I'll admit when I bought my Mini I was less than thrilled about paying an extra 70 dollars for a case but after a week of use I can say this particular product exceeds expectations and is worth the money. There isn't much added weight, the protection is great, and it feels like a premium product should just the way the iPad itself was designed to be. The smart unlock feature is great and the stand is sturdy. I would recommend this case to anyone who is looking to protect their investment.

    First off I want to say that i was skeptical when i went to buy this case, but i am pleased with it.
    I did go buy it when it was First off I want to say that i was skeptical when i went to buy this case, but i am pleased with it.
    I did go buy it when it was released and have constantly used it since. I am extreamly carefull with my ipad and have only droped it ones and thankfully it was with this case and only a half bodys legnth from the ground, only minor damage to the case thats barely noticeable cosmeticly it has not effected my ipad in the slightest.
    -The magnets on the case do their job and have not warn-out so far as i have noticed.
    -Sturdy corners.
    -case does not slip off of the iPad mini
    -there is some space where the back of the case meets with the front, the crease isn't perfect and does lift off of the ipad just a little. but this may be just a problem with my case and isn't that big a deal.
    -the magnets won't magnatize your screen or the inner workings. I saw a review on the old smart cover for the big iPad that blamed the case for slowing down their ipad... Pfft
    Its a good case for moderate to light protection of your iPad mini. Good design and matirials were used to make it. complements the iPad perfectly
    The only thing wrong with it if there is something wrong is the price. But you are paying for leather and brilliant design, if it seems pricey after that, than see if at the store they'll let you try it on for size. once you've seen it on your ipad you'll have no choice than to buy it.

    The case protects the iPad really well but what I really do not like is the cover. I have a iPad 4 with the Apple smart case that The case protects the iPad really well but what I really do not like is the cover. I have a iPad 4 with the Apple smart case that has the 4 tab cover. When you fold it one tab folds inside and holds the fold together really well. But with the 3 tab it relies on a magnet to hold the fold together, which it doesn’t do. When you try to type or put any pressure on it when its in landscape mode the fold just collapses. The size of the folds are bigger now and do not fit in your hand as well as they use to also so its not as comfortable to hold when reading in the vertical position. I would recommend any other one that has a 4 tab cover.

  • I like it, but I don't love it

    3.0 out of 5 stars

    I love my iPad mini with retina display, and I love having a case designed by Apple to match it. I previously owned an iPad 4 and I love my iPad mini with retina display, and I love having a case designed by Apple to match it. I previously owned an iPad 4 and used a polyurethane smart case and I loved it. I will be honest, I would give this case a 5 star rating if it were a polyurethane case rather than a leather case. I hate paying a premium (above the already high premium of buying an Apple accessory to begin with) to have a case that wears easily, gets dirty easily, and is hard to clean. The polyurethane smart case was I much better and cost much less. I will take function over the hardship of having a "premium" leather case any day. My case is about 4 months old and it's done, the corners are wearing, it's getting dirty, the fold in the front cover is permanently bowed out so that it doesn't close properly. I will be replacing it, but not with this case.
