So I just got the Smart Folio in a completely unique color haha. I really wasn't expecting this.

I ordered it straight from the Apple website and it just arrived today, and I was a bit confused. I ordered the cactus color, but it came in a very bleached green, light blue color, kinda teal-ish (sorry, I'm not good at describing colors).

It's definitely not cactus or surf blue, and I think it's the "Cornflower" color they sell for some other iPads. but not the iPad Pro.

What do you guys think? Did I win the golden ticket? Is Tim Apple himself gonna give me a call?

I've seen posts here and Reddit that the color looks different depending on the light and angle, anywhere from blue to teal, I have even seen photos from different angles, including close to the color your photo shows here. I think it is entertaining to say the least!

Lol, who would have thought that this is such an issue?

I'm now thinking whether I should keep it or return it to Apple. On one hand, the color is basically unique, on the other hand, I don't like it as much as I do the real cactus green one.

Have you seen another cactus case IRL? Because mine is exactly the same color as yours.
