Looking for case with a strap for your student or client’s iPad?
Past searches for iPad cases with attachable shoulder straps provided limited choices in my experience. A recent search for a cases with strap options for clients using iPad for communication or access to organization, text or object recognition tools found a few more options for current tablets. It is exciting to have such choices available, as long as you match your device with the correct case!
Here are some cases with attachable shoulder straps currently available for the iPad Pro 9.7, iPad, iPad 9.7 (2017 edition) and iPad 10.5. Make sure you know what iPad you have for appropriate fit of the case and ports. The back of you iPad offers you your model number in the small print below “iPad” label. A recent Livewire post dated 9/28/2017 also provides a nice list and info on iPad model numbers. Here’s a quick list of current iPad model numbers to help determine if the case will fit your device:
- iPad 10.7 Pro 2017 model number (Wi-Fi model) : A1701
- Pad 2017 model number (Wi-Fi model) : A1822
