The iPad Pro should be right around the corner now that the fourth-generation Apple TV is officially available. Some rumors are pointing to a November 11 launch, but nothing has been officially confirmed. We do know that the iPad Pro is slated for a November release and that it is time to start preparing for its arrival. First you must consider if you're going to ditch your old 9.7-inch iPad for the more powerful 12.9-inch version. If have already made up your mind and plan to pre-order an iPad Pro, then here are some case and keyboard case options for you to consider.
Unfortunately there are not a lot of cases available now for the iPad Pro, but there are a lot in the works. For example, Zagg has announced an iPad Pro version of its slim book keyboard case slated for December, and there is also the CREATE line from Longitech that was created in partnership with Apple. The slim book for the iPad Pro will retail $139.99 if you want to wait until next month. The CREATE will launch on the same day as the iPad Pro, but pricing is unknown at this time.
