  • Overview

    Thin, minimal design.

    The lightweight, durable Smart Cover protects your iPad screen without covering up its aluminum back. So your iPad still looks and feels like an iPad — just with a little extra protection.

    Polyurethane design.

    The Smart Cover is made of polyurethane. It also features a soft, color-matched microfiber lining that helps keep your display clean.

    Magnetic connection.

    A hinge magnetically aligns the Smart Cover with iPad for a perfect fit, while magnets inside help it stay put.

    Keyboard stand.

    The Smart Cover does double duty as a keyboard stand. Fold it back to tilt iPad into a comfortable writing position.

    Wake on open. Sleep on close.

    Open the Smart Cover, and iPad magically wakes up. Close it, and iPad automatically goes to sleep.

    FaceTime and movie stand.

    The Smart Cover folds in just the right places to become the perfect FaceTime and movie-watching stand.

      Won't stay attached.

      Don't waste your money. I ordered it after checking my new iPad (2017, 5th Gen) was comparable. Arrived home today to find out it won't stay attached. I can get Don't waste your money. I ordered it after checking my new iPad (2017, 5th Gen) was comparable. Arrived home today to find out it won't stay attached. I can get it on there, but any attempt to "open" the iPad with it on results in it coming off. Contacted Apple Support and they won't do anything for me.

      Better than the original in my opinion.

      I was a little nervous seeing the bad reviews on here but wanted a cover like I had for my iPad2. I have to say the 1 star reviews must be from people who have I was a little nervous seeing the bad reviews on here but wanted a cover like I had for my iPad2. I have to say the 1 star reviews must be from people who have an older iPad and the designs don't match up. I have the 2017 model and this cover connects fine. Does turn the iPad when you open it and as far as staying connected I can hold the cover and dangle the iPad from it waving it back and forth and it doesn't come off. Something I couldn't do with the original. I had wished there was a leather option but touching the new one it has a surprising leather feel to it, you wouldn't think it was plastic. Over all I am very satisfied with it and its minimal design for protection. Buy with confidence.

      Smart Cover for New iPad 2017

      Ordered this for my New iPad and it won't stay on. Magnets are week and when you open, it comes off. Prior models worked well, but not this one.

      This product is a total waste of money!

      I bought a new cover for my father because his old one was very worn and falling apart (but still served its purpose).

This new one has a weak magnet and won’t stay attached when trying to open it and/or prop it up. Since it was a gift, it has been more than 14 days so unfortunately I cannot return it. Do not buy! Previous versions were much better...

      Worn Out After 4-1/2 Years

      This is not a protective case; it won't save your investment if you're prone to dropping things. But this is the perfect foldaway cover to protect the screen fr This is not a protective case; it won't save your investment if you're prone to dropping things. But this is the perfect foldaway cover to protect the screen from scratches and serve as a minimalist stand, all without adding much thickness or weight. If that's what you're looking for, buy this. It's actually worth the $40. The magnetic catches are strong and never break loose unexpectedly, but after 4-1/2 years of heavy daily use the foldable "hinges" have lost their stiffness and become frayed at the edges, so the cover no longer stays tucked to the back of my iPad while in use. The rubberized outer surface has worn through the paint around the periphery of the back of my iPad, revealing hints of light silver aluminum underneath, but that's actually become a favored patina. I'm buying another one, just not sure what color.

      C’mon Apple... is this the best you can do?

      This thing is worthless. When I removed it from the box, I thought they’d sent me half of a case! I think for 40 smackers Apple could send me something that has This thing is worthless. When I removed it from the box, I thought they’d sent me half of a case! I think for 40 smackers Apple could send me something that has a back! The magnetic connection is weaker than the alphabet magnets on my fridge! Back it goes! Very disappointed.
