I customarily use the iPad in portrait aspect and hold it in my left hand. When the cover is open and folded to the back, it doesn't sit flat. The joints are loose and keep popping up and down making it very awkward to hold the tablet. Unless I can find a way to stabilize the cover, it's just not going to work for me. It has been a $70 lesson.

      Great fit and feel

      I have an iPad mini 2 and this cover has an impressive fit. The leather also feels great, I should say. As usual, it's a bit pricey (after all, it's Apple), but I have an iPad mini 2 and this cover has an impressive fit. The leather also feels great, I should say. As usual, it's a bit pricey (after all, it's Apple), but I still think it's worth it if you care about quality and looks as well as protection. I haven't dropped the iPad yet, but overall I think the cover protects it quite well against scratches, for example.

      Well now...

This case was real trouble in the beginning. I mean, sure it was a great case: fit snug, felt and looked great, decent protection, etc. But as a stand? It sucked. REALLY badly. Could not *touch* the screen without it falling over... which, of course, made accidental damage more likely. HOWEVER, after a couple of months so the leather could stretch a bit, it actually works great now. I know there will be a few folks telling you forget it, but if you like this thing, give it a fair chance and I think it'll work out really well for you. I for one am thinking just how pristine this little mini will look when I sell it in a few years.

      Stopped gripping and dropped iPad, leaving big dent

      Initially quality seemed fine, but very quickly case stopped holding iPad in place, meaning when holding the iPad above me it falls out. Most of the time I reme Initially quality seemed fine, but very quickly case stopped holding iPad in place, meaning when holding the iPad above me it falls out. Most of the time I remember to grip the iPad and not the case in these circumstances, but it's easy to forget and recently resulted in a large dent from iPad falling out of case. Very poor quality, especially for the price, often I would be safer using no case. When it used to work was a very good product, but would strongly advise not to pay this much for something that loses its most basic function after a few months. Expected much more from the official Apple product.

      Beware of the drop!

As a result my cherished iPad mini 3 has dropped from the case and hit the floor! Thankfully, on both occasions it was a carpeted floor. I certainly would not have expected this from an Apple endorsed case. Needless to say, my iPad is now safely housed in a more robust and reliable case. I would not and could not recommend this case.

      An impressive case, but comes at a price.

      I have this case in brown, for a Mini 3. PROS: beautifully executed, perfect fit, adds no perceived bulk or weight, greatly improves grip, protects all surfa I have this case in brown, for a Mini 3. PROS: beautifully executed, perfect fit, adds no perceived bulk or weight, greatly improves grip, protects all surfaces against scratches, very Apple. CONS: Provides very little impact protection, pricey (very Apple) This Smart Case replaced a third-party heavy duty case I deemed unnecessary. At first, the cover didn't turn my M3 on or off. Checking Settings showed the Lock/Unlock switch ON. I turned the switch off then on again, and the cover worked perfectly. The leather is thin and stiff, with a soft, thin microfiber lining that will keep the iPad pristine. Unfortunately, it will provide almost no impact protection, especially if dropped on a hard surface. But it eliminates the slippery feel of a bare iPad and provides a much more secure grip. This was a mail-order purchase, sight unseen. Had I looked at one I might have tried something else. While it was beautiful and well made, with all the cutouts perfectly aligned and a perfect fit, it was so thin and light, it felt very overpriced. I got it at a slight discount (discontinued closeout) which paid the sales tax, so that helped. It won't fit the M4 so I can't 'amortize' the cost. I won't be getting a Smart Case for my Air 2. Now that it's all said and done, I *am* pleased with this Smart Case. It remains to be seen how durable it'll be over time and use.
