Will your iPad mini cases fit the new iPad mini 4?

Earlier we determined that many cases for the iPhone 6 would still be compatible with the iPhone 6s, with the exception of tight fitting covers such as waterproof cases. Hoping we could say the same for the iPad mini 4 was a tall order, however. There's a considerable difference in dimensions between both current versions and the iPad mini 4 that would make any case you currently own just a bit too short in height and roomy in thickness.

That said, there are a couple cases for the iPad mini 4 available from Apple including the Smart Cover and Silicone Case in a variety of color options. Get the full lowdown on size specs below.
