The 11-inch iPad Pro is the perfect size for most users who are not using the iPad as their primary machine. You can use it for taking handwritten notes using one of the best note-taking apps, reading comics and books, drawing, playing games, and more. While the 12.9-inch iPad Pro gets a better and bigger display, it’s too unwieldy to use an iPad and costs $300 more. So, if you have purchased the new 11-inch M2 iPad Pro or have the older M1 iPad Pro, here are the best cases for the 11-inch iPad Pro (M1 & M2) you can buy to protect it.

Best cases for 11-inch iPad Pro (M1 & M2)
The 11-inch M2 iPad Pro has the same dimensions as the M1 iPad Pro, so the cases listed here will work on both devices. The M2 chip offers an extra 18% CPU and 35% GPU performance, however, unless you are using it for intensive workloads like 3D modeling and video editing, we don’t think anyone will notice the performance upgrade.
The enhanced GPU performance will be noticeable if you play games on your iPad Pro. If you play games, you should check out the best gaming controller for iPhone and iPad that you can buy to enjoy the games even more. With that said, let’s get to our list, shall we?

7. Logitech Combo Touch iPad Pro 11-inch case with keyboard
If you use your iPad as a writing device, the Logitech Combo Touch case is for you. First of all, it’s about $140 cheaper than the Magic Keyboard from Apple and gives you almost the same typing experience. You also get a built-in trackpad that lets you use the new mouse functionality of the iPadOS. You also get a kickstand that gives your far more adjustable viewing angles than the Magic Keyboard. You also get an extra row of function keys that are missing on the Magic Keyboard.
The case also features all-around bumpers, giving extreme protection to the device. We love the case and consider it to be the keyboard case for the 11-inch iPad Pro. However, if the hovering effect and clean aesthetics of Magic Keyboard are more in your alley, that also is an excellent keyboard case for the 11-inch iPad Pro, especially if you can get it on a deal.
