When Apple unveiled the iPad Air 2 to the world on Thursday we were a little surprised the new tablet was even thinner, and while this was good news for potential buyers looking for something very sleek, it was not so good for case makers, and those who were hoping to use their original iPad Air case. Sadly, you will have to spend a few more bucks on top of the purchase of the new iOS tablet, and there are not too many choices at this moment.
We know there are some iPad Air 2 cases on the market, but if you are looking for something the moment you order or walk into an Apple Store, then there is the official iPad Air 2 Smart Case, which is currently the only one for now.
Seeing as though the new iPad is thinner, there will be some of you worrying that it could bend, especially with the bad press from a few individuals intent on getting a few extra clicks on their YouTube channels. We are sure there is nothing to worry about, but this does not mean you have to do away with protecting your latest addition to the Apple family.
The iPad Air 2 Smart Case will protect all corners of your tablet, as well as the back and screen thanks to its built-in magnetic cover. Seeing as though this case has been made by Apple, you know it will not add on any unnecessary bulk to this already thin deceive. It is finished in a leather design and has a microfiber lining to help keep the iPad Air 2nd generation clean and safe.
It also comes with a built-in stand, ideal for when you want to FaceTime or watch movies. The price for this iPad Air Smart Case on the Apple Store is $79 and comes in a choice of 5 colors, soft pink, black, red, midnight blue and olive brown.
