The iPad Pro 9.7 was launched back in 2016. But it’s still one of the best in the market given the crisp screen, convenience, and compatibility with the Apple Pencil. If you’re looking for a perfect iPad, Pro 9.7 comes pretty close. In terms of price, this device is a little on the expensive side. So, if you’re planning to buy it, you need to give it good protection as well. Remember, prevention is better than spending a fortune to replace your iPad Pro 9.7 screen. These 7 cases and covers will give you the ultimate protection.
1. iPad Pro 9.7 Ascend Trifold Smart Case – $15.99

The exterior of the case is designed using multiple magnets creating a sturdy folding top layer. This feature is convenient when you need to hold the screen upright for typing. The case is ultra-slim and ultra-lightweight. So, it won’t look too bulky either. iPad Pro 9.7 Ascend Trifold smart case comes in a gorgeous rose gold color for the perfect finish.
