In October, Apple updated the iPad product line with a few new devices, including iPad Pro models with an M2 chip. Here are the best cases to buy to protect the high-end device.
The company released the new iPad Pros on October 18. Top features include a unique Apple Pencil hover experience, ProRes video capture, fast Wi-Fi 6E, and the powerful M2 chip.
Apple hasn't changed the physical design of the 2022 iPad Pro, so people upgrading from their 2021 iPad Pro can continue to use their old case. However, we found some great options for new shoppers or people wanting a new case.
