    Hi all,

    Are there any reviews of ipad mini cases? I'm happy to be linked to an older forum posts. I received my ipad mini 2 as a gift last year and would like some protection for it.

    I've always heard that ipad screen gets scratched easily. I suspect its important to get something to protect the screen as well as the case.

    I did some basic searches but didn't come up with anything specific.

    Welcome to iPad Forums!

    There's a forum with threads about accessories for the iPad Mini, as part of this forum:
    iPAD MINI Accessories

    I'm sure you'll find some useful advice in one of the threads.
    Hope that helps.

    Hi Phil - you've already received a link from Johanna about Mini accessories - I'm just curious who told you that the iPad screen scratches easily? The glass on these screens is made by Corning and is called 'Gorilla Glass' (check the link & image below) and is quite scratch resistant - wife and I have had 4 iPads (two each) and she has an iPhone - we've always had 'smart covers' on the iPads but have never had a scratch - her phone has only a back cover and the glass screen looks new (and keep in mind how many people keep phones in their back pockets w/o front protection) - we also have never used lucent screen protectors (just a waste of time & money in my opinion - others will disagree).

    Just replaced wife's old Mini w/ a Mini 4 and bought the case below (2nd image) - works like an Apple 'smart cover' but was much less expensive - hope that you find a suitable cover and/or case for your new iDevice - good luck; there are plenty of choices. Dave :)
