Product Information

  • Thin, minimal design.

    The lightweight, durable Smart Cover has been completely redesigned for the all-new design of iPad Air. It protects your iPad Air screen without covering up its durable aluminium back. So your iPad still looks and feels like an iPad — just with a little extra protection.

    Polyurethane design.

    The Smart Cover is made of polyurethane and comes in six great colours. It also features a soft, colour-matched microfibre lining that helps keep your display clean.

    Magnetic connection.

    A hinge magnetically aligns the Smart Cover with iPad Air for a perfect fit, while magnets inside help it stay put.

    Keyboard stand.

    The Smart Cover does double duty as a keyboard stand. Fold it back to tilt iPad Air into a comfortable writing position.

    Wake on open. Sleep on close.

    Open the Smart Cover, and iPad Air magically wakes up. Close it, and iPad Air 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.

I certainly don't want to add the bulk of a cover and hide the gorgeous back side of the iPad, and a few scratches won't upset me. I opt for the cover to use the auto off function and more importantly to use as a stand.

    I previously owned an iPad 3 with a black leather cover for 18 months. That cover got beaten up over time, but in my opinion looked better with age and the 4 panel design seemed to be more sturdy when folded. Now the iPad air, whilst a beautiful and very light machine, does not have a leather cover, and the new plastic 3 panel design seems a bit flimsy. also because it does not overlap when folded into triangular support, it very easily opens up, i.e. un magnetises itself and opens up. Also it looks...well... like plastic... Bring out a new leather cover please. I realise the case is leather, but come on, who wants to hide the back and add all that bulk? On the plus side the plastic cover is lighter than the old leather one...

Had one previously for my iPad2 which I had for 2 years and was pleased with but this one seems even better.

    - vibrant colour (mine is the bright red)
    - hinge is a big improvement to the older Smart Cover

    Cons:
    - three fold design - doesn't sit well when folded back as there isn't the fourth section to double up on, meaning the triangle formed is skewed.
    - feels very plasticky

    I had the previous version of the iPad and it's cover so have too made comparisons.
    When I first got this cover I hated it in com I had the previous version of the iPad and it's cover so have too made comparisons.
    When I first got this cover I hated it in comparison with the old version. Now, after a few months, my feelings have mellowed. Main points are as follows:
    Good
    It's thin and keeps the bulk of the iPad Air to a minimum whilst protecting the screen and providing a typing slope;
    The magnetic wake up is great and many apps (Endnote Peek and others) are making good use of it;
    The rubber on the outside is tactile and non-slip, I put my iPad down cover down when not in use so as to reduce damage to the back, and this is a great feature;
    The magnetic attachment of the cover is much better and is not damaging the case of the iPad as the previous version did;
    The cover seems to be more hard wearing than the previous version.

    Points of note
    When new, the cover seems to not sit flush with the screen when closed, one of the folds holding it off. This settles with use and time and is fine on mine now;
    If you fold the cover with the rubber out, traction on a surface is better, the cover doesn't pick up anything off the desk and the iPad sits at a slightly steeper angle which, for me, is more comfortable for typing etc. The problem is that if you are a heavy handed typer, the cover can collapse. Again, this was more noticeable when the cover was new and happens with much less frequency now, the folds clearly relax a little with use;
    If you look carefully at the Apple images, you notice that the cover is folded in the opposite way with the soft inner surface outermost. This way you will not suffer collapse when typing but the iPad is at less of an angle, the soft surface can slide about a bit on a polished surface and can pick up grit that could scratch the screen after you close it. If I had my wish, I would want Apple to recognise the limitations of the design and go back to the 4 panel version. That said, it is certainly not enough of a issue for me now to consider a non-Apple alternative as the benefits outweigh the occasional issue (though don't think this lets you off the hook with future designs Apple, it was a bad move to change it!).

However having used the previous version this is a big step back. The case doesn't attach very strongly to the iPad and falls off at least once a day from simple use. The new 3 panel back is not sturdy as a stand and is constantly collapsing (the old version folded over itself which made the stand a lot stronger. All in all, did anyone at apple test this before going out? It seems so daft as the old version worked brilliantly.
