While the 2019 iPad Air 3 is a totally different form factor from the iPad Air 2, it's actually the same size and shape as the 2018 iPad Pro (10.5-inch). There are some slight differences: the iPad Air 3 has a smaller camera and fewer speakers. But even with these differences, an 2018 iPad Pro (10.5-inch) case will still fit the 2019 iPad Air 3. Here are some of the best iPad Air 3 waterproof cases.

Which is best for you?

You can always trust iMore. Our team of Apple experts have years of experience testing all kinds of tech and gadgets, so you can be sure our recommendations and criticisms are accurate and helpful. Find out more about how we test.

Which case you ultimately choose really depends on whether you need waterproofing or water-resistance, and whether you want just one everyday case that does it all or a waterproof bag to just pop your iPad into for occasional watery situations such as a quick dash through the rain. For daily protection, I'd recommend the XBK Waterproof Case as one of the overall best iPad Air 3 waterproof cases. It's fully sealed without being overly bulky, plus you can use the iPad Air while it's in the case.

If you already have a regular case that you like and you just want something for when you are at the beach or pool, I'd pick up an AICase Univeral Waterproof Case. With any waterproof case, be sure to follow installation instructions carefully before entrusting it with your iPad.
