“After investing in a new device, the next decision a consumer typically has to make is how to best safeguard it,” said Toshi Hokari, executive director, product management and marketing, Imation. “Customers know they can rely on XtremeMac to provide premium cases designed specifically to stylishly protect their purchases, including the new iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display devices.”

Highlights among the XtremeMac offerings for the new iPad Air device include:

The adjustable handle on the Microshield™ Grip makes it easier to grasp an iPad with one hand and its unique rotating mount allows for multiple viewing angles. The multi-function case includes an insert that securely attaches it to any standard tripod for more stable display, photography or video capture. U.S. manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP): $59.99

The ultra-thin Micro Folio includes front and back protection along with a multi-angle stand for ideal viewing and typing. The case is available in a variety of classic colors or an on-trend distressed leather or menswear-inspired gunmetal twill finish. U.S. MSRP: $59.99 - $69.99

For the business professional, XtremeMac created the Thin Folio with an integrated view stand and interior business card keeper. The hidden magnetic closure is camouflaged in the case’s sleek, clean lines and carbon fiber or black leather front and back panels. U.S. MSRP: $39.99

Highlights among the XtremeMac offerings for the new iPad mini with Retina display include:

The Micro Folio Carbon Fiber delivers on strength and durability but it is also incredibly thin and light-weight, making it an ideal case for the highly portable iPad mini with Retina display. The case’s textured front cover is available in a stylish monochrome black or silver. U.S. MSRP: $39.99

Available for the first time with new fabric-textured front and back covers, the Micro Folio for iPad mini with Retina display comes in a variety of hues including bright red, purple, pink and blue along with a classic white, grey and black. U.S. MSRP: $39.99

Also offered for both devices is the XtremeMac Tuffshield™ screen protector in glossy or anti-glare matte finishes. With four durable layers of protection, Tuffshield is the ultimate defense against scratches, dust and dirt. U.S. MSRP: $24.99 (iPad Air) and $14.99 (iPad mini with Retina display), which includes one shield and one microfiber cleaning cloth.

In addition to the new cases, a selection of current XtremeMac cases designed to protect the original iPad mini are also compatible with the recently launched, second generation device.

The Microshield Grip, Micro Folio, Thin Folio, and Micro Folio Carbon Fiber cases and Tuffshield screen protector will be available in November at Amazon.com. For more information, please go to XtremeMac.com, Facebook.com/XtremeMac or Twitter.com/XtremeMac.
