CaseMade has long been one of my favorite iPhone and iPad accessory makers. What I truly admire about it is the high-grade material topped by rich craftsmanship. CaseMade’s all-new folio case for 9.7-inch iPad 2018 has class written all over it. Just a look at the cover and you will feel like being sold out!
But beyond the adorable profile, the folio case has a lot to offer the iPad. However, can it live up to the high expectation and deliver the goods in all aspects? You need to dive into the details to discover what makes the case a premium suite for Apple’s 6th gen tablet.
Vintage Executive Design
To me, what headlines for CaseMade iPad case is the vintage professional-looking design. Carved out of genuine cowhide leather, it showcases top-of-the-line craftsmanship. The visible stitching adds more appeal to the classy profile, while also reinforcing the structure.
You would love to carry it at high-profile meeting and conference. With the soft leather texture, you have improved grip while holding the folio case. The enhanced grip also reduces the chance of accidental falls.
Open design on the side of the case offers unhindered access to all the external features including the camera, lightning connector, volume rocker and headphone jack. Hence, you will be able to use your tablet for the desired convenience.
Form-Fitting and Durable Construction
The case snaps around the iPad snuggly. The form-fitting structure ensures the tablet enjoys the best of both worlds—maximum comfort and needed defense from bumps and scrape. The inclusion of soft-touch polycarbonate mold further empowers the durability. You can fully trust it to disperse impact and safeguard your device against accidental falls.
For all being so protective, the case doesn’t look bulky at all. The ability to make a fine balance between protection and slimness adds yet feather to its cap.
Horizontal Stand for Comfortable Viewing Angle
With the stand functionality, you can easily prop up your iPad to have desired viewing angle. It also ensures you have needed comfort while typing.
If you like watching movies on your tablet, you would really appreciate this horizontal stand. Thanks to the secure hook on the back, it remains stable. Hence, there is no fumbling during your media time.
As someone who loves watching videos on iPad, I find this built-in stand very appreciable. The thing that has caught my eyes in it is the stability that keeps the tablet perfectly intact.
Support for Sleep/Wake Functionality to Prevent Unnecessary Battery Consumption
Another notable feature of this folio case is the support for sleep/wake functionality. The moment you open the case, your iPad screen will wake. And when you close the cover, the screen will automatically sleep to prevent unnecessary battery consumption. As a result, your device will last a little longer between charges.
The CaseMade folio case is a winner from all aspects. Sporting adorable design and top-grade material, it ticks off almost all the boxes.
If you are charmed by classic profile, the folio case would instantly appeal you. As for durability, it’s got enough strength to keep your iPad protected from accidental falls and ugly scrape.
At first, the price may seem to be a bit high, but if you take all the qualities into account, it wouldn’t seem to be overly priced. There is one thing that I would have loved to see in this case– a penholder to keep Apple Pencil or a digital pen securely.
For taking notes or making quick reminders, I like using a stylus. With the availability of a penholder, it becomes a bit convenient to keep and carry the stylus. However, it’s not a deal breaker at all.
