    I liked the old version better

    • Written by Terry M from Waupaca

    I recently got a 3rd generation iPad Air, and because my Smart Cover for the old one didn’t fit, I ordered this one. I assumed it would be similar the the original one, which was shaped like a thin book, and wrapped around the entire device, snapping securely in place. The design was changed significantly so that the new cover attaches to the bottom edge with a magnet. Unfortunately, this is not terribly secure, and although I know it’s not recommended, when I accidentally lost my grip on the device, I grabbed the cover, and it came off. Fortunately the iPad only dropped a few inches onto a soft surface, but with the original cover, I never dropped my iPad because of how securely the cover fit. In addition, the cover can be folded into a triangle to prop it up somewhat, but the new version doesn’t do this as well as the original. If I could go back to the original cover I would, but alas, it is a centimeter or so too small now. I was very disappointed in this new version of the Smart Cover! Bring back the old style!
