The MagEZ Case doesn’t wrap fully round all 4 sides of the pill as a result of it’s designed for use together with the Apple Magic Keyboard and Sensible Keyboard.

Pitaka’s case is so slim you don’t must take away it while you shut both of Apple’s keyboard instances. There’s simply sufficient further room inside.
However there’s an exception: the 2021 iPad Professional 12.9 is barely thicker than its predecessor, however the brand new pill nonetheless matches within the variations of Apple’s keyboard instances designed for the 2018/2020 iPad Professional.
