There are plenty of iPad cases available online, but the Zugu case stands out with its unique features and durable design. The in-built magnets ensure that the iPad sticks to any metal surface securely, and also enables 7 different positions for the magnetic stand. It can easily be called the best ipad case that money can buy. And, if you want a top-rated iPad, then you’ll need to check out our best iPads reviews.

Why We Like It – Zugu Case

The Zugu Case for the iPad is a protective bumper that not only offers top level drop protection, but also adds a number of useful features. It comes with a magnetic stand, an easy to open finger tab, and sleep/wake functionality. The case also houses an elastic pouch for the Apple Pencil.

  • Sleep/Wake function
  • Military Drop research protection
  • Adjustable magnetic stand with 7 angles
  • Will add some weight to the iPad


This iPad case from Zugu is suitable for the 9.7 iPad 2018/2017 or 5th/6th Gen, and the iPad Air 1. The case gets a Military drop evaluation Standards (MIL STD 810G 516.6) certification. It features an anti-slip external synthetic leather, and fiberglass internal construction. The magnetic kickstand allows the iPad to be used at 7 different angles. You could be flying on a plane, or sitting on the bed, but you will always find a comfortable position with this case. A simpler looking case would be the ESR Yippee Trifold Smart Case for iPad 9.7 5th/6th Generation.

The Zugu case works with several iPad models, but will not work with the iPad Pro and a few other newer variants. It has precise cutouts for the volume and Power buttons, along with symbols to tell you what’s what. The case features a soft microfiber interior to help keep your iPad clean, while the external gets a matte synthetic leather construction. The dual injection PC/TPU shell is a great protector that has a premium finish. If you like premium leather cases, then try out the Procase iPad 9.7 2018/2017 iPad Case instead.


In terms of value for money, the Zugu case offers more than what you pay for. The magnetic kickstand allows you to use the iPad in almost any position, and the overall construction ensures that the tablet can withstand some drops (please try not to though). The magnetic cover also enables auto sleep/wake functionality. If you use the Apple Pencil, then you can attach it to the case via the elastic pouch. Zugu even claims that it uses premium materials that are found in Mercedes Benz vehicles. We would suggest this case over the Procase iPad 9.7 Case for 5th/6th Generations.

Zugu Case Wrap Up

The Zugu Case can be used with several iPad variants, and you can check the model numbers to confirm if it fits. The case has an auto sleep/wake function, is Military drop evaluation, and features a highly useful magnetic kickstand. It does some weight to the iPad, but that’s not a deal-breaker. Zugu also provides a 1 year warranty on the case.
