2018 iPad Pro 12.9”/11” Accessories Thread



Getting the 12.9” Cellular and suiting it up possibly with:

1) Apple Pencil Gen 2 - OOS

Allows engraving!

2) Apple Smart Keyboard

Anyone waiting for ASK alternatives?

3) Apple Smart Folio

Looks like the Apple Smart Folio for IPad Pro 3 provides protection for the back this time!

The keyboard folio case supports 2 positions. If I want to use it in drawing position, I’ll have to get the folio case or other 3rd party case. They should design the keyboard folio to also support the iPad in drawing mode which would be the ultimate case!

Getting the 11" one, not really interested in Apple's cases, kind of waiting for the cases for the iPad to come out soon so that I will have one for it when it arrives on 7th Nov. Anyone looking to apply screen protector? Never applied one before for my previous iPads

Need to find one that leaves an opening at the side to fit Apple Pencil. This means there will bound to be an area exposed

Apple cases are still of the best quality and fit but not the price though.

You don't have to apply screen protector if you are not using Apple Pencil.

The keys on the keyboard folio case look shallow. The typeing feeling will not be good due to no tactile feedback.

If you have tried the iPad Pro Keyboard case from Apple that was released previously for the 10.5" and 12", it is actually pretty good.
