Apple Leather Smart Case for iPad Air, Blue

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

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 42 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Apple Leather Smart Case for iPad Air If you have purchased an iPad Air then look after it by putting it in a very attractive and light Smart Case. My wife was very happy with the range of colours. It's very easy to fit and offers great functionality making everyday use a breeze. (Make sure you buy Smart Case for iPad Air and not iPad Air 2nd Generation, as it won't fit.) 14 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect fit My Ipad Air is 18 mths old and in the interests of economy I first bought just a cover, Having regretted it for a long time now I splashed out on the case - I should have done it sooner. It's a perfect fit, unobtrusive and light. 13 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good quality Very good quality and fast delivery,I bought it for my husband and the colour and fit is perfect. 09 June 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed Service I purchased an iPad Air together with the Smart Case for my wife's birthday and after reading the reviews regarding purchasing the correct case I decide to visit the Cardiff store to ensure I got it right. An 'experienced' member of staff gave me the iPad together with the Smart Case which she assured me was the correct one. Last night my son set the iPad up for my wife and guess what ?? It does not fit the case. I suppose I should not have trusted the assistant and checked myself again after making the purchase. I now have a 24 mile round trip to change the case. 05 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fits well and protects screen and back Bought the red case and it looks great. Good quality leather. It fits the iPad well - no danger that it will fall out and automatically activates iPad when opened. 16 February 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Another iPad Air 2 fail! I too purchased this item for my iPad Air 2 not realising that there are different cases for different iPad models. I ordered this item during the Black Friday sale when it was reduced and had it shipped to a relative. I am living at a BFPO address and they flew out with it a few days ago. It annoys me that I didn't research this item enough prior to purchasing it, it annoys me even more that there is nothing on the John Lewis website to advise compatibility. I now have to ship this item back overseas (if John Lewis customer services ever provide a return code) and re-order it from somewhere else (no international delivery) at full price with yet more delivery charges. One very unhappy customer today. 11 December 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by IMPORTANT - does not fit iPAD Air 2 If you have an iPAD Air 2, you need JL product code 70474227 for the correct case... at first I bought this one, as it was the only one in the JL store, so the staff assumed it must fit an Air 2, but it doesn't - the holes for camera and microphone don't line up. I hope JL will amend the description on its website to make clear that this is for the original iPAD Air only (which people tend to now call Air 1). It is confusing, and Apple does not help by packaging them exactly the same; however the range of colours is (for now at least) different. Thanks to JL customer service for sorting it out - and delivering the correct case for a swap to my local Waitrose next day. 03 December 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Doesn't work with Ipad Air 2 I bought this to protect an Ipad Air2 but - it simply doesn't fit. The Camera is part covered and the volume switches are in the wrong place as well. Useless. Very disappointed. It's being returned. 28 November 2014
