    I'm wondering if it's a mistake or if Apple is going to release new colors and they are offloading a bunch of stock?? I took advantage of it whatever the case

    They have a listing for a 'latest model' at normal price. So they must just trying to clear out old stock.

    If you want to see something weird. Check out the grey silicone case. Then click on the now hard to find white silicone case.

    There's no difference in the 'latest' and the cheap 12.9 though, right? Except maybe that magnet to hold the pencil?

    Really just luck.

    I was going to return the Targus folio I bought earlier in the week, and was curious what other cases they have.

    I bought the leather Smart Cover/sleeve from apple earlier in the week, I hate spending the money, but they just feel sooo amazing together. I picked up one of the $4.99 ones, but I don't think I can part with the leather one.

    What's the difference between the first gen cover and second gen cover though? Thanks for the notification!

    This is ridiculous !

    I just picked up a 12.i Smart Cover charcoal for 17.70 the other day

    https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/12-9-charcoal-gray-smart-cover-17-70-ymmv.2057222/

    Don’t think I’ll bother tho for 10 dollar difference or so (used red card) to deal with returns and driving around

    I would buy this without hesitation tho

    At 5 bucks no brainer

    Works perfect too with gen2 I’ll bet the difference is inventory categorization.

    I just hope crazy sales for silicone case don’t happen cause I just bought a good shape one off eBay for 35 haha :p

    Probably an inventory thing, and the leather covers being released.

    I picked one up, it works fine on the second gen.

    As I said above... my guess is the magnet may be a little stronger and will hold the Apple Pencil like the 10.5 Smart Keyboard (and I'm assuming Smart Cover) as seen in this video:

    That went quick

    None anywhere nearby and sold out online

    Was gonna get one for pickup but it was stuck in processing way too long so they probably sold it as soon as the store opened

    I’m still ok w getting mine for 17 from target on clearance but. I always like near-freebies

    Yeah, I just picked up a new 12.9 iPP yesterday. Was hoping to find a Smart Cover for a good deal.

    Best Buy tried to deliver mine yesterday but for some reason sent it as certified and no one was home
