Popular mobile device protective accessory maker OtterBox today announced two new uniVERSE cases for the iPad Pro 9.7-inch and the iPad Air 2. The company’s uniVERSE Case System consists of unique modular cases that allow different accessories to be attached to the device in a secure and convenient manner. UniVERSE cases have been available for iPhones for some time now, but OtterBox is now expanding its lineup with two new additions for Apple tablets. The company is collaborating with many different partners in a bid to bring a host of new, modular accessories to Apple smartphones and tablets.

Along with the two uniVERSE cases for iPad, OtterBox also unveiled a plethora of new accessories/modules to work with the cases, including an aluminum keyboard by Brydge for the 9.7-inch iPad, a GPS spike laser measurement tool, a portable air monitor, and a Bluetooth tracker that lets you find keys, devices, and other valuables easily. Since the uniVERSE Case System has been available for iPhone 6 and iPhone 7 models for some time now, many of the announced accessories were aimed at Apple’s smartphones, instead at the two tablets. A full list of all the accessories revealed at CES is available below.
OtterBox’s two uniVERSE cases also add a bit of rigidity to Apple’s slim tablets, but they are not meant to protect the devices from severe drops, water, or any of the elements for that matter. However, both should provide enough protection against bumps, small drops, and other types of shock that day-to-day mistakes may inflict on prized possessions of the electronic variety.
Availability and pricing for the cases and accessories is soon to be announced.
