That works with the smart cover/smart keyboard? I have the Moko hard plastic case right now, but it's a little thicker than I would like. There's a few on Amazon but none that I have seen explicitly state they work with the cover/keyboard.

I have this one:

https://www.amazon.com/LUVVITT-CLEAR-Smart-Keyboard-Compatible/dp/B071SL1ZWM

They messed up the original batch and the opening for the ASK & ASC and they do not fit on the current version. I did a little surgery, however, and am happy with the case. It is clear and relatively thin, but does offer some corner/edge protection.

They are supposed to have the updated version (which they have promised to send to all current owners for free) in the next week or two. If you can't find something before the updated version comes out I think this would be a good choice.

I received my replacement case from Luvvitt today. The opening for the Smart Case/Smart Keyboard has been fixed and now works fine. Overall very happy with this case. I also broke down and ordered a Poetic case with pencil holder in smoke gray, but that won't come till next week.

Ordered this TPU back case that's compatible with the SmartKeyboard and also has an attached section where you can store your Apple Pencil as well! Ive used Poetic before and their products are pretty good. Definitely look into getting one.

Have you received this yet? If so, how are you finding the fit of it?

I ordered this exact case last night as I have the 9.7" and love it.

I also ordered this for the 10.5 and it is brilliant. Works with both my leather smart cover and ASK. All the cutouts are perfect as well.

No it turns out that the seller refunded my money since they said that the batch they produced turned out bad in some way. Tried again on eBay to re-order it but couldn't. Checked again and it says it is out of stock. Guess I'll have to wait a bit.

That's great to hear. Hope I get mine soon.

I sent Luvvitt support an email and they told me the clear TPU Smart Cover-compatible case would be available on Amazon.ca in 1-2 days. Hope it is. Does anyone, with this case, has a screen protector on it?

I purchased this Poetic case in transparent gray for my 10.5" IPP and I love it. Fantastic fit and function. Couldn't be more pleased.

I got my replacement case from Luvvitt and asked for a refund because two of the corners of the iPad don't seat deeply enough and there isn't a lip between the edge of the case and iPad.

That sucks to hear. I was hoping this case would fit well. You don't happen to have any photos of this issue, do you?

No, I don't. Let me clarify, though. The case does have a good lip around all sides and two of the corners. It's just in the other two corners where the edge of the case is flush with the corner. It looks tacky to me, but it may be OK for others.
