With an initial look and feel as you’ve seen above, this synthetic leather case snaps to the back of your iPad Pro 9.7. The smart front cover flips around to become a stand and the trick up this case’s sleeve (pun not intended) is that it allows your iPad to swivel 360 degrees of display orientation.

This UAG folio is military drop tested for the ultimate protection of your iPad Pro 9.7. The tough shell is matched by a screen cover that flips out to make a stand, or just detaches for ease of use.
