      I dearly miss the old iPad Smart Cases.

Not overly rubbery, as prev This case is very well put together and feels like it's made of the same high tech silicone material Apple uses for its watch bands. Not overly rubbery, as previous synthetic cases were. That being said, I miss the days of being able to purchase a full front and back genuine leather iPad "Smart Case." They retailed at less than these non-leather replacements. Those leather cases wore beautifully and developed a great patina with use. And they protected all sides of the iPad, which these new folios don't. However, I start thinking about Apple's new (and unfortunate) pricing scheme and wonder what they would have charged for a leather version today?!!! Aesthetically, I'm tired of the dark gray after having it on my old iPad as well. I would have gone with white but I didn't want to have to clean it all the time. Why not offer ProductRed, or simply black? I also am shocked that Apple left their iconic logo off of the back of the folio. I always thought the logo added a touch of class, and I do miss it.

      Expensive and not leather plus sharp edges to boot.

I have 2 iPad Air 2’s a I travelled 40 miles to purchase one of the new iPad Pro 12.9 models. To say i was disappointed with the cover is an understatement. I have 2 iPad Air 2’s and the covers are great. They are covered by leather on all sides. I was expecting the same for the latest cover but sadly no. I cannot comprehend why you should bring a silicone cover out that has uncomfortable sharp edges. Maybe Apple think you will buy it any way and then update to the leather when there is one available. I do not trust Apple anymore, it is a shame.

      Works, but too bulky and heavy

      The new iPad Pro is so light and thin that it’s a shame they didn’t make a screen-side-only cover. This adds 0.49 lbs to a 1.4 lb device.

Unnecessary, but I suspect it was done to address the camera bump. The keyboard folio is even worse. I hope they redesign both down the road.

      Overpriced....low quality

      Don’t waste your money on this trash. It’s twice the price of a better product, but less than 1% as good. Typical Business model here.

Although i like the design, especially having an integrated back cover and the magnetic back is excellent, spending 99 dollars on a cover that falls apart within a couple of months, is not what i had in mind. The seams of the corners let loose after two months and now it is totally falling apart. Would not recommend.

      Why hasn't someone at Apple test driven this in the real world

Just bought my 4th (and probably last Ipad) a 12.9" and looking for a case but reading between the lines there are a lot of disgruntled purchasers here. You wonder if real people test drive these things. Over $2K for a product and I cannot get a case/cover that will protect the thing and that has some style. The Apple keyboard case I looked at purchasing doesn't protect the edges of the product, like this Folio, and allows no place to store the pencil that is secure, at $300AUD, come on!! this is just crazy. I'll pay money for a good product but there are too many negatives here, and this 'smart folio' is another example of how this company is missing Steve Jobs. Sadly, Apple has run its course I think, and I say that as I go back to an Apple IIe. Even its multiport USBc connector I looked at purchasing in tandem with the 12.9" has detractors who have found the product not working in all three ports or not working after a period of time. That is simply a quality issue which should not occur with such an expensive product. I bought the iPad on a whim, and have been disappointed with some of the issues being raised, am hoping it will be half as good as my still working ipad pro, Air and original. End of negative thoughts, hoping for sunshine in two days when delivered. Buyers Remorse, no way!
