Product Description

Color: Black

Strong enough to pass the US Military 1.8-meter/6-foot drop test, the Belkin APEX360 Advanced Protection Case features a durable exterior and shock-absorbent frame that protect your iPad mini from damage. A clasp closure keeps the case shut tightly. The contoured outer shell is easy to grip, offering protection while minimizing bulk. The removable screen cover converts to a QuickStand for hands-free viewing, and grooves along the inside allow you to adjust your iPad mini to your preferred position.

A durable exterior and shock-absorbent frame protect your iPad mini from damage.

The protective screen cover can be removed and used as a stand for hands-free viewing.

Reinforced Frame Protects iPad mini From Drops Up To 6 Feet

The APEX360 Advanced Protection Case is designed with a durable, rubberized material to protect your iPad mini from extreme drops, bumps, and dings. Repeatedly subjected to US Military 1.8-meter/6-foot drop testing, this case is built to provide exceptionally strong protection. Protective ridges along the inner frame create insulating air pockets that absorb the shock of impact, so your iPad mini stays safe even when dropped. A clasp closure keeps the case securely shut, while the contoured comfort-grip design makes it easy to hold onto your iPad mini.

Protective Screen Cover Converts To QuickStand

The protective screen cover can be removed and used as a stand for hands-free viewing. The QuickStand supports both portrait and landscape modes, so you can read a book or watch a movie in your preferred view. Place the QuickStand on any surface, position your iPad mini in your chosen position, and the magnetic stand will automatically snap into place. The screen cover is also magnetically attached, so it's easy to put on and take off. Remove to use the case by itself, and then snap it back on before heading out the door.

AutoWake Magnets For Easy On And Off

AutoWake magnets wake up your iPad mini when you open the cover and turn it off when it's closed, prolonging the battery life.

Grooved Inner Lining For Comfortable Viewing Position

Position your iPad mini at the angle that suits you best. The inner lining of the case is set with grooves so you can adjust your tablet to your preferred viewing position. For comfort, the APEX360 case can fold backward to a low, ergonomic angle to ease stress on your wrists as you type on your touchscreen.

Compatible With The iPad mini

The Belkin APEX360 Advanced Protection Case for iPad mini is compatible with the iPad mini. It is available in both black and fuchsia.

Customer Questions & Answers

The case is light and very protective.
D-Ro
I really like the way it feels (the grip), and the fact that you can remove the cover easily and reattach it (via the magnet).
David Bass
The other issue is that the opening for the headphone jack isn't large enough for some headphone connectors.

Great case overall; every feature in the product description performs as advertised. I'm very satisfied.

I got my ipad mini retina a few days before the Apex360 arrived and I really enjoyed using the mini without a case. It's thin and light and a pleasure to hold. I was a little bit disappointed when I put the Apex360 on and it felt like the weight more than doubled. The case isn't light or thin, at least not compared with the ipad but I'm really pleased with it and I think it's a good trade off considering the protection and the stand feature. Even without a case, I found the mini to be just a bit too heavy and awkward to use one-handed for any length of time anyway.

Installation seemed easy but the sleep button didn't work properly. Took the case off and the plastic ring around the camera port popped out, but it was easy to replace. I re-installed making sure to press the button-side of the ipad into the case first and now the lock button works perfectly. UPDATE: Thought the camera ring fitment was causing the sleep button issue but after reading other reviews, my experience makes more sense. My sleep button has been working perfectly for months now so I'd encourage people to give the installation another shot because It didn't take much fiddling to get it lined up and fit properly.

The magnetic stand is really cool. The magnet is strong enough that I can open the cover and drag it around the ipad so that the stand is working in portrait mode and the magnet allows that repositioning without the cover/stand coming off of the case. I removed the cover/stand altogether once to read in bed, it's cool that it comes off but it lives on my ipad most of the time.

I thought about getting one of those wedge pillows but the stand works well in my lap.

As others have mentioned, it doesn't fit the iPad Mini Retina correctly. The sleep/wake button is constantly depressed. No amount of fiddling or removing pieces helped. Somehow the iPad remains usable so the case can still function. The rubber is nice to hold and the case works well as a gaming grip.

Too bulky, but the main issue is that the Sleep/Awake button is difficult/impossible to press and also periodically activates the button continuously prompting the device to attempt to turn off. Completely unusable. Tried several times taking the case on and realigning buttons. Removed cameral hole grommet, still nothing. Returned.

You can turn it off but when you turn it back on using the top "on" button. It turns on and off about six or more times before it hopefully turns on the ipad mini. You waste about five minutes doing this.

When you stick your headphones into the jack, the music does not come out of your headphones.

Both problems are solved if you take your ipad mini out of the protective case, but then you don't have the protection of the case.

This is an product engineering error, and to me, it is a deal breaker.
Don't buy this flawed product

Color Name: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
True, it's "only a case." But it can be difficult to find a case for your iPad that provides just the right protection, is not too bulky, is high enough quality to last, has a nice feel, can rotate to a variety of viewing angles, and has that intangible sense of "just right."

I've gone through several cases for both an iPad and iPad Mini. After using the Belkin APEX360 case for about one month, I offer the following assessment...

OVERALL QUALITY
General construction is excellent. The case is made (it appears) from continuous material: there are no seams where it could come apart. The material itself is very tough, but flexible, and does not seem likely to tear.

However, there are two issues that potential buyers should be aware of:
1. The grommet covering the rear camera lens causes a problem, making it impossible to access the power button at the top of the iPad Mini. Luckily, the grommet is easy to pop out. Once the grommet is removed, the power button works fine.
2. The hole covering the headphone jack is too small. To insert a headphone plug, I had to peel back the case. The only solutions I can think of are to widen the hole (not easy) or locate a headphone with a thinner plug.

These two issues are my reasons for taking one star away in my raring.

PROTECTION
This case is made of a rubbery material that seems to offer good shock-absorption. The cover closes securely, leaving no parts of the front area exposed. I have not (thankfully) had the experience of dropping the iPad Mini from 6-foot heights, but based on how this case is constructed I see no reason to doubt Belkin's claim that it would survive such a situation.

Fits Perfect! Military spec 6 foot drop protection. Obscures no ports. Switches operate with no difficulty. Magnetic cover opens and closes efficiently and comes off when needed or desired. It also doubles as a stand as pictured. Does not cause overheating. Looks professional. Belkin makes an excellent case!

Color Name: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Very nice case! It holds the ipad and looks like it would take a good beating. The easel function works well, and we love that it works in portrait or landsape equally well.

It doesn't have a screen protector built in, so I'm not sure this would be enough protection for me to allow a young child to access my iPad. But it would withstand the kind of abuse my 13 year old dishes out.
