Best iPad Mini cases and covers

Looking for a new case for your iPad Mini? Check out these top cases available now or coming soon.

The iPad Mini isn't so new anymore, but new cases for it continue to arrive.

For now, anyway, a lot of case manufacturers have simply shrunken down the cases and covers they made for the standard-size iPad, which is now up to the fourth generation.

What's the best one? Very hard to say. The problem is that everybody has different tastes in cases. And, of course, some folks choose not to bother with them at all.

In doing this roundup I've tried to present a good selection of products, highlighting some of the top cases that have been released, as well as some of the better bargain cases for people who don't want to spend a lot of money.

As always, if you have any cases you'd like to recommend (or don't care for), please add your 2 cents in the comments section. I should also point out that not all the cases in the roundup are available quite yet, though they should be soon.

Editors' note: This post was updated February 11, 2013, to add three new products, including cases from Speck and Mapicases. The list is in alphabetical order, not by ranking. If you don't agree with our choices or feel we missed some, please submit a comment, and I'll consider making changes in my next update of the list.
