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

    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.

    Beautiful iPad broken bc of Tech 21 Poor Quailty

    Have had many problems with iPads in the past as far as the screen breaking. I made many of the classic mistakes. I had purchased the floppy magnetic cover but, only that for protection; would let my 3 year old watch a show on it and; have even learned the hard way that if you leave it in your freezing cold vehicle and bring it into your warm home the screen will break. Finally this year I purchased the 10.5 Pro AND got my daughter her own mini. I was quick to purchase protection for hers, the kids blue and green Tech 21. Although I did not purchase protection for mine immediately, I did buy it as soon as I could. She dropped her mini one day and I watch it bounce off of ceramic tile and not break. I had been trying to decide between the Tech 21 and Otterbox for mine (have had an Otterbox on my phone for over 3 years and my phone screen has never broken - our home has stained concrete floors). Bc of how well the Tech 21 protected my daughters mini I decided to purchase this one for mine. This iPad is always being treated like gold and always only in my hands, no one else. Big crack appeared on my screen a couple days ago and even bigger one today. I have replaced screens in the past with no problem. This happening just feels frustrating bc I took the proper measures to protect this iPad, I unfortunately laid my trust in Tech 21! DO NOT BUY THIS!!! Would give ZERO STARS if I could.

    Quality issues

    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.

    Good option now that Apple has discontinued similar products

    This product works. It also fits well and works with Apple’s keyboard cover. Detaching the included pencil holder is more difficult than it should be and the product is a bit expensive for what it is. Overall, a good but not great product.

    Wish I could return it

    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.

    One big flaw - after weeks of using it

    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.

    Exactly what I was looking for

    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.

    Great back cover

    I've used Tech21 cases in the past for my phones, so I know what great protection they provide. I'm glad this was available for my new iPad Pro 10.5. A little on the pricey? Yes, but well worth it.

    Not worth buying

    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.

    Best third party option out there.

    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.

    Excellent back cover for scratch and dent protection.

    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.

    Great choice for those waiting for the Apple Silicone Case

    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

    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.
