Just an OK Case
When I picked up my iPad Air on 11/1, I didn't want to take it home without a case, so I bought one of the new cases designed to c When I picked up my iPad Air on 11/1, I didn't want to take it home without a case, so I bought one of the new cases designed to cover both sides of the iPad. At $79 I expected it to be a gorgeous leather and very functional, but it's not. It really does not feel like leather at all, and I just have not been able to prop the iPad up on a table with the case, the way that I expected I could.. I am thinking about returning it for a refund. …

Great case; really adds to the iPad Air
I decided to get this case after asking an Apple employee if I could see one 'in action' so to speak. They brought one out from t I decided to get this case after asking an Apple employee if I could see one 'in action' so to speak. They brought one out from the back that had an iPad Air in it. I immediately decided to get it. I have prior experience with the Smart Case for a previous iPad (3) and didn't like it because the lip at the top seemed wide, clunky, and bulky. It could be that the new smaller form factor of the iPad Air allows it's Smart Case to be more pleasing. The top lip is narrow (like the bezel) and you hardly notice it. For my previous iPad I had both the Smart Case and a Smart Cover which I used in combination with a Belkin Snap Shield Secure. The Belkin case is a low profile shell (for the back) that was designed to accept the Smart Cover. I bring this up because it was my intention to use both setups and alternate them but since I disliked the older Smart Case so much I ended up never using it. For this new Smart Case, this is the only case I intend to get as I really like it. It's pricey as leather is the only choice, but if I had gotten the less expensive Smart Cover, I would have gotten an additional shell for the back so there would be extra cost there. I don't mind paying a little extra for a good solution like this. …

An adequate case
After reading the reviews for this, I decided to buy it even though many were complaining about the flimsiness of the upright stan After reading the reviews for this, I decided to buy it even though many were complaining about the flimsiness of the upright standing. It is better than I expected, but not amazing. I've used the Smart Cover for an older iPad and it is much sturdier. I will keep this though. I rarely use the upright stand position, and as long as you don't push your iPad, it will stay standing. Otherwise, it's a pretty good case. …

I hope apple reads these reviews
I bought this case without reading the reviews and they couldn't be more right. The case doesn't stand upright because of the poor I bought this case without reading the reviews and they couldn't be more right. The case doesn't stand upright because of the poor design! I hated spending this much on this case but I thought it would be the best, but it isn't. Apple needs to read these reviews and fix these cases. I'm taking mine back. …

This Case Saved My iPad!
I am so glad I got this case when I ordered my iPad Air 2. I have only had the iPad for a week and it fell and dropped face down f I am so glad I got this case when I ordered my iPad Air 2. I have only had the iPad for a week and it fell and dropped face down from my computer desk onto a hardwood floor. I bumped my chair into it when I was turned around and herd a big bang. I was immediately worried and freaking out as I just bought it and its my first iPad and it's not even paid for as I did a payment plan.
Picked it up and opened the case and luckily the iPad is unharmed. Still in perfect condition. Good thing I had the case closed. I believe if I didn't have a case on it the screen would of broke. Was very lucky and will need to be more careful in the future.
Thank you smart case! I love my iPad! Whew... …

No. The iPad Air is thinner than the iPad 2/3/4 due to the smaller bezel on both sides.
