    Amazing but

    • Written by from North olmsted

    I absolutely LOVE everything about my case especially the color and overall fit, but since the case is only 3 panels I have extreme difficulty trying to get my iPad to stand up to be able to watch movies etc

    • Written by from Kontio

    Ok product for the first year after that seams started ripping open.
    Now after 14 months totally useless, iPad will not stay in case as it's loose.
    Pricey.

    What Garbage

    • Written by from HAMTRAMCK

    This case will not stand up. That's all there is to it. $80 of my hard earned money for something that is basically worthless for it's intended purpose! Protection is fine, but so are many others!

    Better balanced than 1st gen Smart Case

    • Written by from Lakewood

    I bought the first generation of the smart case and my biggest complain with it was the iPad tended to topple over, most likely due to poor center of mass. While I would have preferred that the 4 panels remained, I will gladly accept the 3-panel design trade-off because my iPad doesn't topple over as long as the base is properly hinged.

    Good fit but terrible material.

    • Written by from Metamora

    Naturally, my red smart case fit like a glove. However, that's about as far as my satisfaction goes with this case. Unlike the previous smart cases, the new ones are made of a leathery material and not the same rubbery silicone material as the older cases. These new cases absorb smells very easily, so stay far far far away from any kind of smoke. Also, do not get this case wet at all! I once picked up the case after washing my hands and the moisture soaks into the leather and deforms the case (it gets bumpy and never returns to normal).

    Overall, this case is a joke for the price.

    Awful quality, wears out within weeks

    • Written by from SOUTHAMPTON

    I've now had two of these cases after the local store agreed to swap my first one but after experiencing exactly the same problems I shall be returning it.

    The magnets pickup iron/metal filings which then get engrained in the microfibre, you'll have odd rectangles marking the flap within a few days and they're near on impossible to remove.

    The leather stains easily and looks grubby within days. The corners will discolour quickly where you hold it and the corners of the flap curl up like an old book.

    The cover flap doesn't even sit flush with the screen when its shut (was told this is a design feature!!)

    It falls over constantly when using the flap as a stand (which also places the microfiber side on whatever you're sitting it on meaning it attracts even more dirt)

    It honesty feels like you'll snap the ipad trying to remove it sometimes

    You must do better than this Apple, its simply not up to the standards I've come to expect over the last 10 years.

    It's a smart cover but not stand.

    The cover is very nice. It can be a smart cover but it doesn't work as a stand.

    Love the greenish cover. The problem is that it is getting soiled really fast and hard to wipe clean.

    Looks great but doesn't function well

    • Written by from Bridgeport

    I love the color and this is clearly a well made product. However, it will not stay when folded over for typing or watching. It falls flat. The useless panels also cause the cover not to lay flat against the top of the iPad when closed. If you want a case that is just a case, not to be used as a stand or prop, look no further. If you want a case that also functions as a stand, look elsewhere.

    PURCHASING OF IPAD AIR SMART CASE

    • Written by from ELLENBROOK

    I was considering purchasing the smart case for my iPad Air, but on reading other reviews I will not be purchasing this, at least not until APPLE smarten up and make it more sturdy. As I will be using this quite often in my kitchen to follow a recipe, I need it to be able to stand up when I scroll down the page. COME ON APPLE MAKE IT STURDIER AND CHEAPER!!

    Ok

    • Written by from Bismarck

    It fits but does not work as a stand. For a premium price this is terrible. I am surprised they are selling. It is not as advertised. Does not work as a stand.

    Nice case, totally awful as a stand

    • Written by from NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE

    This is a one star review only because the system would not let me rate it as 0 (zero) which I would if I could.
    I had a smart case with my iPad 2 and it was great as a case and it was a useful stand.

    The new 3 fold design of these new cases is just terrible. I lost count the number of times it collapsed whilst i was watching a video or whilst typing. I got so fed up I bought a new non apple cover/case.

    How this ever passed Quality Assurance just astounds me.

    Avoid at all costs.

    Super design !

    • Written by from Göteborg

    It is a really nice case..very attractive, very beautiful and it protects the ipad! It also stands perfectly.. I don't know why people have so many problems... But the design is the best advantage.. The only problem is that it becomes dirty easily and the leather is difficult to be cleaned!

    Case but No Stand

    • Written by from NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE

    The iPad Air case is a nice slim light fit. It keeps the iPad Air clean and scuff free. As far as a stand goes this unit is worthless. The Apple Air Will NOT stand in this case. It falls over no matter what way you fold the case. My query to Apple Product Control is will Apple indemnify its customers when this case causes the iPad to fall and as a result the iPad is damaged. My iPad has now fallen three times and hit a hard surface. This product is unfit for purpose and this design needs urgently reviewed. Apple need to act here as it is their Brand that is suffering as a result. Previous CEO Jobs would not have been pleased with this shabby workmanship and at £65 sterling this is daylight robbery.

    A few small flaws hold it back

    • Written by from Sainte Genevieve

    The microfiber lined leather has protected my Air from day one. No need to clean the microfiber as some have said. The port holes are precisely machined and don't let any debris get between the iPad and the case. When I have taken the case off, there wasn't a speck of dust, lint, etc. behind it. My only issue is that as a stand, it is kinda flimsy. For $80, I expect it to stand better. It works well enough for me in landscape mode with the wireless keyboard. I purchased the natural brown color and have ZERO marks on the case as some complain about. Even where I slide it into my bookcase, there are zero scuffs, smudges or marks along the bottom. I guess I just take better care of my belongings.

    A great case

    • Written by from wakefield

    Having read the other reviews I was unsure as to wether to buy the case or not, due to other reviewers saying it is of poor quality and the stand doesn't work, however I bought it. Whilst it is admittedly very expensive, it does it's job perfectly. I have found the magnetic stand function to work excellently every time and the overall feel of the case is that it is of a high quality.

    Great for Protection but Flimsy as a Stand

    • Written by from Wilmington

    I love everything about the iPad Air Smart Case EXCEPT THE THREE SECTION STAND IS AWFUL!!! No matter how I prop up the trifold cover, it falls over once I start using the touchscreen. I have to hold the top of the iPad with one hand while I maneuver the screen with the other NO MATTER WHERE I USE IT!
