UAG Plyo Series Review: A Rugged, Stylish Case for the 6th-Gen iPad

I've used and recommended Urban Armor Gear iPhone cases for years. They are the right mix of rugged protection and cool style. UAG sent me the Plyo Series iPad Case ($69.95) to review and it offers the same rugged protection as the iPhone cases. It protects all around the edges, including the ports, and has a cover lined with microfiber that keeps the screen clean.

The case has magnets, too, to keep the cover shut and to support the iPad's auto wake/sleep function. The case also has an elastic holder for a stylus such as the Apple Pencil. It's only available in one color option, black with a smoke gray translucent shell. The corners have extra padding as well.


  • Rugged protection all around
  • Rubbery grip
  • Stylus holder
  • Magnets for secure closure and auto wake
  • Microfiber screen cover


  • One color option
  • Keyboard not included

Final Verdict

If you like Urban Armor Gear's rugged styling for your iPhone case, you'll appreciate the Plyo Series iPad Case for your iPad.
