Apple designs are, without a doubt, some of the best in the industry. But as many iPad Air and iPad Air 2 users know, Cupertino’s tablets can get pretty banged up from everyday use, hence the need for a protective case.
Thankfully, the LifeProof NÜÜD offers protection for your iPad Air 2 against the elements. “The NUUD case is designed to protect against water, dirt and falls,” according to The Gadgeteer. The case is reportedly comes with watertight gaskets “that seal to the glass” but still allow users to interact with the tablet via touchscreen input.

As per the LifeProof website, the NÜÜD “is the sleekest, slimmest, smartest tablet case ever made.” It is completely submersible up to 6.6 feet and can survive four-foot drops. Despite the high level of protection it offers, the NÜÜD’s sleek profile and clear back doesn’t cover up the iPad Air’s design.
The LifeProof NÜÜD is available via the LifeProof website for $129.99.
In other iPad news, the rumored 12.9-inch “iPad Pro” will reportedly get split screen multitasking. First planned for release last year, the feature could finally go public with the super-sized tablet. “With the split screen capability, users can run applications simultaneously and also view them both at the same time, without having to switch from one app window to another,” according to Vine Report.
Citing unnamed sources, 9to5Mac reports that Apple is already testing the feature on “jumbo-sized iPads” known inside the company as “J98” and “J99.” These devices are supposedly larger version of the Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi + Cellular iPad Air 2 models albeit with additional speaker holes.
Previous “iPad Pro” rumors suggest that the super-sized tablet could come with Force Touch, an NFC chip and two Lightning ports, two USB Type-C ports, or a combination of the two. A next-gen A series processor could power it as well.
Apple has kept release date, specs and other details on the “iPad Pro” under wraps so far.
