The iPad mini Smart Case protects the back as well as the screen, while maintaining the thin and light design of iPad mini.
The Smart Case is made from beautiful, aniline-dyed leather and comes in six rich colours. It also features a soft, colour-matched microfibre lining that helps keep your display clean.

Great looking, lacking functionality
Just received my silver iPad Mini with Retina, along with a black smart case.
First impression is WOW they look great together Just received my silver iPad Mini with Retina, along with a black smart case.
First impression is WOW they look great together. iPad Mini with Retina is exactly what I needed.
The Smart Case is made with good, thick, quality leather that look and feels like it will last for a long time. It definitely will be able to protect the outsides of the iPad with out a doubt. There is one MAJOR flaw with the cover. The magnets that make the cover into a horizontal viewable stand are not strong enough. With a small touch to the iPad Mini, the case unfolds flops down.
I am going to the Apple store now to return in. …

I bought 3 ipad minis last christmas, 1 for me and 1 each for my kids, i bought this, the proper case for my ipad but my kids didn I bought 3 ipad minis last christmas, 1 for me and 1 each for my kids, i bought this, the proper case for my ipad but my kids didnt like the apple case, what good judgement they have. i was taking some photographs on my ipad last sunday, when, for no reason the ipad fell out of the case and smashed on the floor leaving me with an empty case in my hands. I have read reviews on this case on various forums and this scenario happens on a regular basis. the case is not fit for purpose in my experience, £55, what a waste of my hard earned money. I telephoned my nearest Apple store (some 25 miles away) and they suggested i make an appointment to go and see them, they dont do repairs so what is the point of that. I then tried to email Apple to air my views but they dont make it easy to do that either.
I only gave this case 1 star because there is no facility to give it none, dont waste your money, a spurious case will protect your ipad better.
I just need to check if my ipad can be recycled or is just going to landfill! …

Does the iPad mini with Retina Display Smart Case - (PRODUCT) RED wear easily and does it discolor much?

The (PRODUCT) RED is a beautiful product. I have only been using it for about 2 weeks, and I have not noticed any discolouration or smear of the dye on the screen, as I have had previously with the smart covers on my normal iPad. They do warn on the box that it may happen though, but I think it will give more character. …

is the case drop proof
- Asked by Thomas Z from Perth
- Apr 2, 2014
Nothing is drop-proof, but it is slightly damage resistant.
It will prevent it from getting scuffed Nothing is drop-proof, but it is slightly damage resistant.
It will prevent it from getting scuffed if dropped, it prevents scratches, and it likely prevents most minor drop damage, but if it's dropped on the screen it will break, and the iPad will break if dropped on a hard surface from too high.
TL;DR: It's no Otterbox but it's better than nothing. …
