Apple Smart Case
The new iPad Air 2 (the sixth iPad) is unbelievably skinny. We’re talking about 6.1mm, which makes it easy to handle for such a big tablet, but you have to worry about durability. You can add a flourish of personal style to Apple’s minimalist design, choose functional elements to enhance your daily use, and make sure it’s safe when you sling it in your bag; all it takes is the right case. Here are some of our favorites.
