    Smart cover

    • Written by from Banning

    This is great for turning the iPad on and off...but it needs a caution..If you have a pacemaker do not buy it. I found myself getting light-headed and had to quickly remove it and toss it out of working range. Eventually I gave it to my granddaughter so she could have fun with the magnets.

    Works and looks great!

    • Written by from Meredith

    I have used this for over 6 months..no problems. Saves the battery, works great as two angle stand, easily cleaned the vinyl with soft cloth and mild soap, magnets continue to work fine...no problem, microfiber does keep screen safe and cleans it as well. Most of all...it's slim great looking design compliments the Apple IPad design and impresses people when they see me using it's functions. If you other critics want full protection, you should have bought a laptop with a case!
    Just buy one.

    Great design

    • Written by from Geashill

    I really love the smart cover. Works really well on the New iPad. The fact that it doubles up as a stand is brilliant. However don't expect any great protection...it will cover your screen ok but the rest of the iPad is still just as vulnerable as it was without the cover. Keep this in mind when purchasing. Can't fault the rest of it though, it's a great addition to my iPad!

    Apple should refund this junk.

    • Written by from Brunswick

    This is the worst device Apple has ever produced. It doesn't stay on the iPad, and it won't even stay up so you can form a stand! (Even the iPad II was ok at that, just the "new" iPad version is defective in this.

    This is absolutely worthless. I was fooled into buying the $79 version (I know, shame on me) and didn't even realize a $39 version existed, but I bought it at the Apple store and I learned to trust them.

    I am just going to throw it away. Even the Apple Store techs are now suggesting you buy a case somewhere else. (We buy them for a business so buy them on a regular basis.)

    Apple should refund all who were fooled into buying this junk. It has significantly lowered my opinion of apple products.

    Essential accessory

    • Written by from FINSPÅNG

    The smart cover is excellent. It's perfect in every single way except one - when the cover is folded to the back, it doesn't quite attach to the back itself. Very small caveat though. All in all, this is the best accessory Apple's ever released - it's even better than than the excellent iPhone bumper.

    A shame that the good colours are reserved for the leather versions, though.

    I got the dark grey cover -- and I couldn't like it more. It does just what Apple says it will do!

    More of a hindrance

    • Written by from San Jose

    When using the iPad, the cover does not fix flat onto the back and flaps open freely.

    Great for what it is.

    • Written by from Oxford

    No it doesn't protect the back and it does come off ipad easily but users who complain should do some research before buying. I love mine. It makes propping my ipad for viewing movies or typing easy. I went to iskins and bought their case made to work with the smart cover. This eliminates the smart cover from coming off, it is extremely secure. My only problem with the smart cover is that it seems to wear out easily. I have only been using it for a week and a half and it is already starting to bend out of shape in one area that bends to support propping. Maybe I should have bought one of the leather ones instead of the polyurethane one? I'm happy enough with it that if another better case isn't made for the ipad 3 I will buy a leather one when this one is no longer usable.

    Good product with a flaw

    • Written by from Usquert

    The main functionalities of protecting the screen and stand function work properly. However the screen gets dirty in those areas where the cover does not touch the screen; leaving three stripes of dust on the screen behind. Everytime I flip the cover I am looking at those stripes and need to wipe the screen.

    Do not buy this!

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I purchased the "smart" cover at the same time I ordered my iPad2 online but I guess I did not study about this product in detail.
    I hate the fact that it does not protect the back of the iPad.
    I hate the fact that the magnets are so weak and dose not stay or stand firmly.
    I trusted Apple but I was disappointed this time..

    I think it is a great way to cover\protect your iPad's screen. My iPad is never without it.

    It is a great addition.

    Only protects the FRONT of the iPAD, not the BACK!

    • Written by from MADISON

    Placing any cover on a beautifully designed product such as the iPad or iPhone is not my favorite thing to do but it is required in order to maintain pristine condition. The day I purchased my iPad online, I quickly added this cover but I failed to study this cover in detail.
    While this cover is a decent product it does absolutely nothing to protect the back of the iPad. The Apple cover for my iPad 1, while simple, protected the entire iPad 1 front and back.
    I consider this "new" cover a wasted effort and wasted money. I wanted a cover that protects the entire iPad! This cover fails to perform such a simple task.

    Horrible for 3rd generation iPad

    • Written by from PORT ISABEL

    I bought my iPad smart cover (product red) when I purchased my iPad 2, and it was a wonderful thing, I was completely in love with it, it worked amazing, but when I decided to upgrade to the 3rd generation iPad, it's been a nightmare the cover somehow does not stay on like it did with the iPad 2, any little movement it comes of, specially trying to move it when watching a movie, I have dropped my iPad due to this, I guess the magnets are not as strong as before or maybe it does not make contact as it did before, so I would not recommend this case for the new iPad, because you will have problems with it, as I did!

    Great design. Poor choice of materials.

    • Written by from Atlanta

    Well, the design of the smart cover is brilliant. I protects the screen, shuts the iPad on and off, acts as a stand, and does all this without adding hardly any bulk to the iPad like so many portfolio cases do.

    So why only three stars? Poor material choice. The polyurethane feels really nice, but it scratches and stains too easily. It got marks from just being in my backpack a few hours. It's like a you need to buy a case for your case. Also, stronger magnets would be nice to keep the case closed.

    Not worth the money

    • Written by from Lindenhurst

    While the design is visually appealing and clever, the actual experience is anything but satisfactory. The magnet that holds the cover to the iPad is not very strong. Several times each day, the cover and the iPad disconnect from each other which often means the iPad falls whatever distance to the nearest surface. It also disconnects when it is in my purse or laptop bag. I have scratched my screen as items shift in my bag and the screen is no longer protected. You can find much better options with a google search.

    absolute garbage

    • Written by from Keller

    This is the biggest piece of trash I have ever spent money on. I would return it, but this product isn't worth the cost of shipping. I am truly dumbfounded as to why apple would attatch their name to something so rediculous.

    not too happy

    • Written by from Mississauga

    i bought this because of the bulk of my griffin intellicase..bad decision

    just 2 days of use later the back is filled with scratches..i have to carry it around like a delicate piece of equipment, even when handling the case, the magnets aren't strong enough to hold while watching movies. for the price its NOT worth it.

    yeah the no bulk is a great factor and the suede cleans the screen but if you already have a screen protector the suede does nothing and even if you don't, all you'll get is dust on the screen which the suede will help in comparison to a regular magnetic on/off case.

    i am a 100% apple customer, own everything by them and love everything, but this was a disappoinment

    Smart cover? Dumb cover.

    • Written by from Redlands

    This was a waste of money. The magnet is weak. Stand function is weak. Protection is far from sufficient. Definitely not a good option if kids will be using it. I upgraded from the original iPad and case and there weren't many Apple-recommended options. Throwing this one away and buying a 3rd party case.
