    Slight of hand

    • Written by from Montrose

    Are you kidding me? $40 for this piece of junk? Do not buy. So many better choices offering better functionality & protection. Magnetic attachment is flimsy. Fold up stand positions do not hold shape. Total apple product house - love devices - but this cover is awful!

    Doesn't help much

    • Written by from Montreal

    I don't feel my iPad is in "good hands" with this case. Sad thing it cost (I paid) so much.

    iPad 2 Cover is Good for 1-2 Years

    • Written by from Orangeville

    I have had this cover for 1-2 years now and I loved it until recently, when the rubber part of the cover started to fold in on the hinge. It's too bad that they didn't design that part to be hard rubber or light plastic, instead of the soft bendable rubber that it is.

    It's a major disappointment and I would advise you to look for an after-market cover instead. They don't seem to have this problem.

    Not enough protection, too expensive. Comes off too easily.

    • Written by from New Berlin

    Look elsewhere for a cover for your iPad. This does not have enough protection and is too expensive compared to 3rd party cases. It comes off too easily. It was my only choice when I purchased the iPad mini, but wished I had waited. Now I can't return it.

    Extremely disappointed

    • Written by from glenview

    I bought a new iPad on Saturday and accepted the salesperson's suggestion to buy this cover. I take responsibility for not asking more questions, but I wish the salesperson had told me about other options. I was using my iPad the next day to take video. I don't know WHAT happened, but before I knew it, I was holding the cover and the iPad was on the ground. Glass smashed. Fortunately I bought AppleCare, so I'm hoping this will be covered under ADH. We've had iPods, iPhones, iPads and laptops in our home for years. Nothing like this has ever happened. I obviously screwed up, but the cover did not help!

    Terrible product that is not worth the price at all

    • Written by from Watsonville

    Don't waste your money on this cover. It falls off too easily which is very frustrating. I wish I could get a refund so I can purchase a much better made cover.

    Dont pay for the smart cover-defective

    • Written by from anaheim

    Wouldnt give this any stars if site would allow it.This cover is very misleading,it is not a "perfect fit"as it advertises in the description. The magnetic strip is very weak and flimsy. While using my camera function with the cover still on, folded over, the magnet broke free and I tried to grab the iPad and the cover slipped and my iPad hit the ground. Cost me 249.00 to replay the shattered front glass. So far no response from apple in regards to my complaint so use caution with this product.

    Doesn't work as advertised

    • Written by from Ann Arbor

    I had my first iPad for 3 months and had problems with the cover almost from day one. The magnetic hinges were always coming unattached and scratching my ipad. I also didn't like the angles it would prop it up, it never seemed a very good angle for me, plus once I would get it to a good angle it would proceed to fall out of that position quickly. The last straw was when I was folding the cover over, the hinges came off the iPad and I somehow managed to drop my iPad smashing the screen to bits (but the cover was still safe in my hands). I went back to Apple and got a replacement, for a fee, but that same day I also went on-line and found the most sturdy case I could find. It's been over a year now and I've had no problems with my non-Apple case.

    Ruined My iPad, And my wood floor!

    • Written by from Skelmersdale

    This cover as awful, cheaply made and is no different to any other cover other than it folds and stands up your iPad, Sort of!
    I've had my iPad and smart cover for two months and over time I've noticed the magnet in my smart cover get weaker and weaker until this morning when I put it on my desktop in the movie/facetime position (which you can see above in the product description), anyway I put it down gently and made sure the smart cover was secure and the magnet slipped off! Next thing i knew my iPad was on the floor covered in dents and scratches, even my wood floor was dented! So because of this cheap, Diabolical cover my iPad is ruined and my wood floor has a huge dent in it! So if I was you I would pass and buy a cheaper alternative. I'm currently awaiting a response from Apple customer services as to what they are going to do about the damage caused to my iPad due to this failure of a cover. I thought I paid extra money for this thing to protect my iPad not to damage it! I wish I could Rate this thing Zero stars but I can't!

    Very poor quality

    • Written by from Sachse

    I was quite disappointed in the build quality of this case. I returned it the day I got it. The form and fit is not snug, and feels very cheaply made.

    The smart cover portion does not line up flush ontop, and I had constant problems with sleep and wake functionality. There are tons of third party covers that do the job better.

    I highly recommend you look and feel in a store before buying.

    I am still baffled that Apple thought this case was quality they would put their name on...

    Poorly manufactured

    • Written by from Engadine

    I purchased the smart cover for my ipad, less then 4 months ago and since then I have been significantly disappointed. I take my ipad to and from uni every day and through the day to day use, the parts have started to peel away, exposing the plastic panels in the centre. Like anything once it startes to peel of it doesn't stop. I continue to use it, only because it protects the front of my ipad. I paid $45 for it and wouldn't be complaining if i paid what it was worth, which is $10. I took pictures of it for futre reference, but if you are thinking about purchasing it. Think about how it might only last a few weeks until the edges start to peel. I' sorry that i have to make this complaint but felt that it was needed.

    Awful, horrible, useless

    • Written by from Medford

    It's pretty rare that I dislike a product enough to bother writing a review, but this product was a serious waste of money for me. It annoyed me enough that it actually affected my initial experience with my iPad. It definitely took away some of the fun of experiencing the iPad for the first time.

    Snaps off too easily, metal hinges scratch laptop if used in same sleeve

    • Written by from Chandler

    The idea is awesome: light weight and multiple angles. Unfortunately I find that with my Retina iPad the cover simply doesn't stay on well enough. It's constantly snapping off and causes me to fumble the iPad.

    Additionally, I can't put it in my laptop sleeve because the hinges scratch it.

    Great for ipad2 bad for ipad3

    • Written by from Sherbrooke

    Got an iPad 3 and discovered that the magnets of the smart cover are not strong enough for the extra weight of the iPad 3. The cover is perfect for the iPad 2 where i've been using it for a year.

    Looks cool, barely works

    • Written by from Parsippany

    The purpose of a protective cover is to protect, but this barely fits the bill. Apple is famous for it's impeccable design and engineering, but this time they focussed too much on form and not enough on function.

    The cover is held to the iPad with magnets, so when any sort of weight is applied, say that of an iPad, it separates from that which it is supposed to protect. This means that if you accidentally grab it only by the cover, your iPad will go crashing to the ground (and in my case, the screen shattered).

    Also, because it uses strong magnets, don't put it in the same bag as your wallet if you don't want to wipe your credit cards, and don't put it next to any portable hard drives either, unless you are trying to erase them. The old Apple iPad cover they made for the 1st generation was much better, even if it was a bit uglier. At least it worked.

    iPad Smart Cover-Polyurethane-Green

    • Written by from BROCKTON

    My husband bought me a new ipad 3 for my birthday! He also bought me the ipad smart cover in green.
    As a teacher, I have had many workshops to help me learn my ipad. While at the workshop, my ipad cover kept falling off. Our presenter finally just took my ipad to help me get back up with the presentation. After disrupting the presentation, she just said, "This just doesn't work! Take it back! It won't stay on!"
    I haven't asked for a refund yet because I don't know what I should get! I love my ipad, but I don't know what to get to protect it!
    The cover just won't stay on!

    Not impressed

    • Written by from Long Beach

    Product covers screen and acts as a stand as described. However while standing it has detached unexpectedly, toppling the iPad to the floor. Needless to say, I am searching for another product.

    Apple should refund this junk.

    • Written by from Brunswick

    This is the worst device Apple has ever produced. It doesn't stay on the iPad, and it won't even stay up so you can form a stand! (Even the iPad II was ok at that, just the "new" iPad version is defective in this.

    This is absolutely worthless. I was fooled into buying the $79 version (I know, shame on me) and didn't even realize a $39 version existed, but I bought it at the Apple store and I learned to trust them.

    I am just going to throw it away. Even the Apple Store techs are now suggesting you buy a case somewhere else. (We buy them for a business so buy them on a regular basis.)

    Apple should refund all who were fooled into buying this junk. It has significantly lowered my opinion of apple products.
