      I dearly miss the old iPad Smart Cases.

      This case is very well put together and feels like it's made of the same high tech silicone material Apple uses for its watch bands. Not overly rubbery, as prev This case is very well put together and feels like it's made of the same high tech silicone material Apple uses for its watch bands. Not overly rubbery, as previous synthetic cases were. That being said, I miss the days of being able to purchase a full front and back genuine leather iPad "Smart Case." They retailed at less than these non-leather replacements. Those leather cases wore beautifully and developed a great patina with use. And they protected all sides of the iPad, which these new folios don't. However, I start thinking about Apple's new (and unfortunate) pricing scheme and wonder what they would have charged for a leather version today?!!! Aesthetically, I'm tired of the dark gray after having it on my old iPad as well. I would have gone with white but I didn't want to have to clean it all the time. Why not offer ProductRed, or simply black? I also am shocked that Apple left their iconic logo off of the back of the folio. I always thought the logo added a touch of class, and I do miss it.

      Works, but too bulky and heavy

      The new iPad Pro is so light and thin that it’s a shame they didn’t make a screen-side-only cover. This adds 0.49 lbs to a 1.4 lb device. Unnecessary, but I sus The new iPad Pro is so light and thin that it’s a shame they didn’t make a screen-side-only cover. This adds 0.49 lbs to a 1.4 lb device. Unnecessary, but I suspect it was done to address the camera bump. The keyboard folio is even worse. I hope they redesign both down the road.

Seems it will attach to the back of the iPad with magnets, leaving the side exposed for the pencil to connect to. That should be cool and one of the best features of the new iPad Pro models. I’m just a little disappointed in the dull colors offered and also that there is no  logo on the back (I assume this is related to making the back connect securely). I’ll update this review after to get my new iPad on November 7.
