OtterBox today announced the debut of new protective cases designed for the iPad Pro, the iPad mini 4, and the iPad Air 2. The Defender Series is being updated with cases for the iPad Pro, the Profile Series is being updated with cases for the iPad Air 2, and a new Symmetry Series Folio is available for the iPad mini 4.
The Defender Series for iPad Pro, priced at $129.95, includes a built-in screen protector to keep the tablet's display free from scratches, and like other cases in the Defender Series, its three-layer design protects the iPad from drops and dust. It also includes a shield stand for use when watching videos. Unique to the iPad Pro is a slot that holds the Apple Pencil.
OtterBox's Symmetry Series Folio for the iPad mini 4 is priced at $59.95 and offers full coverage with a protective back shell and a wrap-around faux leather or fabric cover. The Folio cover converts into a multi-position stand with 360-degree rotation for use in both landscape and portrait mode.
The Profile Series for the iPad Air 2 is an inexpensive, simple folio case that's priced at $49.95. It includes a protective rear shell that keeps the iPad Air 2 safe from drops and scratches, plus a wrap-around folio-style cover that doubles as a single-position stand.
OtterBox's new cases for Apple's iPad lineup are available from the OtterBox website and are currently discounted by 25 percent. Cases for the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 4 will ship by Christmas with free express shipping, but the iPad Pro Defender Series Case won't be in stock until January.
