    Buy after market

    • Written by from Calgary

    The cover slips, the iPad turns on and off when carring the iPad with the cover on. The cover doesn't allow the user to prop the iPad at an angle for use.

    Good idea but not up to Apple usablilty expectations

    • Written by from Los Altos Hills

    Hard to read with cover on, falls over easily when standing.

    Magnet attachment let's go too easily.

    I am taking mine back and getting a cover that is usable.

    Terrible product!

    • Written by from Morris Plains

    Cover does not go on easily and does not stay on when opening, closing, carrying or even holding on my lap and reading. Aside from the fact that it puts the iPad to sleep, it has no other conceivable function. Does not protect unit at all. Polyurethane has a terrible odor. Chose Dark Gray for my husband because the other colors are just ridiculous for a grown man. Gray just looks dirty and drab. And to the users who are all excited that they can buy a back cover from Amazon, wouldn't it be so much niftier if Apple made a decent full cover instead of a half-arsed half cover?

    Beige I Pad Cover.

    • Written by from Southfield

    I purchased the beige leather cover and less than one week, it was dirty. The leather is not cleanable. This is the first Apple purchase that I have not been happy with.

    Do not waste your money; I really am dissatisfied with this cover; it keeps coming off my iPad mini. I will just wait until the come out with a cover that covers the entire unit.

    Slight of hand

    • Written by from Montrose

    Are you kidding me? $40 for this piece of junk? Do not buy. So many better choices offering better functionality & protection. Magnetic attachment is flimsy. Fold up stand positions do not hold shape. Total apple product house - love devices - but this cover is awful!

    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 recommended

    • Written by from Collingdale

    Of all the products bought from Apple over the years, this was only disappointment. Cover does not stay on and, despite all the warnings I read, still managed to have iPad slip out and crack. New iPad, one week old, not happy. Immediately put it in my old case and there it will stay, not paying the $300 to get it replaced.

    NOT for travel.

    • Written by from Chicago

    I got my case today, and while it looks really snappy, it's utterly useless for the ONE REASON I bought the thing. I would NEVER use this cover alone for travelling. It is far too flimsy and will not protect your device from even the most gentle trip through an airport x-ray machine.

    I wouldn't even put it in a purse or day bag with this cover on it. It's guaranteed to fall off and you might as well not have it on at all. I'm sure that when my husband sees his, he'll want to send it back immediately.

    This is extremely disappointing. I'm now forced to buy yet another hard case for travelling because that's why I own an IPad in the first place.

    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.

    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..

    Poor quality

    • Written by from Louisville

    Did not perform as expected. The cover does not fold into a good stand, and the magnets stopped working after a couple of weeks.

    A big step back

    • Written by from Belmont

    I had a nice leather Smart Cover for my 4th generation iPad that I really liked. So when I got my iPad Air 2, of course I would get another nice Smart Cover. Nope. Apple doesn't make it in leather anymore. So I got the red plastic cover reluctantly. I took it back within 48 hours. It was a fingerprint magnet. So I reluctantly got a dark gray version. At least now I don't see every smudge...

    The current Smart Cover is the same as the one for the original iPad Air, so others know this already but it was a surprise to me. It has three panels instread of four. The old one always held the triangular shape. It's very hard for three panels to hold this shape. The old one had a nIce metal hinge that let it fold completely over. This one doesn't have a good hinge and seems to fall off a lot.

    I have since gotten a case with a four-panel cover that works just like the old Smart Cover.. So that proves that four panels are still possible even though the Air is slightly smaller than the previous iPads. I would prefer to have a cover vs. a case but that's what it took to get a cover that works. I think Apple took as big a step back with the Air Smart Cover as they took a step forward with the Air and Air 2. Apple seems to have forgotten that a cover or case contribute significantly to the ease and comfort of holding the iPad. It's not just a protective cover. Why sell something that makes it hard to use?

    Awful Product - If I could give negative stars I would

    • Written by from Salem

    From day one, this case has never propped up my iPad. The case always always flops over. Also, the case is now cracked in many places. I have had this cover for just over one year. I rarely use my iPad. This is an A-W-F-U-L product!!! Do NOT buy this product! Based on the other reviews I have read, I am not alone.

    Hey Appple! I want my money back. I think your billionaire company can afford it! I expect a response, apology and refund quickly.

    horrible cover - 0 star

    • Written by from Rio de Janeiro

    Hi, Apple, and thanks for making this cover because it gets dirty! Cover only fits one way! When you are in the stand mode, iPad slips right off! And there goes your $400-530 iPad with all your data on it. Screen cracks, cover slips right off and I'm disposing of this now

    Corner screen cracked - Cover just slipped off

    • Written by from Utrecht

    This cover is slim, it slides into place easily and then fits snuggly. Unfortunately, it also comes off very easily. The first week I had my iPad Air I took the ipad from the table to my couch and along the way - slam - the iPad slipped out of the cover, out of my hands and fell on the hardwood floor. One of the corners of the screen cracked immediately.

    I do prefer slim - my iPhone has only the screen protector - but this cover gives you unconsciously the suggestion you can pick it up a certain way, when you can't. If you don't want to risk having your screen cracked - buy the case. It's also easier for traveling as the back is obviously protected.
