Do you spend loads of time drawing, working or reading on the iPad Pro? At YES we are all pretty addicted to our own iPads and spend a lot of time drawing and creating new work on them.

That's why Martin decided to make a video which lists his 5 favourite accessories. These accessories can help improve your productivity, ensure you are comfortable or help you customise your workflow so it suits your needs. 

Check out this video to discover the accessories which made the list plus see them in action as Martin demonstrates how to use each product, it's pros and why in particular he rates its performance and would recommend purchasing it.

Top 5 iPad Pro Accessories

1.  ErgoStand from Back Pain Help


The perfect stand for when you want to get into a session of drawing on your iPad but don't want to punish your back! This can be used in both standing and sitting positions and it fully adjustable!

Use your iPad with style! This is the perfect stand for resting your iPad when you want to read, make notes or do some lighter doodling. We don't recommend you use this for longer drawing sessions just lighter work. It's also a great way to display your iPad.

Finding your iPad a little weird to draw on or just miss the feeling of pencil on paper. This product is perfect for you. Our whole team use it and we love it! It's a screen protector which also makes the surface of the iPad Pro feel more like the texture of paper.

4. Luna Display & Astropad

Luna Link $80 
Astropad Link Subscription plan

Connect your iPad Pro with Mac and transform it into a secondary screen. You can still use the Apple Pencil and touch gestures but your iPad will display the mac operating system and all the applications you use on the desktop will be available Just like connecting a screen through HDMI.

5. Apple Smart Folio


This case connects to the iPad magnetically meaning the screen is well protected. It's also not to bulky so doesn't get in the way whilst you use your device. However the protection is quite light so this is probably better if you're just using your iPad around the home not out and about!

Alternative case option



 At the moment this case is only available for the 3rd gen iPad Pro 12.9 inch. So if you have this model you are in luck because it does an amazing job of protecting the device while still not being to clunky or large. Perfect for keeping it safe at home and on the move.
