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.

Great product, but has little tear after less than 2 weeks.

this thing is the worst
I've had the cover for well over a year and @#$*&%, it does NOT stay on. I've had the iPad mini fall off and hit my foot numerous I've had the cover for well over a year and @#$*&%, it does NOT stay on. I've had the iPad mini fall off and hit my foot numerous times because it won't hold a simple hold, OW. it's so irritating, worst design seriously.

Dirt won't come out
If you buy this cover in anything but black, you will find that the oils from your hands will, over time, cause dark smudges that If you buy this cover in anything but black, you will find that the oils from your hands will, over time, cause dark smudges that cannot be washed out.

Very efficient cover
Was hesitant to buy at the price, but after going through 2 third party cases from amazon that were complete failures I got the Was hesitant to buy at the price, but after going through 2 third party cases from amazon that were complete failures I got the Smart Cover and love it! It offers more protection than I would think, I've put it through 3 months of abuse and it looks good as new. The magnet is sturdy- I don't worry about dropping my ipad. I like that it is removable and doesn't interfere w the maneuvering of the iPad by adding bulk. I took 1 star off because IT DOES NOT FOLD INTO A STAND- don't bother. That feature is useless fortunately that doesn't matter much to me. I bought a sleeve for travel but the cover is perfect for daily use. I got the pink and it matches my iPhone 5c …
