iPad Mini was undoubtedly a huge success for Apple. The launch of the successor – iPad Mini 2 (or Retina) – has even further closed down the gap in popularity between the “small” and the “big” Apple devices. Some reports even state that the iPad Mini has already beaten the iPad Air in terms of sales. Protecting the device from everyday challenges is of paramount importance, but keeping its looks presentable is important too. This is where leather accessories come in. Let’s take a closer look at the top 5 leather cases designed for the iPad Mini.
