Apple iPad Air 2 Smart Case

  • RRP: £79, US$79

Despite the fact that you can no longer buy the iPad Air 2 from Apple (it's been replaced by the new iPad, although you can still pick up a refurbished iPad Air 2 if you'd like to), you can still get hold of Apple's own iPad Air 2 case, called the Smart Case.

The iPad Air 2 Smart Case is made with dyed leather available in black, red or midnight blue. It covers the front and back of the iPad, with the front potion able to automatically wake up your iPad and put it to sleep when you close it, as well as act as a stand.

We think it's a bit on the pricey side though, but there are plenty of alternatives to suit your budget.

Belkin Qode Ultimate Keyboard Case for iPad Air 2

  • RRP: £149.99, US$149.99

If you're looking for more functionality for your iPad Air 2 case then the Belkin Qode Ultimate Keyboard Case could be just for you. It's made with aluminium alloy, and covers the front and back of your iPad Air when carried around in a bag.

The built-in stand offers multiple viewing angles, and the QWERTY keyboard includes some dedicated iPad specific shortcut keys. Plus, the keys are backlit, and the cover can be removed if you're not planning on using the keyboard for a while (if you're presenting in a meeting, perhaps).

It's available in white/silver or black.

Everything Tablet Luxury Leather Flip Case for iPad Air 2

  • RRP: £49.99

We've been fans of Everything Tablet since its early days of the 360-degree case, and now the company has launched a luxury range for those looking for something a bit more stylish.

The Luxury Leather Flip case for iPad Air 2 is made with genuine leather and soft Alcantara lining, and offers a multi-angle stand, too.

It's available in grey, navy, pink, white and yellow.

Logitech Blok iPad Air 2 Shell

  • RRP: £29.99, US$39.99

There are three varieties of Logitech's iPad Air 2 case, the Blok Shell, Blok with built-in kickstand, and the Blok with built-in kickstand and detachable Bluetooth keyboard, so there should be something to suit everyone there.

It's designed to save your iPad even if you drop it from six feet directly onto concrete, no matter how it lands, thanks to square corners with extra-absorbent polymers.

We wouldn't advise testing that theory, but you can rest assured that your iPad is in safe hands with the Blok.

It's available in Black or Blue, and starts at the much more affordable price of £29.99.

Casemade iPad Air 2 Thin Case

  • RRP: £39.90, US$51

Casemade’s Thin Case for the iPad Air 2 is a great option for those looking to protect their iPad while not compromising too much on its lightweight, thin design.

It's an Italian cowhide leather iPad Folio case that feels soft to the touch, and will age over time. It has a soft interior to protect the tablet further, too.

Its design allows for full access to all ports, negating any need to remove the iPad from the case, and it supports Apple's sleep/wake functionality.

That, coupled with the ability to turn the case into a stand with two viewing angles makes Casemade’s Thin Case an attractive choice.

Nodus Access Case for iPad Air

  • RRP: £89.99, US$145.79

For a bit of sophisticated luxury, Nodus offers the gorgeous Access Case for iPad Air 2, which is made with a leather exterior and a microfiber interior. There's a pocket for storing papers and cards, and the case can double as a stand.

The iPad Air 2 is attached to Nodus Access Case using micro-suction technology rather than plastic clips or housings, so looks super sleek.

STM Studio for iPad Air 2

  • RRP: £39.99, US$44.95

STM's Studio case for iPad Air 2 uses a patented magnetic closure to keep your tablet secure, wrapping all the way round the iPad for extra protection. The magnets in the front cover also double as a sturdy and versatile stand that can be positioned in various angles, including portrait.

The case is available in orange, black and purple.

Inateck iPad Air 2 Felt Sleeve & Stand

  • RRP: £26.99, US$36.99

Inateck's iPad Air 2 case is a soft but durable grey felt slip case that protects the tablet in transit, but requires you to remove the tablet when you want to use it.

Cheaper than many rival cases, it may well be all you need to keep your iPad Air 2 looking smart and safe from bumps and scrapes. It will also fit an original iPad Air.

A leather clasp attaches via a magnetic buckle to hold the iPad Air 2 snug inside the case, or you can fold it around to create a makeshift stand.

Maroo Woodland Folio Case for iPad Air 2

  • RRP: £39.95, US$39.95

The Maroo Woodland case for iPad Air 2 is both gorgeous and sturdy, thanks to its lovely minimalistic design made with synthetic leather and dark woolenfelt combined with its patented SG Bumper Technology.

We've seen iPads in Maroo cases flung through the air from a catapult and survive without so much as a scratch (although we wouldn't recommend you try this at home!).

It offers two viewing angles, too, a low angle for typing and an upright stand for videos or FaceTime.

Case-Mate Tuxedo Case for iPad Air 2

  • RRP: £39.99

Case-Mate's Tuxedo case fits both the iPad Air 2 and iPad Pro 9.7in protecting it from bumps and scratches whilst providing a sturdy stand.

It's slim and sleek, available in black, and snaps onto the tablet, with a cover for the front too that's lined in microfiber.
