    Miss the four-fold

    • Written by from Hong Kong

    The good

    - great looks and good manufacturing standard
    - metal hinge gone (subject to me replacing a previous one) so this one will last longer

    The BIG bad

    - three fold doesn't make sense. Please change back to four fold

    Reasons:

    1. I don't want the micro-fiber to expose all times (catch dirt, etc)
    2. Micro-fiber fold out, difficult to grip with my hands as fold WAY TOO BIG
    3. Can't fold into a stack like the previous one
    4. Doesn't stay attached to the back, so reading like a book with two hands you're constantly fiddling with the cover at the back
    5. Micro-fiber in, it is possible to grip with my hands but it's not stable. I usually fold it micro-fiber in, to protect it and then it fails eventually (only magnet hold it laterally).

    So basically, I will buy a four-fold air cover the minute it's out on the market.

    Cover closes well but stand option is gone

    The magnets in this cover hold it tightly to the iPad as others have already commented. Since the iPad air isn't as wide, they should have narrowed the folds in the cover. Due to the large folds, the 'stand' functionality of past covers is no longer functional. Apple should fix these and replace them. For $39 I expected the same product as I have with my iPad 2.
