AppStrap Compatibility with New iPad Air 2 and Mini 3

The iPad Air 2 is now available. It is .5mm thinner than its predecessor. The AppStrap Air, AppStrap 5, and the Conversion Kit are all well-suited for the new device. For more info, see below.
The iPad Mini 3 is exactly the same size as the earlier versions and will work perfectly with the AppStrap Mini Gel case. The AS-5 is compatible with iPad Mini cases like the OtterBox, Gumdrop, and Survivor. For more info, see below.

AppStrap Compatibility
*AS-5: The AS-5 works with nearly any tablet in a case. Without a case, the AS-5 “works” but it does not provide the streamlined fit found in our other products. It should be noted that the AS-5 does NOT fit the Lifeproof FRĒ for ipad mini. 


*AS-1: The AS-1 “works” with the iPad Air 1 and 2, but it does not provide the streamlined fit found in our other products. Though you can use it, we recommend the AS-Air or the AS-Conversion Kit (CK) for use with your iPad Air 1 and 2.


iPad Air 2 AppStrap Compatibility

AppStrap Air
The AS-Air was developed shortly after the release of the first iPad Air. The iPad Air 2 is 18% thinner than its predecessor. In our tests, the AS-Air fit the iPad Air 2 quite well. The 18% size difference was not enough to noticeably alter the stability of the gel case on the iPad.

AppStrap 5
The AS-5 was developed to fit heavy-duty cases like the OtterBox, Survivor, and Gumdrop cases. It will work well on cases that are less than one inch thick. The AS-5 uses two polycarbonate clips to secure the strap to the tablet.

AppStrap Conversion Kit (CK)
Another good option for the iPad Air is the AS-CK. A user simply applies an adhesive Velcro strip directly to the back of any tablet or case. The strip mates to the leg strap along with two Tilt Pads for enhanced viewing.

AppStrap 1
Though the AS-1 is compatible with the iPad Air 1 & 2, we recommend the AS-Air which will yield a much better fit.
The AS-1 can be used with the iPad Air 1 & 2 with or without a case. Sans case, users need simply to attach the pre-cut self-adhesive foam pads (included) to the inside of the clips.
The AS-1 clips also work with Apple’s Smart Cases. The clips attach with the cover either open to the side or folded over the back. In or out of a case, the slotted end of the AS-1 clip allows the micro charger cable to be plugged in.
The Smart Case for the iPad Air is a great case and comes in several materials: all very well constructed, and low profile (they typically retail $40-80). As other similar low-profile cases come on the market, they should also work well with the AS-1 or the AS-5.

 

iPad Mini 1-3 and 4 AppStrap Compatibility


AppStrap Mini
The AS-mini 1-3 was designed for the iPad Mini generations 1-3. The form-fitting gel case provides protection for the iPad Mini 1, 2, and 3. The new iPad mini maintains the dimensions of its predecessors and is fully compatible with the AS-Mini 1-3.

The iPad mini 4 has different ports and required a redesign of the AS-Mini. The AS-mini 4 addresses this issue and fits the new device perfectly.

AppStrap Conversion Kit (CK)
Another good option for the iPad Air is the AS-CK. A user simply applies an adhesive Velcro strip directly to the back of any tablet or case. The strip mates to the leg strap along with two Tilt Pads for enhanced viewing.
