    Not sure what all the fuss is about - Great Product

    Just received my Stone Smart Cover for my iPad Pro 9.7" Rose Gold. People have left reviews talking about how "big" it is, the lip on the right-hand side just extends maybe 2mm over the glass covering? The iPad Air 2 Smart Cover did the same. This is obviously meant to be flush with the smart case but works perfectly fine and snug by itself.

    Yes, It's Actually Disappointing & Detracts from Overall Feel & Quality

    Coming from an iPad Air 2 to the iPad Pro 9.7, I have the same setup as before - I simple apple smart cover on the device. The extended edge (and possibly the new magnet locations) make this cover shift and slide like my previous one never did.

    [ This seems to be a change to allow the edge to extend to account for the girth of new silicone backings Apple has introduced. At $70, I tried one of these backings, but it made the iPad feel very heavy and cheap. I bought the pretty device to look at it, obviously! And unlike my iPhone 6 Plus, which I prefer this case on, I have no need for one on my iPads, as I'm never mishandling them to a risk of dropping.]

    The end result makes me really want to revert to the Air 2, and I would have returned the Pro had it not been for the Apple Pencil support. (I really would forego the extra power, everything else, just to get that quality precision feel back) It's a shame.

    Not designed for the 9.7 inch iPad Pro

    This cover isn't designed for the 9.7 inch iPad Pro. Read the description very carefully as this cover is designed to fit the 9.7 inch iPad Pro only if you also buy the silicone back cover. Without the silicone back cover this Smart Cover hangs over the edge and the left side is very loose and harder to hold compared to previous Smart Covers that were design for iPad.

    It's an iPad Air Cover!

    The Smart Cover for the iPad Pro 9.7 is the same size as the iPad Air Smart Cover. The magnets have simply been reversed. If you like the perfection of Apple products you will hate this Smart Cover! I'll be returning it as I do not like adding any other cover or back to my iPad. What a sneaky thing to do! Very un-Apple!

    Perfect cover and case

    I wasn't sure about buying an over priced cover and case, especially after reading the number of negative reviews. Yes, the cover on its own will overlap the edge of the iPad, but is not a big deal. However it fits perfectly with the case in place. Unlike what some said about the magnetic strip on the cover that off comes easily, I don't seem to have that problem. Quality is also exemplar with good quality plastic, fit and finish. The only quibble I've is the price.

    Doesn't fit and comes off!!!

    My husband bought the iPad Pro 9.7 inch and the Smart Cover as a gift, I am very disappointed with the cover. It is flimsy and easily comes away from the iPad. I'm appalled that Apple don't offer a smart case as they have done previously... And in order to replicate the same protection as the smart case, the back and front need to be purchased separately - costing almost £90!!! If we had known that this product was so poor I would have gone with a third party case. You just assume that because it's an Apple product, it will do as it says on the packaging. Very disappointed!!

    It's Too Big!

    Previous iPad smart covers fit perfectly, aligning neatly with the edge of the bare iPad. This one is too big and flops around when you try to fold it back. The excuse I've heard is, well, it is meant to pair with the back cover. But I don't want the back cover, I'm trying to keep this thing thin and light and the back cover makes it bulkier and heavier.

    Okay, you might say. Just use the iPad Air cover, right? Wrong. In their quest to maximize profits, they've reversed the polarity of the magnets in the new iPad so that older covers won't work.

    From a company that prides itself on attention to detail, this is just embarrassing. If I could give this zero stars, I would.

    Gets dirty fast...no way to clean

    Unlike the silicon back cover this front cover gets dirty easily. And nothing I have tried will clean it. Poor design Apple.

    Remember the elegance of the original leather smart cover...

    Dear Apple, I'm not sure what you've done, but this new cover is horrible. It doesn't fit "like a glove" like previous covers. As everyone has reported, it "hangs" over the edge, and is quite annoying. Please bring back the fit and the elegance of the original leather Smart Cover. It was a beautiful product that perfectly complimented the design of the iPad.

    Or just fix the size of this one.

    Did anyone ever hear of clear??

    I never review anything but I wanted to say a few things. I don't understand while they never use clear. The iPad, iPhone are beautiful, I have the rose gold, I want to be able to see that and the engraving. I too bought it because I didn't want to use it unprotected. I also bought the back. I will get a clear one when available, Probably spigen. I had the ipad with retina, I had bought a case from apple that was the same idea but it was one piece, for 50. I loved it. Now with both pieces the cover comes off and it does not prop up the iPad well like the other one did. As others said flimsy and I am always knocking off the cover, Mostly I am so disappointed how it does not support well when trying to prop. I like to read and prop, always collapsing. I have to agree with a lot of others that the quality of Apple is not what it used to be, I have everything apple so hard to change now, but I am very unhappy with their products as of lately.

    Poor fit without silicone case

    The smart cover is designed to be used in conjunction with the silicone bottom case so be aware if you plan on using the smart case on its own, the cover itself is larger than the screen and overhangs the iPad by around 2-3mm.
    Apple should have designed the cover and case as separate items like before. Very disappointed.

    Horrible cover will be returning it...

    Cover doesn't fit the iPad Pro 9.7 and is very awkward to hold, hope apple fixes this cover and offers something better for what is a great device otherwise. Other negative reviews are spot on with the same issues I've experienced as well!

    Really wanted to like this...

    Bought both the silicone Smart Cover and the silicone back for my new iPad Pro 9.7". I ended up not using the back because I wanted to use my device naked, but I wanted to keep the Smart Cover for propping up the device. This is when I noticed the Smart Cover was a bit wider than the iPad itself causing it to be uncomfortable to hold both with the flap on front and folded to the back.
    I recall previous iPad smart covers were perfectly flush with the device itself but I assume Apple designed the iPad Pro Smart Cover to only be flush with the silicone back.
    Ended up returning both. I really hope Apple makes a set of smart covers that sit flush with the edge of the iPad if they choose not to get the back portion.

    Too Big!

    Not a good fit like previous generations, way too big, returned to store.

    Worst assumption of what's good for users

    Smart cover makes the 9.7 Pro look like a loser wearing someone else's clothes. Not at all comfortable to hold. I'm sure I dont want to cover my iPad with a extra silicone case. Extremely disappointed with the product. Hope Apple respects customer preferences.

    Glad I kept the box

    Had to be the most awkward cover I've ever owned. It doesn't fit and moves around far too much when holding. Unfortunately I'll now need to look in to 3rd party options. It's a shame as the Air2 leather cover was amazing.

    Give us a choice

    Why does Apple assume that everyone wants to cover the back of their iPad with a silicone cover? Why would want to hide the beautiful rosegold or gold under a piece of plastic? Give us a cover that fits the iPad the way every top cover has fit in the past and I'll be the first to buy one.

    Junk compared to previous leather cover

    First, it doesn't fit. It's too big, as if the cover was made by some knock off company before they knew the actual dimensions of the iPad Pro 9.7". I'm surprised Apple cannot measure their own iPad.

    Second, compared to the leather cover I had on my previous 3rd gen iPad, this is poorly constructed. My old leather cover had a metal hinge that was much nicer than this bendy section of rubber / silicon that stretches and folds around the edge.

    The only nice thing about this cover is that when you open it, the edge of the cover magnetically holds to the back of the iPad so it doesn't flop around. That's actually a really nice feature my gen 3 leather cover didn't have (this is why I give it 2 stars instead of 1).

    I guess this will work for now and I'll hope for a better quality leather cover in the near future... Preferably one that fits!

    I normally don't write reviews but I saw all the negative comments and felt that a real review was needed. First I would say this cover is absolutely perfect. It is made to fit with the silicone case so for everyone that says it fits weird, or hangs over, they clearly didn't read anything before purchasing. I have the silicone case and the fit is precise. The ONLY thing I can say that is bad about the case is it seems very expensive but you really do get what you paid for so there's that. The magnets inside keep it closed and when it is folded they keep it together nice and snug. If you are going to get the case or this cover I would recommend getting the case first simply because the cover will be slightly larger than the screen and is fitted for the cover. All in all great product and the quality is even better in person.
