Thin, minimal design.
The lightweight, durable Smart Cover has been completely redesigned for the all-new design of iPad Air. It protects your iPad Air screen without covering up its durable aluminum back. So your iPad still looks and feels like an iPad — just with a little extra protection.
The Smart Cover is made of polyurethane and comes in six great colors. It also features a soft, color-matched microfiber lining that helps keep your display clean.
A hinge magnetically aligns the Smart Cover with iPad Air for a perfect fit, while magnets inside help it stay put.
The Smart Cover does double duty as a keyboard stand. Fold it back to tilt iPad Air into a comfortable writing position.
Wake on open. Sleep on close.
Open the Smart Cover, and iPad Air magically wakes up. Close it, and iPad Air automatically goes to sleep.
FaceTime and movie stand.
The Smart Cover folds in just the right places to become the perfect FaceTime and movie-watching stand.

Pricey but you get what you pay for.
Very nice fit for the new Air. Magnets seem stronger than the last gen covers. Three panels work just fine. When you fold it up in Very nice fit for the new Air. Magnets seem stronger than the last gen covers. Three panels work just fine. When you fold it up into a stand the magnets hold it all together. I had zero issues with it unfolding. I poked and pushed it around, stays together just fine. The new magnets are covered by material and are not making a metal on metal connection thus your iPad won't be scratched. Really nice fit and finish.
The only downside is the price. $43 is expensive. But it does work flawlessly and is a premium product from a premium company. …

Love the Updated Design

Love the new design. My old cover was just starting to threaten rip where the material looped around the bar, and I was forever annoyed by the metal-on-metal scuffing. The new design has no such issues! The connection to the iPad Air is all covered. And the new one seems stiffer (maybe the last one started out this way, but I don't think so). Love it! …

Better than I expected

However, when I want to the Apple Store and After reading all the negative reviews of this cover, I expected it to be problematic. However, when I want to the Apple Store and actually tried it, I liked it from the start. The magnets are strong, it looks great on my iPad Air, it's easy to hold, and I haven't had any problems with it falling over or collapsing.
I have it paired with a Tech21 Impact Mesh back cover, and the two together make an attractive and protective package for my iPad Air. …

When the case is used as a stand, it has a hard time staying up and collapses from time to time. And the protector leaves two long lines down the screen. Other than that it is a good case. …
