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.

Not as good as they used to make it
I just upgraded from my iPad 2 to the iPad air and wanted to get the Smart Cover since I loved my old one. I was really disappoint I just upgraded from my iPad 2 to the iPad air and wanted to get the Smart Cover since I loved my old one. I was really disappointed to find out they got cheap on the magnetic spine part of the cover. The iPad 2 Smart Cover had a metal spine with a swiveling hinge and now the magnetic part is only held on by a thin piece of polyurethane that kind of looks like it's glued on. I am worried about it peeling off so I am going to return it right away. Also, like the other review it is more of a coral color than pink so keep that in mind before ordering. …

Don't work anymore
They changed the 4 panel design to 3 panels, so the magnets have trouble sticking together. My iPad Air has taken a few slams to t They changed the 4 panel design to 3 panels, so the magnets have trouble sticking together. My iPad Air has taken a few slams to the table as I try to use it in the upright position, and the keyboard position is also very unstable. They need a redesign, quick! My advice is not to buy one. …

Leaves marks on screen, magnet not great
It does the job, but the folds leave long marks across my screen. They are easily removed, but really shouldn't be there in the fi It does the job, but the folds leave long marks across my screen. They are easily removed, but really shouldn't be there in the first place!! The magnets at the end of the flap also don't stick very well, so when you fold the cover back behind the iPad, the flap is usually hanging down rather than neatly attaching itself to the side of the iPad. Okay for something that came with the iPad or for a no-name product... NOT okay for an Apple product that cost me $40! …

It all depends what kind of keyboard you will use. If it is completely separate to the ipad (doesn't It all depends what kind of keyboard you will use. If it is completely separate to the ipad (doesn't dock the ipad) then it will be fine. However it does dock the iPad then it may be a problem, however these cases are easy to remove because they are just held on by magnets. You could take off the case to use your keyboard and them re-attach when finished. …
