  • It depends upon the drop!

    It depends upon how the case lands!

    Drops from a low height will have have no effect.

    My wife's iPad was knocked off a bedside table (height about 80 cm) by a careless hospital orderly and the corner of the case broke away (presumably because it landed on that corner).

    HOWEVER . . . . the iPad was undamaged and that is the purpose of a case - to protect the iPad inside it (i.e. to a certain extent the case is sacrificial to preserve the integrity of the iPad).
