Will the new iPad 9.7" (2017 ver.) fit properly in any other iPad cases without causing and problems?
So I just ordered one of the new (horrifically ill-named) 9.7" iPads, and am now kind of regretting it because it seems like it'll be kind of difficult to find a decent case. I am aware of Apple's "cover," but it is exactly the kind of case I do not want--thin, flimsy, with no rigid frame.
So there are a few third party cases on Amazon and elsewhere for the new 9.7" I could fall back on, but some of the more appealing cases are for other models. For example, would the regular 9.7" iPad fit inside a case for the 9.7" iPad Pro--without the plastic frame covering up any important ports or speakers, while still being able to use the magnetic thingamajig to wake/sleep the tablet?

I had the iPad Air and the smart cover, I Just traded my Air for the new 2017 iPad. To my surprise, the old Air smart cover fits/works perfectly for the new iPad.
So don't worry if you had the 1st Gen iPad Air smart cover it will fit with this new 2017 iPad

I just received one today that I ordered online. It is by Fintie. It comes in a multitude of colors and designs, fits perfectly and has the sleep/wake feature. I love it. It said it was for new iPad 2017. Inexpensive too.

I had the same issue as well!
'Had to return two cover/keyboards that I purchased back.
Unfortunately no any other cover will fit the Ipad 9.7 - make sure you will not buy the Pro or the Air covers, since the width and the depth is different.
