2017 9.7-inch iPad Smart Cover
The only official 9.7-inch iPad case is the iPad Smart Cover from Apple. This only protects the screen, but it is popular because it also acts as a stand. That's the "Smart" part of the cover.
You can use the new iPad Smart Cover to prop up the iPad in landscape orientation to watch a movie or use it to play a game and FaceTime. You can also use the stand to prop it up at a nice angle for typing.
The new iPad smart cover is available in five colors, including Product RED, and you can expect to see more colors added over time.
