I've been using Otterbox products since the iPhone 3. When I bought a new iPad Pro 9.7, I immediately bought a new otterbox iPad case. My old otterbox iPad case was bulky and round, but did all it was suppose to do. This new case is extremely thin and lightweight. The case allows for amazing sound from all 4 iPad speakers and protects the camera while allowing it to work perfectly. No issues with the flash or quality. The case allows you to use the Touch ID should you choose to do so. I also use the ipencil daily. I was a little worried about the screen protector causing problems with the pencils ability to be accurate or cause some offset when writing or drawing. But there are no issues at all. Works great. When you first use the pencil over the screen protector. There will be some areas that want to "grab" the pencil. In other words, the ipencil will glide smoothly and then hit an area where it doesn't want to move as easily. But all of these areas went away after a few days of using the otterbox. The screen protector will have a watery look when the iPad is not on but you see none of this when using the iPad. It's just part of having a built in screen protector which is a must have.
Now like any new otterbox case, it can be a little hard to open the first time you open it. But look at the directions included and it is simple once you realize what to do. Once the iPad is in, it's a very secure fit. The hard shell cover that comes with the case is great. It adds protection when packing your iPad for travel and has a built in stand for watching videos. Truly a great feature.
Members of my family also have iPads but didn't want to pay the money when there were budget cases available. Those cases all failed in short order. There is no question otterbox is the best when it comes to protecting your electronics. I've used otterbox cases since the iPhone 3 and iPad 2. They are rock solid and worth every penny.
