There are a variety of different case designs for Apple’s iPad lineup, fitting the majority of needs that most customers are looking for. One category is the folio case, which typically keeps things pretty light, but offers a degree of protection and, typically, a few different viewing angles.
If you’re in the market for a new folio case for your 11- or 12.9-inch iPad Pro, we’ve compiled a quick list of some of the best options out there. There are several different options to choose from, the list should be pretty straightforward. So, let’s dig in.
Best folio cases for 11-inch iPad Pro
ZUGU Case’s The Muse Case
The Muse Case from ZUGU Case is one of the most highly reviewed folio cases on Amazon, with hundreds of reviews and the majority of them being positive. Not just with the thin, but protective case, either. The company’s customer service is also highly praised in some of the reviews as well.
As for the case itself, it’s packed with features. It supports wireless charging of the second-generation Apple Pencil, and it features a magnetic stand design that supports eight different viewing angles. The case also makes sure that the four speakers are exposed, as well as the USB-C port for charging.
The Muse Case also features a dedicated Apple Pencil pocket, and it will even hang off the front of a refrigerator thanks to the magnets. It’s available in four different colors (prices vary depending on choice of color): Black, Navy Blue, Purple, and Red.
The ProCase has a premium composition leather design, with a soft interior to make sure the iPad Pro’s display stays safe while closed. The case itself doesn’t block the wireless charging section on the top of the tablet so you can charge the Apple Pencil, and there are three different viewing angles.
On the front of the case, there is a dedicated document/card pocket, which makes it easy to manage loose cash, smaller documents, and other items. The folio case doesn’t block the camera, the USB-C charging port, or the speakers. It also supports the auto Sleep/Wake feature when opening and closing the case.
The ProCase is available in four colors: Black, Brown, Navy, and Red. It’s priced at either $8.99 or $9.99, depending your choice of color.
The Ztotop case has hundreds of positive reviews, thanks in part to its high quality design. It features a premium nylon woven fabric exterior, while the interior is designed with a soft microfiber material. There is a dedicated organizer pocket, a holder for the Apple Pencil, and a leather hand strap as well.
The Ztotop folio case supports three different viewing angles, supports wireless charging with the Apple Pencil, and doesn’t cover up the cameras, the speakers, or the USB-C charging port.

MoKo Magnetic Smart Case
The MoKo keeps things slim, but still offers plenty of protection for daily use. It features a premium PU leather exterior and a microfiber interior. The case actually attaches to the 11-inch iPad Pro via magnets, keeping it in place and securing it without having to add any bezels or bulky case exteriors.
There are cutouts for the camera on the back, and the MoKo doesn’t block any of the speakers or the USB-C charging port. The folio case offers a couple of different viewing angles.
Prices start as low as $13.99, but as with other folio cases the prices can change based on the color option. There are eight colors to choose from: Black, Navy Blue, Rose Gold, Red, Purple, Space Gray, Almond Blossom, and Peach Blossom.
Apple Smart Folio
Apple’s folio case for the 11-inch iPad Pro is not the cheapest option, but it does get the job done. It features only a couple of different viewing angles, but it does offer protection for both the front and back of the 11-inch iPad Pro. It supports the Wake/Sleep function when opening or closing the folio case, and doesn’t cover up any of the speakers or the USB-C port. It also allows for wireless charging of the Apple Pencil.

Best folio cases for 12.9-inch iPad Pro
The UAG folio is meant to offer a bit more of a rugged design, but manages to keep the whole case’s profile super thin at the same time. The case offers an impact-resistant soft core, with a “water resistant soft tactile grip material”. There is a dedicated Apple Pencil holder, and the case also offers compatibility for charging as well.
Best of all, though, the UAG folio for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro meets military drop standards (MIL STD 810G 516.6), so it should keep on trucking along even if you drop the case from a relatively small distance.
The UAG folio for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is priced at $89.95. It’s available in Cobalt and Magma color schemes.
The rooCASE attaches to the iPad Pro with magnets in the back cover. That design keeps everything low profile, with no bezels or bulky sections on the side of the iPad Pro. It offers only a couple of different viewing angles, and features a high grade synthetic leather exterior.
The thin rooCASE, which also features support for the iPad Pro auto Wake/Sleep functionality, is priced at $26.99. It’s available in Black, Gray, and Red colors.
The Ztotop brings the premium design to the larger 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The folio case boasts a premium synthetic leather exterior and a soft microfiber interior. It has a dedicated Apple Pencil holder, but it also supports wireless charging for the stylus as well. It has a built-in leather hand strap and an organizer pocket.
The Ztotop folio case supports the iPad Pro’s auto Wake/Sleep functionality, and precise cutouts for the rear camera, speakers, and the USB-C port. It offers three different viewing angles as well.

The ProCase, like the other folio cases, also supports Apple’s auto Wake/Sleep functionality for when the owner opens or closes the case. The ProCase also supports wireless charging with the Apple Pencil.
This folio is available Grey, Brown, and Navy color options. Prices start at $22.99 and go up to $26.99.
Apple Smart Folio
The smart folio case from Apple is pricey, but it does offer a case that covers both the front and back of the iPad Pro when the case is closed. It supports the auto Wake/Sleep functionality, and keeps a low profile on the tablet without covering the rear camera, the USB-C port, or the speakers.
The smart folio from Apple offers a couple of different viewing angles, and is available in two colors: White and Charcoal Gray. It’s priced on Amazon for $99.99 in most cases, but at the time of publication the digital storefront has discounted the smart folio down to as low as $91.99.
