iPad Pro 11 2021 cases – things to keep in mind
▸ The 2021 11-inch iPad Pro has the same dimensions, as well as the position of the camera, ports and buttons, as the 2020 model.
▸ However, the speakers have been moved to the center, both on top and bottom. Read the full explanation: Will my old case fit iPad Pro 11 2021?
▸ Make sure to check the producer’s description. Look for the text “compatible with iPad Pro 11 2021.” Also, look for the date the product was added to the store’s offer. If it was released in the recent weeks, it was surely designed for iPad Pro 11 2021 model.
▸ I have observed that some iPad Pro 11 2021 compatible cases still cover the speaker area – either to make the plastic frame more rigid or to achieve backwards compatibility.
▸ You can always buy the case designed for iPad Pro 11 2020 – if you can live with approximately 30% of the speakers being covered by the frame of the case.
▸ In the following list, you will see the cases that were tailored for the newest iPad Pro 11 model released in 2021 – the ones that solve the speaker cutout issue. There are still few customer reviews, but these cases are proven designs that worked very well with iPad Pro 11 2020.

MoKo tri-fold hard shell stand case
▸ Here is another tri-fold case – this time from a trusted case producer MoKo.
▸ MoKo is one of Amazon’s most popular tablet accessory brands, with average reviews regularly exceeding 4.5 stars.

▸ The hard shell keeps the device in place by just corner hooks. Thanks to that, most of the edges are left open, just like in Smart Folio cover.
▸ You can attach the Apple Pencil to the side, and it will start recharging. Please note, that the stylus is left unprotected.
▸ ESR Rebound case is available in six colors, including Space Gray, Black, and Sky Blue.
