    Get your duct tape ready.

    • Written by Burton P from Columbia

    I've had my Smart Cover for about 10 months. I'm careful with it and it has had moderate use. The plastic is separating along the seam near the hinge, exposing the plate which stiffens the cover.

    WARRANTY IS ONLY 30 DAYS. I found this out after 30+ minutes trying to get a replacement. Buyer beware.

    I love the minimal design of this cover and have not found a comparable non-Apple smart cover (no back case.) Too bad.

    Purchased two of these over the last couple of years, one word: "Don't"

    • Written by Cary S from CENTREVILLE

    I have tried these on two iPads that I have owned. I figured that perhaps the issue with my first one was an anomaly, but now after the second one for my iPad Pro, I can honestly say that these are of very poor quality. I had the same issue with both...the covers separate at the seams, and my local Apple Store doesn't want to replace. I'll go elsewhere for a case, and I suggest that you do the same.

    Not the quality expected from Apple

    • Written by Leland F from Kailua Kona

    My cover is about 12 months old and has been falling apart for months. The main part of the cover is connected to the magnetic attachment strip by two bonded layers of thin plastic material. The layers have de-laminated over the their entire 7.5 inch length and will soon separate completely from the magnetic strip. I unwillingly bought a white cover (there was no longer was a wide choice of colors) which has become very soiled and is very difficult to clean. The inner surface (in contact with screen when closed) has a soft nap which has also become very soiled and which is impossible to clean. All in all, this cover is real disappointment and does not live up to Apple's traditional emphasis on build quality. I cannot recommend it.

    Expensive but perfect

    • Written by Jeanne A from Kamuela

    I read many reviews and I bought both the case and the cover (charcoal). I love them!
    I think you have to have both for the perfect fit.
    Very pricey for something that just feels good in your hands. My iPad doesn't leave the house so I don't need durable corners/covers.
    If you're tossing your iPad into your car or bag on a regular basis these covers might wear rather quickly.
    I'll need another type of protective sleeve when I travel.
    Having said all that, I love the products. They're perfect for my needs, exceeding my expectations.

    Size doesn't matter (hehe)

    • Written by Dakota H from Columbia Falls

    Honestly it's fine. The cover sticks out a little on the side, but not enough to where it "digs into your hand" or makes the volume buttons inaccessible. It does its job. It protects your iPad and locks/unlocks it when you open or close it. You're all freaking out over nothing.

    No One Understands Do they?

    • Written by Van E from Kennett Square

    I get that you guys don't like the overhang. The reason there is an overhang is because it is meant to pair w/ the silicone case*

    This Smart Cover does what is supposed to do. It has great materials and colors and on and off with opening and closing it.

    Great material, bad magnets.

    • Written by Pedro M from Weston

    Honestly the size doesn't bother me at all, I think it's ok. At first it worked great but apparently with time this three little magnets start to wear out, not very safe for when you are watching something and have to catch the iPad in free fall or it'll break against the floor, or in bed and have to put it back every time, tedious.

    Stop complaining

    • Written by Kolton B from Avondale

    Honestly, based on these other reviews, you'd think the case sticks out a whole inch. Really, the fit is fine. Yes it juts out on the right edge a millimeter or two at most, but it's hardly noticeable, and it's perfectly flush on the top and bottom edges. I didn't want to pay for the silicone back cover, but I wanted something to protect the screen, and this does just that while looking great at the same time. If you just want a light Apple case for the front of your iPad, don't worry about these other reviews, this case is probably what you're looking for.

    It's too large and doesn't have the "perfekt fit" it should have.

    Too large for the iPad

    • Written by Anthony G from Chicago

    After reading other's reviews, I stopped in an Apple Store today to check these out myself. I explained what I had read on the internet about the size to the guy working there and he allowed me to open one up and try it before I bought it. As many reviews state, it overhangs the iPad by a few millimeters. When the cover is closed, it's not a huge deal (other then looking sloppy). However when you have the cover folded back, the extra width on it is annoying because it digs into your hand and it makes accessing the volume buttons difficult because of the overhang. I ended up not purchasing one. I understand that it works better if you have the silicone back, but I don't want the extra bulk. I hope they come out with an updated version.

    Functional and Stylish

    • Written by Alireza A from Montreal

    The smart cover is a perfect match with the smart case (white). I love the texture and the quality is perfect. I love this cover :)

    An Obvious Attempt For More Money Do Not Purchase!

    • Written by Justin W from Waterloo

    When I first opened this case I was excited. The Smart Cover looks great, and the material is top notch. It seemed to be just a little thicker than previous versions, it would prop my iPad up nicely. However, when I put the cover on, I was shocked to see that it sticks out past the iPad itself. Apparently, this allows it to sit flush with the optional case you can purchase for another $70. Some may think that those of us who are leaving poor reviews are just OCD, but it is much worse than that. When you fold the cover back to hold the iPad I'm portrait mode, the extra length of the case digs into your hand making it very uncomfortable to use. I will be sending mine back. The first return in my 12 year history as a Apple customer.
