In Use

The Speck CandyShell Wrap is a very cool little case for the iPad that is different from all of the other cases I have tried. The case has a hard exterior and a soft rubber interior to pad and protect the tablet. The screen-protecting lid of the Speck CandyShell Wrap is removable and the lid rolls back in three sections that can be used as a stand to prop the iPad up.

The lid can be removed from the case altogether and it can be rolled and used to stand the iPad up in portrait mode too. The speaker has a cut out over the top to prevent the sound from being blocked when you are using the tablet. With the case installed, it's a bit hard to dock the player on a dock since the flap that covers the port is in the way.

The case should offer lots of protection for the iPad with the rubber interior that is soft and will prevent scratches. The iPad goes into the case by pressing it into the opening. The rubber liner gives a bit and the iPad snaps into the case. Once in the case the buttons are easy to use on the iPad with the volume, lock button being easy to access, and operate.

The only downside I see to the Speck CandyShell Wrap is that it adds significantly to the bulk and weight of the iPad. The Speck CandyShell Wrap did fit my iPad just fine with the screen protection film installed on my tablet. The only other thing that bothered me about the case was that the screen protection slides off a bit too easily. I kept having to press it back down when I have the cover open and am holding the iPad in my hands. Minor quibbles though; this is a very cool case overall.



  • Protects screen
  • Screen protector turns into stand


  • Screen protector slips off hinge easily
  • Bulky


The Speck CandyShell Wrap for iPad is a cool little case for the iPad that offers protection and style. The case has a flap that acts as a stand and will protect the screen when not in use as well.
