The new iPad 10th generation is here, and it’s the biggest upgrade the basic iPad has gotten in years. You get a new edge-to-edge display that brings the design in sync with the costlier iPad Air and iPad Pros, a landscape front-facing camera, a new folio keyboard with a function row, Center Stage support, and more. All these features also mean that the basic iPad gets a price bump and now costs $449. That means you need to take extra care of this iPad. Here are the best cases for the iPad 10th Generation you need to buy to protect it.
Best cases for 10.9-inch iPad (10th generation)
While the iPad 10th generation is an awesome product, there are also some debatable choices, like the inclusion of a USB-C port but still supporting Apple Pencil 1st generation. So, if you want to be able to charge your Apple Pencil with iPad 10th generation, you will need an adapter. Frankly, that’s not a big thing for us, as the original charging of Apple Pencil by sticking it into the lightning port didn’t make sense. It was a clumsy setup and a disaster waiting to happen, so we don’t know why people online are so upset about this change. Anyway, you can check out the best Apple Pencil accessories to solve this charging issue and improve your Apple Pencil experience.
