Otterbox Defender iPad Pro CaseSource: OtterBox

What you need to know

  • The OtterBox Defender is now available for order.
  • It's a rugged case for those hot new iPad Pros.
  • There's even a built-in screen protector.

If you're waiting impatiently for your new iPad Pro to arrive you're probably already turning your attention to how best to protect it. OtterBox has been thinking about that as well, and the Defender Series is the result. Available for both the 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro, the case is available to order direct from OtterBox now.

What you'll get is a case with a "multi-layer defense from the solid inner shell and resilient outer slipcover" which sounds pretty safe to me. But there's more.

The new iPad Pro 11-inch (2nd Generation) and iPad Pro 12.9-inch (4th Generation) are always protected from the most rugged adventures or littlest hands with Defender Series. With multiple layers of protection, including a built-in screen protector, Defender Series keeps the new iPad Pro 11-inch (2nd Generation) and iPad Pro 12.9-inch (4th Generation) protected from drops and bumps. A screen shield snaps on the front of the case when not in use and doubles as a stand for easy viewing and typing.

Having something to keep that gorgeous screen safe and sound can be vital if you're in a harsh environment, and having a stand that can keep your iPad Pro upright is perfect for watching media and whatnot

If protection is the name of the game, OtterBox's Defender Series is definitely worth your consideration. It'll set you back $129.95 for the 12.9-inch model and $89.95 for the 11-inch one.
