  • Overview

    image.alt.pdp-overview-ipadairsmartcover-minimal

    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.

    The Smart Cover is made of polyurethane. It also features a soft, color-matched microfiber lining that helps keep your display clean.

      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.

      It's a medium-dark grey not black

      If the color was actually black, this would be five stars.

It fits my brand new iPad Air 2 perfectly and works better at holding the iPad while I use it than the leather cover (that was actually black) that I had on my iPad 2. Overall, I love it. I just wish it matched my moleskin notebook and iPhone case.

      Magnet too weak

      I agree with previous reviewers that the smart cover is useless at least as it is sold currently! I bougt one for my iPad mini two years ago and loved it! It ha I agree with previous reviewers that the smart cover is useless at least as it is sold currently! I bougt one for my iPad mini two years ago and loved it! It has been coming apart now so I bought a new one. For some reason the magnet is too weak to stick to the iPad when it's standing which is the main reason I want the smart cover. In addition, the cover does turn off the iPad randomly when it is folded back. I turned this off in the settings which makes this an utterly UNsmart and expensive cover. I exchanged the cover twice, but the problem remains and looking at the other reviews appears to be a widespread problem. Very disappointing.

      Stylish, light but flimsy...

I purchased one for my IPad Mini because I did not like the the added weight of the Logitech keyboard combo - It looks great and is nice and light, but is utterly useless as a stand, which is my primary need. I recommend spending the additional money if you require something sturdy and versatile, if however you just need a cover, this product looks slick and adds little to no bulk.
