Love your first generation iPad case but now have the new iPad? While the design between the generations has not radically changed, there are enough differences to make a case designed for the first generation not workable for the other two iPad iterations. Adjusting for the size difference is easy thanks to flexible casings, but the real headache comes from the rear camera, something that the first generation lacked. After realizing that the case I loved was perfect save for accommodating the rear camera, I knew it was time for a little DIY action.
This project is super simple, and I was pleasantly surprised how quick and easy it was to make my old case work for my new iPad. The important thing is to, like the old advice says, "measure twice, cut once" and ensure that the hole is being made in the correct place. To give the case a more finished look, trim the hole with bias tape or Mod Podge.
