I will add, though, that with the iPad Mini, since she is brand-new (just got her this past Tuesday) and since her back is black, while I have the Smart Cover on the front and use her with that around the house, when she's not in my hands, just like the other iPads she is always positioned on a stand rather than lying flat. When going out, I pop her into a RadTech sleeve that I had bought for one of the earlier iPads, and that protects her back from junk in my purse. Because the sleeve is meant for a larger iPad it is really easy to pull the iPad Mini out of it and to pop her back in. This is what works for me.....

Ditto, no back protection & so far so good, but I do worry!

It covers them

It has like a circle in each corners , don't know why they made it like that

But is fine , the circle is actually the skin protector



Everything is covered except the usual speakers , headphone , volume buttons

If you're looking for a back protector with complete coverage, go with bestskinsever. The corners are completely covered. It's cheap too.

How is installation compared to screen protectors? I suck at screen protectors. Thanks

Way easier. Since it's slightly stiff and thicker than a screen protector, it's really easy to apply. Also since you can use the camera cutout as a starting point, it's easy to get everything lined up.

I also have to give iCarbons a ton of credit. While my installation went smooth, I called them about getting more Apple cutouts and they offered to send me an entire new custom back skin. My new one will not have the cutout for the Apple logo and will instead be one solid sheet of carbon fiber. Best customer service I've received in a while.

Here's their install video.

Been using just a smart cover for my iPad mini for about a week now. No problem.
