The title states it all. Do Mini with Retina Cases fit old Mini cases?
Fair enough but it is enough to cause one of the corners of the rMini to not fit into the first gen case (its a folio style by Devicewear).
damn, I just ordered that case thinking it would probably work.
do you confirm that there is no way it works, or you just don't want to try too hard not to break anything?
I had used an iPad 2 case on my iPad 3 before (the difference between the two was greater than the difference between iPad Mini 1 & 2), so I thought it should be OK.
Worked for my zagg folio keyboard and slim leather folio, no problem.....
I wouldn't trust it.
Any rigid-type case that depends on a high tolerance fit to stay attached will either not fit or will break prematurely due to increased stresses on the attachment points.
