    Just purchased a new Air 2. Also bought the white Smart Cover. I am noticing that the cover does not unlock my 2 about half the time. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. The same issue happens when I use the Smart Cover from my wife's Air 1. Would you return the Air 2 because of this?

    Wondering. Is this a leftover Air smart cover, or a brand new Air 2 cover? You will see on the back of the packaging a picture of the Air 2 speaker grill to show it's the new one.

    I don't have my Air 2 to confirm yes, but from what I've read elsewhere the iPad Air covers are suppose to work fine w/ the Air 2. I think the white cover is new for the Air 2 anyway. So, yes, I would def. take it in, along w/ the white cover and see which one is defective.

    This is a brand new Air 2 cover I bought at the Apple Store yesterday. It is the new white cover.

    Thanks. I don't think it is the cover, since the same problem happens with two different Smart Covers. I know it is no big deal to slide to unlock, but I hate to think I spent all this money if there is something wrong with the iPad itself.

    Mine has the same problem

    I just got a new iPad air 2, but my cover is a generic one. But it doesn't lock or unlock the screen. The setting is confirmed turned on, but no functionality. I have even tried moving a powerful magnet around the edge of the iPad air 2 to see if it does anything and there is no locking or unlocking.

    When I use the same magnet on my old iPad 2, it unlocks and locks repeatedly. I'm thinking about bringing it back to the Apple Store to possible swap it out. I paid way too much for this for it to not work.

    The Smart Cover is now the same for the Air and the Air 2. They no longer come in Leather, only polyurethane. Bah.

    On two occasions my iPad wouldn't wake up after opening up these cases cover. I had to do a home button/sleep button restart.

    Weird, I would try one more cover, or bring both to Apple store and see what they think.
