Waterproof cases are also often rugged, offering general protection from scratches and shocks, too. So, they are a practical choice, especially if your tablet is going to be handled by kids. Here are some reliable options to consider when shopping for a waterproof iPad mini case.

Please note that some of these were originally designed for iPad mini 4, which has the same physical dimensions as the iPad mini 5. The only differences are the placement of the microphone on the back and the volume buttons on the side.
