Thought it was coming with the screen protector like my other case. It did not. Also no instructions on how to install it. Ended up breaking the case because the instructions online were for a whole different case. Returning.

Hello! We apologize for any confusion. The Defender Series Pro case for the iPad Air is screenless by design to allow it to pair perfectly with any of our screen protection options for the device. However, our original Defender Series case is available with a built in screen. Installation videos can also be found on our website. If our Customer Service Team may assist with any questions, please give us call at 1-855-688-7269 and we are happy to help.

I was so disappointed with this case. Usually OtterBox makes the best cases, but this one was not good at all. First of all the quality was not on par. The Apple Pencil door never stays on correctly. The rubber on back of the case was not firm. And so many more issues. I’m definitely planning returning it.

Loving my iPad even more with this case! I have an Amazon screen protector with the case (fits perfect). I’ve been using the otterbox stand that came with the case for everything. Yes, the case is bulky and makes it a bit heavy but it’s better than possibly breaking your iPad with a cheap case.

I’ve never not had an Otterbox with any of my iPads or iPhones in the past. I should’ve listened to other reviewers that said this one falls short. It feels cheap. Lots of rough edges and sharp seams. Using it for a length of time is rough on the hands. Sounds ridiculous but you’ll see if you get one. I might try to file down some of these sharp parts. Even after just putting it on, my hands are a bit raw. Maybe I just got a bad one and the others are made a bit better but don’t know. The little pencil door is useless. Doesn’t easily open or close. That all said, it’s still probably a lot more protective than most cases out there. Just wish they’d have gone with a similar design to their past successful cases.

Hello! We're sorry to hear about your damaged device. Our cases are very protective, but some variables can't be predicted. We're happy to send a new OtterBox under our product warranty, but we are unable to extend our warranty to the device itself, as we are not the manufacturer. Give us a ring at 1-855-688-7269 with any additional questions, or if you'd like a new case.

Love this OtterBox Defender case for my iPad. It’s Perfect! At first, I thought I had problems with this case. But then after I used it for a day or two. I realized that it’s a lot better than I thought. I have no problems at all with it. I actually like it and I’m glad I got it over any other case. I’ve been using OtterBox Defender on my phone for a long time and I do really prefer your case to any other. It is the best and safest. I like everything about this case. Thank you OtterBox.

So sorry to hear about the installation troubles you've had with the Defender Series Pro case for your iPad Air (4th gen). Were you able to separate the case into three pieces before applying it to your device? We'll provide a link to one of our installation videos for you below that we hope helps. Please don't hesitate to give our customer service team a call at 1-855-688-7269 with any other questions or concerns. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7OXDeax6Sp0 Cheers, OtterBox Customer Support

Don’t like the way this one is designed. I’m a long time user of Otterboxes and the way this one has the gaps is just weird.
1 reply from Customer Service Support team - 10 months ago
So sorry if the Defender Series Pro case for your iPad Air (5th/4th gen) isn't quite what you were hoping for. We specifically designed this case to be seamlessly compatible with the unique features of your exact device, so we're unsure what you mean when you mention "gaps" within the case. We'd like to dig a bit deeper into this in order to better understand what's going on here though. Please give our friendly Otters a ring at 1-855-688-7269 and they'd be more than happy to help find the best path forward for you. Cheers, OtterBox Customer Support

Very durable, with regard to drops, especially when adding a tempered glass screen protector. I agree with some of the other reviewers with regard to angles of the iPad sitting in the cover. Too vertical/horizontal at its native settings. The pencil charging cover is a poor design. Hopefully in successive models, Otterbox will improve on both of these.

Hello there! We're glad to hear that you can trust our Defender Series Pro case to help keep your iPad Air safe and sound. We are sorry to hear that you are having some issues with the stand feature on this case, however. We appreciate this feedback, and will be sure to pass it along to the correct teams for you. In the meantime, we would love to see if there is anything that we can do to help turn this issue around for you. Just give us a ring at 1-855-688-7269 and one of our awesome Otters will get you taken care of. Best, OtterBox Customer Support

I got this present for my parent's in law. Otterbox has been protecting my cell phones and iPads for over a decade - glad to continue it by this rugged case for my parent's in law. It has an elegant yet rugged look and feels secure. Most importantly, I know that from rigorous testing, and our own field testing of the one that we have had on our IPAD, that it will continue to protect!

Compared to older models, they’ve dropped the ball

2 out of 5 stars
John Everyman - 1 year ago
originally posted on otterbox.com
I picked this case up after having my old 5th gen iPad in the older version of this case for many years. I wasn’t really expecting the case to be better, but i did expect it to be at least as good as the older one. Although the flap for the charging port is still stiffer than it needs to be, and the compartment where the Apple Pencil is meant to charge does leave something to be desired, the outer shell that doubles as the stand is where this new case absolutely drops the ball. They both allow the tablet to be in two positions, but someone decided to make this new one sit at an un-usable steep angle rather than “laptop screen position” of the older case… Absolutely ridiculous.
1 reply from Customer Service Support team - 1 year ago
Hey there! We're so sorry to hear that this Defender Series Pro case wasn't what you were expecting, especially considering you've been such a big fan of this case in the past. We're constantly working to improve our cases with each new release, so your feedback on the charging port door, Apple Pencil holder, and shield stand is definitely appreciated. As far as that stand goes, there are actually a few different positions you can place it in for whichever viewing you find most convenient and comfortable. We'll provide a link to a video below that we hope helps show those possible positions. Please don't hesitate to give our friendly Otters a buzz at 1-855-688-7269 with any questions or concerns though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQl2GudFjXc Warm regards, OtterBox Customer Support

Hey there! First of all, we're happy to hear you've found the Defender Series Pro case to be sturdy in keeping your device safe. We want to apologize for any frustration caused by that pencil tray though. If that piece falls out of place, you should be able to just pop it back in. We appreciate you sharing this feedback with us and we'll be sure to let our team know your thoughts. If you're unable to locate that pencil tray, please give our CS team a call at 1-855-688-7269 and they'd be happy to work with you to find the best path forward for you. Warm regards, OtterBox Customer Support

Coming from a previous Defender series to this on was a little bit of a let down, there is no clear plastic cover for the screen as previous versions had. Otherwise it seems to be sturdy like the previous Defender cases. Shipping was BERY SLOW!…. It shipped via UPS to the USPS for delivery. UPS did great as it arrived in my town in 2 days. Then it sat in the USPS office for over 10 days before it was delivered to my house.

We're sorry to hear that you're not loving your Defender Series case. Our engineers removed the built-in screen protector from our Defender Series case to ensure complete functionality with the newest devices. Our engineers redesigned our Defender Series in order to provide the same drop protection even without the built-in screen protector. The addition of the Alpha Glass/Amplify/Alpha Flex provides your phone with premium protection and outperforms our previous Defender Series designs. If you have any other questions, we would love to chat! Give us a ring at 1-855-688-7269.

Not as good as they used to be

2 out of 5 stars
dbeltz713 - 1 year ago

I have had this case for about six months now and it is not as good as the past Otterbox cases I have used. My daughter previously had an iPad from 2015 and we used the Otterbox Defender for the entire time. It never broke, never had the screen scratch, and it stood the test of time for her from ages 3-8. We decided to upgrade for her to the iPad Air and the obvious choice was to go with the Otterbox again. About six months later, on a Friday the 13th no less, the iPad bent while inside the Otterbox. She is 9 years old now, and is much more careful with her devices. This happened from the iPad sitting on the back seat of a car when the seat was folded down. The external screen did not crack, but apparently there is an underlying screen that did. The iPad is now not useable, and I feel like the case did not do its job in protecting the iPad. This case does still protect against drops, but now I am well aware of other requirements that I need from tablet cases.

While we are so happy to hear that your past experience with OtterBox has been awesome, we're saddened to hear that your recent experience has left you feeling less than happy. Our Defender Series case is known for it's sturdy, rugged nature, so this sounds like a very unusual situation. We're happy to send a new OtterBox case under our product warranty, but we are unable to extend our warranty to the device itself, as we are not the manufacturer.

I Purchased this item quite a while ago and within a month the latch that covers the recharging port broke which defeats the entire purpose of a waterproof case. I asked the company to return it and they would not allow it. Now a little while later Apple has told me the port is filled up with so much dirt it’s almost impossible to clean. So it recharges about 1/20 as fast as it should. I will never buy another item from this company
1 reply from Customer Service Team team - 1 year ago
We're very sorry to hear that you've had such a discouraging experience. If you purchased the Defender Series Pro case directly from us and were within 30 days of purchase then you should have been able to return the item for a full refund, unless there is some underlying circumstance that we're unaware of. Outside of that window, we'd have been more than happy to help get you set up with a brand-new warranty replacement case to address the damaged charge port cover. That's actually still an option if it holds any interest, though we understand your frustration lies deeper at this point. Unfortunately, our warranty won't be able to provide any assistance for your Apple device, but please do feel welcome to give us a call at 1-855-688-7269 if you would like us to set things in motion for a new case. Kindly, OtterBox Customer Service Team

Otterbox protection and quality that I expect. Got it on a good deal! I always trust this company to protect and take care of my gadgets whether it’s a phone or tablet. The only change is they removed the plastic protector that usually comes built in with their defender products.
