    Great choice for those waiting for the Apple Silicone Case

    • Written by Hubert C from Brea

    I have both the 9.7-in and 10.5-in iPad Pros. Like many coming from the 9.7-in iPad Pro, I've been searching far and wide for a case that closely matches the Apple Silicone Case that didn't get made for the 10.5-in iPad Pro. Purchased multiple ones from Amazon that just didn't make the cut in terms of quality... I couldn't trust my new iPad Pro to be protected until now. This one is the best out there for the 10.5-in iPad Pro. It's thicker and wraps around the edges more than the Apple Silicone Case comparatively. The material is a comfortable balance in between hard plastic and soft TPU. This combination makes the case feel solid without adding excessive bulk or weight. The Apple Pencil holder can detach when it isn't needed. The Apple Smart Keyboard works with this case but the edge is shy of the case when closed. Not a deal breaker to me but for some, this case might seem a little too thick. My search for a case is over. Good luck to all of you searching for an Apple Silicone Case alternative for the 10.5-in iPad Pro!

    Decent case that is Smart Keyboard compatible

    • Written by James C from Powell

    I am used to Apple's Silicone back case that I used with a Smart Keyboard to keep my 9.7 iPad Pro in good shape for a year. I was disappointed that Apple isn't offering the back case for the 10.5 iPad Pro. I didn't want a pouch or a front case. I was just after a setup like I had for my 9.7. There were no offerings for weeks so I was elated to find this at my Apple Store. I bought it thinking it would provide some protection while I waited for a better alternative. It turns out that I love this case and am no longer looking for an alternative. It is light, relatively speaking, seems to provide good protection, fits the iPad as if Apple built it, and even has a built in holder for the Apple Pencil. My Apple Silicone case was wearing out after a year of use, perhaps that's why they no longer offer them. Anyway, this seems better built and it has a lifetime warranty. Luckily, I found it before I damaged my new 10.5.

    Excellent back cover for scratch and dent protection.

    • Written by Shawn T from Coon Rapids

    I'll start by saying that this is compatible with the 10.5" Smart Keyboard. This case is very thin, more so than the Silicone back cover from last year. The edges of the case are made out of a TPU material and the back of it is thin plastic. I also like that the Apple Pencil holder is removable.

    Best third party option out there.

    • Written by Chris D from Carpentersville

    I'm very frustrated that Apple has chosen to stop making the Silicone Case for iPads--nothing on the market ever compared to those as far as fit and finish, and I am always willing to pay the premium price to have one on my iPad.

    However, after buying and returning a lot of third party options on Amazon for my 10.5" iPad Pro, this case ended up being the winner. The claims made on the packaging are true--it fits perfectly, it is fingerprint resistant, and the material it's made out of feels really nice in the hand. I also like the fact that the Pencil holder is detachable. I usually like to keep my Apple Pencil in a separate case or in a stand on my desk, but I like that it's an option on this case to stick it on the side of the iPad too.

    Is this case a little too pricey? Yeah, probably. But it definitely feels like a premium case, and I have no regrets.

    One big flaw - after weeks of using it

    • Written by Paul V from New York

    I have tried to like this and, in most respects, it's a good case that does the job. The flaw? The on/off switch is so difficult to push through this cover that it has become a painful experience that I dread. I'm going to revert to another one that does not have the pencil holder, unfortunately, but that also works really easily, the way the old Apple silicon ones did. I really tried to make this work, but it's a hassle.

    Great Case but you will lose your Apple Pencil

    • Written by Jeremy R from Spokane

    Great case when paired with a smart cover. The pencil holder that comes with it is a bad design. I haven't had the actual holder come off, but even when fully attached it does a poor job of holding onto the pencil. I used it for about three months and the pencil simply fell out of the grip on numerous occasions. Finally this weekend, my apple pencil fell out somewhere along the way at an airport never to be seen again. This is a five star case if you have no need for an apple pencil and also purchase a smart cover. I will likely buy a new case from a different company along with my replacement apple pencil. The pencil is just too expensive to have such an undependable grip holding it.

    iPad Pro on off switch

    • Written by Attilio P from Surbiton

    This is a well-made case and the pencil holder is great but unfortunately it’s almost unusable.
    You cannot control the iPads Pro on/off button through the case.
    This is a very poor design and is very disappointing it’s not worth £60 if you’re looking for a case I would avoid this one.

    Wish I could return it

    • Written by Andrea A from FPO

    I started hating it as soon as the pen holder attachment started coming off with the slightest touch. That is extremely annoying and irritating for the price this is being sold for. Not worth it, don’t spend your money on this.

    Not worth buying

    • Written by Carol D from Melrose

    This is hard and not comfortable to hold when on the iPad. The Silicone back was much better and softer to hold. Why didn't they come back with the Silicone back?? I returned the plastic one and also the 10.5 iPad. I think you need a back on the iPad and the plastic one is not for me so I will not take a chance with a new iPad until they come out with covers that are better than what they are offering now. I have not found different one that anyone is offering yet to make it worth buying. Apple comes out with better iPads but not better covers to go with them.

    Exactly what I was looking for

    • Written by STIRLING C from Melbourne

    I had purchased the Smart Cover, thinking that I wouldn't be taking the iPad out of the house very often—then the iPad Pro became almost indispensable—and I wanted to bring it out with me more often; and have somewhere to stash the Pencil too...

    Doesn't add much weight at all, or noticeable weight, or size.. good protection from bumps Or rough surfaces, there is only ONE drawback that I have noticed; when you have the back case on the iPad you are not able to charge the Apple Pencil /That Way/, the bottom port protection stops you from inserting the pencil fully—for me this isn't a dealbreaker, but for some it may be—I have charged the pencil before in this "worst" way a few times ever after the initial pairing.

    I'd recommend the Smart Cover + impact Clear Case over the Smart Case as you get a pencil holder and can wear either front protection or back as needed.

    What a fantastic case, I’ve been looking for one of these since I’m worried about the rear of the iPad. It fits fantastically well and has a very cool Apple Pencil holder, great product.

    Great ipad protection, but you may loose pencil.

    • Written by Audrey C from Bentonville

    The quality was better than I expected. I particularly purchased this case to keep my Apple Pencil attached. 2 months after I had it I realized the holder can unattach, eventually knocking off and becoming looser over time. Sadly I lost my Apple Pencil at a convention this weekend because of this. Still deavastated it’s gone. I always check and stay cautious of it, but this case failed to actually keep the pen holder attached. I understand use over time but I have only had it for 4 months and do not use it daily. I don’t think I should have had to worry about that. My pencil was used for sketching designs for my small business. I will be searching for a better product that does not have a detachment when I can get a replacement.

    Quality issues

    • Written by ROBERT C from WETHERSFIELD

    Purchased an iPad Pro, 10.5, also purchased this case after reading a few reviews and watching a few YouTube vids. Very unhappy with the case. Buttons very stiff, could not get the iPad to shut off nor use the volume buttons for same reason. Quality control at manufacturer level appears to be lacking.
    My advice, if considering this case is to bring your iPad with you and fit it on tablet. Try buttons then make decision as to wether to purchase product.

    pencil falls out

    • Written by Susanna P from Cincinnati

    This case will not hold the pencil tightly - it's more of just a resting place for the pencil. I expected to be able to store the pencil there when not in use. Returning.

    Okay, but poorly lined up with on/off button.

    • Written by Debra P from Bethesda

    I received a new 10.5 inch iPad Pro and accessories for Christmas from my husband.

    I picked out this case as it seemed the best option for me. The case fits nice and snug, with empty space on left side for application of a hinged magnetic cover. Together the case and cover do their job and protect my new iPad.

    My only negative is that I’m finding that I have to repeatedly press the on/off button as the case location for this button isn’t aligned properly. Frustrating!

    Wishing Apple would make a combo case with attached cover like I had for my previous iPad:(

    Great protection on the back side and is compatible with the apple keyboard. The only complaint I have is that the apple pen can get knocked out of the pen holder pretty easily. This case is much better than it's competitors tho.

    Buy another case.

    • Written by Tony N from Leven

    Very hard to use the iPad through the case, the on button particularly hard to operate. The iPad fell a short distance from the arm of my chair onto a carpeted floor and ended up with a dent in the metal case around the speaker grill.

    Hard to use and offers little protection.
