      Great case; really adds to the iPad Air

      I decided to get this case after asking an Apple employee if I could see one 'in action' so to speak. They brought one out from the back that had an iPad Air i I decided to get this case after asking an Apple employee if I could see one 'in action' so to speak. They brought one out from the back that had an iPad Air in it. I immediately decided to get it. I have prior experience with the Smart Case for a previous iPad (3) and didn't like it because the lip at the top seemed wide, clunky, and bulky. It could be that the new smaller form factor of the iPad Air allows it's Smart Case to be more pleasing. The top lip is narrow (like the bezel) and you hardly notice it. For my previous iPad I had both the Smart Case and a Smart Cover which I used in combination with a Belkin Snap Shield Secure. The Belkin case is a low profile shell (for the back) that was designed to accept the Smart Cover. I bring this up because it was my intention to use both setups and alternate them but since I disliked the older Smart Case so much I ended up never using it. For this new Smart Case, this is the only case I intend to get as I really like it. It's pricey as leather is the only choice, but if I had gotten the less expensive Smart Cover, I would have gotten an additional shell for the back so there would be extra cost there. I don't mind paying a little extra for a good solution like this.

      Fits and feels wonderful. Stand takes some getting used to.

      The case fits like a glove and feels wonderful to touch. As a stand, the case is quite stable once the hidden magnets are engaged.

Follow the pictures on how to fold the lid. The space grey iPad Air in the black case looks great.

      Almost a perfect case but think before you buy.

      Had read lots of review about this iPad Air Case before purchasing it online. I got my iPad Air in white and was looking for a perfect case, but as you know, no Had read lots of review about this iPad Air Case before purchasing it online. I got my iPad Air in white and was looking for a perfect case, but as you know, nothing is perfect. Many reviews claims that this is one of the worst case which will not work will and collect lots of dust and make your colour to black after a few days of usage. What they said was 100% true. So i decided to get a black one for me. Trust me, its the most perfect case i had ever use. Not other colour, but black colour. Advantages: -Case will not turn black after usage because its already black! -One of the most comfortable case to carry around. -Perfect leather design. -Super Lightweight. -Protects your iPad from top to bottom, front to back. -Stand works normally but its sufficient for people like us, humans. Disadvantages: Price.

      Terrible design

      How can you sell a case specifically designed and labeled for an iPad Air that has a hole cutout for the camera that does not align with an iPad Air?!?! Very u How can you sell a case specifically designed and labeled for an iPad Air that has a hole cutout for the camera that does not align with an iPad Air?!?! Very upset. Returning this case ASAP. Not even close to the standard I expected for an apple branded case that cost $80! I would love a response.

      New case a disappointment. My old one works great. Mad Apple sold it.

      Purchased a smart case for my iPad shortly after receiving the iPad as a gift a couple years ago. It was a great case. Fit was good on the old case. However th Purchased a smart case for my iPad shortly after receiving the iPad as a gift a couple years ago. It was a great case. Fit was good on the old case. However the color was light and showed all the dirt. Today, replaced my smart case for a new one, but in black. Put my iPad in and could only see half of the picture I was taking. The hole for the camera does not line up. When I went on line to check out the cases I was mad to find out Apple already had complaints about this case and yet they continue to sell it. It's not cheap and should not be sold. It is an inferior product. Thought maybe it was just a bad batch. But obvious it's not as the inferior cases are still being sold. Take your iPad with you when you buy a case. Apple seems to hav always prided themselves in their products. Perhaps they had this new Smart Case Made by someone else. Dug my old one out of the trash to put on my iPad back in. It's dirty but still works.
