Most third party accessory makers rely on Apple’s short-sighted approach to design. An entire ecosystem has been created to rectify Apple’s design “errors”, if you may. From beautiful battery cases for the iPhone (as opposed to Apple’s ugly camel-hump case), to the case that puts the headphone jack back on your iPhone, to even tiny accessories or stickers that help you keep track of or disguise your Earpods, there is a thriving industry of beautifully designed products that honestly make the Apple experience a memorable one.
It’s strange how Apple has aggressively paired and marketed the iPad Pro along with the Apple Pencil, but none of Apple’s cases really integrate the two. You inevitably have to carry the Pencil separately in your pocket and if that doesn’t spell trouble, I don’t know what does! ATECH comes in to fill that void with their iPad Pro Case that not only does the job of protecting your iPad Pro, it also doubles up as a dock (with two positions), comes with smart-wake and sleep abilities, and boasts of a nice recessed groove that allows you to fit your Apple Pencil in securely.
The ATECH iPad Pro case aims its guns directly at Apple’s iPad Pro smart cover. At less than half the price, it gives you the more than what Apple’s own case promises. The ATECH iPad Pro case comes in 4 colors that give it a professional demeanor. All four colors (black, grey, red and navy) come with a leatherette finish on the outside that feels great to touch. A microfiber fabric on the inside protects the iPad from scratches while also keeping the screen free of dust. The tablet fits cozily into the TPU case and a dedicated slot for the Apple Pencil means that the two gadgets that were made for each other will always be paired together. A match made in heaven, honestly! Plus, did I mention that you can get it at less than half the price?!
