Protect your iPad Pro & Smart Keyboard Folio with the DODOcase Smart Keyboard Folio Sleeve

I love my 2018 12.9-inch iPad Pro with the Apple Smart Keyboard Folio, as it’s fast, sleek and slender. I also worry about it, since dropping the thin combination could damage the iPad Pro or Smart Keyboard Folio beyond repair. Fortunately, DODOcase has come to the rescue with the new Smart Keyboard Folio Sleeve (starting at $74.95) in sizes that fit Apple’s products in both the 12.9-inch and 11-inch sizes.

Steve Sande’s hands-on review of the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro

Steve Sande’s hands-on review of the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro

Dennis Sellers and I decided that since we both had experience with the earlier iterations of the iPad Pro that we’d write separate reviews of the new 12.9-inch version.

Well, fortunately Pad & Quill saw the trend towards more svelte computers and tablets and developed the new Small Briefcase (US$219.00).

Logitech CREATE Keyboard Case for 12.9-inch iPad Pro: The keyboard Apple should have made

Logitech CREATE Keyboard Case for 12.9-inch iPad Pro: The keyboard Apple should have made

Since I first picked up my 12.9-inch iPad Pro last November, I've used the $169.99 Apple Smart Keyboard.  While it's nice -- and I do love the use of the Smart Connector so I never have to worry about charging the keyboard or pairing it with my Pro -- there are some things that have made me wish I had another keyboard. I've had the $149.99 Logitech CREATE Keyboard Case for just a short time, but already find it to be a much better keyboard than the one Apple created.
