Apple Smart Cover for iPad mini 1, 2 & 3

Product information

The Smart Cover has been specially designed to complement the iPad mini thanks to its thin, durable cover that magnetically aligns for a perfect fit. It also automatically wakes and sleeps your iPad mini, provides you with a handy stand for reading, watching, and typing, and its microfiber lining will keep your iPad mini screen nice and clean.

Thin, minimal design - The slim, yet sturdy Smart Cover protects your iPad mini screen without covering up its durable aluminium back. Consequently, your iPad mini will still look and feel like an iPad mini — just with a little extra protection.

Magnetic connection - An aluminium hinge magnetically aligns the Smart Cover with your iPad mini for a perfect fit. Magnets inside help it to stay put too.

Wake on open. Sleep on close - Open the Smart Cover, and your iPad mini will magically wake up. Close it, and your iPad mini automatically goes to sleep!

Keyboard stand - The Smart Cover will also provide you with a keyboard stand. Simply fold it back to tilt your iPad mini into a comfortable writing position.

FaceTime and movie stand - Your Smart Cover will fold in just the right places to become the perfect FaceTime and movie-watching stand.

Polyurethane design - The Smart Cover is made of polyurethane and comes in six great colours. It also features a soft, colour-matched microfibre lining that helps keep your display clean.

Please note: iPad mini not included.

Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Value for money Our Apple IPad cover lasted only 3 years which was disappointing considering the expense. This cheaper cover is perhaps not quite as good but it is perfectly OK and is far better value for money. 03 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for my needs I wanted a slim cover that I could use as a stand too. This fits the bill and is a great colour. The magnet is strong and the cover is easy to use/fold into a stand. The iPad locks when you close the cover. 03 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Apple Smart Cover for iPad mini 1, 2 & 3 This cover is fine, well made, slim and unobtrusive and is highly suitable for me to use in my handbag which is what I bought it for. 11 August 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by not what was required Did not understand there would not be a rear cover, so returned the item. 04 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by ideal for the apple mini good value and it keeps the tablet in good condition 14 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very useful I am very pleased with this cover. And would recommend it to others. 30 June 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not so useful Probably my mistake but product not so useful as this cover only protects the front of iPad 19 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent cover, great stand. This cover must have been designed alongside the iPad, not as an afterthought, as it is so perfectly thought-out. It clips magnetically to the iPad, not need for fiddly fastening. With minimal bulk & weight, it protects the screen perfectly, and folds into a stand simply and easily. It does not present problems or get in the way - eg it does not get in the was of the camera viewfinder, just flips out of the way. It also makes your iPad easier to grip. When you close it, it puts the iPad to sleep, when you open it, it wakes up, with no time-lag. If you have password protection, it presents the password screen. No fiddling. I find it invaluable as a stand, especially in the kitchen. It is no-fuss functionality, quick as thought, and I am so glad I chose it. A note re. comments on the colour: it is just a reality of Internet shopping, indeed of photography, that colour reproduction is not always perfect. If in doubt ring the store or read reviews. Mine is the pink, looks orange on the website, and I can tell you it is a mid-tone pink, slightly on the salmony side, neither too intense/garish, nor too washed-out. I love blue or red, but bought the pink for visibility. We all have our own colour 'language', so staff can answer your questions before you buy. This is a classy product and will look nice anyway, but more importantly it is protective and convenient. 30 April 2015
