The Approach We Took for Testing

We tested the latest accessories for the iPad Pro 12.9 in a variety of real-world scenarios: connecting and disconnecting them, writing on them, draping them over the back of my chair and my arm, and generally abusing them to see how they’d hold up over time. In addition to checking how ergonomically each accessory worked, we also used our data collection tools to track any changes in accuracy or precision between connected accessories and the pen that came with the iPad Pro itself.

Snugg iPad Pro 12.9 Case with Keyboard

Our Thoughts

The Snugg’s all-plastic design lacks the style and sensibility of our other picks, and its stiff keys are difficult to type on. But its price is unbeatable, and the build quality is fantastic for the price.

Our testers have used the previous version of this case for over a year, and it’s held up well despite regular travel. The case’s sturdy polycarbonate shell provides excellent protection for the iPad Pro, and it includes slots for cards, too. The keyboard is surprisingly pleasant to type on, and the 360-degree rotating design makes it easy to use in any position.

Unfortunately, the Bluetooth connection can be unreliable, and the keyboard lacks backlighting. But if you’re looking for a budget option, the Snugg is an excellent choice.

Our Thoughts

Our top pick for the best tablet accessories is the tomtoc Tablet Sleeve Bag for 12.9-inch New iPad Pro 2021-2018 with Magic Keyboard and Smart Keyboard Folio or Logitech Slim Folio Pro Case. It offers plenty of room for the largest tablet on the market, and it includes two well-placed external pockets for accessories.

We particularly like how the pockets are separated, so that you can keep the accessories you need to get at quickly—like a tablet charger and a tablet—separate from the things you don’t need as frequently—like an iPad pencil and a USB-C adapter—while still keeping everything well organized.

The tomtoc sleeve is also the most affordable option we tested. Although it’s not as protective as our upgrade picks, it’s still more protective than any other tablet sleeve we found.

If you’re looking for a simple option to hold your tablet and a few accessories, the tomtoc is the best choice we’ve found.

Smatree Hard Shell Carrying Case Compatible for 12-14 inch MacBook Pro 2021/13.3-13.6inch MacBook Air 2022-2018/12.9 inch iPad Pro/Surface Pro 8/X/7

Our Thoughts

The Smatree Hard Shell Carrying Case is designed to fit a variety of laptops and tablets, weighing up to 12 pounds. If you have a 12- or 13.3-inch MacBook Pro, Macbook Air, Macbook, or a 12.9-inch iPad Pro, it should fit in the case just fine.

Its exterior is made of hard, water-resistant material (like the kind used to make backpacks) that should protect your laptop from splashing water and rain. In addition, it has shock-absorbing foam to keep your laptop from getting jostled or shaken.

The Smatree’s interior has a soft pouch for your laptop and a separate compartment for accessories, making it easier to organize your gear. It has a carrying handle, and you can also adjust the detachable shoulder strap to your desired length.

The Smatree messenger bag is stylish, too, resembling a briefcase or professional tote. It’s the best option if you plan to carry a lot of gear around, as it has room for a laptop, tablet, mouse, keyboard, accessories, and more. We also like that it’s relatively compact and easy to carry, unlike some bulky laptop bags.

Apple Smart Keyboard for iPad (9th, 8th and 7th Generation) and iPad Air (3rd Generation)

Our Thoughts

The Apple Smart Keyboard is the easiest way to type on an iPad Pro because it uses the same basic layout as a full-size keyboard. It attaches magnetically, so you don’t have to worry about pairing it with your tablet.

As with most iPad accessories, it’s not the most compact option for travel—it’s about as thin as the newest iPad Pro models, but it folds in half and adds a little more heft. It’s also more expensive than most other iPad keyboard cases.

But the Smart Keyboard is far more functional than the Apple Pencil or the iPad Pro models’ built-in keyboards. It’s the one accessory we would recommend to anyone who wants to be able to type on an iPad Pro.

Ailun 2 Pack Screen Protector for iPad Pro 12.9 2020 4th & 2021 5th

Our Thoughts

The Ailun Screen Protector for iPad Pro 12.9″ (2020 & 2021 Versions) is our top pick because it protects the sensitive touchscreen of your tablet while preserving the clarity of the display. The tempered glass screen protector should fully protect the screen from scratches and drops, and its rounded edges provide a better grip than the flat screen protectors that other companies offer.

The screen protector has a smooth, hydrophobic (water-repellent) coating that resists smudges and fingerprints, and it’s easier to install than competitors. Unlike cheaper screen protectors, the Ailun’s screen protector doesn’t have air bubbles trapped between its layers, so it’s actually usable right out of the box.

What to Look for Before the Purchase

We looked for accessories that provided functionality not available on the iPad Pro, accessories that would improve our productivity and enhance our ability to work wherever we are. We also looked for accessories that were easy to use and portable.

After considering all of the above, we decided to focus on the following types:


A keyboard can make typing faster and more comfortable than using the onscreen keyboard. It’s also easier to copy and paste text between documents or apps by using a physical keyboard. A Bluetooth keyboard also allows you to type anywhere—you don’t need to be at your desk, next to your computer, or near a USB-C port.

Pen Accessories

The Apple Pencil is so good that it inspires other companies to try their own take on styli, some with multiple tips and features such as erasers or additional buttons.
