iPad Case Review: Union iPad Cover Case by Devicewear for iPad 2 and the New iPad Review

Editor's Ratings (1-5): 4

What's Hot: Extremely lightweight (3 oz.). Designed to complement Apple's Smart Cover. Full access to buttons/switches.

What's Not: Provides only light bump/scuff protection. Provides no screen protection of its own. Expensive.

Reviewed by Tom Slayton

The Union is a protective cover for the back of the iPad 2 and the new iPad. It is designed for use with Apple's Smart Cover, and offers no screen protection of its own.

Size and Fit

The Union fits both the iPad 2 and the new iPad perfectly, and provides full access to all ports and buttons. It is very thin (weighing only 3 oz.) and provides no noticeable girth or heft to your iPad.

Features and Quality

The Union is constructed of a thin, flexible (almost rubbery) plastic. This material makes it easier to hang onto with your bare hands, which is great because if you drop it, it's not going to provide much protection. Still, like many cases, it has made the tradeoff between size/weight and protection, and is squarely aimed at the gentle iPad using crowd that also enjoys Apple's Smart Cover. If you're in this camp, and you are currently only protecting the front of your iPad, this may be the cover for you. Not only does it not interfere with the Smart Cover's attachment system, it also incorporates its own metal strip, which is designed to hold your cover securely in place while open. This is an important feature as any plastic, rubber, or silicone case without this metal strip will relegate your cover to dangling limply while in the open position.


The Union is not intended to be noticed. It is designed to provide almost surreptitious scuff protection, and in that it succeeds. It does, however, come in eight colors ranging from understated to loud so if you're dead set on demonstrating your individuality with your iPad, you're in luck.


The Union is a rear cover for your iPad 2 or new iPad that is designed to work with Apple's Smart Cover. Its thin construction won't protect your device from drops or spills, but it will do a great job of preventing scuffs and scratches incurred through normal wear.
