The lineup of accessories for Apple’s iPad Pro continues to grow. With the larger tablet just hitting the market back in November, a number of companies took time to show off new products at CES 2016 in Las Vegas. Here’s a roundup of some of what was on display.
A nice option that doesn’t offer a keyboard, Speck’s StyleFolio sports complete protection for the tablet. The iPad Pro is protected by a rear shell while the soft microfiber inner lining helps fend off scratches and other hazards.
Buyers can select from a black and gray or pink and gray color option. Both can be ordered now for $49.95.
Another addition to the Survivor line is the Slim Case for the iPad Pro. Offering a built-in screen protector and kickstand, it can also be used with Apple’s Smart Keyboard. A special storage grip on the back of the case can hold an Apple Pencil.
It should land sometime this month and be available in a number of different color schemes. Retail price is $89.99.
Just like Apple’s Smart Keyboard, the Brydge option can turn the tablet into a MacBook lookalike. Instead of depending on the Smart Conenctor, Brydge’s device connects via Bluetooth 4.0 and can go for up to three months before needing to be recharged. And along with the keys being fully backlit, the system can also place your iPad Pro into a number of different viewing angles.
It can be preordered now from Brydge’s site and is slated to arrive in April. It costs $189 and is offered in a silver, gold, or space gray color to better match any iPad Pro.
The Incase Icon Sleeve is a great way to protect your tablet while out and about. The frame is designed to absorb impact and distribute shock. It’s also large enough to hold a tablet with the Smart Keyboard attached, if needed. The tablet is securely protected with a magnetic snap on top of the sleeve.
You can select from three different color combinations. The sleeve is $69.95 and can be purchased directly from Incase now.
Compatible with the Smart Keyboard and Smart Cover, SwitchEasy’s CoverBuddy is highlighted by a slot to hold the optional Apple Pencil. The holder also acts as a great way to elevate the tablet when drawing or typing. If you want the tablet to lay flat, you can insert the included faceplate.
Just $39.99, it can be purchased now in a clear, black, or gray version.
Another nice keyboard option available in three different colors, Incipit’s ClamCase+ also offers backlit keys and a slot for the Apple Pencil.
When it hits the market, it will retail for $169.99.
Even though it is compatible with any iOS device, SanDisk’s new 200GB Connect Wireless Stick definitely looks to be a nice option for anyone who purchased a 32GB version of the iPad Pro. With the stick, you can transfer information to and from your iPad thanks to the built-in Wi-Fi. Up to three devices at one time can stream music and high-definition videos.
It can be ordered now directly from Amazon.com for $119.99.
