    OtterBox Defender Reviews

    Excellent iPad protection!

    By Bill

    I love the Otterbax Defender series of products. Yes, they are a bit bulky, but the point is to protect your expensive electronics and they do that very well. My phone gets dropped on concrete 3-4 times a week and I've never had a problem. I'll soon be using my iPad as part of my business and I'll likely drop it at some point as well. Two things about this design are a little wonky, but easy to live with since these cases are all about protection. The case for the iPad is bulky, but the cover is just ridiculously bulky. Inside of the cover is a stand and a place to store your iPencil and this adds about 3/4 of an inch to the overall thickness of the case / cover combo. I seldom use the cover because of the added thickness. The other issue concerns the iPencil charging cover; it just doesn't work very well. If you don't use the iPencil it's fine as you just leave it on. I have removed it as I use the pencil a lot and it's significantly more convenient to keep the iPencil on the iPad, fully charged, but then the little "door" gets knocked off. Overall I'm extremely happy with this case / cover combo.

    For the twentieth time this year, I have dropped my iPad Mini and it survived each and every time! If you care about your investment of $800 for your iPad Mini, I highly recommend that you invest in this helmet for your equipment! Nothing worse than buying a cheap case for an expensive piece of electronic equipment - SPEND THE $89 and breathe easy every day knowing that OtterBox is going to protect your iPad even if you don't!

    Awesome Protection

    Little heavy for a lot of people especially my 84 year old mom. The charging port is hard for her to install or remove charging cable. We had to take off hard plastic stand. I am confident when she drops iPad it will survive the drop. I would not buy this again for elderly person but I would buy for myself in a heartbeat Before COVID I would be able to exchange for different cover

    Best Protective Case 2021 ipad

    After much searching around and watching hundreds of YouTube review videos on the Otterbox Defender case for the ipad 12.9" Pro 2021 5th Generation I found out that there are two versions of this case on the market. The newer screenless version and this one which includes a built in screen protector. This one, in my opinion is the better of the two. And B&H Photo is the only place that actually has it in stock!! Trust me I did look around. I'm pretty sure that the other version without the built in screen protector is also really good because they are designed and built the same exact way, with the exception of one having a screen protector and the other not having one. Installing the iPad 12.9" Pro 2021 5th generation was pretty easy. There are many YouTube videos that can assist you with this. The cover that comes with the case also has a built in stand and the cover acts as a protector for the screen of the iPad when not in use. The case is not that bully to be honest and honest he moment you put your iPad into it you will feel an immense sense of satisfaction. The iPad Pro is a pretty expensive device so you want this Otterbox Defender case over anything else law on the market

    This case not only protects the iPad, it keeps the on/off switch from being pressed when the iPad is in tight quarters. My only complaint is the lack of video or written instructions from OtterBox on how to take apart the case and then reassemble it on the pad. It is not easy with a new, tight fitting case nor especially intuitive.

    As soon as I purchase a new device, I order an Otterbox because it protects my phone and iPad for years. I’m on my second generation of Otterbox purchases and I’m never disappointed.

    Does this item fit the older iPad Pro (A1673) from 2016?
    Asked by: Jan
    No. The "OtterBox Defender Smartphone Case for Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max" will not fit any iPad ever made, that I was able to find on the Internet just now. Specifically, by referencing an Apple support page for "iPad Pro (A1673) from 2016", I'm seeing that it had a 9.7 inch diagonal screen. The iPhone 12 Pro Max, released in autumn of 2020, has a diagonal screen measure just under seven inches. This OtterBox case made for that iPhone, would clearly not accommodate anything with a 9.7 inch diagonal screen spec.
