Best Waterproof iPad Case

Updated on June 25, 2010

Buy a Waterproof iPad Case

If you're a beach lover or you find yourself in wet situations, you should definitely have a waterproof case, or at least a water resistant case for your iPad. There aren't that many options to choose from, so you won't have to search through pages and pages of iPad cases.

These cases are waterproof, which means they will protect your Apple iPad if it's caught in the rain or gets splashed at the pool, but I wouldn't expect to be able to use your iPad when swimming in the ocean or at the bottom of the pool. I'm not sure how well that'll work out, but in basic situations of splashes and a little rain, you'll be fine.

You do want to be careful to understand waterproof and water-resistant.

  • Water proof means that the case is unaffected by water penetration, protecting the iPad as best as it can in wet situations.
  • Water resistant means that the case will repel water from damaging the iPad, but only under short periods of time.

 Do make sure that you understand the different between waterproof cases and water resistant cases. Resistant means don't soak the case or let it sit in rain or water for extended periods of time. Water proof means that a little longer is safe, but again I wouldn't suggest submerging the case with your iPad in it for extended periods of time.

Below, you'll find the best water proof iPad case, as well as the best water resistant iPad cases.

TrendyDigital WaterGuard Waterproof iPad Case

This water proof case may not be the most appealing, but you will find that it does the job well. TrendyDigital created this iPad case specifically for the Apple iPad. It will provide optimum protection against water, dirt, and just about anything else.

The case is great to use when you're going on vacation to the beach or even if you're just searching the internet at the dinner table. This case will provide great protection.

The TrendyDigital iPad case may look awkward, but you can still use your Apple iPad without any problems. You may have a little trouble accessing the ports, but the keyboard and navigation interface is easy to work with through the case. The case comes with a thin strap that you can use, if you want to.

If you're an avid beach-goer or your climate typically calls for rain, then you'll definitely want to purchase one of these iPad cases.

It comes in two varieties. One has a blue border and the other has a purple border.

Water Resistant iPad Case

There are many water resistant iPad cases. Typically, these are made of a durable neoprene material. Depending on how the neoprene was woven and constructed, the material becomes very dense, making it slightly more water resistant than other iPad cases.

Don't expect all neoprene iPad cases to be water resistant, so make sure to read the description carefully.

Below, you will find several options of water resistant cases for the Apple iPad.

There are just a few waterproof cases, but you will find a few more options in regards to water resistant sleeves. Check out the different colors and options before you purchase a sleeve or case. Consider the features such as the color and patterns, external pockets, material construction, zipper strength and functionality (dual zipper or single, hidden zipper, etc.), handles, straps, internal lining, shock absorbing bumpers and padding, and just about anything else that you may be looking for in a case.

Fix iPad Water Damage

If your Apple iPad gets wet in a non-water proof case or your water resistant case gets soaked, you want to follow the directions below to fix your iPad water damage.

  • Don't touch any buttons
  • Don't turn the iPad on, if it's off.
  • Take the iPad out of the case, if it's in one, and shake out any extra water
  • Use a blow dryer to dry out as much of the water as you can.
  • Gently shake the iPad again to remove any other water, or continue to use the hair dryer on a low heat setting to dry out the iPad.
  • Put the iPad in a bag of rice for about 2 to 3 days to finish drying out.
  • After about 4 to 5 days, try to turn on the iPad to see if it works. You may have to charge it before it'll turn on.

If the iPad doesn't work, you may be able to call Apple support for further assistance, but more than likely you'll just have to buy another one.
