Will old iPad Air / mini cases fit the new models?

The new ones Air and mini iPads They are already for sale in Brazil. And in many cases, users of new tablets that have past-generation cases can, of course, try to reuse these accessories in new models. But does everything fit perfectly?

iPad mini

Looking at just the measurements, the new iPad mini is basically identical to its predecessor (mini 4) and a little different from the mini 3. So if you have a mini 3 case at home and wanted to use it on the new 7.9 β€³ tablet from Apple, you can put that idea aside.

Now if you have an iPad mini 4 case at home, you can use it on the new model with a few caveats. This is because, although the measurements are the same and all buttons are located in the same places, the new mini has slightly larger volume buttons, which can be a problem for some case models. In addition, the microphone on the new tablet has been repositioned and, depending on the case, it may become clogged.

iPad Air

The iPad Air is a different case because, despite keeping the same name, we are talking about a tablet with a design quite different from previous models.

The third generation tablet is longer and wider than its predecessors, being even thinner than the current sixth generation 9.7-inch iPad. So no iPad Air (first and second generation) and 9.7 inch iPad (fifth and sixth generation) cases will fit the new tablet.

Now if you have a 10.5-inch iPad Pro case, you can reuse it on the new device as they are the same size. There is only one detail in this story: while the old Pro had narrow speakers (total of four), the new Air has the traditional combination of speakers at the bottom. This, however, does not create a docking problem or anything of the kind, just aesthetic.

New cases for sale

For those who enjoy the new iPads and are already having fun with one, be aware that Apple has also launched new cases to accompany the devices.
