Thin, minimal design.
The slim, yet sturdy Smart Cover protects your iPad screen without covering up its durable aluminium back. So your iPad still looks and feels like an iPad — just with a little extra protection.
The Smart Cover is made of polyurethane and features a soft, colour-matched microfibre lining that helps keep your display clean.
An aluminium hinge magnetically aligns the Smart Cover with iPad for a perfect fit. While magnets inside help it stay put.
The Smart Cover does double duty as a keyboard stand. Fold it back to tilt iPad into a comfortable writing position.
Wake on open. Sleep on close.
Open the Smart Cover and iPad magically wakes up. Close it and iPad automatically goes to sleep.
FaceTime and film stand.
The Smart Cover folds in just the right places to become the perfect FaceTime and film-watching stand.

Worth Every Penny.

And Smart it is! The cover works a I've had my iPad 2 since May of this year but only just recently invested in a Smart Cover.
And Smart it is! The cover works a treat; just remove it from the packaging and attach it to your iPad 2.
The magnets automatically align themselves so there's no fuss or frustration involved whatsoever.
In use the Smart Cover excels itself. Being able to use it as a stand is great; from watching TV on Demand to the photo slide shows... and it comes into it's own when using it as a keyboard rest; typing on the iPad 2 is made even easier.
There are many different covers out there for people, and what one person likes another person may prefer another brand.
But for me this cover from Apple really is 'smart!' …

Really good cover

I leave it connected all of the time; just flipping it back to use it. A nice feature is how opening the cover turns the iPad on and closing it turns it off. My only concern is that the back of the ipad might get scratched, but it's pretty obvious that the cover is only for the screen. …

Since buying, my ipad's not been seen in the nude.

Having followed his advice both with regard A friend who was extolling the virtues of his ipad also recommended buying this cover. Having followed his advice both with regards the ipad and cover, I can confirm I'm very happy and impressed with both.
Accessories can sometimes let down the hardware, and it's not always because they're cheap- just cheaply made or of a terrible design. This cover beautifully complements the kit. Its smooth matte surface is not only smart but has proved stain and grease resistant. The hard, reinforced edging protects it from drops, and the foldable cover also acts as a stand (2 options here, unless I'm being unimaginative - only had it three months!), and a kind of handle. It must be the only product of any kind that I've owned that I've used everyday and yet still looks brand new; not a tear, a stain, not one sign of wear. And as a result of using it, the ipad is in similarly pristine condition.
I don't tend to write reviews but then, it's not often you think complimentary thoughts about the makers of a product you own, is it? The creators of the Smart Cover should very proud in all but the rather boring name of this great product (how refreshing: something that's better than its name suggests, not vice versa). Since buying it, my ipad has not been seen in the nude. …

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!

Doesnt stay attached very well

I find that when sliding the ipad in our o The magnet on/off functionality is not ideal for transporting the iPad around in a bag. I find that when sliding the ipad in our out of a bag, the cover becomes detached and slides up the ipad, leaving part of the screen partially exposed.
Personally I also find the 'fold to stand' function a bit poor since the angle is not ideal .
It's an OK cover for round-the-house use, but I would invest in the case version (with the back) rather than this front-cover only version. …
