The official Apple iPad Case doubles as a security device and a functional stand to read your newspaper/magazines and watch movies. Whether you get this case or a third-party, we suggest a carrying case is the first accessory you purchase when you first your iPad.
This case is fairly thin and made of quality material. It was soft, dense, and rubbery. We found it very durable as scratches from nails and pens didn’t show up. The edges are encased in a durable plastic to ensure a tight protective fit. The cover folds to become a base that keeps the iPad angled for viewing. At $39, it is a small investment to protect your new device.
