Apple Leather Smart Case for iPad Air, Brown

Product information

The Apple iPad Air Smart Case covers your iPad Air - both front and back - yet still retains the thin, light design of iPad Air. Like the Smart Cover, it folds easily into a stand for reading, typing, and watching video. And it automatically wakes and sleeps iPad on open and close.

  • The slim-yet-sturdy iPad Air Smart Case protects the back as well as the screen. So your iPad is fully covered on all sides.
  • The Smart Case is made from beautiful, aniline-dyed leather and comes in six rich colours. It also features a soft, colour-matched microfibre lining that helps keep your display clean.
  • Open the Smart Case, and iPad magically wakes up. Close it, and iPad automatically goes to sleep
  • The Smart Case does double duty as a keyboard stand. Fold it back to tilt iPad into a comfortable typing position.
  • The Smart Case folds in just the right places to become the perfect FaceTime and movie-watching stand.
  • Compatible with iPad Air.

Q & As


Apple Leather Smart Case for iPad Air 4.8 5 30 30
Very good After reviewing many covers for the I Pad we settled on this one even though it was more expensive, we were not disappointed as it complements the product & the quality it as expected. We cannot compare it to other covers but we are very happy with our purchase. 09 July 2014
A must The iPad Air fits in safely and securely and protects the back and front well. It's a quality product, light and nice to the touch and makes the iPad very easy to carry around. It turns the iPad to sleep quickly saving the battery power when not being used. It is, however, rather expensive. 08 July 2014
Great purchase I bought this for my wife to protect her iPad Air, and she loves it. Good quality, light, sturdy and smart looking. There are cheaper ones, but they don't offer the same protection. We bought a cheaper one - and returned it. 08 July 2014
Classy little number We'll thought out cover for the I pad air, easy to use, looks good and you are also able to use it as a stand, it also closes easily and does its job protecting the I pad air. I like it. 08 July 2014
"Smart" case! Apple's Leather Smart Case for the iPad Air does what it says on the tin. It goes without saying that it fits the IPad well and, although it's expensive, (I did take a deep breath when I saw the price!) it feels like a quality product. Using the case as a stand for the IPad by folding up the front flap, (you'll know what I mean if you check the case out in store) is not particularly effective. It doesn't stay in place well, but it does raise the IPad to around 30 degrees from the horizontal. Closing the case gives a satisfying click and puts the IPad into sleep mode. Opening it wakes it up, so really easy to use from that perspective. Is it worth the money? I'm afraid you'll have to make your own mind up on that. I did look at other options but this case just felt "right." A big plus point is the weight. It's a lot lighter than some other brand cases which does make sense if you're buying the IPad Air! 08 July 2014
Cover up Seems to be useful and provides protection. This one is very posh. 28 June 2014
Probably the best case you can get for the Air but a bit pricey I've always loved Apple Smart cases. You know they will fit perfectly and the quality is very good. This one is made from leather and it looks professional. It includes a magnet in the cover to wake the iPad when opening, perfectly positioned cut outs for the camera and connector. There are also perforations where the speakers are situated, a hole for the microphone on the back and top and there's an Apple logo embossed on the rear. My only criticism with this case is that the volume buttons on the side are also covered by raised leather 'dimples' which makes them difficult to operate, they need a lot of pressure. I tend to use the onscreen volume control instead. It's rather expensive as well for what it is, but quality is very good. It also does not add much extra weight to the iPad air. Note that this will only fit the iPad Air and not previous iPads. Looks nice in black and less likely to rub off or stain. 27 June 2014
the best case/cover to buy I had the smart cover for the Ipad 2 which of course offered no protection from even the shortest drops, then I bought an after market rear cover and it broke. This time I bought this case from the outset for my new IPad Air and it is very definitely the best case I've used so far. Its a snug fit, it protects every side, angle and aspect of the ipad 24 June 2014
