    Smart case

    • Written by from poway

    I've had my smart case for about 1 year. A little disappointed with the quality for the price. It's been slowly separating around the edges. I thought it would last longer.

    It was pretty good

    • Written by

    I liked the style of the case, but I dropped my I pad mini on a corner and my case only covered the screen not the bottom so it cracked. I was very unhappy with myself. However I did like it and how it folded. The only thing I'm to crazy about is the price. I think its a bit to much. I plan on getting the iPad air for myself and getting a smart cover case that covers all of it and getting another case like a sleeve. I really don't want to crack it! Wish me luck!

    Inferior to the last version

    • Written by from Irvine

    Pros
    -Nice material
    -Fits extremely well
    -Reasonably protective

    Cons
    -Stand viewing angle is too steep, steeper than the last version. Poking the screen while it's on the stand is easily enough to knock it over.
    -Magnetic latch is not strong enough.
    -3-folding design is inferior to the 4-folding design. It's far less secure as a stand. Not only is it easily knocked over, but the stand collapses easily as well.
    -Also can't be used as a handle the way the last version was.

    Not sturdy for classroom use.

    • Written by from Hatboro

    I purchased this cover to hold my school appointed iPad but I am disappointed with the quality. I have had this case since June and was first pleased with it's slim design. I appreciated it being light weight since I carry it around as I teach. Last night, I put the iPad in my book bag in what I thought was a safe manner. However at school, I noticed the cover was bent and appears to be separating. I expected an Apple product to be able to handle general classroom use considering it's high cost. I will not recommend this case for our classroom set of iPads.

    Very bad

    • Written by from Alexandria

    Although it completely covers the ipad which is supposed to offer full protection for the screen and body, yet it gets very dirty easily, it is not will aligned with the ipad dimensions and buttons, by time the ipad falls out of the case easily which offers poor protection if the ipad is flipped or fall on the ground.
    I don't recommend buying it.
    the only thing that makes me believe that this is an Apple product is its price

    Did not like and returned it

    • Written by from Media

    This is a very expensive case and I really was hoping it would be fantastic but I was very disappointed. The ipad 4 just fit into it. The corners were very hard to get to click around the device. When you went to hold it and folded back the smart cover, the side rolled off of the ipad. When you held it in both hands both the sides would roll off. It is padded so will protect the back and sides of the ipad but if the cover keeps slipping off to where you can't trust it at all and the ipad falls out - it's not worth the money invested. It's a shame. I think I would rather have had the back part of the case a harder material than the softer rubber. Hopefully Apple will redesign this case and make it worth the price they are asking.

    Not Worth It's Price.

    • Written by from London

    For the price that the iPad case costs the stand does not work. I've had it standing up being supported by the case and I'll tap it ever so slightly and then it'll fall over so easily. The case also gets dirty easily from pen marks and food stains.

    Disappointed

    • Written by from bend

    I use my iPad all the time. I bought this case in January and by March the magnetic parts no longer worked and it never stayed closed. When I had the case open it also never stuck to the back of the iPad. This case is not worth what you will spend on it. I have found several other cases that are cheaper and work much better.

    Mixed feelings.

    • Written by from San Rafael

    The case itself is protective, well-built, slim, pretty (and Dark Gray makes the iPad look beautiful, unlike the brighter colors), the problem's the thing not closing correctly. Walking with iPad on hand, constantly hearing the lock sound, and also fits quite loose (I own a 4), thanks to the flop of the decade: iPad 3. Too fat. But other than those two minor issues, I highly recommend it.

    Don't buy this

    • Written by from El Cerrito

    This product is just awful. I had an urge to buy it, so I did. I have the iPad 4, and the case fits very loose. The stand is not so good. It wiggles back and forth. The polyurethane gets dirty so quickly. I got mine only a couple months ago and the glue adhesive is completely off. Some positive things about the case is that it covers the iPad well, which should be minimal considering the circumstances. This case is not worth $50, I've seen much better ones that cost a lot less than that. You should not buy this at all. I'll be a big waste of your money.

    I love smart case!

    • Written by from Riga

    I choose ipad smart case to protect ipad from all sides. This case in my family we love very much. It is perfectly protect - front, rear sides, edges, display. Now we have 3 ipads and each of them is in smart case. I suggest this to anyone who expect no compromises.

    Changed it for another one

    • Written by from Mason

    The Smart Case is just that, a Case. I have to agree with other reviews, it does not close properly all the time, and almost all the time you want to stand up the iPad, it falls back. I purchased this based on the fact that Apple makes great accessories, but this time they failed.

    Started off a good product

    • Written by from Inkster

    Ok the cheap cases I had in the past didn't hold up so assuming since this was an apple product I thought It would hold up...NOT the magnetic closure doesn't stay connected I dont know what happened but it just stop working/staying closed. It never aligned well, and the price of it too much wasn't worth it I truly feel this was a waste of money!

    Quite Unhappy

    • Written by from Hilo

    I have had this case for several months and am just disappointed. It gets dirty very quickly. It is loose, so a lot of debris and dirt gets trapped between the case and the iPad. The looseness of the case also makes it difficult to plug in the charger and occasionally covers the camera lens slightly. The typing angle isn't high enough, and the movie viewing angle is so wobbly that it has fell on its screen several times, because the table was slightly bumped. The cover doesn't stay securely attached to the back of the iPad case when open, which is one of the most annoying aspects. The edges of the case is sharp, which would look and feel better if they were smooth, and the glue on the edges of mine is already separating from the case.

    One thing I do like is the look of it when it is closed, but that is pretty much it. More color options would be nice, like black.

    Overall, is it worth the cost? No. Would I buy another? Not really, unless it was about $5-10.

    Love my iPad Smart Cases...

    • Written by from Mississauga

    Bought myself the red Smart Case last August to go with the iPad 3 I got for my 40th birthday. Love the fit, the look, the feel and the colour. The cover opens and closes just fine. The volumn and off button are protected. It's easy to plug in the charger and ear buds. Seriously I have no complaints whatsoever.

    I am overly protective of my iPad & case. :) I don't let my kids touch it. They can touch their own devices. I make sure I have a clean surface when using it. If I take it anywhere it goes into a soft bag for safe travels. There is barely a mark on the red case.

    Since then I have gotten the green one for Christmas, the blue and also the pink one for my 41st birthday. Love, love, love them all.

    As much as I love my cases I understand peoples complaint about the digging into the hands. The iPad isn't that light so after awhile it does hurt.

    A suggestion I have for those that aren't happy with it digging into your hands when holding it...I sit mine on my stomach or lap and hold the back of it with the palm of my hand. Works like a charm for me.

    Great Case that Lasts for Years

    • Written by from Dallas

    I bought my IPad 2 case about 2 years ago. I tried several others thinking I would find something better. I trashed all the others since none compare to this Apple IPad cover. Great product. Holds up well. Always magnetically closes, snug, compact, not bulky.

    Great case!

    • Written by from Ottawa

    I've been using the case for a month now, and am very satisfied. The case provides additional protection, while maintaining the slim profile of the iPad. The iPad fits snugly, and the covered buttons (ie, volume) still respond well. The sound also seems to come through clearly, despite the speaker being covered. The folding cover is also actually quite sturdy as a stand. Any scuffs on the case have wiped clean so far. Highly recommended!

    Poor quality...

    • Written by from Bogotá

    My iPad Smart Case Dark Gray is about to be fully dismantled after less than 10 months of moderate use. Apparently, there is no guarantee. I think it is a very expensive product to make it be of such poor quality. Additional to this, Apple does not seem interested on what happens to these products after a certain time. I am very unhappy with this purchase.
