    Not protection for iPad

    • Written by from SEVIERVILLE

    This case is very poorly designed. At first it fits ok, but it loosens very quickly, even if you hardly ever remove the iPad from it, & then the iPad just falls out. It looks dirty almost immediately as well. The stand part is useless from the beginning. Just don't buy it.

    I just bought the iPad mini smart case today and I don't usually write reviews, but this case is so amazing I had to. I bought a cheaper case for $12 dollars and it could never even come close to this. The cheap case did not stand fairly well in landscape mode or any other way. It kept making my iPad mini drop on my wood table and it even has some scratches on the side of the ipad. I would recommend this product the case stands really well and I had no problems.

    Love the case... Has great fit, feel, form and function... Only thing I could ask for is a better selection of colours. What if you like purple? What if you like pink? How about a darker blue?

    3 months later - lesson learned - Looks aren't everything

    • Written by from Mississauga

    Loved my Smart Case when I first received it. Really nice shade of blue, high quality leather. 3 months later and it's definitely a HUGE disappointment. Enough stretch in the ipad occurred, that the ipad mini (with retina) fell out and cracked. AHHHHHH!!! Of coarse, even with their inferior quality product, this is not covered by Apple Warranty. So, an $800 Ipad now has a crack which is a constant reminder to me. So, if you don't use your ipad mini a lot --- keep it mostly at home, this cover may be sufficient for you. But, be ware, it will stretch and your ipad will fall out. Hope it lands on the carpet when this happens..

    Flawed design

    • Written by from Redlands

    I bought my wife an iPad mini with this light blue Smart Case as a gift. She liked the color, feel, and fit. However, it simply doesn’t work as a stand for watching video, lap reading, or typing. It collapses within a few minutes even when watching video on a solid kitchen table. On a kitchen table it holds the mini upright just long enough to make you believe that a bit more use will crease the fold more so it will work. She used it for two weeks but it never got better. Watching her frustration using it on an airline tray table was the final straw that caused me to order a Logitech case with a sturdier stand.

    I’ve been buying Apple products since 1983 (Apple IIe) and this is the first that was a total disappointment—steer clear of this one.

    More than I expected!

    • Written by from Tijeras

    I went to purchase this case last night. Was hesitant due to how busy stores are right after the Holiday, however I was pleasantly surprised by Apples amazing customer service, as this purchase took me less than 5 minutes.
    The staff is amazing, extremely knowledgeable & most importantly kind.
    This case is much more than I expected: simply LOVE IT! I don't even know exactly what I paid, and don't care. As if anyone is concerned with the price of a case to protect your investment in a IPad Mini, then you probably shouldn't have one.
    The case is awesome, and when closed puts your IPad to sleep.They have gorgeous colors, so something for everyone.
    So don't hesitate to buy this case, it's Soft & seems like a Suede on the inside, without the Suede feel, which I hate.
    Love it & Thank you APPLE: you have once again outdone yourselves.

    Although I was really hesitant to spend so much money on a case for my Mini Retina, I am mostly pleased with the fit and quality. I spent a lot of time researching that popular online retailer and got tired of sorting through high and low reviews and whether the covers or cases would fit or not, or the magnet worked or not. I needed a case sooner than later. Here, there is never any question about this case. It's leather, well-made, fits, not bulky, stands up for viewing, and protects my investment. Plus it looks nice.

    5 days and fairly pleased

    This cover has a really nice feel....leather is super soft to the touch. Which is great but some may find it a little slippery...overall though I don't find this to be the case. $70 is alot to pay but seems like it is very well made....I got the baseball glove color and can see it weathering in nicely but may steer clear of the light blue as it may be more apt to get dirty and show its wear.
