It provides no protection on 3 sides and doesn't interfere with the new apple pencil when it's attached to its magnetically attached to its charging location.

      Painful to use

Coupled with the fact that this cover is both front and This cover works, but unlike the similar cover for the prior iPads, the edges are quiet hard and sharp. Coupled with the fact that this cover is both front and back, when the cover is open and you support the iPad from the bottom with one hand, two sharp edges, the front and back covers, cut into your hand. I does a fine job of protecting the iPad when not in use, but I have to remove it to use my iPad most of the time. It's going back to the store...

      Looks okay but, feels bad

      Case looks okay. The edges on the case are very sharp so it it very uncomfortable to hold this case.

      Design flaw along the edges.

      I’m on my 3rd case now, and they have all developed a strange serration along the open edge, right where my right hand touches the case with the flap folded bac I’m on my 3rd case now, and they have all developed a strange serration along the open edge, right where my right hand touches the case with the flap folded back. It makes for a soft but nonetheless uncomfortable serrated knife-like edge. I don’t know if it’s from being stretched as I type, or my skin's pH balance, but the formation of tiny serrations along the edge in the exact sample place on 3 examples leads me to believe there’s a defect in the material used to seal the edge.

      Lack of colors, is not leather, and magnets are iffy

      I like this case for its simplicity. It is durable and tough enough to withstand scratches etc. However, where the colors? my 10.5" has four different Apple br I like this case for its simplicity. It is durable and tough enough to withstand scratches etc. However, where the colors? my 10.5" has four different Apple branded screen covers in four different colors so I can swap out based on my mood. Choices here are dull gray, pink, and dull white. Second, not leather. Is a bit slippery in the hands and has also just slid out of a bag sitting on the edge of my bed. Luckily I have carpet in my bedroom. And since not leather, has a spongy plastic feel. I don't mind that, but leather always has a better texture and will not show smudges, etc. I have fingerprints all over the case. Facetious, yes. But at $79, I can be that way. Third, this new attachment style is great and all but I feel is a design misstep. Because although they went and solved how you pair, store, and charge the Apple Pencil......they did it in a design locked way. No matter whether I buy the Apple Pencil 2 or not, I have to accept this new design. I don't much care for protecting the back of my iPad. I use it in the house and at work and I am not particularly clumsy. I have never dropped any of my iPads. The problem is that the magnets on this new back design are not strong enough. There have been moments where I would tri fold the case to set it down on the table in an upright posture and the 11" thing just dropped right out of the case. I get that it shifts around because these magnets are not latching like the previous three gens, but still.... So, I guess with Angela leaving they are abandoning any fashion sense with the iPad and turning it into another one of their charcoal dull gray product lines where engineers solve problems some people didn't need solved.

      Worst Apple product I've ever bought

      I've been an Apple customer for 30 years, and this is the first item ever that I'm returning out of pure disdain. I was on the verge of returning the iPad Pro i I've been an Apple customer for 30 years, and this is the first item ever that I'm returning out of pure disdain. I was on the verge of returning the iPad Pro itself, until I took it out of the Folio again to use it and realized it wasn't the iPad that felt awful, it was the Smart Folio. It's sharp, the two sides together add quite a bit of thickness, the magnets are iffy at best and it'd slide out in certain situations which worried me. I'm coming from an Air 2 with just the basic Smart Cover, which never had any of these problems. I'm returning it without a clear replacement strategy since they don't offer a Smart Cover for this model, but I know I'll need something that functions as a basic cover and stand and will be shopping 3rd party I guess. Terrible, just terrible — and the price! $80 for what feels like extremely cheap materials compared to my old Air 2's Smart Cover even, is flat out insulting.
