Apple Pencil is a well-regarded peripheral for iPad Pro, so most criticisms of Pencil end up being questions of where you should keep the thing when it’s not in use. Companies have introduced accessories to this end, and some of our favorite iPad Pro cases also offer a holding place for a Pencil. In the same vein, Belkin has introduced Case + Stand for Apple Pencil, which is meant to be an all-in-one solution for Pencil users. Case + Stand does exactly what it claims to do — it’s a storage case for Apple Pencil which doubles as a vertical stand for the peripheral. The case is made of white plastic and gray matte silicone, the latter of which is also found in the recessed tip holder of the stand.
Case + Stand stays shut magnetically, so you can tote it around without being concerned about an Apple Pencil flying out. Inside the case, there’s space for an Apple Pencil, and a sliding door reveals more compartments, which can store an extra Pencil cap and tip. The vertical Stand is a temporary place to rest your Pencil when not in use, so that it won’t be misplaced or roll off your desk or table. Case + Stand is a simple, smart accessory for the frequent Apple Pencil user.
