The 7th generation iPad 10.2 is a departure from the iPad 9.7 we had been familiar for years. Not only does the iPad 10.2 have a larger screen, but it is also larger in size. It’s also got a new Apple Smart Keyboard connector. So, if you were wondering, the previous 9.7-inch iPad Cases won’t fit on the new iPad 10.2. In this article, let’s look at the 10 Best 10.2 Cases and Covers that you can buy right now for the 7th generation 2019 iPad.
1) MoKo iPad 10.2 Transparent 7th Generation 2019 Case Cover
This is undoubtedly the best case in this list of Best iPad 10.2 Cases and Covers for a couple of reasons.
First is the price. Priced at $3.99, this 7th generation iPad 10.2 case is exceptionally cheap. But it’s cheap doesn’t mean it’s bad in quality or whatsoever. In fact, it’s the opposite. The design of the case is minimal. The back is transparent while the sides are rugged.
So, in case you drop your iPad, you won’t have to worry about damaging your iPad. In addition to that, the MoKo iPad 10.2 Case has full support for the official Apple Smart Keyboard. There’s a cut-out on the side which will let you connect to the Smart Keyboard seamlessly. You can use the smart keyboard designed for the iPad Pro 10.5 and iPad Air (3rd generation) without any issue.
As it’s a cheap case, there isn’t any color option available. What you see is what you get.
2) ESR Rebound Slim Smart Case for iPad 7th Generation 10.2” 2019
The ESR Rebound iPad 10.2 is a slim case for the iPad with a lot of functionality built-in.
If you didn’t know already ESR is known for producing quality phone and tablet cases and covers. This iPad 10.2 Smart Standing case is no different.
The case cover has a TPU back with rubberized coating for a proper grip. On the front, there’s a flip cover that protects the display panel of the iPad. With this case on, you don’t have to worry about shattering your display even without a screen protector on.
The case also has powerful magnets built-in. Having powerful magnets ensures that the Auto Sleep/Wake feature works as intended. And unlike other cheap cases, this one works reliably for years without any issue.
3) 2019 iPad 7th Generation 10.2inch Smart Case with Pencil Holder
If you already have the Apple Pencil or are planning to get one for your new iPad, you definitely want to check this case out. This iPad 7th generation cover has a dedicated slot for storing the Apple Pencil. If you have a Logitech Crayon instead, sadly, this case will not be a proper fit for your stylus.
This 2019 7th generation iPad 10.2 provides full protection to the iPad including both the front and the back. The case itself is made from PU leather which makes holding the case feel quite good on the hands.
4) InCase Slim Sleeve for iPad 10.2-inch with Pencil Slot
If you are someone who likes to carry their phones and tablets naked, you may want to consider getting a sleeve. Sure, you may take care of your iPad 10.2 while it’s on your hands. But when it’s on a bag, it’s a completely different story.
The InCase iPad 10.2 tablet sleeve can be the perfect companion for your iPad. It even has a dedicated Apple Pencil slot inside. Unfortunately, this sleeve is only available in Cool Grey color as can be seen above.
Talking about the materials used in the making of this sleeve, it is made from 90% Polyester and 10% Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate. The sleeve, however, is not very good at resisting water. The other thing you may not like about this sleeve is the price. Priced at around $50, this premium iPad 10.2 sleeve isn’t going to be for everyone.
You can buy this Slim Sleeve from InCase Official website.
5) Gesma iPad 10.2 inch with Wallet Cover
The price and the versatility of the Gesma Wallet Cover Case are what has enabled it to be on this list of Best iPad 10.2 Cases and Covers. This 2019 iPad 10.2 case is priced under $10 and is available in 2 color options.
The Flip Cover is made from PU leather material and provides 360-degree protection to the iPad. In addition to that, the cover isn’t slippery and provides proper grip while holding it on hand.
Since this iPad 10.2 PU leather flip cover is made specifically for this iPad, all the ports and buttons are easily reachable.
If this wasn’t enough, you can also use this over as a kick-stand. You can have the cover in two-position- one is ideal for watching movies while the other is ideal for using the Apple Pencil on the iPad.
Just like some more expensive and premium iPad covers, this too has Auto Sleep/Wake feature which works exceptionally well.
Finally this versatile iPad 10.2 7th generation flip cover has dedicated slots where you can store things like Apple Card and other credit cards.
For the price, you really cannot go wrong with this iPad Case. This is one for the best iPad 10.2 cases to get especially if you are tight on budget.
6) JUQITECH Case Sleeve for iPad 10.2 with Apple Pencil Holder
Just looking at the picture, how much do you think this iPad 10.2 Leather Sleeve costs? $20? $30? Well, right now, you can get this JuqiTech PU Leather Apple iPad sleeve for under $15!
While the sleeve isn’t made from genuine leather material like the one found in the Official Apple Leather Cover, it’s pretty good. And hey, you are saving the animals. So, it must be good.
This Sleeve was initially designed for the iPad 10.5 Pro but it works just as well on this smaller iPad. The sleeve also has a dedicated slot for storing the Apple Pencil.
The JuqiTech PU leather sleeve has a microfiber lining on the inside which means that it won’t scratch your iPad even if you don’t have any screen protector on.
7) Leather Smart Cover for iPad (7th Generation)- Saddle Brown
If money isn’t your concern, getting the official Apple Leather Sleeve for the iPad 10.2 is the best thing to do. It’s undoubtedly the best Smart Cover in this list of Best iPad 10.2 Cases and Covers. But remember, you will have to pay a premium for the Apple logo on the back.
The Leather Smart Cover for iPad may be the Best sleeve for the iPad 10.2 at the moment but also the most expensive one. If you decide to buy one, be prepared to shell out $69.
Since it’s a smart cover, it has got some nifty features off its sleeve.
First of all, the sleeve connects to the smart connector to clip on to your iPad. It’s extremely easy to install and remove this cover. Unfortunately, it only protects the front side of the iPad 10.2 7th generation and not the back.
You can use this genuine 2019 iPad Leather Cover to place your iPad in various positions. The iPad Cover can be basically used as a stand for reading, viewing, and optimal typing experience.
You can buy this Smart Cover directly from Apple.
8) Superyong Apple iPad 10.2 Case Cover with free Tempered Glass
It’s no surprise that genuine Apple accessories are the best in terms of design, quality of material and durability. But when you have options like the Superyong Apple 7th generation case cover, you really have to think twice before making a purchase decision.
This Apple iPad Smart Cover which looks identical to the Apple Smart Cover costs 1/5th the price and comes with free Tempered Glass Screen Protector. Also, unlike the official iPad cover, this one also protects the back of the iPad.
You can get this cover in 8 color options. And with so many color options, there’s no doubt that you will like at least one of them. Like the official iPad cover, this one can be used as a stand too. With the stand in place, it’s really fun to watch movies on the iPad.
9) Supveco iPad 10.2 Inch 2019 Case (2019 Model)
This Supveco iPad Case has a PU leather at the back and soft microfiber interior for greater protection. Like many other cases on this list, this case can be used a stand for using the Apple Pencil and content consumption. There’s also a built-in Apple Pencil holder at the bottom of the case.
You can position this case in 3 angles. Designed specifically for the iPad 10.2, it won’t fit any of the other iPads. It’s also got an auto sleep/wake feature which works exceptionally well. You can get this iPad 7th generation cover in 3 colors at the moment.
10) Ztotops iPad 7th Generation 10.2 2019 Cover
The last iPad Cover in this list of Best iPad 10.2 Cases and Covers is the Ztotops PU Leather Slim Folding Stand Cover. This iPad cover is priced on a higher side compared to other iPad covers on this list. However, once you hold the cover, you can immediately know why this cover costs a little more.
The Ztotops iPad 7th generation Case is available in Black, Brown, and my favorite Denim Black color option. Make sure the check the Denim Black color option of this case but it’s a truly unique design.
The cover also has a hand strap which makes holding the iPad for an extended period a breeze. In addition to that, it has a stylus loop which properly houses the Apple pencil. Lastly, there is a dedicated pocket where you can store documents and ID cards snuggly.
Will the 2018 iPad 9.7 Case work on the iPad 10.2 7th generation?
Unfortunately, not. None of the older iPad Case will fit the iPad 10.2. The iPad 9.7, iPad Pro 9.7, iPad Pro 10.5, iPad Air 10.5 cases and covers don’t fit the new iPad 10.2. So, if you are buying the new 2019 7th generation iPad 10.2, you will need to get a new cover for your iPad to get a perfect fit.
How much should you spend on an iPad 10.2 case cover?
Let’s not forget that the iPad 10.2 is a budget offering. As such, I don’t think it’s worth spending $60 or so on a sleeve or a tablet cover. I would personally not recommend you to get any case that is more expensive than $20. At around that price point, you can get really good high-quality cases for the iPad.
Remember that spending more doesn’t always mean that you are getting more. At times, we see that the official iPad leather case goes on sale for as low as $30. If you encounter such deals, it’s definitely worth spending your money on the sleeve. I would never buy the official Smart Apple Cover at its full retail price.
