Thin, minimal design.
The slim, yet sturdy Smart Cover protects your iPad screen without covering up its durable aluminum 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 aluminum 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 movie stand.
The Smart Cover folds in just the right places to become the perfect FaceTime and movie-watching stand.

It aligns perfect every time and makes a very handy stand whenever you need one. Keeps the screen clean as well however, the smart cover has damaged my iPad 2 on the side the magnet sticks to. It has left it scratched and ugly. If I had known it would do that, I would have bought another case or something that wouldn't damage the product. …

I got this case in pink and it gets so dirty so fast. It does not protect the back part at all which is what I see getting marked I got this case in pink and it gets so dirty so fast. It does not protect the back part at all which is what I see getting marked also. I would recommend getting a case that slides in and out like a pocket to protect it if you plan to carry it in a bag because it gets scratched easily. The case does NOT clean the screen as well as it claims to. …

Damaged my iPad
I've had a Smart Cover for my iPad 2 for almost 2 years. Whilst it looks good, retains the slim feel of the iPad and it's nice to I've had a Smart Cover for my iPad 2 for almost 2 years. Whilst it looks good, retains the slim feel of the iPad and it's nice to see it unlock after opening, I wouldn't buy another.
Somehow my iPad has a scratch down the screen, despite it being very well looked after. Also, and this is quite a fail, when I removed the case, the side edge where the magnet touches, is really quite badly damaged, right along the length of the iPad. The magnet also has the same damage, it looks like the magnet has stripped the silver away completely.
It has also stopped standing properly, in landscape, it's too weak after 2 years of use and just topples back.
If you really want to protect your iPad, go for the Case rather than the Cover. It's pretty much useless. …

Does the smart cover fit the ipad1?
- Asked by Laurence R from Kapellen
- Mar 29, 2011
Since the exterior of the iPad 1 and iPad 2 are the same dimensions it does fit the top of the scree Since the exterior of the iPad 1 and iPad 2 are the same dimensions it does fit the top of the screen. However, the iPad 2 has magnets built into the machine in order to respond to the magnets in the smart cover. This allows the cover to stay in place and be appropriately aligned. Also, this allows the cover to lock or awaken the screen. Essentially, the smart cover will not stay on the iPad 1 because there are no magnets. I would not recommend buying a smart cover if you only own an iPad 1. …

Can you use this case for first generation ipad
- Asked by Adam B from Dunlap
- Mar 29, 2011
You can set it on the first generation iPad for temporary protection, but that is not it's intended You can set it on the first generation iPad for temporary protection, but that is not it's intended purpose. The magnetic bar on the side of the smart covers hooks, and auto-alligns, itself to the side of the magnetic iPad 2. When closed, it puts it to sleep, and opening it awakens it. Placing any smart cover on an iPad 1 will protect it but it may slide off. I recommend purchasing a cover for first generation iPad, because buying this adds unneeded features and most likely a higher cost. …
