    Thin, minimal design.

    The lightweight, durable Smart Cover protects your iPad Air screen without covering up its aluminum back. So your iPad still looks and feels like an iPad — just with a little extra protection.

      Poor at best

      I am a huge Apple fan and this is my 3rd ipad. I have had the full smart case the last 2 times but got this Smart Cover because I refused to pay $79, for a case I am a huge Apple fan and this is my 3rd ipad. I have had the full smart case the last 2 times but got this Smart Cover because I refused to pay $79, for a case. It was bad enough this one was $39. While I love my new iPad air this cover is almost useless. It does turn the unit off but it pops off when folded back and without the full case the metal bottom of the iPad is so slippery it won't stay in place on your lap. Stop being greedy Apple, this case is worth nothing really, just sell the full smart case for a fair price, $79 is not fair.

      Not what I expected

      Bought this for my wife. She was used to the full cover on her old iPad. She likes to use her iPad while laying in bed. This one with the magnets does not stay Bought this for my wife. She was used to the full cover on her old iPad. She likes to use her iPad while laying in bed. This one with the magnets does not stay on if you move around at all. Wanted to be able to see the pretty gold on the back but going to have to upgrade. If you just use it sitting on a table then it's ok. If you use it on your lap, in bed, etc you won't be happy.

      Black Smart Cover Isn't Black

      I've been a lover and user of the Smart Cover ever since it was introduced back in 2011 alongside the iPad 2. I recently used a black Smart Cover with my iPad A I've been a lover and user of the Smart Cover ever since it was introduced back in 2011 alongside the iPad 2. I recently used a black Smart Cover with my iPad Air and didn't have any complaints with it, works exactly as it should. Having just purchased an iPad Air 2 in Space Grey I naturally went for a black Smart Cover again which has just arrived this morning. My very first observation is that the black Smart Cover isn't black! It's more of a very, very dark grey colour which complements the Space Grey iPad well. I like it and I'll use it but I was expecting a black Smart Cover and when I put this new model alongside my old iPad Air Smart Cover you can clearly see the difference colour wise. So whilst I love the Smart Cover I was a bit miffed that it wasn't pure black as advertised and the same as the previous model. Just a warning to anyone looking to get the black model.

      A great accessory for the iPad

      This cover does the job. It protects the iPad screen when it is not in use. It turns off the display when the cover is closed. The cover is more of a dark gr This cover does the job. It protects the iPad screen when it is not in use. It turns off the display when the cover is closed. The cover is more of a dark gray than a black ... and it is not leather, but I knew that when I bought it. I would recommend it to anyone getting an iPad.

      Worthless

      I'm actually mad that Apple sells this case because -- unlike the other (also overpriced) so-called smart cases -- it has no protection for the back whatsoever. I'm actually mad that Apple sells this case because -- unlike the other (also overpriced) so-called smart cases -- it has no protection for the back whatsoever. Yes, it's my fault for not looking carefully at the description but it never even occurred to me that Apple would sell what is essentially only half a case for $39 dollars. Seriously, the box it came in would offer more protection.

      Amazing!

      I own an iPad Air 2 and I purchased this cover today at one of my local Apple Stores and I couldn't be happier! The customer service there was amazing and was v I own an iPad Air 2 and I purchased this cover today at one of my local Apple Stores and I couldn't be happier! The customer service there was amazing and was very generous by letting me try it on my iPad before I purchased it. The cover fits to my iPad perfectly and it wakes up the iPad when I open the cover. I had a different one that I order from amazon and it wouldn't hold my iPad up. Also, the last indent on the cover would hover over the iPad and not stay flat. Overall, I am very happy with this Smart Cover and I would recommend it, but maybe purchase it in stores so you can make sure it fits your iPad.
