Pictures speak a thousand words I guess. Bought four weeks after the Air launch date due to constraints in the supply chain. I wouldn't say I'm a heavy users of my iPad, few hours on an evening on and off. By day it's sits in a iPad holder all safe and sound. The obvious problem is using the home button cause pressure on this little bridge of leather about the lightning port. I use my home button a lot, never got into the gestures when they introduced them! Guess I'm holding it wrong lol. For the price, and it's an apple product I would have expected better than this. It has to be the most terrible Apple product I've owned, along with the three piece cover/stand, which bloody idiot decided it was better than four panels. So, anyone else having this issue ? I've spoke with Apple, emailed the photos and I'll except nothing less than a full refund. I've bought another case, which was half the price, and works far better, they have even removed the small piece of the case above the lightning port. They've realised it would be a weak point.....go figure.
