Griffin Adds Rotating Feature to Updated AirStrap iPad Case


Griffin’s AirStrap case makes it possible for you to hold your iPad with one hand without worrying about it slipping from your fingers. The flexible strap lets you place your palm flat on the backside of the iPad securely. Today, the company announced that the AirStrap has been updated with a rotating strap so you can hold your iPad Air or iPad mini in any direction and still experience the same secure hold.

The new design of the AirStrap lets users adjust to any viewing angle with one hand, leaving the other free for touch screen activities. The molded frame surrounds the iPad and protects the edges without impeding on the controls and ports. The back of the frame houses the one-size-fits-all hand strap. The new rotation feature allows users to switch between landscape and portrait viewing with ease.

“The new rotation feature in our AirStrap has added even more functionality to one of our most convenient and useful cases,” said Chris Paterson, General Manager of Design and Product Marketing at Griffin Technology. “AirStrap hugs your hand gently and allows users to effortlessly spin the device at any angle for optimal viewing, presenting and sharing.”


The AirStrap includes the following features:

  • Built-in hand strap makes holding your iPad Air with one hand easier and more secure
  • Structured frame rotates to landscape or portrait orientation
  • Protects the edges, controls and connectors of your iPad Air
  • Contoured edges are easy to grip

The AirStrap for iPad Air is available for $39.99 and the AirStrap for iPad mini is available for $34.99. Visit the company’s website for more information and to purchase your case today.

    Strap back cases are uncomfortable. They put your wrist in an unnatural position when you hold the tablet to view them and make your wrist sore very quickly.
    One of those “seemed like a good idea” things until you actually use one for any length of time.

      That’s very interesting. I wonder if the AirStrap’s new rotating strap will help users who have issues with pain from the unnatural position, or if the sore wrist just comes from putting too much pressure on one hand, no matter what the position.
