    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

    Won't last long...

    • 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.

    It's a smart cover but not stand.

    • Written by from Bangkok

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

    Nice case

    • Written by from Monterey

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I like the color, even my favorite color is purple but it's a great case. I bought my iPad air and red case together and I love it.

    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!

    Very disappointing

    Not what I expected

    • Written by from Swedesboro

    The case is flimsy and will not stand like the old cases. Already losing the vibrant red color. Price was way too expensive. Rethink this Apple and offer another case. In fact if you ever do redesign the case, original owners should get a discount on the new one.

    Protects the screen well, but wont stand the ipad up

    • Written by from Bowie

    Dont buy if you are looking for an overall case that will protect your ipad and can be used as a stand. For the amount of money i spent on this, there should be no excuse for any part of it to not exceed expectations! fail!

    Great case!

    • Written by from Hamilton

    This case is awesome. I've had it it for a month and I can honestly say that it works great and protects my iPad pretty well.

    When I first got it, I thought red wouldn't look good for my iPad. I was wrong, it apparently does! The case itself is amazing, it is perfectly craved to fit all the access buttons and ports, including the speaker grill. The fact that both the inside of the case and cover are lined with microfiber, both protects the body of the iPad and cleans the screen too! I had fingerprints all over the screen once, closed the cover, and when I opened it later, the screen was clean again!

    Now, a lot of people say that the stand does not function, leading to many people returning it. In order for the stand to operate right, the microfiber lining of the cover HAS TO BE EXPOSED. If the leather lining is exposed, it fails to operate since it's slips around on surfaces.

    Overall, it is a great case for iPad. Although the price is fairly high, I'd still recommend it since it lasts long and shows great quality. If you want your iPad protected but still looks beautiful, this is the case for you. Thanks Apple.
