The Apple iPad Case: A Guide to the Accessories Available to Protect Your iPad

When it comes to the most popular accessories for the iPad, the Apple iPad case comes out on top. Since the iPad was released, hundreds of independent manufacturers have come up with artistic, bold, functional, and protective designs of cases to protect your expensive gadget. Here’s a quick guide to the various types available and why you might need them.

Why Buy An Apple iPad Case At All?

You’ve probably heard a lot of different things regarding how durable the iPad really is. Although some will say that the glass screen can’t be scratched, put it in your bag next to your keys and you’ll soon see that it can. Although it’s true that the iPad is pretty durable, considering you’re going to be carrying it around with you, it’s important that you can keep it protected when you do so.

iPad Screen Protectors

Although iPad screen protectors help to protect against scratches, they are less a case and more a simple protective layer that you stick over the screen of the iPad. These are available from a huge number of manufacturers and are the simplest way to keep your screen free of scratches. The good news is that the protective screen is invisible if you take time to stick it on in the right position. These won’t do anything to protect against bumps and falls.

iPad Sleeves

Sleeves are generally made from thin material, designed for you to slip your iPad inside to protect it against scratches while carrying it around. This performs a similar function to the screen protector, while protecting the whole of the iPad body. They won’t protect against bumps unless they’re padded.

iPad Skins

This kind of Apple iPad case simply wraps around the sides and back of the iPad, and is popularly used as a way to make it look more personal and unique. Skins are generally made of silicone, and as such add a little extra padding, as well as great protection against dust and dirt. Although skins look great, it’s unlikely that they will protect against drops.

Soft Cases

One of the most popular types of Apple iPad case is the soft, full case. These cases are generally designed with layers of padding, and enclose the whole of your iPad. They will allow you to reach all of the buttons and functions easily, and generally open and close to protect your screen when you’re not using it.

Hard Cases

For those who want even more protection, hard iPad cases are available in a number of styles and materials. Hard leather cases are designed for maximum protection with a formal look.

iPad Bags

Lastly, you can also choose an iPad bag to carry around your device. The best iPad bags come with a number of other pockets for anything else you might need to carry around, and you can also get them in briefcase form.

The Apple iPad case you choose will depend on the level of protection you need (with full cases and bags generally giving the most) as well as the designs you prefer. The good news is that practically all of these cases mentioned come in a huge range of designs to suit all tastes
