How does the size of the iPad 9.7 inch compare to the iPad Air and iPad Pro 9.7 inch?

I am looking at getting the new iPad 9.7 inch display but if I'm making that investment I want the protection of a Lifeproof case. Lifeproof has cases listed for the iPad Air as well as the iPad Pro 9.7 inch. Will either of these work for the regular iPad 9.7 inch?

    The new ipad 9.7 2017, is thicker than the ipad pro and the ipad air. apple advises to look for ipad 9.7 2017. the year denotes the 329 ipad. The apple website gives more differences, but I don't remember off hand what they are. I bought the "apple ipad 2017" & have to return a case that I purchased separately 'cause the ipad pro case doesn't fit. I just found out that you should look for a "ipad 2017" cover/case if you got the $329 model.
