    Works well and as advertised.

    • Written by from New York

    I just upgraded from an iPad 2 with a Smart Cover to an iPad Air with the new Smart Cover. I went through 2 iPad 2 Smart Covers due to hinge wear where the metal meeting the plastic.

    Like the new non-exposed metal design of this one, connection and magnets work as well if not better. I haven't experienced the stability or cover alignment problems that others have (Apple'e exchange policy is great if you do). Seems to stand up well for viewing and is fine in the hand. Magnets work well and cover, on/off control works fine too. I think this is the best solution for weight to screen protection. The red color goes great with the white iPad.

    Nice cover

    Works great as a cover and as a stand when typing on the screen. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it isn't particularly stable when holding the iPad vertical. Any kind of tap rocks the device, and I have already knocked it over a couple of times.

    Very nice and useful product allows to position I Pad air for face time videos and pictures. Also is compliments the I PAD Air in its thin design.

    Perfect companion to the iPad Air

    • Written by from San Antonio

    I love how they redesigned the side where the magnets hold the cover to the iPad. On my iPad 3's (PRODUCT) RED leather Smart Cover the side was metal, but the new iPad Air Smart Cover has the same soft material as the cover itself. No need to worry about scratching the metal anymore.

    Other than that, this cover works the same - propping the tablet up for easy typing or watching a movie. It also still automatically sleeps/wakes the iPad when covered/uncovered. The soft back of the cover does a great job keeping the screen protected when sliding in and out of a backpack or luggage.

    My only complaint is the color is not really red. I'd call it more of a bright orange-red. I'd recommend looking at it in person before you buy - especially if you are wanting more of a cherry red.
