Which iPad does Rugged Folio work with?
Rugged Folio was designed specifically for iPad Pro 11-inch (2nd gen), but is also compatible with iPad Pro 11-inch (1st gen). The only difference when using the Rugged Folio on an iPad Pro 11-inch (1st gen) is that the camera opening on the back of the case is larger than the camera itself. Rugged Folio is not compatible with iPad Pro 11-inch (3rd gen) yet.
Yes, Rugged Folio easily folds into a kickstand. Hidden magnets in Rugged Folio keep the kickstand locked in place.
Do the magnets in Rugged Folio interfere with the function of iPad Pro?
No, the magnets in Rugged Folio do not interfere with the function of the iPad Pro. iPad Pro was designed by Apple to interact with magnetic features of its cases. For example, the smart wake and sleep functionality is achieved by the specific placement of magnets in the folio cover.
Will the leather change over time?
Our Horween leather is vegetable-tanned, imbued with natural waxes and oils, and the surface is not sprayed with a synthetic sealant, allowing it to develop a beautiful patina. For best care, use a quality leather conditioner. Learn more
How are our cases different from other leather cases?
The Horween leather used in our cases is made in the traditional style dating back to 1905. Most leathers use synthetic tanning chemicals, synthetic dyes, spray paints and spray sealants to make a "perfect" surface. We don't think modern leathers are perfect. After so many synthetic treatments, it is hardly leather at all. We love real, old style American leather.
Will the leather scratch?
Designed with American leather that will scuff and mark. If you always want a perfect finish, this is not the case for you. But, if you are after the perfect authentic leather patina, this is absolutely the case for you.
How should I care for my case's leather?
Watch our instructional video below on caring for your leather. We recommend using leather conditioner made by Ashland Leather Co.
Rugged Folio is compatible with iPad Pro’s smart wake and sleep functionality, automatically waking when opened and sleeping when closed. A subtle design detail that makes Rugged Folio feel magical.
We source this leather from the renowned Horween Leather Co. of Chicago, one of America’s oldest tanneries. Over time, the raw, vegetable tanned leather will patina, developing a look that is exclusively yours. From day 1 to 100, your case will weather but not wear out, creating a handsome, rich character unique to you.
Kick Back and Enjoy
Rugged Folio folds back into a kickstand and over a dozen magnets lock it perfectly into place. This positions iPad Pro upright into an ideal angle for watching videos, FaceTiming, or reading. Add an external keyboard and mouse for full pro work mode.
There are 37 strategically placed rare-earth neodymium magnets throughout Rugged Folio. With these powerful, yet compact magnets, the entire folio flap is able to securely attach to both the front and back of the case, fold into kickstand mode, and effortlessly awaken or put iPad Pro to sleep.
