The best iPad cases in 2022: Protect your iPad, iPad Air, iPad mini or iPad Pro

With the new iPad and iPad Pro models comes a new wave of anxieties around scratching or breaking them. A case is a must-buy, and we have picked the best options to keep your new tablet protected.

But these aren’t the only two tablets that Apple makes, of course! There is the iPad mini — a great small slab that packs stellar performance in a tiny package. And then, there’s the M1 iPad Air. Its specs may be very similar to the new iPad, but it packs second-generation Apple Pencil support and a stellar M1 chip.

We’ve scoured the internet and picked cases for all of them based on three things: aesthetics, durability, and value for money. After all, we don’t want to recommend some over-the-top monstrosity that makes your iPad virtually unusable.

Picking up an iPad? Here are the best deals. (opens in new tab)

As for that full keyboard/trackpad experience, we recommend you look towards Logitech’s Combo Touch, which offers all of this at a far more reasonable price than Apple’s pricey option.
