Features to Consider When Purchasing an iPad Case

I’ve been through my share of iPad cases.  I have a entire collection.  Unfortunately, I’m starting to feel like an expert.  I’ve had to learn the hard way.  My natural inclination is just to pick a case I think is pretty.  Yeah, that’s just not a good idea.  I have several “pretty” cases that now sit in my office, destined to never be used again.  Through a process of trial and error I’ve come to understand that I need to look for a number of key aspects in an iPad case.

1.  It’s got to be pretty.  Hey, you’ve got to like it, right?

2.  It needs to stay on.  This seems obvious, but I have cases that come off unexpectedly.  Not only is this a nuisance,  but it also potentially dangerous for the iPad mini.

3.  It needs to have appropriate holes for the important iPad features.  Again, you would think this aspect would be obvious.  But once again I have an iPad case in my office that doesn’t have a hole for the camera.  Don’t forget to look for the camera hole!

4.  It needs to close properly.  This is clearly not rocket science, but again this feature can be hard to find.  I do not want my iPad screen scratched in anyway.  Proper closer is essential.

Luckily, I am currently happy with my iPad case, but I have been on a quest to find an appropriate iPad mini case.  I am happy to report that I have found a case that fulfills all my requirements.

If pink is not your thing, there are also other colors available including- black and turquoise.

If you know what you want in an iPad case, more power to you.  But try not to learn the hard way like me.  Take heed and consider the above mentioned aspects.



I received the above mentioned product for review purposes, all opinions are my own.


  1. Oh, yes, those are certainly important features that many manufacturers seem to overlook. Thanks for this review – we’ve been looking into getting an iPad mini and haven’t even begun research on proper cases for one yet!
