Does your iPad Mini smart cover lift a little at the bottom?

So, I got the iPad Mini!

I also got a red smart cover for it, but I want to ask, does your smart cover lift a little between the first and second pattern (from the hinge).

If it does, is this normal? Or do I have a defective smart cover?

Mine did a bit out of the box, now lays flat. Took about a day or two of use.

No, no it doesn't.

Sounds like it's defective. Exchange it for a new one.

Mine does this as well. I've had it for a few weeks. Doesn't really bother me.

Quite hard to make that call at this point.

OP can you post pictures of this problem?

No, my dark grey and red (returned) do not do this since day 1. Both stay flat naturally.

God, I feel stupid.

Looks like the iPad is subject to the same laws of air resistance as anything. There was air trapped when I unfolded the cover. I carefully folded and unfolded the cover and now it's seamlessly stuck on the iPad.

Good thing the op stuck it out and worked through his problems.

Eman its worth fully investigating problems before rushing to return items.
