    Great cover

    • Written by from Saskatoon

    Despite some poor reviews, I purchased a Smart Cover with my new iPad Air this week. It works wonderfully, and I'm confused as to why people can't seem to get their covers to create a stand; I'm using it as a stand right now and it's sturdy as a anything. Love the microfibre interior, and the blue is a fantastic colour. Very pleased.

    I would give this 0 stars if it were an option.

    I have been an Apple customer for nearly a decade, but today I just had my first truly discouraging experience. I have had my iPad and my smart cover for a little while now and never had a problem, but today I was using my ipad with the cover functioning as a stand so I could watch a video. The iPad disconnected from the cover and fell directly onto the tile floor in my kitchen. Now I have an $800 iPad with a smashed screen and a completely broken chassis. Thanks, Apple.

    My family has had several iPads and other apple products, so when my friend/roommate purchased the Air with this cover, I expected the same quality. FALSE. All the other one star reviews mention that it falls easily. This one not only tipped, but caused the screen to crack! Sorely disappointed. Did not expect this cover to cause $150 in repairs.

    Poor quality of ipad air smart cover

    • Written by from Veldhoven

    I am very happy with my ipad air. However the ipad air smart cover that i bougt with it is of very poor quality. After 3 months of daily use, it is torn and i have to replace it. This is disappointing and does not match the apple quality i am used to.

    Pros: light
    Cons: everything else: unstable, falls off easily when handheld, when used as stand; collapses with a light breeze. Waay worse than previous version.
    Wouldn't get another for free...Mac price...laughable
    Yet another step back for Apple

    Better than I expected

    • Written by from Austin

    After reading all the negative reviews of this cover, I expected it to be problematic. However, when I want to the Apple Store and actually tried it, I liked it from the start. The magnets are strong, it looks great on my iPad Air, it's easy to hold, and I haven't had any problems with it falling over or collapsing.

    I have it paired with a Tech21 Impact Mesh back cover, and the two together make an attractive and protective package for my iPad Air.

    It works

    • Written by from Wolfville

    This product works at protecting the screen however I found a few minor problems. When the case is used as a stand, it has a hard time staying up and collapses from time to time. And the protector leaves two long lines down the screen. Other than that it is a good case.

    4 panels are better than 3

    • Written by from Virginia Beach

    In my opinion he new 3 panel design feels uncomfortable and cheap. Furthermore, I feel without the extra panel the shape of the triangle no longer comfortably fits in your hand.

    Mediocre quality and function

    • Written by from Keene

    Would not buy again preferring to find a third-party maker that is supplying a higher quality, better functioning product. This product does not compare well to the leather version that I had on the iPad 2. That cover functioned well in terms of not falling off as this one does and acting as a reliable stand as this one is not. The leather version had a good look and feel until it started falling apart at the seams and the plastic ribs showed through. That surprised me but till then I liked it quite well and that took a year or so to start happening. This version due to the polyurethane gets dirty really easily and looks grungy. The black leather one did not show dirt as much as the blue plastic one.

    Not the greatest

    • Written by from New Hanover

    Bought the brown leather case the day I bought my iPad air, 2 months ago. Fits nicely, sleek and visually appealing. The downside consists of two problems, first as many people here said the three fold design is just plain lousy. Nearly impossible to fold and use as a stand. Second the leather gets filthy. Oils from your hand stain this an no matter what leather cleaner you use it does not come clean. If you buy this beware of the fold issue and immediately spray your case with a protectant sealant
    For 80 dollars there and many cases that are far better than this. Very disappointed. Not up to Apple quality at all. If I could I would return this.

    Not durable

    • Written by from Omaha

    I've had this cover since Christmas and all the corners broke just putting it in my back pack. I'm not talking about forcing it but a few snags and they snapped right off. I would recommend something either than this.

    Not bad, but broke in a month

    • Written by from Fairfax

    The look and feel of the case is very good. The leather is good quality and feels very nice. The color is not as red as my original full sized iPad smart cover. That one was a beautiful rich red color. This one has more of an red-orange look. The cover does not lay flat on the case. It sags in the middle and is raised on the sides. The magnet does not hold as effectively as the smart cover.

    My biggest complaint is that it broke after a month. I removed my iPad from the case and the case broke right above the charger port. For this price it should be able to handle having the iPad removed without breaking.

    Really Disappointed - Functionally not good

    • Written by from Fairfield

    If your a previous generation leather Smart Cover user you will be very disappointed if you like the fold keyboard tying position. The new cover lacks the quality hinge and falls down flat unless your on a perfectly flat steady surface and you don't move the ipad around or type hard. Its not worthy of the new ipad and this is when I really wonder what was apple thinking. If you just want a cover for protection and a quick way to get the ipad naked, this would be fine. I also don't understand why it does not come in leather which also says, apple why change a good thing?

    Not that great

    • Written by from Saint Clair Shores

    I upgraded my first generation iPad to an iPad Air. The smart covers don't do a whole lot. They protect the front screen but they don't fold up into useful viewing or working angles. It kept falling off the iPad too.

    Works well

    • Written by from Eau Claire

    This cover works excellently. Many reviews say it's not stable, but I haven't had any problem with it after 5 weeks of use. I would definitely recommend this product. Only 4 stars because of the price.

    Bad design

    • Written by from Helsingborg

    Have just bought an IPAD 2 and IPADair for my wife and daughter. Bought covers for them both and the difference in quality is very apparent. The cover for the IPAD2 sits perfectly whilst the cover for the IPADair does not sit flush and raises itself in the middle. If you compare the two covers the IPADair cover does not look as well made.

    This cover is terrible. It looks great on my white iPad air but that is the only thing that I like about it. My screen cracked when I put it in my bag going on an airplane because the case didn't support it when there were two objects pushing against it and it resulted in a crack in the bottom right corner of my iPad. I can't feel the crack but it is big and it looks terrible. I am very disappointed now i have to replace the screen.
