    Disappointed

    • Written by from Cincinnati

    I have always wanted a Smart Cover for my iPad and was so excited to get one. Got it home and discovered that it did not fit the new iPad securely at all, especially in the corners and on the "binding" side of the case. I love the color and was so disappointed that it did not fit well. I returned it and bought a different case.

    pain in the hands

    • Written by from Griffin

    This product has two significant issues. The number one issue are the sharp edges (seams) that join the back and the top edge. This sharp edge cuts into the hand as you hold the iPad. Apple spent a lot of time refining the feel of the iPad in your hand. Why they didn't do the same with this product is a mystery. Second issue is the screen cover flap. Once in place it becomes a struggle to lift the edge to Peel it back to use the iPad. A simple grab tab would have solved the problem. I considered taking a piece of sandpaper to the edge to smooth it out, but realized this would make it impossible to return if my experiment resulted in destroying the case. The third issue is the $49 price for what essentially is a 50 cent piece of refrigerator magnet molded to fit the curves of the device.

    Terrible!

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    This thing is absolutely terrible. It is uncomfortable to hold. It makes your ipad look like it's wearing an oversized clothing. The flap is not easy to open if you don't have nails and when you open and flip it to the back it doesn't get attached to the back cover so it hangs off your fingers which I find very uncomfortable. And on top of all that it is not cheap. A definite return!

    HATED IT!

    • Written by from westlake

    It was cheap, left these weird smudge lines on the screen where the case was creased to fold. The top flap was so difficult to grab when lifting the flap take off most of the time (imagine trying to pick a single piece of paper off a desk top) and the other time it slid off and would not stay in place. Returned it the next day. An embarrassment to all Apple products.

    The glue between the frame and the back doesn’t work.

    The glue between the frame and the back doesn’t work. Then the iPad falls out.

    Not worth it

    • Written by from Sparwood

    I got this for Christmas, along with the new iPad. While it does a decent job protecting the back of my iPad, the front flap is horrendous. It stopped putting my iPad to sleep and waking it up after three weeks, and the magnets are so weak that the flap doesn't stay closed. Often, I'll go into my backpack and find that it slid to the side, exposing the screen. The 'stand' option is flimsy at best. My only good thing about it is that it puts the iPad at the right angle to function as a keyboard prop up. The edges are sharp as well, making it difficult to hold onto for any length of time. The flap also leaves lines across the screen from where it folds. It's not worth the $60

    Ouch

    Great case.
    However, sharp edges make it uncomfortable to use for very long.

    Landscape position bad, more colors needed

    • Written by from Aurora

    Don't like viewing angle of the landscape position. Hard to view screen when angle is almost at 90 degrees instead of comfortable 45 degrees. Had cover for 2 woks and angle still has not broken in or changed. Also don't like color options. Why is black not available?

    Smart Case

    • Written by from WHITE BIRD

    Love my case, it is light, and really doesn't add any weight to the I-pad. The only thing is the colors offered. Maybe they could add a better selection, I wish I had gotten the dark grey, some tans or dark brown maybe black would be nice!

    Sleek

    • Written by from Redwood City

    This is a great case. The dark grey gives the black iPad a sleek, clean look. The "hinge" is fine, doesn't prohibit proper closing of the case. The outer lip does add some length and width the the screen, but its hardly noticeable. The cut outs are perfect and the speaker cutouts actually amplify the sound. A little pricy, but worth it for quality. Overall a solid case and cover.

    The iPad 2 smart case is awesome.

    I love the iPad 2 smart case cover. It protects the whole iPad within a clean and soft way. None other than the less of the new iPad cover.

    Fits great- good protection

    • Written by from Pawleys

    The smart case fits really well. The texture of the case feels good in my hand and makes me confident that my iPad investment is safe. My only complaint is that the upright viewing angle is a bit too high. Bonus points for the custom engraving!

    New Ipad Smart Case Is NOT Smart

    • Written by

    The black polyurethane case we bought with our first ipad (the day they were released) has held up EXCELLENT and was an EXCELLENT design. the "keyboard view" was perfect - the front cover just slipped into a slit in the back. This new one with the multifold front cover WILL NOT HOLD IN KEYBOARD VIEW. Please make the old version available for the new ipads and allow trade in because the bad design is your fault.

    Falls over in landscape FaceTime position

    • Written by from Highland

    When I use this case in landscape view, it will fall down! I'm afraid of it breaking my iPad! I always have to hold it, and it gets annoying! I asked apple about this problem and they say it just needs to be broken in. I've had it for about 3 months! When will it be broken in? I do not like this case at all!

    NO PROTECTION - can't give 0 starts

    • Written by from Allentown

    This cover provides no protection to your iPad other than maybe a little screen scratch protection. It is flimsy & the unit will need to be put into another sleeve or cover for structural protection...do not use this alone!

    Good but not worth 50

    • Written by from Zion

    The product itself is good, however the material that its made with is not worth $50. If you want something that feels expensive look elsewhere.

    Really Disappointed for the price

    • Written by from Greenfield

    I bought this from Apple because I wanted something fitted by the people who made the device.

    What I received was a big disappointment. The case edge rolls off the device where the cover folds back. It's a constant irritation to have to pop it back over the lip.

    The other big issue is that the case was designed to fit previous model iPads, so it has the bigger hole for the 30-pin connector. Unfortunately, that hole is not aligned to the lightning connector properly, so when I plug the device in to charge it, the case slightly obstructs the connector, often causing the device not to charge.

    For the price and being directly from Apple, I expected flawless. I didn't get that kind of product. Not by a long shot. Do not recommend.

    Love this case!

    • Written by from Mira loma

    I think this is a great case for the iPad. I have the newest generation iPad & bought a case initially for it, not from Apple. That case never closed well, my iPad was slipping out. I read reviews for this case and decided to try it. I bought it and love it! No complaints with it holding the iPad in or it falling out. It's not padded which I think is okay but I like that it keeps the iPad size still thin. I do love how the cover snaps on and you hear that click. The color is great, although I wish the colors were brighter. Overall, satisfied with this case.
