like my previous Apple Case would. Visually, Tech 21's Clear Case is absolutely stunning and clearly showcases the beauty of my iPad Pro for all the world to see from behind. I almost never have dropped any of my Apple devices (and, I've been a loyal Apple customer for 20 years) because, let's face it, everything Apple sells is too darn expensive to be careless and drop. I certainly don't plan on dropping my new baby; though, mistakes can and do happen to even the best of us; thus, the need for some sort of protection. Based on the sales advertisement I read, I'll have to take Tech21's word at face value and believe that it will protect to a reasonable extent the rear of my iPad Pro. Certainly, I can vouch firsthand for the look and feel of solid durability that this Tech 21 Case provides. And, the major plus is the added protection for my Apple Pen which makes it finally convenient for me to carry Pen and iPad together. I'm writing this review to pay it forward in hopes that it helps anyone interested searching for a case solution for their 2nd Gen. 12.9" iPad Pro make the best buying decision given the few commercial solutions currently available on the market.

    Tech21 FTW!

    • Written by Elliot D from WHITE PLAINS

    I had hoped there would be a solution to protecting the back of the iPad Pro given the fact that Apple chose to not develop their own back plate this year. When I noticed Tech21 did I immediately was sold. They have been my go to for protecting my iPhone for years. The Impact Clear Case is another win for them. It's totally compatible with the Smart Keyboard, and even has its own pencil holder which is detachable. I would seriously recommend this to anyone looking to protect the amazing finish of the iPad.
