    I pad smart case

    • Written by from whitehouse

    I also loved my iPad smart case until it started falling apart. I used E5000 craft glue after I pulled the remaining adhesive strip off. E5000 is a flexible adhesive that can be purchased at most craft stores. So far, so good! Use sparingly because it is powerful stuff! I do have to say, however, for what they cost, they should not fall apart like they do!

    Does not last

    • Written by from Altrincham

    I loved it when I got it, but two years on, it is literally falling apart at the seams. I don't even use the iPad all day, this is not customer damage or reasonable wear and tear, this is shoddy goods. For the price I paid from the apple shop I expected a lot better. It is now worse than useless. Very, very disappointed. If you read this Apple, you have my email address feel free to contact me.

    iPad Mini disaster

    • Written by from Bognor Regis

    The expensive Apple smart case has gradually loosened to the stage where my son called me distraught to tell me his 128gb iPad mini had fallen out of the case and the screen is cracked and badly damaged .
    Luckily the iPad still works fine but come on Apple this is an expensive gadget which I now need to get a screen replacement.
    Why are you making such rubbish .
    I nearly bought one for my iPad Air 2? Luckily I got a Twevle South Book Book one.
    I'm getting one for his too after repair.

    Shoddy goods

    • Written by from Glasgow

    After 1 year of use the case started to lose its colour, stretched and the iPad popped out a few times but now, 2 years later, the whole thing has split at the seams. Not good for £40. Never will I buy another Apple case. I'll just go for the compatible cheaper options in future! Wish I could post the photos of damage!

    Solution for case becoming unglued at the seams

    • Written by from Annapolis

    I put four staples into my ipad case, each staple as near as possible to the corners of the case, but not on the curves. The staples have to be put on the outer rim of the case, just outside of the magnetic rim that is inside the polyurethane. One staple per corner. Now my ipad doesn't fall out anymore.

    The way it is

    Mine started to fall apart after about a year, like people say. Got oil on it. Maybe that is why. I will still buy another one.

    Didn't last

    • Written by from Cornwall

    I have had a Smart Cover in Apple Red for two years, and it started coming apart on the side about 6 months ago. I glued it back together and it lasted for a while, but now has come apart on both sides, and the iPad is loose. I had it personalized, so am upset that I paid 50$ for a case that I will no longer be able to use. Up to the point of it falling apart, I liked the feel of it and the fact that you can just close it to close your iPad. I never did like the folding stand, found it to be tippy, and it is hard to keep clean. I think if it wasn't so expensive I would purchase another one, as it protects well from scratches and drops. I feel that a product with the apple logo should last longer than a year and a half.

    Good cover but there is a durability issue

    • Written by from Merimbula

    Since purchasing my iPad two I have had two of these covers and am about to buy my third. Why am I buying a third cover? Because, even though it does a great job protecting the iPad (I travel with it packed away on a motorbike) and the fit is very good, the cover eventually splits around the edges and the back separates from the front cover. I have only managed to get about 12 months use out of the cover before it needs replacing.

    Comes apart

    • Written by from Bellaire

    I've had this iPad case for 3 years, and the whole thing is coming apart. It's very bad quality and certainly not worth the price. It also gets dirty very easily and is difficult to clean.

    Shoddy piece of kit

    • Written by from Dun laoghaire

    This outrageously priced cover would be bad value at at a fifth of the price. It has stretched so much that it is no longer usable. Yes, I have had it for over a year, but from Apple I would have expected durability. This product makes a nonsense of the famed Apple brand value of quality. Wake up Apple - your reputation for quality is only as strong as its weakest link and you have certainly taken the eye off the ball with these cheaply made covers. I am now wondering what other short cuts you are taking! Caveat emptor.

    Great case while it lasted

    • Written by from Mount Pearl

    Loved my smart case until it fell apart. Received my iPad and a smart case for Christmas 2 years ago. Case came engraved with a message from my wife so it has sentimental value. This case was good as it generally performed as advertised and did not add any bulk or weight to the iPad, however the glue holding it together has completely failed and the case has completely come apart at the seams on two sides.

    Not long lasting

    • Written by from Warwick

    Bought this Smart Cover for my I pad retina display from Apple in July 2013, was very happy with it until the edges started coming apart and the I pad would no longer stay in place. Very disappointed as thought I was doing the right thing investing in a Apple product

    iPad case

    • Written by from Dartmouth

    This case was great when I first got it. After a year it became very flimsy and could no longer use it as a stand. Then the glue around the edges started to let go and the iPad would just slide out. I wish I invest in a better quality case right away. Would definitely not reccomend.

    Don't buy APPLE CASES!

    • Written by from Honolulu

    This was a total ripoff. Paid $49 for a case that outlasted the Ipad. The outside does not clean well, and the inner felt lining flakes off and piles like a cheap sweater.

    fell apart

    • Written by from Ajax

    I have had this case and it worked wonderfully. it has had a lot of use, but the bottom is coming apart on the seams I was taking a photo and the ipad slipped out of out of the bottom!! all was okay, but could have been a disaster. tried to adhere it back together but now the case is misaligned and doesn't always close properly. looking for something to replace it, but havnt made a final decision as yet. my friend found a case that works perfectly from the dollar store!! I really don't think those cases with an Apple Logo should cost as much as they do!!

    junk - do not buy

    • Written by from DPO

    Like many other reviewers here, mine is falling apart after just barely over a year of moderate/low use, so the warranty is done. Glue on seams is coming apart, so the Ipad will not stay in the case and it moves around when trying to read or otherwise use the Ipad. Shame on Apple for selling this kind of cheap, poorly made junk, especially at that high price. It should last more than a year. Definitely will not buy another. If you have not bought one yet, don't waste your money.

    Ehhnn...Its alright.

    • Written by from Rochester

    The case was alright. I got my case in October of 2013. As of November of 2014, the case has started ripping. BUT WAIT. That doesn't make it a bad case. I love that I can just flip it open and continue off from were I was anywhere on my iPad. It also feels good. I give it 3 stars only because it lacks durability. Functionality though, is a major plus.

    Great case but, it didn't last long.

    • Written by from St. Peter's Bay

    i purchased this case less than one year ago. I was happy with the ease of use and the level of protection it provided. The only down fall is the longevity. The case side seams started coming apart after 8 months of use and now at 11 month they're almost completely apart. The ipad easily falls out of the case with normal use now.
