The Smart Folio case is also thin, light and easy to magnetically attach and detach from the iPad Pro.
OtterBox Symmetry Series 360 Elite Case for iPad Pro
Name aside, this protective case is great, both beautiful and versatile. Like Apple’s own Smart Folio, the OtterBox Symmetry can prop up your tablet in many different positions, but unlike the Smart Folio, this case also offers some extra protection.
It covers the iPad Pro’s sides and back at all times, but despite that, you can still use it with an Apple Pencil 2, as it has a flap for storing it. If you value extra protection and wish to save a few bucks, you may be better off choosing this case over the Smart Folio.
