Best clear cases for iPad mini 6 iMore 2022

For the sixth-generation iPad mini, there are plenty of cases available, but few of them offer the minimal protection of a clear case that also lets you view your iPad's cool color scheme. There are surprisingly few clear options out there, so we've done the work for you and gathered the best choices in one handy list. These are the best clear cases for iPad mini 6.

Moko Case Grey

Simple elegance: MoKo Case with Frosted Clear Cover

Staff Pick

MoKo's Frosted Clear Cover offers the best of both worlds: a clear protective shell for the back and a folding leather cover for the front. The transparent shell has a gray tint that matches elegantly with the front cover. It supports auto sleep/wake functionality, and the front cover doubles as a stand.

Esr Hybrid Clear Case

The standard: ESR Hybrid Clear Case

ESR is a great brand that offers no-nonsense products that work well and don't need any extra frills. This Hybrid Clear Case is one such product, a standard clear case with a hard back for protection and a soft outer frame for easy installation.

Fintie Hybrid Slim Case

Artsy pick: Fintie Hybrid Slim Case

While the back panel of this Fintie Slim Case is transparent, the rest is all artsy vibes in cool prints and colors. This one includes both a back panel and folding front cover. It's available in 14 fun colorways.

Tineeowl Matte Back Clear Case

Extra protection: TineeOwl Matte Back Clear Case

The TineeOwl Case incorporates strong bumpers with the clear design for added protection. The entire back panel is transparent, but tough TPU bumpers will provide superior shock absorption as well.

Best for kids: Cantis Clear Case

All the pretty colors: MoKo Case Clear Prints

Now here's something bright and delightful! The MoKo Case with clear prints is based on a transparent shell, but it incorporates beautiful colorful prints over the back plate and front cover.

Show it off

Show off the true colors of your iPad mini 6 in one of these best clear cases. Our favorite is the MoKo Case with Frosted Clear Cover because it's both elegant and protective in two lovely colorways that are also transparent. Since this one features the auto sleep/wake feature, it works just as well as any original Apple case.

If you need a level of protection that's a little more robust, the TineeOwl Clear Case incorporates strong TPU bumpers that will keep your iPad mini 6 safe, even from significant drops and falls. This one does not provide a front cover, but you can aways add a screen protector for extra insurance. There are a lot of options here to fit different styles and budgets.
