  • 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.

      Why do products get worse, not better?

      This product is cheap. The front cover is fine. It fits. However, the wrap-around part is very flimsy. It's hard to get into the hooks and still doesn't hold th This product is cheap. The front cover is fine. It fits. However, the wrap-around part is very flimsy. It's hard to get into the hooks and still doesn't hold the iPad up very well. I have an old cover that is sturdy and holds the iPad up at a good angle. It has a groove that the iPad fits into. Why doesn't the new one have that? I'm disappointed and am already looking for new one. Don't buy this product.

      Lucky thing my iPad didn't break

      I can't think why anyone would use this cover. I had a similar tri-fold cover for a gen 1 iPad that was terrific. I can see why that older design won't work w I can't think why anyone would use this cover. I had a similar tri-fold cover for a gen 1 iPad that was terrific. I can see why that older design won't work with the layout of the newer iPad's speakers. But this version, with just the magnet to hold it to the case, doesn't stay attached. Not in my hand, not in my bag, not when supporting the iPad. Had to return it.
