    Bad corners!!!!!!!

    I don't write reviews but this is messed up, how you pay a lot of money for a product that can't even last a year.

    Intentionally Short Lifespan

    I hate to leave a bad review, but its very necessary in this instance.

    I purchased this case when the pro first came out last year. At the time, it was the best option out of a very small selection.

    For the first 3 months, I had no complaints other than the extremely high price for a cheap case.

    After 3 months, the iPad started "lifting" out of the case where it makes contact with the Apple Smart Keyboard. Not only that, but at each of the points where apple included a space or hole for the headphone jack, speakers or lightning connector, the silicone started peeling away and the plastic edge snapped.

    So, for $80, I received 3 months of average protection for the back of my iPad before it started unraveling.

    I'm a teacher, so this case hasn't been put through anything other that what apple would consider "typical use". If a product cant last more than a year, Apple shouldn't be selling it and this appears to be yet another example of Apple using their reputation to sell cheap, poor quality products. It's very upsetting to see a company that used to produce a small handful of really good quality products, fall to victim to the same over-expansive policies as the other tech giants.

    Needless to say, after the iPhone 6 leather case having the exact same quality issues, this will be the last supplemental Apple product I ever buy.

    Terrible case. Corners break down and crack

    For what they charge for this case, it is a shame that they could not have engineered it better. First of all, the top and back should not be sold separately as it simply puts the cost of this silicone cover over the top for what you get. The feel of the silicone is not especially pleasing to.me, however I have seen some that seem to think it's okay. The fit of this case to the iPad is really good as it should be having been made by Apple. The worst thing about this is that the corners of the back portion of the case are all cracking open. This iPad gets light use as I have two iPads, has never been dropped and I never remove the back cover. The corners are just falling apart. This is NOT something I expect to get from Apple, this is relative to some generic garbage I may buy on an auction site for about 19.95. Apple should step up to the plate and replace these desintigrating covers for all the folks that it is happening to for what they are charging. My other smaller iPad has the Apple leather cover as does my iPhone and I love those. Apple can't get it together to design something better for their flagship iPad than this tombstone gray silicone cover that falls apart? Really?

    Build Quality - Durabilty

    The covers corner have the tendency to crack, not from dropping just from the occasional removal of the cover.

    Great feel terrible quality and engineerig

    I bought this case because the silicone will tend to look newer longer but all of the corners have cracked within months of owning. Very disappointed in design especially due to the high cost of a relatively cheap product.

    Covers only the back!

    Don't bother with this product. It only covers the back. II thought it covered the front and back. For $50 you can get the front cover that has a lot more functionality. Useless for the price.

    Stable protection but adds a bit of weight

    I wish Apple had decided to make Smart Case for the iPad Pro, I was using leather Smart Cases in the past and they are super light weight. This case provides a steady protection all round the iPad and will protect it against minor falls and bumps. The cover part needs to be purchased seperate you, this case on its own leaves the screen open so that is something to consider. The color is nice, the material is good and does not slip. I have sweaty palms and for a person like me this silicone case is perfect.

    Not that robust.

    The sides tend to disintegrate. had to change it after 6 months of just 2 to 3 times use a week.

    breaking, poor quality

    I've had this case along with the corresponding magnetic top cover for 2 months. It is cracked where the charge port connects and on a corner. I need something more durable. For the price I would expect this to be holding up better.

    Weak corner

    The corner of this case - by the camera window - cracked open when I was first putting the iPad into it. And I'm not a butterfingers.

    You can see there's a design flaw here - there are three holes almost in a straight line at the corner, one for the main camera window, two for the microphones. The fracture has happened along that axis, out of the camera window hole and out to the side of the case, so the corner of the case is now loose.

    It appears that the case has been scaled up in length and width compared with the smaller models but the designers haven't properly taken into account the extra bending moment at these corner stress points, with the big 12.9 inch version. A pity, the visual design is excellent, but let down by neglect of the mechanicals. I'm not impressed for £65!

    Corners of case failed

    I have had this case since December 2015 and I'm sad to say the corners of the case have become loose and have started to fall apart from the rest of the case. I have in no way treated this case badly as there are no scratches or marks on the back and sides. I'd expect for the £65 price tag the case would have a better build quality. Bought a £10 case off of amazon to replace it. Prefer the Amazon case by far and away.

    Excellent

    I have been using cover since I bought iPad Pro two weeks ago. It looks and feels great. Was worried about the size but within no time at all I couldn't imagine not having it. Will be buying Smart Cover now to protect front.

    Great Product!

    I love this case and have had similar cases on my other iPads. It offers protection mostly meant for scratches and not drops so if you are drop prone I would not recommend this for you. It has been great for me although I wish it had more color options (I love the orange red color on other apple cases) This is a great case and I recommend it. Thanks Apple!

    Kinda let down

    As far as accessories go for my iPad pro I was extremely let down for multiple reasons firstly the price this is crazy I understand it's for a bigger unit but even then it doesn't warrant the price, secondly I'm sceptical about the Button covers they feel nice the begin with but I'm concerned about the wear and tear of them. Thirdly is the side section now yes I understand that it was left uncover for the smart covers and cases but what happens if you don't have or use one all the time a side insert should come with it but the lining within the case was a nice touch and still gets the job done.

    Good Case

    This is a good case, but Apple's color choices are very bland. Would like to see more colors (like the other iPad cases).

    I Pad Pro rear cover

    Looks & feels very good, obviously fits perfectly, bit too expensive although I bought a cheaper variant initially & sent it back as it was the complete opposite to this one, hard plastic & felt horrible, didn't seem the right thing for my iPad. 4 stars rather than 5 only because of the price !

    Excellent

    A great case that fits perfectly. Yes, more colors would be nice but I am not seeking to provide a review based on such aspects. Functionally, it is everything you want to protect your expensive iPad.

    nice case, does what I need it to

    the iPad Pro is not cheap. I bought the 128GB LTE version, I needed something to protect it when its placed on a table, counter etc. I use my iPad for in home sales presentations and contract writing. This case does the job, its slim, feels good in the hand. I dont know how it will perform if the iPad is dropped, I treat the iPad like a laptop, I am careful with it. I have this combined with the smart keyboard and I think the combination is great. this case should come with the keyboard but hey.. you gotta pay to play.

    Great Product - Terrible Color Options

    The Silicone Case for the iPad Pro is a fantastic back cover that pairs perfectly with the Smart Cover and Smart Keyboard. The material is flexible enough to be put on and taken off easily, but it is rigid enough to provide peace of mind and never come off accidentally. My biggest problem with this product is the color selection. The covers and cases for both the iPad Air and iPad Mini come in a very wide array of colors, yet these products for the Apple's flagship iPad only come in two extremely boring colors. I would like nothing more than to put my beautiful, prized iPad Pro in a colorful — preferably navy or light blue — and fun set of cases and covers, but Apple is barring me and other iPad Pro users by only offering colors it feels are 'professional.' I would gladly give this fantastic case a 5-star review were Apple to increase the color selection to one that is at least comparable to that if its accessories for its other iPads. There is no good reasont for the iPad Pro to have only two color options in cases when the iPhones, iPad Air, and iPad Mini have a wide choice of color options.

    Great Case for iPad Pro

    This has been a great case for my iPad Pro. It's a bit expensive I do agree with but it's been keeping my iPad Pro in fine condition. Yes this works beautifully with the new Smart Keyboard if anyone asks. It's also fine Apple quality. 5 stars
