Apple's official Smart Keyboard Case is a staff favorite because it's thin, lightweight, and gets the job done in style. If you want something that looks good and just works beautifully, this is your case.

The case style I always choose for my iPads is the ZtotopCase for iPad Pro 12.9 Inch. I like the slim, lightweight style and the front cover that folds back to form a stand for watching videos or typing. Simply opening and closing the cover wakes up your iPad Pro or puts it to sleep. If you have an Apple Pencil, this case is ideal. Not only will it store your Apple Pencil when not in use, but the case holds it in the right spot to charge while it's being stored.
