Accessories for iPad Pro 9.7

I'm looking for a non keyboard case... Single front and back as slim as possible. Will the iPad Air 2 cases fit?

I doubt so. New ipad pro has four speakers. Though the same dimensions with air 2, it is short of extra two holes for the speakers. Unless u dun mind having muffled sound.

Nope, cause iPad Pro has the camera that pops behind, even though the dimensions are the same as quoted in the Apple website.

Places like challenger do they sell ipad pro 9.7 cases already? I don't want the two-piece case from Apple. And I prefer the case to be as slim as possible.

I'm surprised too; that Apple didn't make the smart case for the ipad pro.

Probably, they think that people would buy the smart keyboard hence they sell the back and front cover separately.

苹果iPad pro9.7寸保护套休眠支架超薄ipadpro皮套防摔全包平板壳

Bought this from taobao world. I'm new to taobao and only bought a xiaomi air filter before this. But that first experience was very positive. The shipping was super fast - like I got it in 3-5 days - and the product is great. Let's hope this turns out ok.

it make no sense to make 1 piece of smart cover
because it will cover the keyboard area

it is to give you option to add in keyboard and also they dun need to make extra casing to sell

some third party that make 1 piece of smart cover but detachable front cover also
but i guess none as thin as apple for now..

and i heard the magnetic front cover is slightly different place now
so confirm cannot use Air 2 cover
- different camera
- different cut out for speaker top and bottom
- different magnetic on the front cover

from reviews, it seems that there are some 3rd party keyboard covers (albeit iPad Airs) with backlight and more shortcuts than the original Apple's keyboard...


i might wanna wait out and see what the 3rd party offers

whatever casing, camera that site is an opening hole what, no?
if dimension same then shud be able to fit.
casing thickness will eventually level woth the protruded camere

I don't intend to type on my iPad. Strangely I type faster on iPhone than iPad with virtual keypad. If I needed to compose something long I'd use the laptop.
