Octavo Magnetic Case offers slim, luxurious protection for the iPad Pro

As my Apple World Today compadre, Steve, has said before, quality handcrafting and beautiful materials are always the hallmark of Pad & Quill’s Apple gear. The company’s two new US-made magnetic cases for iPad Pro are no exception.

The company is using traditional book bindery techniques to create the Octavo Magnetic Case for the iPad Pro. The unique feature: you can detach the tablet from the Magic Keyboard and protect it with a handsome book filled with magnets

Of course, such craftsmanship comes at a price. Handmade at Pad&Quill’s bindery in St. Paul, The Octavo Magnetic Case for the 11-inch iPad Pro (first and second generations) costs US$109.95 , and the version for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro (third and fourth generations) is $119.95. (If you need a keyboard compatible case, check out the $99.95 Copertina.) These prices get you a very thin, light (13 ounces) case that complements the iPad Pro’s form factor, a smart cover with a magnetic on/off feature, and a two-year warranty. 

Somewhat similar to Apple’s Magic or Smart Keyboard, you just place the table into the Octavo Magnetic Case, and it (to use a word Apple loves) “magically” aligns. You can fold the case back like a paperback, prop it on your lap, use it for FaceTiming, and more. Plus, you have access to all ports, and the case also includes a pocket option.

You can find less expensive cases for the iPad Pro. But if you want top-of-the-line quality, the Octavo Magnetic Case is hard to beat.
