    Don’t Buy

    This is my 3rd Smart Cover, All for different iPad models. The previous covers were great and this is why I purchased this one. Apple have changed the design and now instead of fitting the iPad into the cover, the cover attaches with magnets and covers the screen only leaving the aluminium back uncovered. The magnets are also weak and comes off the iPad all the time. There are plenty of after market covers available that will protect your valuable iPad much better for a fraction of the price.

    Don’t buy!!!!!!

    What a mistake! I thought this had a back cover to protect the ENTIRE FRONT AND BACK OF THE IPAD. But no, what you are paying for here is JUST A FRONT COVER WITH A MAGNET!!! This thing leaves the ENTIRE IPAD IN THE BACK EXPOSED!!!!

    Why on earth would I want to buy just a front cover? The whole point is to purchase a nice cover that lets you protect the entire ipad from any scratches.

    0 stars but this thing does not let you submit a review unless you select “a star.” Total waste of money. I am surprised with Apple. They used to sell a full cover years ago for the ipad air and I swore this was what I was purchasing. Clearly I was dead wrong.

    Also, the majority of us that use the ipad 6th generation also use the Apple pencil. You should make more covers for this ipad that include an apple pencil holder and not make someone buy a separate thin sleeve JUST TO HOLD THE APPLE PENCIL. Ridiculous.

    It's a useless product, i'm not blaming anyone 'cause apparently I never knew what a Smart Cover is, I bought it thinking it was a regular case that covers the front and the back but it's isn't
    Don't buy this it's just an expensive piece of leather. I don't understand the innovation of this. If I could give ZERO stars I would.

    Not too impressed

    OK, it doesn't weigh very much, so that's good. Not too impressed with the rest of it. Was hoping for a cover similar to the one for my old iPad that covers the front and rear of the iPad. The magnet does not hold the cover on nearly as securely as it should. Also, no corner or edge protection if you drop it. I will return this and see what else is available from other vendors.

    This is the first time I have ever written a review because this is the biggest waste of money ever. Apple should be ashamed! Can I give it 0 stars?!

    Lasted 5 years and going to buy a new one

    I only wanted the front covered so the Ipad would slip into my purse easily and take up less space. My cover has served me well and now I am ready for a new one.

    Good product

    This product is fine, I like the pink color in person and I think the product is functional. I do not understand the other reviewers commenting on the magnet because the magnet is so strong I couldn’t have STOPPED IT from attaching to my iPad. This product only safeguards the front, which is silly to me, but I also get that the back of the iPad is very beautiful and it’s sad to cover it up. I just think there should be something in the main description about this because I’m not surprised shoppers would think it covers the entire device.

    Poor coverage

    I am so disappointed and cant figure out how to return it. I have purchased covers over the years and they continue to get worse. It doesnt cover the back plus it keeps sliding of and doesnt fit. I so wanted it to work. Its a beautiful ipad i have to keep it safe. The envelope is nice but its not a stand and not sure it was money well spent.

    Last year i got an mac pro cover and it craked a few months later i should have known better

    iPad midnight blue Smart Cover

    I just received my new midnight blue Smart Cover for my new iPad (5th. generation) and I LOVE it! The midnight blue looks so good with my new, gold iPad. The magnet is super strong... exactly like my old black cover for my 2013 iPad. My new tablet and cover exhibit understated beauty and I am so pleased with the look of the gold and blue together. I am super careful with all my Apple products so this is the perfect cover for me! Open the magnetic cover and the iPad is on, close it and it turns off immediately, saving energy. Yes, I do love my new Apple iPad and my new Apple cover!

    Wow! I feel swindled. 45$ CAD for something that only protects the front, and also that magnet comes out so easily if you have the iPad on your lap. This is easily 20-30$ overpriced.

    This is such a disappointment. I will have to return it.

    Wouldn't expect this from Apple

    This cover just doesn't work the way the other covers do. The magnet doesn't align with the iPad and it easily gets unattached from iPad. I would never expect low-quality product like this from Apple but there goes my 40 bucks..

    Get a case

    You will feel ripped off if you purchase this. Only covers one side. Seems about $20 overpriced for what it accomplishes.

    Great case for minimal protection

    Great case to show off the iPad beautiful design. It is minimal and classy. I'd recommend this case to those who are extremely careful of their device.

    weak magnet

    It's unfortunate that there aren't more case options for the new iPad 9.7. I wanted a full case (back and cover) but the smart cover is currently the only option. The magnet is so weak that it won't hold the iPad upright horizontally and won't stay connected when holding it vertically in one hand. Incredibly over-priced at $40 and useless to boot.

    there are 2 dust lines visible down the screen but works as for covering the screen while portable.

    Good, quality product

    The cover is nice and light, yet sturdy and well made. It's held in place by strong magnets. Perfect for protecting the screen and for use as a stand. The last Apple Smart Cover I had lasted for years. Holds up very well.

    Love this cover

    It is very light, and installed perfectly with its very powerful magnets. The microfiber inside is soft. I love my new iPad and cover!

    I recently purchased the 2017 iPad to replace my now almost useless iPad 2. The new iPad is fantastic and is sold at a very reasonable price. However, this Smart Cover for the new iPad is much lighter and feels cheaper than the one I had on my iPad 2. Seriously, when I picked it up I thought a part of it was missing - it's so light.

    The magnet that holds the cover on is quite strong, but the metal hinge design from the iPad 2 Smart Cover is missing on this product.

    It looks just as nice when it's on the iPad though. I hope it lasts as long as my new iPad does.
