    The smart covers for the Mini 4 (but not the Mini 1, 2 & 3) will work with the Mini 5.

    The iPad Mini 4 cover should fit the Mini 5 per the compatibility section on Apple's accessories page.

    With my Mini 4, I found I preferred a third-party stand type cover over my original Smart Cover. Hopefully they same company will make new ones optimized for the new Mini.

    I had one of these on my old iPad 4, and liked it a lot. Wish the new ones came in gray, like the old one!

    Since the new Air uses the exact same Smart Keyboard, probably yes.
