I am leaning towards the Silicon/Smart cover combo and using my magic keyboard if/when needed. I haven't seen many pics of the white combo as I have only seen the dark gray.

I want to get the silver or gold iPP and wanted to see pics of the white silicon/smart cover combo and if anyone had any feedback on this material. Maybe a dumb question but does the white get pretty dingy or is this material very good at being able to clean easily and keep nice?

Thanks for any feedback and pics!

I use the white silicone case on my 6S Plus and it stays pretty clean. I wipe it once a week or so with a baby wipe and it's good to go.

Thank you for the feedback! I really like this look and dont mind shelling out the extra cash for this combo as I am not a fan of the ASK and will be using a magic keyboard when needed so the smart cover and silicon back is perfect.

Just needed to decide between the gray and white.

I hope you get this and post pictures. I long to see the white combo in the flesh, er, silicone.

I was supposed to get it this weekend and my wife stopped me stating she wanted to get it for me for my birthday in a couple weeks. Silly!

I have that combination. Can post pictures later tonight

Yes!! I would really appreciate that. Can you also show how much is exposed of the IPP if any when the complete combo is on?

Thanks!

[doublepost=1454571818][/doublepost]I'm taking pictures under yellow lights, and didn't color balance, but you should be able to get an idea of how the colors match.

The smart cover will get horrible and dirty whereas themcase can stay clean. I Strongly suggest getting a dark cover or it will look disgusting in a few months no matter what you do.

my silver (to match iPhone and MBA) IPP is on it's way from apple, i was tempted by the white smart cover but figured i'd be unable to stop it look terrible in a couple months time so went for the charcoal option instead.

Well thats unfortunate to hear. The white looks so sleek and modern with the white ipad combo.

The silicone is made of quality material, and has a soft touch to it. I have a lot of dust on my desk due to lack of cleaning, but haven't had much difficulty cleaning the case.

Time will tell, but I think the white should be fine.

Yep, it's the smart cover that will get dirty, not the silicon case.

That looks fantastic! Do you have a Smart Cover? Do you have a feeling of the material and longevity of the white and ability to keep clean? Thanks again for sharing

I'm debating whether the smart cover is worth it... I'm thinking of buying a sleeve to use with the silicone case instead.

IPP, Smart Cover and apple pencil arrived yesterday. Smart Cover is definitely worth it, I find that I'm using it to make drawing comfortable not only when at my desk but also when the iPad is on my lap. Great product.

I am loving it as well. Only dislike I have if you can call it that is that it is so tight and close to the screen/face of the pro its sometimes too hard to open as I have to slide a fingernail underneath to get in there.

Great problem to have i guess as it protects the screen nicely

I have a dark smart cover and white back case which I got in November at the same time as the ipad pro. The white has stayed clean (or is cleanable - I wipe it off) so far. I switched to the leather pad and quill case a couple of weeks ago but it is because I prefer leather. The white stayed cleaner than I had expected

Thats great to hear. I get concerned of the felt inside as its consistently on a desk or being touched on a surface to get dirty but eh, its a case. It is doing what is supposed to do and a level of dirty is expected. I love the look of it. Almost stormtrooperish. :)
