Thin, minimal design.
The lightweight, durable Smart Cover protects your iPad mini screen without covering up its durable aluminum back. So your iPad mini 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 mini 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 mini into a comfortable writing position.
Wake on open. Sleep on close.
Open the Smart Cover, and iPad mini magically wakes up. Close it, and iPad mini 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.

Works well to protect from scratches.
I have a mini Retina and bought the polyurethane Smart Cover (which I'm using in conjunction with a Best Buy/Rocketfish clear mini I have a mini Retina and bought the polyurethane Smart Cover (which I'm using in conjunction with a Best Buy/Rocketfish clear mini back shell). I like this combination because you can remove either the front or back (or use both of course) and use the iPad without a big bulky case. If you're looking for impact protection, this is not the way to go. This will protect from scratching though and works well for me personally.
I would have bought the Smart Cover (front & back combined) but it appears they are only producing this in leather, which I personally don't care for.
One alteration I had to make though to the clear back shell was to drill a hole to accommodate the additional microphone hole on the top-back of the mini Retina's case. The back shell was made for the 1st gen mini which does not have that microphone. …

Perfect for intended use!
This is not meant to protect your mini from impact damage. It is an ingeniously designed screen protector that doubles as a stand This is not meant to protect your mini from impact damage. It is an ingeniously designed screen protector that doubles as a stand to prop up your mini for movies or if you use a wireless keyboard. Anyone who says it doesn't work as advertised is apparently not capable of figuring out how to use it, or has a bone to pick with Apple. This thing works great. Consider the source. …

I just moved from an iPad 3 to the new iPad mini retina and love it! With my previous iPad, I had the Smart Cover in red leather a I just moved from an iPad 3 to the new iPad mini retina and love it! With my previous iPad, I had the Smart Cover in red leather and loved it - it worked beautifully for the more than 2 years I had my iPad. It traveled the world with me and I used it everyday. So when I decided to move to the smaller iPad mini I knew I wanted the smart cover that worked so well for my last iPad. That's when I encountered my first problem: the smart cover for the iPad mini doesn't come in leather, only a cheap, doesn't feel good to the touch plastic. I travel internationally frequently and use my iPad constantly, I need something that will stand up to heavy usage - plastic won't do that, but I tried it anyway. But the Smart Cover didn't fit properly. The edge of the case went too far over the edge of the iPad, so everytime I picked it up, the case would wrinkle or pop open, waking up the iPad. I put the iPad in my bag, and the case just flopped open. The magnets are either too weak in the case or it doesn't align properly so they can't grip the iPad. This is going back, pronto. …
