Can I reuse my current case on the Surface Pro 6?
Microsoft has confirmed compatibility
Besides a new color choice, all other changes to the Surface Pro 6 from its predecessor have taken place inside. On the outside, everything is the same size and location, as Microsoft has confirmed:
Reusing will keep your costs down
One of the biggest things you have to deal with when buying a new Surface Pro 6 is that it's a fairly pricey item. Prices start at $899 and for that, you get only the tablet. No keyboard, pen, case — nothing.
You want to at least keep your new device safe, and while a case isn't the priciest accessory you'll be buying, every saving helps. So if you have a case for an earlier Surface Pro, you might as well re-use it.
Plenty of choice to get yourself a case
Beyond reusing existing cases, there's also a bonus point if you don't have a case at all. Since all cases for last year's Surface Pro will fit the new Surface Pro 6, there is already a wide range of great cases available to buy.
Whether you want something rugged or stylish, premium or budget, there's plenty of choice out there.
Reuse all your favorite accessories.
All the changes to the Surface Pro 6 were made under the hood which means you can reuse your favorite cases with the new one.
