Product Information

  • Thin, minimal design.

    The lightweight, durable Smart Cover has been completely redesigned for the all-new design of iPad Air. It protects your iPad Air screen without covering up its durable aluminum back. So your iPad still looks and feels like an iPad — just with a little extra protection.

    Polyurethane design.

    The Smart Cover is made of polyurethane and comes in six great colors. It also features a soft, color-matched microfiber lining that helps keep your display clean.

    Magnetic connection.

    A hinge magnetically aligns the Smart Cover with iPad Air for a perfect fit, while magnets inside help it stay put.

    Keyboard stand.

    The Smart Cover does double duty as a keyboard stand. Fold it back to tilt iPad Air into a comfortable writing position.

    Wake on open. Sleep on close.

    Open the Smart Cover, and iPad Air magically wakes up. Close it, and iPad Air automatically goes to sleep.

    FaceTime and movie stand.

    The Smart Cover folds in just the right places to become the perfect FaceTime and movie-watching stand.

  • A big step back as a keyboard stand

    2.0 out of 5 stars

    Before this I had iPad 3 and the Smart Cover is way better. The new one's three fold design makes better to hold iPad up for photo Before this I had iPad 3 and the Smart Cover is way better. The new one's three fold design makes better to hold iPad up for photo and video but the connection part is so unstable now that typing experience just got much much worse, it's considerably more unstable that I find it annoying typing on a constantly shaking surface.

  • Much worse than original Smart Cover

    After using a 3rd generation iPad with the original leather Smart Cover and loving it, I bought a new Smart Cover with my iPad air After using a 3rd generation iPad with the original leather Smart Cover and loving it, I bought a new Smart Cover with my iPad air. The new covers are worse in every way. The three panels instead of four causes the cover to be less stable when in its stand position, and the cover did not stay on the iPad very well and shifted back and forth, leaving parts of the screen exposed. I was also disappointed at the lack of a leather option. I returned the new Smart Cover and will be looking for a different option.

This one not so much. Seems like since they completely covered up the magnet that connects it to the iPad its not as stable. I falls off all the time and I certainly can't use it on my lap because it always folds out. They really didn't think this one thru. Will probably return it and look for alternatives. Especially at a $39 price point. Not good. Feels very cheap

    Being very critical about what to put on my iPads , this cover is perfect for what it's designed to do..... Cover the iPad. It's lightweight compliments the air perfectly. It's not meant to be bullet proof, waterproof or anything else. If you want that buy otter box or whatever bulky case is popular. Do it. This is simplistic for a reason. The reason you bought an "air" in the first place. I rock a clear skin on the back. Not a back case but a cheap clear skin I got online. And this cover isn't going to stand upright, laid down or whatever like a bulky, heavy aftermarket cover. All the layouts it is designed for meets all expectations. Don't let over critical or overprotection ruin the simplistic experience.... Will it get dirty.. Yeah.. So wash your hands. Treat your device the way you want to. Bulky and weighed down so you can throw it off your balcony ! Or in your home or workplace where this product is meant for ,where you're not spilling beer or your dog chews on it.... AND WHEN I FOLD MINE TO THE BACK, the magnets DO HOLD IT FLUSH TO THE BACK. Again, very critical, but very happy with cover..... And by the way, I don't put some POS case on my iPhone. These products are designed to look and feel very premier.. And they are.... Happy with cover. Happy not over cluttering and letting what Apple does best. Design and usability. P.s.
    Not a super fanboy... Just someone who understands quality. You get what you pay for.. And I don't work for free. Oh, and my cover is BLACK.

    What happened to quality, not sure what Apple was thinking. I had an iPad 2 with the leather smart cover, great quality and a feel What happened to quality, not sure what Apple was thinking. I had an iPad 2 with the leather smart cover, great quality and a feel that it was worthy of my $700 iPad, great to drag into a business meeting. Bought an iPad air, wanted to buy another leather cover, looks more professional, but ah the feeling of cheap flimsy polyurethane. Don't waist your money.

    Um folks, you do realize that you have to fold the Smart Cover with the microfiber side out, right? Those who are criticizing the Um folks, you do realize that you have to fold the Smart Cover with the microfiber side out, right? Those who are criticizing the design because it collapses too easily when used as a stand are obviously folding it the opposite (wrong) way. I also noticed mention of the cover not lining up correctly, exposing part of the screen when closed. That would be because it has been attached upside-down, with the microfiber side away from the screen (when closed). The magnets don't line up correctly when you try to attach it the wrong way which causes the cover to shift to one side.

    Used as intended, this version of the Smart Cover is really pretty much perfect. Folded correctly, it is actually just as strong as the covers for previous generation iPads, and its magnetic attachment to the iPad itself is even stronger than before. I have used it as a typing stand and as a vertical stand for watching video and it is extremely solid in both orientations.

    So don't be put off by the "user-error"-induced negative reviews. Buy with confidence assured that this cover is just as sturdy (and then some) as previous versions.
