The wait is over and we finally know that the new iPad is everything we hoped for. Each new generation of an Apple device is an advancement of functionality and performance while each new case we make is an evolution and improvement on what we've made before. Our latest Defender Series case for the new iPad is going to be the ultimate accessory for this amazing device and it is now available for pre-orders.

We've taken into consideration feedback from our customers, conducted extensive research and monitored usage habits to help inspire our design for this case.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it says on the box 30 May 2012
Verified Purchase
Have two young children who will have access to our iPad so I wanted something heavy duty that would withstand a knock or two accidental or tantrum induced!!!!!!
Following a morning of research I decided on the Otterbox over the Griffin heavy duty cover/case. I was hesitant following reviews suggesting that the protective screen cover affected usability so I ordered a protective screen cover too. In short I am sending the screen cover back. I haven't found any issues with usability whatsoever. The screen cover is thicker and noticeable but the iPad works just fine.

A few have mentioned issues with the home screen button which admittedly does require a bit of effort but this is far fro a two thumb job. It just requires a little extra effort than usual but please do not let that put you off. This is ideal for kid proofing our 'investment'. It would also suit Surveyors or construction site workers too due to its robustness. I cannot recommend this product highly enough.

The only word of warning is that it does change the look of the iPad, making it more robust and functional looking as opposed to being sleek and cool but I think all who are considering this will appreciate this fact.

I hope you find this review helpful. I am new to the world of iPad's and so this is my first experience, totally unbiased.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good protection but flawed design 4 April 2012
Not sure if the previous review relates to the Otterbox for the new iPad (iPad three etc) as the new version does incorporate a screen protector, which is its biggest let down.

I purchased the cover direct from Otterbox after Amazon informed a delay in the pre-ordered shipments. Arrived promptly and as reported certainly provides the utmost in protection.

The biggest change from the previous versions is the inclusion of the screen protector, this is built into the front panel and is a thickish layer of polycarbonate, the downside is this hugely affects the quality of the screen, which is the biggest bonus of the new iPad / iPad three. Text is now quite difficult to read at its native resolution, there is a distinct pattern in the laminate, best described as looking like chromatic noise in high ISO digital images.

Its a great shame, as this was one of the things that attracted me to the case after breaking the screen on a previous iPad. It certainly helps in the weather / dirt / sand sealing, but affects the screen to badly to warrant. Other point of note that although there is sealing plugs across all the other ports, the microphone on top, and speaker on bottom stay uncovered which seems odd, and kind of defeats the purpose?.

Last issue is the Home button requires a very solid press to work with the cover in place (its beneath a rubber "button") which again detracts.

If you need the ultimate in protection, then its still worth the investment, but not if the acuity of the screen is important. Obviously you can remove the screen protection prior to fitting (its held on by adhesive) and apply a standard adhesive screen protector which I may well try.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent protection, thoughtful design 10 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase
This is a robust case and the clip-on cover is a piece of great design, especially as it conveniently clips onto the back during use. I was dubious, but it does also work well as a stand; both for typing and for viewing. Sure, it bulks out your sleek iPad by 100% or more, but if you were bothered about that you wouldn't be looking at a case like this - it's already saved mine from potential damage after a child-induced two-foot fall.
It's not cheap, but worth every penny. Following the advice of another reviewer, I too removed the plastic screen protector - it's thick plastic, but it ain't gonna stop the screen smashing, and if the case gets a soaking there are plenty of other ways liquid can get in. Having used a matte MediaDevil screen protector for my phone, I chose the iPad version - I suspect a Retina edition will be released soon as it does seem to dull the amazing screen a little, but the texture provides a positive feedback when using a stylus on the screen and has scratched slightly, telling me I've saved some damage to the screen itself!

5.0 out of 5 stars All hail the OtterBox! 30 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase
My iPad 4 has been protected by my OtterBox now for several months and it is in the same mint condition as when I bought it. I'm very impressed with the level of protection it gives, particularly as there are no significant compromises. I love the rubberised feel, which gives brilliant grip and the screen protector is pretty good, don't get me wrong the protector is a bit like wearing a condom...you can have lots of fun without the risk of damage.

4.0 out of 5 stars Improved Spec 14 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
I bought my iPad 2 in 2011 and started out with the Otterbox Defender case straight away. However, two years later I found the original Otterbox casing was cracked and coming apart and the cover that clips on top (and is used as a stand) had one of the lugs snapped off. How this happened I'll never know because I have no memory of dropping it or of any rough treatment.

Anyway, I decided the time had come to replace the case and looking on Amazon I found the same case for 24.95 - a real bargain considering they cost over 40 - so I ordered one. It arrived promptly and I noticed some differences:

1. There's no need any more for a stick-on screen protector. There is one built in to the new version and it works a treat. It's crystal clear and very responsive.

2. The rubber surroundings on the original case have been replaced with a hard silicone which is more robust and feels better.

3. The design of the new case is slightly different to the old one in that there are some design changes and it appears to be more 'slip proof' with a different type of plastic. It also appears to have two magnets built into the lid section which I assume switch the screen off when fitted. The older version did not have this.

4. It's a snug fit and takes more effort to fit the lid than it did before but I think that's good.

5. Finally, there is unfortunately a down-side. The lugs inside the silicone case which connect to the on/off button and the volume have given me a problem. The lugs are hard (like the silicone) and the on/off switch had to be trimmed inside with a Stanley knife because it pressed permanently on the switch and wouldn't let me switch it off. The volume ones are also so 'proud' that they turn the volume up but won't let me turn it down.
