iPhone Life Magazine - - 2018 Best Tech Guide - BY SARAH KINGS­BURY

Logi Base Charg­ing Stand with Smart Con­nec­tor for iPad Pro ($99.99) Log­itech worked with Ap­ple to de­sign this Made for iPhone Smart Con­nec­tor charg­ing dock, so it goes per­fectly with your other Ap­ple gear. What it lacks in ad­justa­bil­ity (you can't al­ter the view­ing an­gle), it makes up for in sturdy build, in­clud­ing pad­ding and mag­nets that pro­tect your iPad Pro from scratches and slips. It's also com­pat­i­ble with the Log­itech Slim Combo Key­board Case (start­ing at $129.99) when the key­board is de­tached.

Zagg Mes­sen­ger Folio Key­board Case for iPad Pro ($59.99) This folio case holds the iPad Pro se­curely in place and works with screen pro­tec­tors if you want ex­tra pro­tec­tion. I found the key­board to be small but easy to type on, and I liked that I could eas­ily ad­just the iPad screen to any an­gle. The case also in­cludes an Ap­ple Pen­cil holder. The key­board is not de­tach­able, but you can fold it out of the way when us­ing just the iPad.

STM At­las Folio Case ($39.95$69.95)

This fab­ric-cov­ered folio case stylishly pro­tects my iPad on every side. I love how easy it is to find the per­fect view­ing an­gle when I use it as a stand and the way the cover's mag­netic clo­sure saves en­ergy by send­ing the iPad to sleep. Bonus! If you have an iPad with Ap­ple Pen­cil sup­port, the At­las will keep the Pen­cil snug and pro­tected in its built-in holder when the folio is closed.

TechMatte Ap­ple Pen­cil Charg­ing Stand ($19.99) Ap­ple is known for its beau­ti­fully de­signed tech. And yet some­how we're ex­pected to use our iPads with an Ap­ple Pen­cil stick­ing straight out of the tablet's Light­ning port while it charges. The so­lu­tion? This af­ford­able alu­minum charg­ing stand. Not only does the stand charge your Ap­ple Pen­cil in min­utes, it even has a place to hold the pen­cil's easy-to-lose Light­ning con­nec­tor cap in the mean­time.

Ot­terBox De­fender Series Case (Start­ing at $69.95)

My six-year-old niece tested this case thor­oughly and it with­stood every chal­lenge. It has port cov­ers for dust pro­tec­tion, an in­ner rub­ber layer for drop pro­tec­tion, a built-in screen pro­tec­tor, and a stand that dou­bles as a shield for the front of your iPad.
