The slim-yet-sturdy iPad Smart Case protects your iPad screen and its aluminum back. So your iPad is fully covered on all sides.
Wake on open. Sleep on close.
Open the Smart Case, and iPad magically wakes up. Close it, and iPad automatically goes to sleep.
FaceTime and movie stand.
The Smart Case folds in just the right places to become the perfect FaceTime and movie-watching stand.
The Smart Case is made of polyurethane and features a soft, color-matched microfiber lining that helps keep your display clean.
The Smart Case does double duty as a keyboard stand. Fold it back to tilt iPad into a comfortable typing position.

Love this case, with one exception.
Very happy with this case. Had a smart cover, which magnetically attaches to the side and protects only the front, but this is a s Very happy with this case. Had a smart cover, which magnetically attaches to the side and protects only the front, but this is a step up in terms of protection (obviously), and the ability to both hold the iPad and put it into a bag for travel without worrying about the case moving around and scratching up the iPad (the smart cover had metal-to-metal contact with the device, and would pop off at unexpected times). The suede-like interior is excellent, and the exterior manages to look both industrial and elegant at the same time.
The one problem seems to be the "hinge" side, which pulls away from the iPad and has to frequently be realigned in order for the case to close correctly.
I'd love to see Apple follow up with a similar case for the new iPhone due this fall. …

I really like this case. Fits great and protects the iPad well yet still maintains the slim profile.

The "hinge" is terrible, and it doesn't close properly most of the time (the edge of the cover pulls away from the edge of the iPad); sometimes it pulls away to the point where the magnets aren't close enough to put the iPad to sleep.
Probably the worst Apple product ever... I can't believe Apple put out something of this quality! …

junk - do not buy
Like many other reviewers here, mine is falling apart after just barely over a year of moderate/low use, so the warranty is done. 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. …

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.
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 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. …
