5 of the best iPad 3 cases

Just got your hands on Apple’s new tablet and want to keep box fresh? Here's five cases that should make dings and scratches a distant memory

Gumdrop Drop Tech Military Edition


“Designed for civilians, inspired by military”, this case doesn’t only look like tank armour, it protects your iPad 3 like it. A snap-on polycarbonate cover ensures the screen remains scratch-free while the main casing offers several layers of shock absorption, with extra protection around the front and back camera ports. There are even dust filters!


Grove Bamboo Case


Hey bro, show your love of things nature-related with this all-natural case. There’s sturdy bamboo to protect the back and sides of your iPad, and a leather front cover emblazoned with the image of a tree.

iSkin Agent 6 Sling


If you longboard to your job at a creative agency every morning, this might be the most fuss-free way of carrying the iPad 3 you inevitably own. It’s a cross-body sling and its soft lining and premium ballistic nylon keep the tablet snug and secure. There’s also a front pouch for a phone and an external, detachable pouch for other items.

Apple Leather Smart Cover


We know it’s not exactly new, but you can’t beat the Smart Cover for sheer ingenious design: the way it clips magnetically to the tablet and closes tightly over the screen is nothing short of brilliant. The plastic cover is £20 cheaper, but we’d always pick the leather model for maximum stylishness.

Proporta Ted Baker Leather Style Case


Brit fashion icon Ted Baker has already turned his hand to this faux leather case for the iPad 3, which replicates the look of crocodile skin. Opt for the white finish for maximum bling.
