We like the Otterbox Defender as it’s one of the few iPad cases that manages to be truly protective while offering a sense of style. It’s just a bit better-looking than many of the military offerings around.
Cut-out areas expose the Home button, cameras and sensors (as well as the Apple logo on the rear), helping the Ottberbox Defender look more Apple-esque than other protective iPad cases.
It’s still rugged, though, with dual-layer cushions and three layers of protection. It also covers the ports and a shield stand covers the screen (or props up the iPad).
On Amazon, the Otterbox is available for the iPad for £48.93 (UK only) – it should fit the 2017/2018 versions, but we haven’t tested this. You can also find versions for the iPad Pro 10.5in (£67.99/$53.36), iPad Pro 12.9 (£52.87) and iPad Mini 4 (£37.74/$45.51).
