The magnets affect all magnetic compasses but the compass in the iPad is digital so it will not be affected.

yes and no.
since the compass is calibrated at launch, it can take the magnets into consideration.
there are actually magnets in the casing for the iPad (not just the cases), so your compass is already compensating for those magnets.
