    It would seem to be a minefield when trying to buy the right case for the iPad Pro. I have yet to buy my new iPad but knowing how expensive the case was for the iPad I have, I was quite surprised at the price which seems very reasonable for Apple. Being in the UK, I suspect it will be a tad more expensive here!
    Thank you so much for all your work in showing the pros and cons of these cases. It certainly has made my choice much easier to make. I will keep a lookout!
