  • 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.

      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.

      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.

      Awesome Minimalist Case!

      Fits like a glove and works flawlessly on my new iPad (2017, 5th Gen) . I have no idea why others are complaining about the magnet strength? If my iPad is wit Fits like a glove and works flawlessly on my new iPad (2017, 5th Gen) . I have no idea why others are complaining about the magnet strength? If my iPad is within inches of the case it snaps the cover in place for a perfect fit every time. I carry it around in my backpack all day and not once have I had any issue with the cover coming off.

      Just Works

      Just bought this cover at the Apple store for my new 2017 iPad. Works fine and stays put. Kinda like the idea of covering only the front screen. Why buy a beaut Just bought this cover at the Apple store for my new 2017 iPad. Works fine and stays put. Kinda like the idea of covering only the front screen.

      Cover works perfect on my iPad 5th generation

      The cover fits perfect on my iPad 5th generation. Again, this is not a case but simply a cover to protect the front of the iPad which is what I wanted. I wanted The cover fits perfect on my iPad 5th generation. Again, this is not a case but simply a cover to protect the front of the iPad which is what I wanted. I wanted something slim and light weight to protect the glass surface only. The magnets are strong enough that I can lift the iPad by the cover and jiggle it without the cover detaching from the iPad. The material is fine and the workmanship appears top rate. I was hoping that this cover would be available in leather like my iPad 1st generation cover. However, there's nothing wrong with this cover.
