    Corners cracking

    • Written by Julian S from MILPITAS

    The corners of my case started to crack without any impact.
    Reason I chose an original Apple case was for its quality and for the amount I spent, I could have gotten several cheap after market cases.
    Very disappointed.

    Silicones iPad case- utterly disappointed for the first time with Apple

    • Written by MELANIE H from PAKENHAM UPPER

    My silicone iPad case that I have cared for very well has just split in the corner and is continuing to break off! When I went to Apple fountain gate, the girl that serves me said there was nothing they could do and to get 2 years out of a case is pretty good. I think it’s pretty appalling when it costs me $180, a lot more money than other cases/covers on the market! I buy Apple products because I believe in them and up until now have had brilliant service, but was disgusted yesterday! You buy a cover to protect your iPad, not to fall apart after 2 years when it has been well cared for! I have always been the biggest advocate for Apple and owned all their products but am starting to think I should look elsewhere after the bad service I received yesterday!

    Not worth it!!!!!

    • Written by JP M from Queanbeyan

    Reasons not to buy:
    Doesn’t even fit the iPad Air series or even the new 9.7inch iPad
    No Smart Cover attached
    You really want leather for that price

    It’s disappointing that there is no Apple branded silicone case for the new iPad 9.7

    Awful, awful, awful. Expensive, expensive, expensive!

    • Written by Andrew Kyle C from NEWTON ABBOT

    My blood boils over these silicon cases. I am like many Apple fans, a little precious over looking after my toys but these cases are not acceptable. I still struggle to understand how silicon can cost more than leather but as we didn't get any choice there I had to buy the overpriced silicon case. My first one split at the lightning port. This was replaced under the one year warranty but now that one has split around the headphone jack. Now the original warranty has expired I'm not sure they'll replace the case again but I'm sure going to try and get it replaced.

    Nice case until it failed

    • Written by David J from Melbourne

    I loved the case at first but it eventually failed on me after 6 months. It split right in front of the lightning port so it doesn't fit tightly any more. It was never abused or dropped. For the price I shouldn't have had this issue.

    My mother and I both have this case and it's very poorly made. All corners have chipped away within 6 months.

    I have been using apple case for my iPad 3 and 4, with no problem but not this one. The corner has cracked and can not provide protection any more. Unfortunately I can not recommend this case to anyone has iPad pro.

    Garbage Case

    • Written by Cliff K from Miami

    I've owned Apple products for well over 10 years, and have used Apple brand covers for my Iphones, macs, Ipads and IPad Pro. All the covers served me well, protected my devices and remained in one piece throughout the life of the device. All except this one, the case for the IPad Pro.
    It turned out to be defective and a piece of garbage in the end. The corners began to chip, and then crack and now both the right side corners have fallen apart. I noticed that other reviews described the same problem and Apple of course, will not admit there was an inherent defect in the design and build of this case. Terrible customer service Apple!! And terrible case.

    Sure, this case is nice enough, with a premium feel (although the price is still utterly ridiculous and Apple should be ashamed.
    The main gripe I have with this case is that if you want full protection, you have to team it with a Smart Cover. Yes, they say it works perfectly with a Smart Cover in the description, but they do NOT say that if you want full protection you have to buy both.
    Accordingly, and totally innocently, I now have a lovely new iPadPro that is covered...but not on the side with the smart connector, which is exposed, and the whole device is out of balance.
    People might think "oh poor little love, complaining about his cover" but that would be missing the point. When you're spending this much on a piece of plastic, it's not unreasonable to assume that it would just DO ITS JOB, with no exceptions or stupid "design features", that necessitate purchasing ANOTHER expensive product.
    I don't want a Smart Cover. I wanted to use the silicone case, and then a screen protector - as should be my prerogative.
    For God's sake Apple - TELL PEOPLE about your products and what they are ACTUALLY like.

    ipad case and pricing policy

    • Written by Ivaylo D from Trois-Rivieres

    The case fits perfectly the iPad pro and that is all about the good about it. The price on the other hand is crazy and outrageous. Before the case for iPad air or the iPad before was something around 70 dollars for a complete product. For this Ipad for I don't know what reason ( the fact that appel is selling a keyboard or because not everyone need both top and bottom cover is not an excuse for me) apple is selling separately those.
    On one side paying for an iPad and accepting to pay a premium price is good enough, on the other side charging for a accessory like a cover 89 canadian dollars, yes 89 dollars is ridiculous.
    I'm so sorry for that one but please apple this is wrong decision by all means is a wrong marketing decision.
    If you put 30 dollars on the iPad and ask then 50 dollars for a cover nobody will complain, but asking 89 dollars for a bottom plastic cover please look at this and for the future please fix this. Charging that kind of amount is not the way you should threat the loyal customers of the brand especially as I said for a basic accessory.
    2 stars from me not because the product is bad but because of the price. It is not a rocket science but JUST a case

    Not worth the price

    • Written by Mark R from Los Angeles

    I've had the cover about 2 months now and just like others have said the corner is splitting. Never dropped or handled carelessly but cracking at the corner by the headphone jack. Feels and fits great but the quality is garbage.

    Does not provide protection, tears easily, way over priced

    • Written by Glenn K from Trevor

    Title pretty much says it all. The silicon cover is thin and does not provide any protection at all especially from accidents with drops less than 3 feet. Cover tears easily on the corners and once that happens, it always falls off.

    This is an extremely expensive item despite the cost of manufacturing being extremely cheap for silicon cases.

    Having owned one, I would gladly never purchase one again. There are better products out there at half the price.

    Feels nice until a corner chips

    • Written by Thomas T from Lebanon

    I did like this case until the one corner chipped off (wasnt dropped or abused). Now everytime I feel the case it bothers me, apple also does not cover these cases unless it ships in the box with the ipad. So no replacement either the price is a little much to gamble if it is going to stay in perfect condition.

    This case is a must-buy if you really want full protection

    • Written by James M from Atwater

    At first, I had the the Apple Keyboard with a different, cheaper back protector and I'm happy I got the genuine Apple silicone Back Case because when I accidentally dropped my iPad Pro 12.9" onto the floor, it protected it fully. It is carefully engineered to work with all ports without suppressing the loudness of the speakers. Apple hit a homerun with this as it keeps the iPad Pro lightweight, classy and very well protected.

    $69.99 for just one back cover! Very disappointed with this purchase.

    • Written by Power H from Temple City

    I was expecting both a back cover and a front Smart Cover with a price tag of $69.99. What I received was just a back cover, which I could have bought one clear back cover from Amazon that would show off my rose gold color iPad Pro for only $6.99. I should have gone to the Apple Store to check out what I was actually getting before buying it on the Internet. I am very disappointed for what I actually got for $69.99. Apple was not clear on the description of this case to be just the back cover and does not include the Smart Cover and neither did any of reviews posted on what I was going to get only the back cover. This review will clarify that only back cover will be received for all future readers of this review.

    Great...until the corner started cracking like others have stated...

    • Written by Michael M from San Antonio

    I for one was a big fan of the two piece case- it allowed me to switch off the keyboard for business use and the smart over for home/reading use.
    However the back case is now cracking in the same corner that it seems is happening with most people. The corner nearest the headphone jack. I have no idea why this is happening and I baby all of my devices and accessories.
    For the price this is absolutely unacceptable.
    I will be reviewing my manufacturer warranty and looking to get this replaced before it completely comes apart.

    Pleased with Purchase

    • Written by Paul S from Rescue

    Reviewers may be right about the expense of the Case and Smart Cover, and you need both for proper protection, but I’m quite pleased with my purchase. Having rationalized big bucks for the iPad Pro, buying Apple accessories was easy to justify. They look classy, feel good (even better than the leather, IMHO), fit perfectly, and provide excellent protection. If you need a little extra travel protection, you can buy a functional 11.6” laptop sleeve for $9.99 on Amazon. I just leave it in my backpack and insert iPad, case, and cover, as needed, with room left over. Haven’t damaged one yet.

    As for the fit, mentioned by others -- I found that the cover does extend a fraction beyond the edge, but only if for some reason you fold it backwards over the case. To hold vertically in one hand, perhaps? Not an issue for me.

    I didn’t buy the Keyboard Cover at this time, mainly because I prefer the look of the Smart Cover and I’m not a high speed typist in any case. Maybe later, but in the meantime my Bluetooth keyboard will suffice, and I don’t mind saving a hundred bucks.

    iPad Pro Case and Cover 9.7

    • Written by Paul D from WORCESTER

    Purchased both the case and cover due to very limited 3rd party options available. The price appears very high for what looks like a couple of bits of flimsy plastic but when you attach to your iPad you appreciate the quality of the products.

    Would have liked to see a configuration tool to allow you to add different colours to both back/front to get an better idea of a colour mix option.

    Rated as 4 star due to high price for both covers which I think is hard to justify.
