LifeProof Unveils ‘fre,’ A Ruggedized Waterproof case for the Ultimate in iPad Air Protection

LifeProof freLifeProof is known for their waterproof cases. The company makes fully sealed cases for mobile devices so you can take your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch underwater. Today, the company has launched a new case for iPad Air called “fre.” This waterproof, drop proof, dirt proof, snow proof case will keep your Apple tablet protected from the outdoors so you can play how you like.

LifeProof fre makes it possible for iPad Air owners to hit the slopes, hike a dusty trail, and even take a dip in the lake without worrying about messing up their expensive tablet. The case protects the iPad Air from submersions in water up to 6.6 feet for up to an hour. It defends against drops of up to four feet and has passed military standards for shock and impact protection. The built-in screen protector keeps the display scratch-free while still allowing touch screen functionality.

“LifeProof is excited to offer fre for iPad Air,” said LifeProof CEO Brian Thomas. “We are extremely pleased to provide iPad Air owners with one of the slimmest and most protective cases on the market. Our products not only provide reliable protection, but also meet our customers’ needs for sleek, go-anywhere designs that keep up with their active lifestyles.”

LifeProof fre 2The LifeProof fre for iPad Air is available for $109.99 in black or white and comes with a tethered headphone jack cover. It is compatible with some of LifeProof’s other accessories, including a folio screen cover/stand, a floating LifeJacket, and a mounting cradle.  Accessories will be available later this year.

    I think the point of a waterproof case is to ensure that, if your iPad accidentally gets submerged, it won’t be ruined. Outdoorsy types want to protect their tablet while participating in activities that might otherwise damage their device. A fireproof case would be pretty cool. 😉

      Yea I get what you mean. I understand having it as a precautionary measure. I just don’t get why people are going out of their way to “test” the case by drowning it in a pool – putting their Ipad at unnecessary risk.

      I would love to see all the youtube videos of “fireproof Ipad case testing” and all the inevitable fails lol.
