    Need back cover protection

    • Written by Donna G from Lethbridge

    While this Smart (front) Cover is terrific, as a whole it simply does not provide the complete protection needed. I have scoured the internet looking for a compatible back cover however there seems to be only one out there which according to reviews does not work. Other third party cases are cheap and bulky. Please, Apple, design and sell a compatible clear back cover that can be purchased to use with any colour of front Smart Cover.

    Front Cover Only - Total Waste of Money

    • Written by Simon K from Marlborough

    Just upgraded to a new iPad mini and bought this cover with it to protect it assuming it was the same as the case I bought with my trusty iPad mini2. Well it's not - and I should have looked more closely. This is a front cover only, which for £45 is a total rip off. If I had looked at the photos more closely I would have realised of course, but I made the mistake of assuming that they wouldn't have changed the design that much. Anyway, it is useless for me as I travel a lot with work and need something that protects the whole device. Spend a few quid on ebay on something instead.

    Nice little cover

    • Written by Tabatha P from Bentleigh

    I bought this in the pale pink version. It sits nicely over the front of my iPad Mini 5 and folds back easily for me to hold it whilst I use my iPad Mini. It protects my iPad Mini’s screen really well. Although it attaches by magnets to my iPad, if you pull at this cover slightly, it will come off the iPad. It also discolours easily too. I’m sure that there are cheaper options available on the market.

    Great cover

    I love the look of this cover and especially the auto turn off feature it has.

    Very nice cover

    • Written by Stephen D from Hillsboro

    It adds very little thickness and is simple and functional. It's easy to catch the edge of the cover to open it and quickly folds flat over the back or into a pretty sturdy triangle as a stand. The magnets feel strong enough, especially for the mini. Very happy with it.

    Not great....

    • Written by Adam A from Pensacola

    Like a previous commentor said, it’s just a cover for the front not the whole device. What happened to the quality of Apple products? I used to love Apple because they made good products that lasted long and were what the customer wanted. Now it seems it’s all about that bottom line. SMH

    Great cover

    • Written by Timothy L from Providence

    This is exactly like the COVER I have with my iPad. The magnets do a terrific job of keeping the COVER in place, and it protects the screen very well. I am very please with this COVER and it is exactly as described by the pictures and the write-up I couldn't be more pleased with this COVER.

    Does what is says. Bit expensive. Not such nice colour range.

    • Written by Wayne B from Currumbin Waters

    Had a few iPads since the first one same out.

    Other reviewers maybe need to know what they are buying before leaving 1 star reviews...

    These are covers for the screen only. Not complete CASES.

    Work as described if you take the time to look at the photos online.

    Some of the older colours were nicer. These things change seasonally though so next year you might get some nicer options. Grey is always a safe bet. Some shades have been lighter, some darker. Current colour maybe a bit dark but would go nice with the Space Grey iPad. White probably teams better with the Silver and Gold ones.

    Not What I Expected

    • Written by Robert C from Livermore

    Indeed this item is just a cover and not a "case". I expected a device to cover and protect the whole iPad, but this device just covers the front. I wasn't very clever when I bought it, because the display looks just like what I had on my old iPad which included a rear cover. For $40 this item is vastly overpriced and underperforming. More careful inspection of the details on the web page would have kept me from ordering.

    Absolute rip-off

    • Written by Sandra B from Glasgow

    Bought a new iPad today so got a new cover for it. I thought I was getting the same one I had before but sadly not. It was attached in store and I just assumed it was a full protection cover like my old one. when I got home I picked the iPad up and the cover fell off. I then realised it was only a screen cover. I cannot get it to fit back on again. I have no packaging so I don’t know how I am supposed to fit it. Have paid £45 pounds for absolutely nothing, really annoyed.
    Also my old cover is too big for the new iPad so it’s now unprotected. Have to give one star as you can’t give it none.
