  • Overview

    Thin, minimal design.

    The lightweight, durable Smart Cover protects your iPad screen without covering up its aluminium back. So your iPad still looks and feels like an iPad — just with a little extra protection.

    Polyurethane design.

    The Smart Cover is made of polyurethane. It also features a soft, colour-matched microfibre lining that helps keep your display clean.

    Magnetic connection.

    A hinge magnetically aligns the Smart Cover with iPad for a perfect fit, while magnets inside help it stay put.

    Keyboard stand.

    The Smart Cover does double duty as a keyboard stand. Fold it back to tilt iPad into a comfortable writing position.

    Wake on open. Sleep on close.

    Open the Smart Cover and iPad magically wakes up. Close it and iPad automatically goes to sleep.

    FaceTime and film stand.

    The Smart Cover folds in just the right places to become the perfect FaceTime and film-watching stand.

      I liked the old version better

      I recently got a 3rd generation iPad Air, and because my Smart Cover for the old one didn’t fit, I ordered this one. I assumed it would be similar the the origi I recently got a 3rd generation iPad Air, and because my Smart Cover for the old one didn’t fit, I ordered this one. I assumed it would be similar the the original one, which was shaped like a thin book, and wrapped around the entire device, snapping securely in place. The design was changed significantly so that the new cover attaches to the bottom edge with a magnet. Unfortunately, this is not terribly secure, and although I know it’s not recommended, when I accidentally lost my grip on the device, I grabbed the cover, and it came off. Fortunately the iPad only dropped a few inches onto a soft surface, but with the original cover, I never dropped my iPad because of how securely the cover fit. In addition, the cover can be folded into a triangle to prop it up somewhat, but the new version doesn’t do this as well as the original. If I could go back to the original cover I would, but alas, it is a centimeter or so too small now. I was very disappointed in this new version of the Smart Cover! Bring back the old style!
