    Fell apart

    • Written by from carlsbad

    The glue that keeps it together gave out. For 50$ didn't expect it to fall apart so quickly. Designed in USA but definitely Made In China.

    i bought this case with my iPad 5 months back. I wish I had not. The ridges are all out of place then I came to find a sizable hole in the seam. I really liked this case at first but it almost cost me a cracked screen. I would not recommend this product to anyone.

    Doesn't hold up

    • Written by from La Crosse

    My case didn't last a year before the side seams started to come apart. The two spots that you place your hands to hold the iPad is where it separated.

    Needs improvement

    • Written by from New Orleans

    It was pretty nice upgrade from the Smart Cover and it works well for protecting the iPad. It also feels nice and smooth and just feels good in your hands. The problems with the case...I have several. The case is coming apart from the seams, although I have had it for about 2years and it is a year past warranty. It doesn't fit into the stand charger I bought from apple, and so the cover has to be removed for charging on this device. In my opinion, Apple products should fit and work together. The biggest problem with the case is the following: when using the case as a stand, the iPad easily tips over. It cannot be used this way as intended, and that was happening from day one, so not a wear and tear issue. My iPad tips over at the slightest touch and this is one of the reasons I bought this smart case.

    Good Value - Works as Advertised

    • Written by from Indio

    If you don't have a cover that protects the screen, thin sides and back of your iPad, this is for you. I had a smart cover only, dropped the iPad and broke the screen.

    This is much better, as it cushions any fall, no matter what part of the iPad hits the hard object. As to fit, it is perfectly snug on my Third Generation - "The New iPad". When you install it, just make sure all four sides of your screen are slightly covered at the edges. That will secure it. You may have to bend the sides of the cover down a bit while you are inserting your iPad, but you will see that it "snaps" into place. There is no looseness as it is a tight fit.

    There are no negatives - it is a good product.

    Fantastic protection, but doesn't last forever

    • Written by from Americus

    We have kept this cover on our ipad for nearly 2 years. It is finally worn out - the rubber sides have split and it no longer stays on the ipad. It has been falling apart for about 3 months now. That's not bad for the only type of case or cover we've ever bothered with. It's held up to being shoved into brief cases, back packs, purses, and knitting bags. We are contemplating the purchase of another one because we like it so much. I only took one star off - because it only survived for 1.5 years.

    One word: terrible

    • Written by from Arlington

    The case do not fits properly, do not stand easily (fall all the time). The borders hurt your hand when you hold for long.
    Do not spend your money with this product (that doesn't deserve the apple logo)

    Loved this Case, but....

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    I bought the case almost exactly a year ago. It fit perfectly, and was very convenient for carrying the iPad to work and using it in meetings. Unfortunately, after one year of normal use, the case has fallen apart. The frame has torn away from the body of the case and consequently, the iPad slips out. This is not an inexpensive case, so I had hoped to use it for more than a year. I haven't decided whether to buy another one or try something else. If you decide to purchase this case, just be careful with it.

    could be better

    • Written by from westfield

    the case fits the ipad pretty good.. it could be a little tighter though. the problem I have with the case is that it started coming apart at the seams within 3 months. as another person put it on here, I'm having a hard time believing apple would put their name and logo on this case. it's clearly substandard quality.. the one thing I will say is that I love the way the case looks and feels, but could be way better especially considering what I paid for it.

    Not made for the long haul

    • Written by from Melbourne

    Right out of the box this is a flimsy case and it just gets worse as time goes on. Mine is just a little over a year old and the seams have come completely apart. My iPad doesn't even see regular daily usage.

    iPad Smart Case falling apart

    • Written by from Sioux Falls

    I've had the smart case for about 2 years. About 6 months ago the seam started splitting apart. Now it is apart on two and a half sides. BAD product quality. I know it wouldn't last for ever but using glue? Why not stitched? $50 is a lot to pay for something that only lasts 18 months on a $1000 iPad purchase! Shame Apple!

    Design Flaw: Very uncomfortable to hold - edges too SHARP!

    • Written by from Aliso Viejo

    If you're like me and you like to kick back on the bed or couch and surf the web or read emails, this product will hurt your hands. The edges are too sharp. Apple, you need to round the edges of this. I spend $55 on this and I want my money back! Let me buy it again once you repair this design flaw!

    Uncomfortable and didn't last

    • Written by from Chicago

    Initially the case is slick, has a good fit and protects the iPad . After just a year of moderate use the case split open, will not hold the iPad and does not prop up the device. It was very uncomfortable to hold from the start with razor sharp edges all the way around the perimeter. I don't want to research the hundreds of cases to find one that is function able and comfortable. I trusted Apple to do that. A little disappointing.

    Terrible, don't buy!

    • Written by from Aguada

    This product won't last. The concept is great, but unfortunately the products braks after use putting your iPad at risk. The sides of the case are glued to the frame the goes around the iPad and connects to the top cover. After use, the sides separate and the iPad can slip between this space. We bought three (3) of these Apple Smart Cases at my home, and all three of them have the issue. Do not recommend.

    This case saved my iPad

    • Written by from Oakley

    This case is amazing. I left my iPad on the top of my car and drove off. When I realized it was gone I went back to find it and found it on the side of the road. It had fallen off when I was going 50 mph. The case is ripped on all corners and scratches on the front and back of the cover. I can tell it took a few hard hits as it hit the ground. The amazing thing is that my iPad still works perfectly. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it. I now need a new case and I will get nothing else but the smart case for my iPad. I never leave reviews but could not keep quiet on this one. Thanks Apple for making such a great product!

    Expensive and NOT durable

    • Written by from Topanga

    For the price of this thing I expected it to not fall apart at the seams within 18 months of at home use. My iPad actually fell out of the case through the split in the seem and smashed the corner of the screen. I am very disappointed in this overpriced product .

    better than the ipad air's smart case

    • Written by from Mt. Pleasant

    The reason why I think that is because it overlaps so it aint as easy to tumble And it's Polyurethane instead of leather

    iPad case

    • Written by from Topton

    My case was purchased as a present, engraved also. Very nice to look at, it has worked fairly well for a short period of time. Did not receive quality for amount they spent. the glue along the edges began to come loose, the iPad would shift, then you had to adjust in order to use volume button, camera, etc. I thought something from Apple, and something that cost more, would last longer. I am now searching for a new cover for my iPad.

    Not sturdy enough

    • Written by from Ottawa

    I have used this smart case for over two years now. It worked well in the beginning but over time the material softened up and the iPad kept falling out. Recently the iPad fell out onto concrete and broke. I bought a mini now use a Logitech folio which works great and is a much better product than Apple smart case. Overall, there are better products out there. Don't let the Apple logo fool you.
