The iPad’s sleek design is one of the main reason why I am so fond of this particular tablet. I simply enjoy a beautiful design, and I always found that a stylish iPad case can add, not distract, to the overall iPad experience. This post is a running list of beautiful iPad cases that I find around the web.
Before I indulge you with my favourite iPad case designs, let me just quickly address a few points:
- Do you need an iPad case? No, certainly not. Even if you are concerned about scratches when carrying around the iPad, a sleeve is in many cases a more economical solution that can be just as stylish. A really good place to look for unique and stylish iPad sleeves is etsy.
- Shouldn’t you buy a smart cover or smart case from Apple? Not necessarily. In my opinion, Apple makes great hardware and software, but Apple is not an accessory company. There are plenty of more stylish (and more durable and functional) alternatives out there.
- Do I recommend all cases in this post? I can’t. I only recommend things that I have tried out personally, and many of the cases are on this list because I would like to try them out. This post is more my personal wish list.
If you ask me for a recommendation: I personally use a Spigen leather case for my current iPad, and once I upgrade to a new iPad, I will highly consider the Spigen SGP Leinwand Leather case to carry it around (the first in this list). More likely though I will opt for a keyboard case such as the Adonit Writer Plus (the last one in this list), just because I want to use the iPad for extended writing projects.

I hope that you like these cases as much as I do. Since the prices of these things are constantly on the move (be sure to check for discounts!), I decided to not give any price details. As a rule of thumb: Non-leather iPad cases posted here are in the range of $40 to $60, and leather / keyboard cases can go up to $80-100. That’s roughly around the prices for Apple’s smart cover of the same material, but you get a lot of added style.
And functionality! If you are planning to type a lot on the iPad, Adonit’s Writer Plus is definitely a good choice.
