The iPad Mini 2019 (fifth generation) is perfect for powerful performance on the go. There is a greater risk of damage and breakdown with greater portability, however. The best thing is to give your device more durability with a case or cover.
We have reviewed the best cases that offer both a variety of fashion and function to fit your needs, whether you simply want a case that provides basic protection or more bells and whistles with a stylish finish. Do it
Infiland iPad Mini 5 Case
This chic – but all-business – iPad mini cover looks great whether you’re in the office or in the classroom. It features a dual standing angle that encourages the position to be adjusted properly for viewing or typing. Its built-in Apple Pencil holder ensures that you will never lose your valuable writing and sketching accessories during transit. The Auto Wake / Sleep feature lets your Mini sleep to shut down to conserve battery life, and it automatically wakes up when you’re ready to use it. It comes in Black, Gray, Navy, Mint Green or Wine Red.
Snug ipad mini 5 leather case
The Snugg case provides a luxurious look and is derived from a premium bonded PU leather exterior that is slim, light, and rugged with subtle, contrasting stitching. It easily slips into a backpack or briefcase to protect your fragile tablet from harsh environments and impacts. It enhances protective features with reinforced corners to shield against drops, knocks, scratches and dust. A nubuck interior cushions the tablet’s delicate screen. It comes in nine elegant colors.
Decoded Leather Foldable Slim Sleeve
Tablets are not often used as smartphones, so for many, one sleeve is enough to secure their iPad. By decoded this sleeve is by no means cheap, but if you don’t mind spending a little money on your security, it’s hard to find something more luxurious for it. It is made from premium full-grain leather, which is soft to the touch, but durable and protective. Leather develops its own patina over time, making it unique, while a magnetic closure prevents your iPad from falling. It can convert to a stand and also has an integrated holder for the Apple Pencil. Stylish and protective, this is a great option if you don’t mind spending money. As a sleeve, it will be compatible with the iPad Mini 5 and 4.
Griffin Survivor Airstrap
The tablet is an exceptional machine for work and play, and the iPad mini’s small size is perfect for working or playing. But the larger frame doesn’t lend itself well to holding it with one hand – so Griffin’s survivor Airstrap fixes that issue. Slip your hand into the hand strap on the back of the case and you won’t have to worry about leaving your iPad again. It rotates in 30-degree intervals, so you can hold your iPad at many useful angles. The rugged impact-resistant shell is tough, with raised edges for display and camera lenses and precise openings for all ports and features. Griffin has also confirmed that the case will work with both the 2019 iPad Mini 5 and the 2015 iPad Mini 4.
Otterbox Cemetery Clear
Otterbox is well known for its heavy protective cases, but it also sells many more subtle options. The Symmetry case is one of the best clear iPad mini cases you can get by using a tough polycarbonate with a special rubber bumper to protect your iPad. It’s perfectly clear, so you can show it to your iPad while keeping it safe, and it’s thin enough to not add too much thickness to your tablet. There is a loop to hold your Apple Pencil, and even a removable spine, so you can snap on Apple’s Smart Cover for extra protection. It’s certainly not cheap, but Oterbox cases rarely occur, and the protection is excellent.
Zag Folio Case with Backlit Bluetooth Keyboard
The Zug has a clever design in this case that combines a fabric cover with a kickstand and a Bluetooth keyboard. The keys stretch fairly well, and the keyboard’s battery is designed to last up to a year between charges. There is a full-width kickstand that enables you to enable the iPad Mini at normal laptop angles. Your iPad mini holds it in place with minimal corners and a ridge inside, which means you don’t have access to the screen, port and controls. It is advertised only for the iPad Mini 5, but an iPad Mini 4 version is also available.
UAG Metropolis Folio Case
If you want something protective and practical for your iPad mini, look no further. UAG cases are tough, with an outer shell shell and an inner core that absorbs shock, but they are much lighter to see. There is a smart cover to protect the screen when not in use and it acts like a landscape stand. You’ll get precise cutouts for easy access to everything, and there’s an Apple Pencil holder. This is a great protective option. This is just for the iPad mini 5, but also an iPad mini 4 model.
Lefon Kids Case for iPad Mini
The iPad Mini is a very favorite with children, and the brightly colored Lefon case is sure to excite younger people. Despite its fun exterior, it means trade with impact resistant EVA, and is manufactured with hazard-free safe materials. Children will still have full access to all the features and controls of the tablet. The corners are reinforced with double-thick silicone to protect it from drops and impact. The back and sides are covered with thick foam that extends over the screen to keep the face scratch-free. Grip handles are difficult to fall off. The convertible stand case turns into a handle for easy transportation from school to home and can bend back to serve as a stand. It comes in black, blue, green, orange, purple, red and rose.
Gumdrop Hideway with Kickstand
Matters are no more rugged. Gumdrop’s design is chunky and bold, combining tough, easy to grip, malleable silicon with a tough polycarbonate frame. There are openings for ports and cameras. At the back, you’ll find a collapsible stand that can bend you and allows you to drive your iPad mini across the landscape at an angle for viewing or typing. When you leave your tablet with this case on it, there is no need to panic. This particular case is for the iPad mini 5, but also an iPad mini 4 case.
STM Ducks Case
If you’re looking for a rough solution, you’ll be happy to know that the Dux case for drop testing exceeds military standards 810F / G, meaning it will survive a tumble up to 6.6 ft (2 m) . It blends rigid polycarbonate and malleable TPU with a water-resistant polyurethane cover that doubles back as a stand. The magnets in the cover help it act as a stand and automatically bring your iPad mini to life when you open it. All cutouts are accurate and the back of the case is transparent. It is heavy, but it is actually unavoidable with protective cases. This case will work with both the iPad Mini 5 and Mini 4.
Moshi verscover case
This sleek case is practical and stylish. The polycarbonate shell fits the iPad Mini perfectly, and the microfiber cover features Moshi’s origami-inspired folding design, so you can view your tablet at different angles in portrait or landscape view. The cover has a built-in magnet, so when you close it, your tablet automatically falls asleep and springs to life when you open it. This is just for the iPad mini 5, but an iPad mini 4 version.
Logitech Focus Protective Case
This folio-style case opens to reveal the full QWERTY keyboard. It is quite light and slim without the responsive feel and travel you would expect from a good keyboard. The iPad Mini has a tough frame to hold and the magnets ensure that it doesn’t open when it shouldn’t. You will also find that you can prop your tablet at different angles for different activities. Rechargeable batteries should last about six months between charges. It has not been certified to fit the latest iPad Mini 5, but if you are using the 2019 model, use caution in buying it.
Ballistic hard jacket case
If you are after some solid drop protection, the tough jacket is what you need. The case has heavily reinforced corners to provide drop protection from falls up to 6 feet. There is also a raised lip around the screen to protect it. A removable cover gives you 360-degree protection, and there is also an easy folding kickstand on the back. This is one of the best rugged cases that you can get for the iPad mini 4. Unfortunately, it probably won’t work with the iPad mini 5 due to the button cover.
Finty folio case
These inexpensive folio cases are finished in durable polyurethane and have a soft microfiber lining inside. There are grooves to allow your iPad mini to hold different positions. You will get an Apple Pencil Loop and a handy pocket on the back. The magnetic stripe triggers automatic sleep and wake functions and there are cutouts for easy access to everything. This case is very good value and comes in a wide range of colors and patterned finishes. It works with both iPad Mini 5 and iPad Mini 4.
Superior Unicorn Beetle Pro Case
Here is another rugged iPad mini case that will protect against drops and bumps. The frame fully covers your iPad mini, using a combination of rigid polycarbonate and absorbent TPU to guard against knocks, bumps and drops – and even has a built-in screen protector. This combination makes it one of the most difficult cases, and it also comes with a horizontal kickstand for watching videos. The cutouts are perfect and have buttons and port covers to keep out dust and dirt. This case works with both iPad Mini 5 and iPad Mini 4 and is a great low cost option.
