    Looking at ordering different cases and skins for my iPad that will arrive May 28th (Canada order). Can someone post a pic of where exactly the light sensor is on the top area? I see some cases that cover half the black bezel and others covering almost all of it. I don't want to cover up the sensor so I'm staying away from the full coverage ones but wonder if the half coverage ones will still leave the sensor visible.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    It is that little hole above the screen. You can't see it? Look for it under a bright light.

    He's not got it yet! Did you not read his post?

    Anyway op the light sensor it at the top bang in the middle and it's half way between the screen and outer edge. Hope that helps

    It's ¼" from the silver bezel edge. A case that covers half the black frame will cover the sensor.
