Does the smart cover work for the original iPad?

My daughter gave me an iPad for my recent birthday and I wonder about a cover for it. Does the iPad Smart Cover work on all iPads? Does it completely cover the iPad for travel?

  • Best Answer:

    The Smart Cover only works with the iPad 2. This is because it attaches to the iPad 2 using magnets. These magnets are only in the iPad 2. Also, the Smart Cover only covers the front of the iPad 2 (the screen). There are 3rd-party cases for the iPad 2 which cover the back of the iPad 2 and still work with a Smart Cover.

  • Unfortunately No Because The Original iPad Doesn't Have Magnets.
