    Worthless

    • Written by from Warrenton

    Absolutely the worst apple product I've bought, and lately thats saying something.
    Uncomfortable to hold while tri-folded
    Beyond weak...falls easily in the slant mode and will absolutely fall if placed in upright mode if you so much as glance at it the wrong way.
    Do not under any circumstances buy this.... You will regret it

    Dont spend the money

    • Written by from CONROE

    The new design is a 3 panel and weak top magnet instead of the 4 panel full side magnets. This makes for a bulky and uncomfortable ipad to hold while reading. I bought this in store not knowing that the design had changed as I have the same cover on my work ipad air. When you open the cover, it will not magnetize to the back of the case. There are multiple off brand cases that have the same issue, which is why I saved for the apple version. Not so much. Save the money, buy off brand.

    Deal Breaker

    • Written by from Bourbonnais

    I loved my iPad 2 and Smart Case. I bought an iPad Air and went ahead and bought the smart case for it as well. It is a great case but a horrible stand. I sent it back and got the Acme Made Skinny Book Case. It is fabulous and has three ways to view your ipad screen!

    Don't waste your time on this one if you intend on using it at all as a stand. Search on Apple.com cases for the Acme Made Skinny Book Case. You will NOT be disappointed! It is $30 cheaper too!

    Doesn't come with screen protector

    • Written by from College Place

    Don't be fooled by the product description. Yes the case fully closes and protects the screen while not in use but it does not have a screen protector. You'll have to buy one of those separately.

    Hate the colors

    • Written by from Gansevoort

    I have been waiting on getting one of these cases for my iPad Air. I can't stand the boring colors. I had the red for my iPad 2. But when I upgraded, I was hoping more colors would come out. They are still the same boring pastel colors. What about some nice Bright colors- blue, purple, pink, etc.
    Will those ever be coming out or are we stuck in the pastel land.

    Worst thing about about them iPad Air

    • Written by from Canberra

    Wow _ I can't believe the 3 fold design made it through the famed apple design process. It really is terrible to use. The old 4 fold cover was much more functional.

    I am on the lookout for a better case

    • Written by from Washington

    the magnet is very weak making the ipad stand a challenge especially that the cover folds into three instead of four on old ipads

    On the positive side, it fits well and protects fully the iPad

    Better than expected, very pleased

    • Written by from Mabscott

    This case is a lot nicer and sturdier than I expected it to be, very happy about that. Have had no problems with either one of the stand positions, I've used it to watch Netflix on a table and on my bed and it stood up just fine on both surfaces. Fits my iPad Air like a glove and adds hardly any extra weight or bulk. Very satisfied with my Smart Case. Recommended.

    Dont waste your money!

    • Written by from Frederick

    This case is mad expensive for no reason. My ipad fell and it cracked while it was in the case. Plus the case itself broke. Now it wont even hold my iPad .Talk about protection. Honestly so disapointed with this product. Not worth 80 bucks!!! It way too expensive for its quality.

    Its really nice and I recommend

    • Written by from CHICAGO

    I really do like it. Although it is magnetized and doesn't cover the back, I paired it with a clear plastic back cover and it worked out super well. Iike the fact that it does double as a stand for the Ipad and does really work well. It does show stains on front when you don't have super clean hands but they wipe off after a good cleaning. Not a bad magnetized cover, and it shuts your ipad down when you close it up. I would recommend it vs getting an imitation.

    Disappointed in this $80 case.

    • Written by from Sanford

    The iPad Air fits nicely in it and the magnetic lid works perfectly. Unfortunately, the lid is useless as a standard and almost every set of headphones I own will not fit in the cutout hole for the jack. Nice Leather. Just wish they would go back to the old iPad case design. At least the lid would function properly as a stand.

    Is this really an Apple product?

    • Written by from Franklin

    The fit is good, that's the easy part. Function is, well it doesn't function, falls over, tri-fold stand regularly collapses. As a customer I am mad I spent anything on this case, as a shareholder, I'm embarrassed. I can guarantee you Jobs never would have sold this.

    premium price, bad design

    • Written by from wilrijk

    This has to be the worst apple design ever. Yes my iPad air fits, but the cover is useless as a stand, is uncomfortable to hold and doesn't even fold nicely around the back. Shame on you Apple, this doesn't feel like it's 'designed by Apple', more like a cheap Chinese fake.

    Does not stand up well

    • Written by from Aubrey

    This case does not stand up on its side very well. The last gen. iPad smart cover would stand up on its side with no problems. When you finally get this one to stand up you barely touch your iPad and it will tip over (and yes I'm folding it over the correct way). I returned it to the Apple store and the employee there acknowledged that this was a problem with this case; although he didn't want to admit it at first. It is disappointing to see Apple put their name on this product, not to mention for $80!

    The negative reviews don't make sense, it works great!

    • Written by from Delevan

    I ordered the iPad Air Smart Case despite all the negative reviews. I had my doubts from reading all of them, but the case works perfectly and as described. It works via magnetism in all positions. I must say, the black case matches well with my space grey iPad Air. The leather is soft and feels great in your hands, the build quality is superb and all ports match up correctly, even the dual microphones. From normal use, the aniline dye hasn't worn off yet and the microfiber lining does a good job keeping my screen in good shape. The Smart Cover works well and I have had no issues with using it. Hope this helps.

    Great case but too pricey for what it is!

    • Written by from WARRENHEIP

    Today i got the ipad air smart case in blue it feels really good! But i really wanted a green one but i rang everywhere and no one had green!? And the 3 panel folding stand is really bad. It falls down with the littlest pressure applied to it.
    Over all its a great case but too pricey for what you get!
    It would defiantly be good if apple redesigned the ipad smart case with a 4 panel stand.

    The one u'll consider to purchase..

    • Written by from SF

    Actually I wanted to give 3and half stars... I had it for about an year... Since it's getting old, it doesn't stands stable on the desk...it'll often fall over to the back..maybe because there are too many rectangular bars folded inside, and couldn't support the weight of iPad ... Consider this point it might be a little pricy(personally, I think $40 a little above would be just right price to purchase) ... But other than is, it's a cool product. Easy to take off, made of leather, color won't fade crazy(at least mine stays in really good condition), the machine won't get super hot with long time using..and now the store got similar case with 3 bars attached, it might be more comfortable to use I guess...stands more stable...if you are not crazy about pretty design, why don't you just get a right one , and use it forever...^^

    Poor fit and design

    • Written by from BOULDER

    As others have said the cover doesn't close properly, but more importantly, the folding top does not reliably work as a stand and it falls over. I returned the case. Apple, with all it's design smarts, should do better than this - especially for what they are charging for it.

    Nice case but....

    • Written by from Charlotte

    The case fits very well on my iPad Air. But like the other reviews the trifold design could be better. Also not sure that the case is real leather; but it could be. I expected more for $79.99.
