SAN DIEGO, March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sleek design and powerful protection unite as LifeProof® today announced availability of the new fre® for iPad Air case. LifeProof's award-winning waterproof, drop proof, dirt proof and snow proof features turn the latest iPad into a lean, mean, mobile-computing machine.
LifeProof fre allows iPad Air users to take a plunge underwater, shred the slopes or careen down a dusty trail without worry, creating a carefree tablet experience that doesn't interfere with the device's sound output or touch screen clarity. The LifeProof fre protects the iPad Air from submersions in water up to 6.6 ft. for up to one hour and drops from 4 ft. The fre passes military standards for shock and impact protection, all in a compact design that complements the device. A built-in screen protector helps keep the display scratch free while allowing total 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."
The LifeProof fre for iPad Air is available now in black and white. The waterproof iPad Air case includes a tethered headphone jack cover and is compatible with a variety of LifeProof accessories, including a folio screen cover that doubles as a stand, a floating LifeJacket and a mounting cradle. The accessory lineup is coming soon. LifeProof fre for iPad Air is available for $109.99 at www.lifeproof.com and select retailers.
LifeProof nuud®, the first waterproof case without a built-in screen protector, will also be available soon. Proprietary screenless technology allows direct contact with the device screen for an uninhibited user experience.
For peace of mind, the LifeProof Total Water Protection Program is available as an option at the time of purchase of a LifeProof fre for iPad Air at www.lifeproof.com. This optional program offers repair or replacement should the registered user's device sustain water damage while properly installed in a LifeProof case.
