    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.

    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.

    Design faults

    • Written by Jasper S from Newcastle Upon Tyne

    The case looks nice and fits the device well, however I had a couple of issues. The first was that the buttons on the device became unresponsive with the case on, so every time I wanted to use the volume or on/off switch I had to push down hard which doesn't seem right somehow, this should have been picked up in testing and a solution found to make the areas around the buttons more tactile. Secondly, the pencil holder attachment became loose and eventually just started slipping off by itself.

    6 months after purchasing it I had to return it to the Apple store for a refund mainly due to the pencil holder problem.

    It needs optimisation

    • Written by Davide Dom S from Oxford

    For a £60 plastic case I would have expected perfection instead with this case all the 3 buttons of my iPad are unsefull. The only way to use them are with a really unnatural super pression. Really disappointed.

    Solid design with a couple of flaws.

    • Written by Andrew Kyle C from Newton Abbot

    At first I thought this was a great case for the new look iPad Pro and the removable Apple Pencil holder works just fine. That being said I have to wholeheartedly agree with the comments regarding the issue of using the buttons. They, especially on the on/off button, really hurt your finger tips when trying to use them.

    I really wish that they had included a removable spine, such as the OtterBox Symmetry case does, to protect the Smart Connector when you aren’t using it for the Smart Keyboard. That being said I disliked the OtterBox’s fabric Built-in loop for your Apple Pencil as I felt it cheapened the design somewhat and when you’re paying £80 it was a compromise too far for me.

    An amalgamation of the two cases might have brought something close to perfection.

    However the one big issue with the Tech21 case surfaced during the last few months of use because the outer edges of the ‘BulletShield’ started to yellow. Annoyingly I only really noticed after 13-months and so I was unable to return it to Apple but in fairness to Tech21 they replaced under their Limited Lifetime Warranty.

    I have always used Tech21 and found the products to be well designed and capable to the challenges everyday can bring. I have dropped my iPad more than a few times the BulletShield lives up to its name.

    Great fitting poduct

    • Written by Kevin C from Preston

    Fits the new iPad Pro 10.5 perfectly,a little expensive,but you only get what you pay for,well done tech21 for another great product,best replacement I have found due to no Apple silicone case, good protection , good quality,ideal if you have the Smart Keyboard,and also easier to hold as not quit as slippy as the ipad itself.

    Exactly what I’ve been looking for

    • Written by Johnnie M from London

    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.
