      Like previous versions, but should be complimented by a proper back/case.

Like those, the material is decent and the magnetic attachment mechanism novel, but the overall design is still not suited to all situations. I'm also somewhat disappointed that Apple doesn't have any case, leather or otherwise, to compliment the 10.5-inch iPad Pro at launch. Perhaps Apple will finally engineer an iPad equivalent to the sturdy leather case they make for the iPhone. Until then, as much as I dig the Smart Cover's simple design and aesthetic, I'm not sure I can recommend this for anyone who wants full, front AND back, protection that befits their significant investment in the 10.5-inch iPad Pro. Also, perhaps the saddle/tan (on my Smart Case for the iPad mini 2) is better than the blue, but that's subjective... And, will these ever be offered in GREEN?

      Where is the smart case?

It is nicely designed as these covers always are, but without an accompanying back case, what is the point? So I am now forced to use a horrendously ugly $15 3rd party case with my beautiful new iPad Pro. What I really want is the lightweight leather smart case that shipped with the original iPad Air. That was perfect and is still going strong for us all these years later. Apple's leather sleeve is nice for designers, but for people who want to use this iPad in the regular way iPads have been used since their inception, it is useless. My iPad spends at least half of its time stood up with the tri-fold case. A sleeve means I'd have to rest it on salt shakers or a stack of magazines or something. Not the most elegant or safe solution for sure.

      Just a cover, not a case

      I thought this was a Smart Case like the one I have for my iPad Air 2, but it is only a screen cover. Ridiculous for $69, only $10 less than the Smart Case. I g I thought this was a Smart Case like the one I have for my iPad Air 2, but it is only a screen cover. Ridiculous for $69, only $10 less than the Smart Case. I get the feeling Apple is trying to push 10.5 iPad Pro buyers into the much more expensive sleeve, which doesn't offer the functionality, convenience or protection (when the iPad is in use) of the older Smart Case design. I will be returning this tomorrow and look to the aftermarket for a suitable case that protects both the front and back of my new iPad, and hopefully has a sleeve for the Pencil as well. Apple dropped the ball on this one.

      Finally, the form and function of the original one-piece Smart Covers!

      Well constructed with high quality materials, this Leather Smart Cover is a perfect fit for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro. It fits similarly to the one-piece covers fo Well constructed with high quality materials, this Leather Smart Cover is a perfect fit for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro. It fits similarly to the one-piece covers for the iPad Air and iPad mini (pre mini 4) series. I prefer to have just the Smart Cover on my iPad, keeping the whole configuration as thin as possible. In the past (iPad Air and iPad mini [pre mini 4] series), Apple made separate matching Smart Covers and Smart Cases, each fitting their respective iPad perfectly with a front-only or complete coverage. With the iPad mini 4 and the 12.9 and 9.7-inch iPad Pros, Apple went to modular design with a thicker Smart Cover (with annoying “overhang”) and a Silicone Case. Together, they worked well; but when used alone, the Smart Covers fit loosely and added unnecessary thickness and bulk. In fact, the thickness reduction gained by the iPad mini 4 over the iPad mini 3 was lost with the thicker Smart Cover design! I never understood why the Smart Covers needed to be so thick, so I am thrilled that Apple returned to the previous thinner design. If you want a complete case enclosure for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, this product is not for you. But if you want a Smart Cover designed to cover the front of the iPad only, the Leather Smart Cover is perfect!

      Why is case for back missing?

      Where is the matching case to protect the back of 10.5 iPad? I bought matching cover and case in midnight blue for my 9.7 inch iPad from online Apple Store Where is the matching case to protect the back of 10.5 iPad? I bought matching cover and case in midnight blue for my 9.7 inch iPad from online Apple Store and really like it. After buying cover for new 10.5 iPad in saddle brown, I returned it when I realized the case was not available. Went to Amazon and found nice case but would rather have cover and case that Apple used to provide. Would buy from Apple if this is offered in future. I hope it is. Quality of Apple product is better and well worth the price, at least, in my opinion.
