Did you buy the iPad mini? Congrats! Is it protected? Probably not. If the glass breaks, don’t worry, New York Computer Help is the best NYC iPad mini screen repair / replacement place for you. But, do you really need to be in that position? If you bought the standard Apple service’s Smart Cover, well, you have minimal protection. Sure, it covers the iPad mini and is a stand, but it’s hardly a protective measure.
The best protective case without feeling like a bulky tons of bricks is the Switcheasy Canvas iPad mini case. It has a nice grip to it which is needed with the smaller iPad mini. At $40, it looks great and gives your thicker protection than the Smart Cover. Sure, it’s not at an Ironman level like the Otterbox heavy-duty cases, but I look for a case that is protective and easy to function. This case does the trick.
