    Much improved

    • Written by from Portland

    This is an excellent case. It is good-looking, lightweight and fits more snugly than the polyurethane model available for the earlier iPad version. Having the cover folded for typing feels very secure. In the upright position, it is less secure than the earlier four panel cover version, but works very well if you don't push against it too hard. If I typed on it more than an hour a day I would consider a keyboard case, say from Logitech. Otherwise this is a very good trade-off of a little extra weight for protection and added functionality.

    Awesome product

    • Written by from Miami

    Apple, you did a great job with this new design ! Can't understand some of the comments I read. Those either just don't like it or are interested in some other products. Sharp edges that were obvious in previous designed cases are gone. Thank you !
    Five stars from this happy user!

    EVERYONE COMPLAINING IS USING THIS WRONG!!!!

    • Written by from los angeles

    Let me start off by saying, wow this case looks great! The brown leather gave my new iPad a timeless look, plus he microfiber on the inner cover of the case doubles as a cleaning cloth for your device. I've read the bad reviews and I have come to the conclusion that everyone is using it wrong. I witnessed this the first night I got mine. My girlfriend went to grab the iPad and place it in stand position and it would not stop toppling over. I then realized she had been folding the stand incorrectly, having the leather exposed instead of the correct way with the microfiber exposed.


    MAKE SURE WHEN YOU FOLD THE STAND THE MICROFIBER IS EXPOSED!!!!!


    problem solved ��

    Great case!

    • Written by from Antwerpen

    Brought a black smart case for my iPad air at the apple store. I like it a lot and I don't get what people are complaining about. It works great as a stand, protects the iPad... It just does what it needs to do. Maybe the complainers don't know how to use the stand/case? Or do they have the wrong case?

    There is one thing though: $79 is pretty expensive for paper board and a little leather. But hey, if the product does what it does and there is nothing else that's better at it...

    Beware of Bad Reviews

    • Written by from Lake Orion

    First off, this product is an amazing one at least. The leather is quality, the magnets are strong, the feel is amazing, and there is just enough wiggle room so it fits securely but not too tight.

    BEWARE OF BAD REVIEWERS!!!! This product works EXACTLY how it is supposed to. Those giving it bad reviews don't like the product because it is not for them and they give it a bad review. The magnets hold up in both positions and anyone who says otherwise isn't using it right. It fits snug, good viewing angles, and 3 panel system makes for quicker easier set-up. The cover moves around a little, but how else are you supposed to get it off if there is no lip hanging off. We'll designed and thought out. Simply amazing.

    Great Case/Cover...if you use it right

    • Written by from Austin

    There are a few reviews here and elsewhere that say the iPad will fall over when using the stand in either the Keyboard Stand or the Movie Stand.
    This is true only if you put the finished leather facing down (touching the table/desk), this is much more slick than the microfiber inner lining and it will fall very easy.
    If you make the stand with the microfiber facing down (touching the table/desk) it will have a much tougher time falling if it ever does since its not as slick as the leather.
    Try this way out and you will see that the stand is much more stable and you also will not scratch your nice leather.

    I'm very satisfied with the Smart case now and its looks quite nice as well.

    Excellent Case for the iPad Air

    • Written by from Murphysboro

    While I think the iPad Air feels sturdy enough to withstand some abuse without a case, I carry mine in a bag to work, and take it out frequently to access PDF's, take photos, and send short emails. For my use the Smart Case is perfect.

    The case was easy to put on and has a great appearance that will get better with use. The cover folds up nicely, accordion style, when I have it open. The additional weight it adds is barely noticeable to me. I don't use it as a stand too often, but when I do it works as advertised. Some users have complained about the small gap near the left edge of the case and the face of the iPad. It is noticeable, but hardly a problem for me. I expect that it will go away as the hinge gets more broken in.

    My only small gripe would be that the cover could be slightly stiffer. Although the magnets are strong enough, it tends to slide around a bit while carrying the iPad. Otherwise, it is a great looking, high-quality case.

    Highly recommended.

    As good as it gets

    • Written by from ORLEANS

    Great product. Honestly. The feel and functionality meet a great product. I was a bit hesitant to spend $89 for it but once I wrapped it around the iPAD, it just felt good. The flap gets nicely closed to the back of the case when its opened. The smooth and soft feel of the suede or Microfiber protects the screen and cleans the screen from constant touching.

    Snug fit

    • Written by from AUBURN

    The fit of this case is very good. The tricky little surprise is when you close the lid, the ipad goes to sleep. When you "peak" it wakes up. Cool. Only negative is that it does not go vertical with the support. It does allow you to hang on to it without slippage and protects it with minimal bulk. Fun colors.

    Brown Looks Very Classy

    • Written by from BEDFORD

    Just purchase the Brown smart case for my new iPad Air and so glad I didn't get another color. The Brown looks very classy on the Air....I think it will look very nice even when the leather weathers a bit.
    The fit is perfect, no share edges like on the smart case for the previous generation iPad.

    As far as protection goes I'm sure it will take care of the iPad Air for lite bumps and minor drops just like the previous one.

    I did consider the Black but once I seen the Brown I was hooked.
