    I'm not sure if this has been asked but if the magnet while attaching or removing the cover so happens to touch the screen would it not harm it?

    You always hear to keep magnets away from tv sets what's the difference here?

    Magnets don't hurt LCD.

    Older TVs (CRT) are sensitive to magnets, that's where you heard it.

    Read up on cathode ray tubes if you're interested why.

    Although rumour has it that iPad 4 may have a magical CRT display to get around the yellow tint problem. Same width and height, but thicker. A lot thicker.
