9 fantastic case options for the new iPad Pro 9.7-inch
If you're looking to get your hands on the new iPad Pro 9.7-inch, you might as well check out the various case options that are already available. After all, this is a powerful and expensive device that also holds its resell value remarkably well – and all of this makes investing in good protection highly worth it. Naturally, iPad Air owners might be wondering whether the cases they already have for their tablets will fit on the new iPad Pro. Well, they will, but you're not going to like the absence of certain features.

Although the 9.7-inch iPad Pro and the iPad Air 2 both have the same exact dimensions in terms of height, width, and depth, the new model has three aspects that older cases literally have covered – but not in the way you want them! As you probably know, the iPad Pro 9.7-inch has a Smart Connector, four speakers (two on each end), and a TrueTone flash next to its rear camera. iPad Air 2 cases will fit, but they will cover up these features, which is rather awkward. In short, you're going to want a new case for your new tablet, so here are nine great options for early buyers!

This is the first time i have been tempted to upgrade my ipad air 1. The problem is other than the lack of split screen multitasking, my ipad air is running like the day i bought it.

Do you ever get that ridiculous keyboard lag though? I'd say mine is running way better than the day I got it since iOS7 would randomly restart all the time. On the topic of iPad cases, I use a griffin survivor (not the slim one) and it is amazing, the port covers could be a tiny bit better but it is very good. Dropped it down the stairs and there was no damage at all :)

Yes. I still have the Air running iOS 7 and have no problems. That being said, I feel like there are enough new features so I pre-ordered the new iPad Pro 9.7. It should arrive in the next day or two!
