    Highly recommend

    I just purchased this product for my iPad Air 2, after having the older leather model on my old iPad2.

    I really like it! I ordered Black, but the color is actually a dark dusty grey, which I prefer to solid black. It's lightweight (lighter than the old leather version) and doesn't detract from the feather weight quality of the iPad itself. Quality seems to be excellent so far. I would recommend this product to anyone seeking a slim cover without a lot of bulk at a good price.

    Stupid step back

    Who was the brainiac in Cupertino who thought it would be smart idea to not offer the full one-piece Smart Case for the iPad 4, and why do they still have a job?

    So now we're stuck with the POS removable cover that does nothing to protect the back of the unit, and which falls off at the worst time. We are also stuck with having to buy a close solution to what was a perfect idea.

    Steve Jobs must be rolling in his grave. RELEASE A SMART CASE FOR THE IPAD MINI 4 YOU IDIOTS!

    Overpriced and poor

    This case is not even close to being worth 40 dollars. Not only that, but it makes a horrible flimsy "stand". Very cheap design. Not recommended.

    This is my second iPad mini and second smart cover. The new smartcovers for the Mini 4 are too big. They overhang and there is too much slack on the hinge. Very poor from Apple.

    It covers my "pride & joy" really well.

    I find that it does a good job. Much better just to buy it from Apple and know the product works than to shop around. If I was to say one bad thing, I wish the cover was already attached to the back case, but I am sure there is a reason it is not.

    I like it

    It looks and feels good and does just about anything a iPad cover should do. More than most. The only thing I don't like about it is the crazy price! To get the full case you need to kero your iPad safe... You have to have this and the back which all is about $100!!! Crazy!!!

    Nice cover

    This is a pretty nice cover for your iPad Mini 4. For those who said the size is wrong, you probably do have the cover for the Mini 3. I ordered one of those by mistake myself before exchanging it for the correct one. The right cover fits the Mini 4 perfectly, and aligns with the silicone case for the back and sides.

    It's probably a bit pricy for what it is, but it looks good and looks like it will offer good protection along with the tempered glass screen protector I put on. I probably would have been fine with just the screen protector and the silicone case if the case went around the full frame, but it's open on the left side for this cover to attach via magnet, of course. The magnet seems strong enough; not so strong that I'd want to yank the cover, but strong enough for every day use if you treat your electronics with care.

    I've tried sleeves too, which work great, but don't offer much protection when the iPad is out... Next time I might try a front and back cover because I'm a bit afraid of this magnet deal. But the silicone back cover itself is just really good, and paired with this cover offers nice all around protection.

    It does what it says...

    While I might not love it as much as I did for my last iPad mini, I still feel it's an essential accessory. The slight bit of over hang on the right side is the only draw back, but it's designed that way to line up with the detachable back which I'll probably end up getting at some point as it's a nice combo and I like being able to take the smart cover off while still having a protected back.

    We also have an iPad Air which has a full leather cover. I wanted the same for our new iPad mini 4, but Apple haven't produced them. Instead I had to pay extra, (and being Apple it's not cheap), for a front and separate rear cover.

    The rear cover alone doesn't fully protect the unit because the side is taken out to make room for the front cover attachment. The front cover is forever accidentally being pulled off because it's only held on by a magnet on the side. So for me, it's a very expensive product which is not fit for purpose.

    The only positive is the quality of the material used. Hopeless!

    Flawed Design

    Who was the "genius" at Apple who decided to change the design into a 2 piece configuration? Also to make the Smart Cover and case available only in silicone is a really bad decision. Have you ever heard of static electricity? Please bring back the leather 1 piece Smart Cover similar to the iPad Air 2 that someone else also mentioned. The static generating silicone case and cover are not a good idea for any electronic device especially at the premium prices we pay for Apple products.

    Poor fit

    I'm not sure why the Smart Cover (or Smart Case) was redesigned, now the single cover is HUGE and floppy. The hinge is much larger, so the whole cover slides around and is not aligned when trying to hold the iPad Mini 4 and read. I will be returning this and the designer should be fired, it is that bad. I want the Smart Cover like on the Air 2 back for Mini!

    Its big!

    The Ipad mini 4 cover seems to be designed for an older mini version. It is a few milli-meters bigger than the ipad. its just not a good fit!!

    Doesn't fit properly

    I'd had a smart cover on my 1st gen iPad mini and it sat flush with the iPad and the edges aligned perfectly. On this new iPad Mini 4 smart cover, it neither sits flush or fits properly, it seems the hinge rubber is too long and that the cut out for the smart cover itself is a little bit too big for the iPad... The result, it hangs over the open edge, not something i'd expect from the normal precision accuracy of Apple Products.

    I hope it gets better with time, but still, its gonna annoy me.

    It's ok

    It looks good and I like that the iPad switches on/off by just closing the cover. However, it leaves marks on screen due to it's paneled structure. Also, gotta be careful as it comes off easily and sometimes iPad can slide off. Would probably buy the two-sided version if buying next time.
