    Smart cover

    Works nicely on the iPAD 3rd Gen. Where are the black and red covers?

    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.

    Doesn't stays on the ipad

    • Written by from Iowa City

    keeps falling off easily, not sure if I received a flawed one or it is the same for every smart cover. Extremely disappointed.

    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.

    When SJ announced this when IPad2 came out I thot he was a mind reader. I love the thinness of iPad but u do need to protect the glass. But wrapping it in something thick is ridiculous. This solves the problem - protects the glass and preserves the small size. The back is aluminum so its very tough so not covering that is no big deal. Plus the back of an iPad is beautiful - why cover it up!? And of course the whole way the cover works is just cool.

    My only advice is get a very dark color. I got a red leather one and if it gets stained its hard to clean stained leather (not an Apple problem its just the way leather is). So i got a black one and stains are not a problem. I suppose the grey one might be good for dirt as well.

    Can't imagine my iPad without this cover. Also i was able to move my black one over to my 3rd gen iPad with no problem.

    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.

    Like this better than the full cover

    • Written by from Coral Springs

    I've had both this cover and the full magnetic cover and I prefer this one. I don't fold the covers all the way back making it easier to grip and use the camera. I prefer to fold it in half and the ends at the fold tend to stretch a bit on both cases. Both my cases were blue an the dirt does show. The full cover to me is bulky and hard to slide into my purse. It does protect better but it's just so bulky and since the most delicate part is the screen, this cover works fine for me - no damage when it fell on hardwood floor. I use my iPad all the time and the magnet holds just fine and I don't see any scratches. I'm getting a new black one now.

    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.

    Love it

    • Written by from Bellflower

    Whoever rated this negative is crazy this case is the best case I've ever bought it protects my iPad I love the color I got in pink yes it gets dirty but all you do is easily wipe it clean. I love everything about it I even told my boyfriend for Christmas I want it in green but this time I'll get the smart case so it can protect the front and the back :)

    No protection, but small

    • Written by from River Falls

    This is not a protective case at all. The metal on the side of the iPad leaves marks. I would definitely recommend the smartCOVER over the smartCASE,because that is almost just as slim, but way more protective.
