iPad Smart Cover - Polyurethane - Light Grey
iPad Smart Cover - Polyurethane - Light Grey
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.
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.
The Smart Cover now comes in five more vibrant polyurethane colors with a soft, color-matched microfiber lining that keeps your display clean.
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.
Choose a beautiful, aniline-dyed Italian leather cover with a soft, color-matched microfiber lining that keeps your display clean.

Useful and easy to use; watch out for ipad2 breakage
Bought the ipad2 a week ago and today as I was getting out of the car, the side of the ipad tapped against the metal door. Didn' t hit the door hard, I barely noticed the tap, that is until I opened the ipad to use it in our hotel room. Huge cracks in the ipad glass (although the screen still works).
The ipad2 needs a full protective case like the Kindle has or one risks breakage like I had today when transporting the ipad2.
I called the Apple 800 number and was informed glass breakage will cost $299 to switch out another ipad2 for mine. Not on warranty either as it was an accidental breakage.
Even before I switch out I'm getting a protective case of some sort. Hard lesson learned. …

Like another customer here, this cover works perfectly! I have used the pink one for a year when I bought my iPad 2. My husband just upgraded his iPad to the 2 and bought this grey one and again it works perfectly. Those who say it collapses under the weight of the iPad simply do not know how to fold it properly as a stand. I also love the on/off feature of the iPad the cover provides. Definitely NOT disappointed! …

It does what it says
It is super simple to attach, it holds fine, flat or upright, no issues. I like it a lot. A little pricey but hey that is Apple, l oool. I honestly do not understand why people complain. It works as shown in the videos. …

It gets beat up after a while
Here are my observations of having the Smart Cover after a few months.
The edging (the minted plastic or whatever on the entir e outer edge of the product, to keep everything together) started peeling off. After a while pieces of the edging would peel off altogether, causing the problem that my Smart Cover is literally falling apart. On the screen cover, the entire outer edging has peeled off, and now the inside lining is fraying and coming off as well, meaning so are the magnets. When it got to the point of one of the magnets actually came off, we tried to superglue it back on. HEEYY guess what? Now it doesn't work.
Along with that, the flap that keeps your iPad in the case is tearing off from the rest of the case, so now my iPad is insecure in the case. …

Worked for a while
When I first got my red Smart Cover it was great with the magnetic connection to my iPad 3rd gen. It even cut off the screen for m e once I put the cover on so it was great. Hadn't had any problems for a long time. After about 10 months of having my iPad and Smart Cover it started to mess up my iPad screen. When I would put the Smart Cover on and take it off sometimes the screen went blank and sometimes it would work fine. So I decided to not use the Smart Cover for a few days and my iPad was fine but as soon as I put it back on my screen went completely white and my iPad was officially considered broke. I loved the cover until this happened. Due to my warranty I received a new iPad in 3 days but I will be getting a case that is non magnetic this time. …

Not up to Apple's usual high design standards
Magnetic bar doesn't hold the cover on very well. It's always coming off. Difficult to fold the cover for a stand, even after a month of use. Back and sides are unprotected. Piece of junk. …

As a cardiac nurse I do believe the magnets that are used to activate or deactivate a pacemaker/defi brilator are a different type of magnet than those that would be easily purchased in a store. Furthermore the magnets on this case are too low of a quality to do any damage. One of the Cardiologists that comes to the hospital has one of these and he takes it into pts rooms, some of who have pacemakers, and it hasn't interferred with the pacemaker or our telemetry so far. But if you are still worried, don't go around with it laying on your chest. …

There is not a cover but there is a case that does pretty much the same thing. Just make sure if you get the case that you do not buy the smart case because that will not work with the original iPad. …
