UAG, or Urban Armor Gear, is a company that we’ve followed for quite some time. I’ve used their products on my own devices, and now the company is back with a new case for the iPad Pro. Dubbed Scout Series for iPad Pro, this case is compatible with the Smart Keyboard Folio, meaning that you’ll be able to enjoy Apple’s best typing experience while still keeping your tablet save and protected.

UAG’s Scout Series is compatible with Apple’s Smart Keyboard Folio

The Scout Series case from UAG is the company’s latest iPad Pro protection lineup. This rugged MIL-SPEC case offers compatibility with Apple’s Smart Keyboard Folio, a must for me. I love using Apple’s keyboard on my iPad when on-the-go, but sometimes wish there was a little more protection around the edges; this is exactly what UAG does here.

Never lose your Apple Pencil again

The Scout Series also offers a clip that provides added security to hold the Apple Pencil in place while it’s charging, so you don’t have to worry about it falling off. I’ve already lost an Apple Pencil once before when on a trip, and trust me, it’s never fun having to buy a second Pencil. This case would have prevented that, had I kept my iPad in it.
